How I have neglected you this week! So sorry but it just hasn’t been on my priority list. The Accountant’s grandfather passed away this week so it’s been a sad week. He was the nicest man you’d ever hope to meet and I know I’m glad to have known him. The last time I saw him was the first time he saw Sam. I’m glad he was able to meet her and hold her, and that I took pictures so we’ll be able to show Sam someday. Death makes you think. You never know when might be the last time you will ever see someone. Think back to those loved ones who’ve passed on and your last visits with them. Unless you knew they were on their deathbed you have no way of realizing that a casual visit could be the last visit you’ll have with them. Life is unpredictable that way. I suppose this could be construed as a morbid thought process but really, I think it should just make us cherish every moment with the ones we love.

I’m off on Monday but have a dentist appointment so that kind of taints the day. But at least I will get to experience the joys of nitrous which takes the edge off my hatred of Dr. R. I plan on rewarding my proactive dental care with some new running shoes afterwards. Yep yep. I’m just gonna say it here for all to read. I’m back on the running kick. Of course, since I’m so out of shape it’s more of a walking kick right now that will evolve into a running thang soon I hope. I go through spurts with this and would really like it to stick this time. I won’t be running any marathons anytime soon but there is a 5K in April that I’m up for. So there I said it. Now, bring it.

Right now I couldn’t run five feet if I wanted to because I am so stuffed with various goodies from Maggiano’s. Oh goodness, it was so yummy! Sam did great and no fits were pitched. Score! Oh, and have I mentioned that she has been sleeping all the way through the night??!! Over the past week she’s slept all night for at least five of the seven nights I’d say. Of course, now that I’ve jinxed this she will be up all hours tonight. Heh. I’m not sure if this will last or not but for now it is heaven for mommy.

I’m trying to figure out iTunes right now and sync up my shuffle. iTunes has automatically put a bunch of stuff on it that I’ve never heard of and I’m trying to decide what to keep and what to ditch. I’m not really a music aficionado and if it’s not on the radio then I probably don’t know about it. A shame really, as all the good stuff isn’t on the radio. So I hear anyway. I really should expand my horizons in this area. Anyway, I need music for all that running I’m gonna do ya know.

I’ll try to do better with posting here on my little piece of internet real estate but we’ll see how that goes.

  1. We were sorry to hear about the accountant’s grandfather. Those random visits and never knowing when that visit will be the last hit home for me. I remember visiting my own grandmother and grandfather, one of those random visits I nearly didn’t make. Grandmother was bedridden, and we thought she’d be the first to go. Grandfather and I were talking about the old days right after we had moved South and they had stayed up North for the next several years. He commented on how much they had enjoyed my letters to them (I was just a child, and wrote them from about the age of 9 to 17, when they finally moved South too). He said they often didn’t hear from anyone else. Anyway, it’s one of those random visits and conversations I’ll always remember because he died suddenly about two weeks later.
