It's been nearly a year since I last updated my poor, neglected Live Journal. I finally downloaded Chrome and now I have no problem typing my entry. Thanks, pondhopper, for the idea!
I will update more, soon, I promise, but I did want to quickly peak in from work and say, "Hello!" There is so much to tell, I really don't know where to begin. It would make one very long single entry, to be certain! So, I think I will post once a day, about a certain subject in my life, until I'm all caught up. I also have to pay for my LJ and upload userpics. I'll try to do that tonight.
My main purpose in coming here just now was to look at my entries from this date in 2010, as the anniversary of my mom's passing is today; in fact, at 3:39 p.m. ET. There is just something about the first anniversary of life events, and then the five-year marks, that impacts us a bit more. Off to read them!
I look forward to catching up with all of you the most.
Our daughter just called us. She arrived home to find that Brandon had decorated their apartment and strung up all the reasons he loved her. Then he asked her to marry him!! We are so happy for them and very excited!
I'm stuck in a chair at my hair salon while highlights and base color do their job. Then I am driving right down the road to watch Dylan while Shaun and Jeena get out for a couple of hours.
Meanwhile, Mike is at home waiting for Ethan to arrive and they will go to see the movie Frozen together. Amanda is joining them. Ethan is staying overnight! I'm sure he will want to bake cookies tomorriw. It's supposed to snow!
No pay until Monday, so no shopping this weekend. I will wrap the little I have. I really should practice making braciole on Sunday, which I want to serve on Christmas with my lasagna. And if my Christmas cards arrive, I can get them signed and ready to mail. If they don't, I will knock them out at work next week.
Tomorrow Mike is repointing the fire brick in our fireplace so that we can have safe fires this winter. :-)
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
