I just finished cleaning out the fish tank. Random I know. Why post about it? Well, it was on my list of 'things I need to do but don't want to so keep putting off.' It was green and icky and well over due, so today I whipped out the gear and cleaned it. This blog has been on that list too. What to do with it? Continue on, posting intermittently, somehow find the time and inclination to post more often even though I haven't yet, change it up? This was essentially just the kids space, and easy way to record those day to day events and trips. It's the longest running blog I have now, probably because it's about everyone else, so I don't suffer huge doses of insecurity and delete it. Gah, my brain hurts, I remember why I was putting this off.

What I know for sure is I'm not closing up shop or running off somewhere new. I'll try to post more, but probably won't. Maybe as well as updating you I'll ponder the Universe from time to time too, I'm pretty confident next to no one is reading these days, so it can't hurt.

Boy do I understand the insecurity/ run away mentality. It take courage to stick. I miss your thoughts. I'll take them when I can get them, happily.

I'm always reading anything you write and always admiring anything you photograph :)

This is a gorgeous memory log of so many amazing adventures with your beautiful girls.

I always have a smile on my face when a new post pops up on my google reader :)

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
