  2. Ah ha. At least 100 times a day! Well, not the poo part, that'd indicate some sort of illness, I think.

    First, that picture of you is just beautiful. I'd show you my beautiful picture (tongue in cheek, here, not really bragging), but I like being a bit anonymous after a hoo-raa on an old blog. Some people just don't like it when you express your opinion, if it's not theirs also!

    Second, thanks for your comments. It is always gratifing to find another woman out there walking similar walk. When is your baby due? We're actually talking about a fourth now. I think I must be insane, but there's something about it. We, too, always thought four. But now, baby is nearly 6, so it seems a bit whacked.

    And thirdly, what does your husband do? I have said for years my husband would be one of those artists gone mad, if it weren't for the grace and love of God. You know, chop his ear off like Van Gogh or something. He's the best, brightest and strangest thing in my life! (and our "baby" seems to be so much like him, perhaps that's why I've not had the nerve to have a 4th yet!)

    I'd like to link you up, and just check in from time to time. No need to feel reciprical (sp?), I'm over that little game! Just thanks for coming by, and commenting...I did use to make my own yogurt, and I just may need to again.

  3. Captain Mom,

    HI thanks for visiting.
    Okay, that picture was taken back when I was a musician and had publicity photos taken for some event, then I used that one when I started teaching music, I got a lot of guys who thought they should suddenly learn to sing better:) Then they came for lessons and I had a husband and a one year old, hah. But when I started this blog and looked for photos to post it's the only one could find that didn't take work, and since you'll notice I'm not that great at posting pictures yet, I went for easy, and I like the photo. WOw this is turning into a blog or a LOOONG CHat.

    Baby comes end of Dec. or early JAn.

    Husband: He is a foreman for a construction company, he can build almost anything. His undergrad is in philosophy and he is in the middle of a very long master's degree first in theology and then morphing into an anthropological cross cultural studies type of thing. All in pursuit of the thesis he wishes to write on the topic no one has even considered writing on before let alone done it, which has us potentially wandering all over the world so that he can research it. He thinks more truly original thoughts than anyone else I know and he drives himself and everyone around him mad when he's in pursuit of the solution to whatever nagging problem he perceives in his previous suppositions about the fabric of space and time.

    And of course you can link and come by. I'm here to make friends. Okay, and to write whatever I feel like but you know people who read it are nice to have too.
