My big kindergarten boy!

Two more days...

Until Asher starts kindergarten! He is so very excited. Tilley, Riley, and Sean started on the 9th. Tucker did, too, but he's here being homeschooled. Asher has been SUCH a good boy while Tucker and I spend our time doing Tucker's schoolwork. Tucker, Levi, Kaymie, and I have homeschool co-op tomorrow so my friend, Vickie, will be keeping Asher, and Wednesday is the big day! We got his glasses replaced and he has his new tennis shoes and backpack so he's ready to go. He's come a long way from that neglected 5 month old baby we picked up in July 2001. He was so pitiful, he would not make eye contact with anybody, acted like he'd never seen a toy, and his head was as flat as a board because he'd been laying in a car seat for most of his life. He still struggles with delays from that severe neglect, but he's come SOOOO far!

Puke juice!

As I was opening my refrigerator and bowing to the diet Pepsi gods, Kaymie asked for a drink. She picked up the bottle of lemon juice. Now, Kaymie is the kind of kid that would have carried on and on about wanting it. So, I thought why not? I poured her about 2 tsps. and she drank it and cried. Asher decided he wanted a drink, went screaming to the bathroom and said, "you put puke juice in there". Andy and I thought it was quite funny.

More useless info about me...

I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but when I want it, I WANT it. I find it hard to resist Starbucks Iced White Chocolate Mocha!

You Are a Cappuccino

You're fun, outgoing, and you love to try anything new.
However, you tend to have strong opinions on what you like.
You are a total girly girly at heart - and prefer your coffee with good conversation.
You're the type that seems complex to outsiders, but in reality, you are easy to please


My aunt Jane died last night. She was my favorite aunt. I'm so glad she's not suffering any more, but I'm gonna miss her. She was such a sweet, kind, and loving person. She had the sweetest voice and was perfect for her job at Wal Mart...she was the phone answerer/fitting room lady.

Sometime life sucks---I've had enough loss this year.

Can you believe this???

I couldn't believe it when I saw this today. I hope they hang that sucker from the highest tree in Colorado! Patsy Ramsey went to her death bed with nearly every finger in America pointed at her. After living under our own "cloud of suspicion" following Georgia's death, I'll tell you, it's a MISERABLE feeling until you are cleared.

Speaking of which, I'm not sure if I mentioned that the autopsy came back and it was SIDS. We also found out that we had been named as perpetrators with allegations of "neglectful death" pinned to us. Thankfully, it has all been cleared now.

Long time no blog...

Many thanks to all my friends who've inquired about me and my lack of blogging lately. Life has been rough the past few weeks. Daniel moved out unexpectedly because, "I'm 18 and I'm old enough to do what I want to". So, that's kind of had me in a funk. Then today, I've found out that my aunt Jane has probably only days to live. Her body is eat up with cancer. I went to see her tonight and she it totally out of it (which is a good thing), but it's so hard to see her laying there swollen and that yellow color to her skin that one gets when they have liver cancer. Also, I've had problems with Blogger not being able to post pictures or log in. I'll try to do better. Thanks again to all of you who've asked...
