Memorial Day

Spirit, that made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have been MIA in Michigan the last several days. We were scheduled to return on Sunday, but illness (poor hubby), teething (poor baby), and major overeating ("poor" mommy), have us staying a couple extra days.

My hope is that you are all out there enjoying the wonderful weather (if you are getting it!) and your families. We are all recovering. Though, that "Memorial Day" cake is lookin' pretty good . . . when will I learn?

I'll be back soon!!! I can't wait to hear what you've all been up to! Please take care . . .

No wonderful weather here--in San Diego if you can believe it.

I shared your overeating blues--I did it at book group yesterday. Ugh.

Re: your comment of plants dying because they don't bring attention to themselves.... yep. No houseplants for me. And no fish anymore too!

Snort.....overeating mommy!

I don't know any mom that would do that. Especially one that just snorfed down ho-ho's for breakfast and a diet coke.

I've missed the blog world. But your humor was especially missed. Well that and your cutest cheeks in the world baby.

You did drive right past me.

Did you wave hello? Just kidding.

You should have stopped by for a bathroom break or playdate. ;)
