A letter to you...

I've been thinking about you a lot today. As I was driving home, I heard "If I Die Young" and it was right before I got home from work where Rae was watching my kids. I wanted to cry and hug her and tell her I was thinking of you. But, I can see that she has so much going on with school and working and helping take care of Ed and Anthony. 

I know we didn't talk all the time, but I felt we were so connected because of our families. There are so many days when I wonder how your family is doing, Ed, the kids, your mom and dad and Danny. And of course, Michelle. I'm trying to be there for her and help her heal, but I know that she sometimes feels lost too. If I miss you, I can't imagine the pain that they are all going through and dealing with every day. Sometimes I wonder what Rae is thinking when she sees my kids hug me or talk to me...does she think "I want to hug my mom" or "I want to talk to my mom too." They are so strong.

I still see your name in my phone...I want to just send a quick instant message to ask when we're all going to make time to hang out and go dancing. I even think of the last time I saw you at the Sierra Lamar fundraiser at Clos La Chance--you were so happy to see the kids and see them excited about Rae being there too. And, you said you were so happy that I took Michelle and got out of the house after having the baby because you could see the difference in her simply because she had a moment to breathe. I never told her that story, but I've wanted to for a while.

So tonight I'll cry for you and and write you a letter here...the only place I can think of to just get my feelings out. You are so very missed and we think of you all the time.

Logan's Famous Words

Well, it's obviously been forever since my last post and there are so many things I should blog about just to catch up and make note of what's going on in life...but that's not happening.

Instead, I must make note of a funny story about Logan. He was at his PreK class today and apparently here's what he told his teachers:

"I like to play drums on Mommy's butt."

Yep, that's my kid...really nice. LOL!

That's Random

So, my friend often (actually it's been a while) posts on her blog with the title "That's Random." I thought this story fit into that category...
I was in Starbucks today and the girl in front of me seemed to have this white powdery stuff in one section of her hair. I say, if you're not going to wash your hair and you're going to use that spray shampoo stuff (which is totally acceptable if you can pull it off)...make sure you brush it all out and there isn't a big chunk of white powder on the side of your head when you have a low side ponytail going on.


One day, I picked up my 9 year old cousin to take her to my house. We were at a stoplight near a gas station...a gas station that I think is one of the few that still has an actual pay phone. She said to me "hey, isn't that one of those phones they have on the freeway?"

Audio Books Update

So, I finished Water for Elephants in a couple of weeks or so and I thought it was excellent. When you're listening to a book, it's like you really get to know the characters. It was a really great book. Then I listened to The Help which I just finished last week.This book was amazing! I was completely hooked. I actually didn't want it to end. I can't wait to check out the movie.

Next up: Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe. I'm interested to see how this one goes since it's actually narrated by him.


My three-year-old thinks it's completely normal to go looking for your clothes in a pile on the floor because we are so bad at putting the kids' clothes away. He says "can you help me dig?" Sad, I know, very sad...
