Way Overdue…

Monday, November 29th, 2004

Well, it’s been way too long since I entered anything in the Blog, so here goes and update:

Ed’s currently away in VA on business, so I’m a single mom for the next few days. Charlie’s doing increadibly well both at pre-school and with her riding lessons. And Suzie’s vocabulary is just taking off like rocket! She’s obsessed with doing what everyone around her is doing — “big kids” and all. She just won’t be left behind. Both of the girls are keeping Ed and I on our toes. It’s really tough to keep up with the two of them sometimes. But it’s well worth all the hectic times, lemme tell you! They are both very caring and considerate young girls (when they want to be ;-)

We just had a very quiet TurkeyDay — and we saved the turkeys by going out to a Chinese Buffet for lunch. It was just the four of us, so we didn’t see any point in cooking a big meal at home. But we did get a boat-load of stuff accomplished around the house. We managed to start pulling out the Christmas stuff and putting up some of the decorations. We got a bunch of yard work done — clearing up the leaves and mulching them. Moving the woodpiles that have been plaguing our yard since we had that huge tree cut down. And Ed even started to split some of the wood! I cleared out the crawl-space under our kitchen stairs and we’ve decided to make that the ‘wood cellar’. It’s the perfect place to store the chopped wood and have it accessible to take inside for our wood-burning stove.

So, I hope that’ll do all of you for an update. I’ll try to post more after the December/January holidays. And Happy Holidays to all of you!!! And a very Happy New Year for 2005 if I don’t write before then!!!
