I finally remembered where this was written down and decided to post it here where I could find it. It was written by my Dad in 2009. I admired it so much and was going to have it framed, but he beat me to it. It hangs in my room above my dresser. Sometimes when […]
The 1D blanket is a bit interesting looking. It looks like they are sleeping on her in a kind of 2d way.
sometimes you don’t realize what really grounds you until you don’t feel grounded anymore, and you’re treading water to figure out what is suddenly missing. 2012 was a disturbing year for me, not because of my immediate family, but because some things I didn’t imagine would go the way they did… did. People I thought I could […]
This is from a few weeks ago, but I love this performance by my daughter’s school band of “Kitsune – The Fox Spirits’. We are always so proud of the band. AND.. you can’t leave without hearing “Songs of the Whalemen”
for the USCIS to say, “You’re Approved”. Several of our compadres on VisaJourney who filed around the time we did are getting approved. We think we should have the word sometime this month. This means Ian will be “good to go” (his favorite American saying… one of them) for 10 years until he HAS to […]
I got a call from school around 10:15 this morning from the school nurse. Brit had tripped and landed on her elbow. The nurse was recommending an x-ray, so I picked up Ian on the way to school, called the doctor on the way, and arranged an appointment. (Well, it was more of an “Brit […]
It started with this .. present opening.. .. a few international phonecalls to our dads living overseas.. .. a trip to Lauritzen Gardens, where we viewed lots of interesting gardens and rode the tram (it was a hot day!) 2011-06-19 Then we dined on amazingly grilled amazing steak and corn-on-the-cob. It was a good day.
We spent a few hours Saturday at the Summer Arts Festival. It was interesting to walk through the artist’s stalls and see what they had for sale. Brit bought a signed photograph taken of a polar bear underwater. We’ve framed it and hung it on the wall. The band at the festival was […]
My parents flew out from Italy. It’s been their first trip to the US since they moved to Italy (temporarily) last year. It was nice to catch up with them and show them around the bits of Omaha they hadn’t seen yet. This is us (sorry, Ian is taking the picture) laughing because Brit […]
So, we’re winding down on one of our “projects” that has been going on for several months. It’s been a few months on the edge of my seat, really. Have you ever had someone say, “I don’t wish to do that. Do this instead and then you won’t have to ask me anymore.” So you […]
in a pleasant sort of way. http://thatcloudlookslikearabbit.com/blog/2009/so-here-was-my-morning/

Happy birthday to my wonderful daughter, who turns 10 today! She’s been such a blessing in my life.
So, The Little Kid has started back to school (last week). It’s all very middle-of-the-summer for school, but the rest of the families around here seem to be following the same freaky schedule. Last night was Meet the Band Director and Talk to Him About an Instrument Night. TLK is going to be playing a […]
Wednesday was my birthday. It was the first birthday where Ian’s been in the same country (and even in the same house) with me on my birthday. It was nice to be able to celebrate with him and The Little Kid. I got some nice presents, including a Cuttlebug that I can use with my […]
