New Thoughts

Well, I am taking a web development class, and we are now talking about blogs, so I thought I'd start updating again!

I am so run ragged right now I can hardly think! So in the interest of my mental and physical health, I am going to take a sabbatical. Don't know how long, but I'll try to pop in now and then.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.

I've been oh so busy with the new school year. After five years, hubby now has a 'regular' shift, and I'm still adjusting to that, along with Little Guy in kindergarten and a six month old. I'm run ragged.

I got this in my email from a cousin, and it's quite touching.

Busy Busy Busy

School has started, and I've never been so tired in my life. Wrangling 21 kinders, an infant, another kinder (that lives in my house!) and a husband. Yikes!

Where I Have Been

I found this on The Pensive. I thought it was pretty cool!

Do yours here!


It's been a pretty tough weekend here in Phoenix.

On Friday, two news helicopters crashed while covering a police chase. Hubby works for Phoenix PD, so right away he called me to let me know. All we knew is that it was a Channel 3 helicopter and a Channel 15 helicopter. We don't watch channel 15 all that much, but we have strong ties to Channel 3. In fact, the first theme song my son recognized after he was born, was the 'Good Morning Arizona' them song. We watch it every morning, including the segments on the helicopter with Bruce Haffner. That was our first though, oh god, Bruce! But then Bruce came on the air, and we pretty much knew it was Scott Bowerbank. And his photographer was Jim Cox. While Jim didn't get on camera much, his name was always mentioned as the photographer in the helicopter. Watching multiple hours a day, day after day, you get to 'know' the on air personality. It has hit us hard.

The suspect who started the whole thing was caught, and the Phoenix Police Chief said that they will prosecute him for the four deaths.

Then, that same evening, a Phoenix Police Officer was shot and killed by a suspect in a check forgery scam. This hits hard because Hubby works for the Police Department.

Finally, a man was killed while he tried to do an exorcism on his 3 year old granddaughter! Good lord! We made national news with that, and even Geraldo!

We have a lot of good things in our valley, but the last couple of days have been hard on us...

Not that I would...

... but with the following conversation as an example, I could never get away with an extra-marital affair.

LG: Guess what Daddy?

Hubby: What?

LG: Yesterday I walked into Bible School all by myself! Mommy sat in the car and made sure I got in ok because she was running late and had Baby L in the car.

Hubby: Really? (With that look at me that said 'Reeeealy')

In my defense, it is only two doors that he has to go to to get into the church. And he is five...
