The Day After Monday.....

I got to see my sister and brother-in-law last night for the first time in months. It was so great to see them. I'm just so happy for them and both of our families that he made it home safe from Afghanistan. I'm just heartsick that he has to go back.

Sometimes I feel like the poor relation, or the relative that you dread going to visit. Maybe it's because they are young, or maybe it's because they have so many other things going on...but I hate the feeling that I'm the one that makes them constantly look at their watch to see if they've spent sufficient time before darting out the door. Who knows, maybe I really am just TOO sensitive.
As you all know, I wrote a pretty heart-felt post a week or so ago about my sister. I was really hoping that she would have seen it, because she checks my blog out on a semi-regular basis. Anyway, it's already come and gone and she doesn't even know it was there. That's one thing that sorta sucks about blogging. It's like, once the post moves off the front page - it's forgotten. It's just one of those things. I just hate the fact that she never got a chance to read it.
I'm pretty much the only one on my family that wears my heart on my sleeve, who likes to talk about everything, get my feelings out, etc., etc. I don't have alot of in-depth conversations with my family because I think sometimes it makes them uncomfortable. They just aren't like that. So....the best way for me to pass these feelings on to my sister was to blog about it.....well, that didn't work!!! Figures. I love her so much, and I don't think she realizes just how much.

Anyhoo....I didn't get to see the babies last night, but I do have some updated pictures. Hope you enjoy:

I think I might start calling her "chunk". I just love her little pudgy arms.

Melly is so ME made over....God help her!!!

Sis, Ryan and Melly......I love to see them smile!!

I'm really excited to be blogging daily again.....it makes me feel good.

I hope you all have a great day!!!

~Love, Peace and Bacon Grease~

SHIT!! Well, I had a 31 year-old male stalker from Ohio named Michael, and I just thought it might be you.

So....question #12 - how can I be sure you're not lying to me anyway??

April 17, 2007 3:22 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous Opined...

WOW .... I assure you I am not "Michael." I guess the answer is that you don't "really" know if I am lying. Although I certainly am not. If you would like to dis-continue, feel free. But, if would like to continue ... proceed.

April 17, 2007 3:27 PM

Well, I'm not really sure where all of these questions are going to get me....but I've never been known to back down...so I shall proceed.

Here's something for tomorrow:
