I am incredibly pleased to report that my Mom and Dad will be sleeping under my roof tomorrow night!! It will be my Father's maiden voyage to the Flegal nest and considering I'm always craving the company of my Mother, I'd say that I'm rather *ahem* stoked!
(The jury's still out on whether or not I'm the type of girl that can pull off using that word in a sentence. There's a strong possibility that I am simply not cool enough.)
Looking back at this past year, I've been highly fortunate to have seen my Mother 3 times already. The longing I feel to be near her on a regular basis has not subsided, but I think it's important to acknowledge my gratitude. For the three of you that still miss our family, please note that we'll be in Salt Lake at the end of August through the first week of September! Party at YOUR house :)
Time is curious, isn't it? It seems like it was just yesterday that I was in Utah attending the blissful nuptials of my dear friend. In contrast, the time that proceeds the highly anticipated arrival of a loved one slows down - molasses style - only to speed up again once they're here. Before you can say flibberty-jibbet, Eliza will be in the back seat of the van, sobbing hysterically, as she watches her Grandparents make their way into the airport to catch their plane home. It's somewhat heart wrenching.
Why did we do this to ourselves again?!
In other totally lame news, our laptop cord is under the weather and the prognosis is grim. Therefore, the remaining option for internet use is spending time on the dinosaur of a computer that lives in our spare bedroom upstairs. I declare that it has the slowest internet connection known to man. Loading pictures or video is a laughable idea; which is sad news for you, dear reader, considering I don't have anything to help offset the incessant ramblings of a woman who is procrastinating.
That's right. I'm totally avoiding the mountain of clean laundry that I can hear taunting me from my bedroom. How fun is putting laundry away when you know that you're going to be short about 10 hangers? Not very. In an effort to prolong my time in this comfortable chair a few moments longer, can I just say how much your comments have meant to me?
Seriously, I appreciate them all. I haven't been the greatest participant on Team "I Leave Comments" due to the fact that Google reader appears to be inoperative on the Dinosaur computer. Making the rounds to blog surf is slower without it's assistance. So, until our replacement cord arrives, that excuse will hold. I love blogging. I love that it connects me with friends and family; both old and new. Cheers to you all.
