For his brother

Zach made this and asked me to email it to Eli to say “Hello”. He’ll never admit it, but I think he misses his brother a LOT!

If you pray…

Please remember this family in your prayers.

A friend just told me about another friend of hers who died Saturday morning. They don’t know yet what caused her death; her husband just found her dead on the sofa when he got up on Saturday. I don’t know how old she was, but she must’ve been around my age or younger, as she just gave birth to her second daughter this January. Her other daughter is just a little younger than Zach.

I don’t want to share her name for privacy issues, but please pray for her husband and her daughters. My heart is breaking for them. No one should have to lose their mother at such a young age.

Life is just so fragile, isn’t it? I want to go hug my own kids, but one is sound asleep and the other one is in Florida. :cry:

My apologies

If you logged on earlier today and saw the raunchy ads that Google had planted in my sidebar, please forgive me! I don’t want to write exactly what they were referring to, as I don’t want to give any search engines more fodder for finding me here.

Let’s just say that one of my columns was about a TV show I like, that comes on Wednesday nights on ABC. It’s about the mother of a family going to be the mother of another family while that woman comes and lives in her house for a while. Another clue: take the opposite of “husband” and the opposite of “keep” and pair them together.

Anyway, apparently Google chose ads based on that ONE column title, and posted crudely-written ads for things that the Bible is pretty clear that men and women shouldn’t do–even if they are married! 8-O

So, no more Google ads. And that’s fine with me! :mrgreen:

Grandparents. Gotta love ‘em.

Eli is spending ten days in Florida with my parents. Mom called me from the grocery store, wondering what kind of yogurt to buy for Eli. She commented that he hadn’t drank any of the milk she bought for him.

“What, he hasn’t been eating cereal?” I couldn’t believe that…he loves the stuff!

Mom sounded guilty as she laughed. “Well, on our first morning here, there wasn’t any milk in the house. So Eli came up with a new concoction and he loves it. He’s eaten it every morning!”

In a Dry and Thirsty Land

Don’t ya hate it when you have something for dinner that was loaded with hidden sodium, but you didn’t realize it at the time, so you find yourself chugging water hours afterward, and it makes you so bloated and waterlogged that you can’t slosh off to bed even though you really want to?

I hate it when that happens.

I’m prone to morning eye puffiness anyway, but after a night like tonight, I wake up looking like this:

Kari Apted…IS….Magoo!

Well, with more hair…
