Embarassment of Riches, or HoMD #40

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

How do I love today? Let me count the ways:

  • I had a great phone call with my Godson who lives in KC (he called me!). He was full of his usual energy and happiness.
  • As part of a big outing, The Husband and I went to IKEA and found some fabulous stuff, including a “night tower” (a tall dresser I plan to use as a nightstand), new mixing bowls, and a throw for the sofa.
  • There was socializing with one of our friends. We drove over to his house (after the IKEA excursion), and he kindly treated us to a delicious dinner.  Afterwards we hung out at his house and played Wii sports.
  • I busted through the 100-point score ceiling in bowling. What 100-point ceiling, you ask? That would be my 100-point ceiling. But no longer, because our friend (who took bowling in college) coached me to a personal best of 193!

It was a very, very good day.

Milestones, or HoMD #15

Tuesday, January 15th, 2008

I found out today that my 4 1/2-year old godson in Kansas City blew past a developmental landmark.

Little genius learned how to read!

He read a book to his mama.

He read it aloud. He sounded out words he didn’t know.

I could not be more proud! My boy reads!

Read about this momentous event directly from his mama.
