dear jerry and i have been married 15 years today. somehow this post from june 2007 reminds me of all we’ve been through and how rich our life is. this post reminds me of what seems like a lifetime ago, not just 3 years. dear jerome, we’ve done it. and may we live as though we know how good it is.

if my blog program let me adjust font size, i would make my letters as big as possible to write BAD as a description of this morning…i was stopped in my tracks when micah said, “you are so grumpy it’s like you’re not even alive.” i agree and i will not forget that statement…so we got a snack, went swimming, snuggled up with lunch and bambi…and things are a little better (if i could make the letters smaller, i would make little as little as possible…).
in the mix this morning was a toothbrush in the toilet,
mud being thrown in my coffee cup (and then laughter from the thrower),
toothpaste on the mirror (more laughter),
more wallpaper remains on the floor (which i know needs to happen),
the dog really wanting to play with the kids as fellow puppies,
two broken fiesta plates,
and then eliza coming out with little “blankies.”
i knew that this meant she was in the study
digging through the shelves of fabric.
i chose not to go in there, but to take a picture
of pudgy hands holding a rainbow
of fabric turned blankies for her babies…
