Long time - no blog... LOL

Well, illness-wise things have seemed to settle down here. No stomach ailments since last Wednesday. My allergy/sinus issues have returned now though... along with the snow! BLECH! We had 50-60 degree weather most days for the past week, and in the last 3 have dropped below 40 again. We got about 3-4 inches here between yesterday and this morning. As Dad said - it wouldn't have mattered what day he decided to leave - that would be the day it snowed!

I left work at 2 yesterday to drive Dad down to the airport in Syracuse. His flight was supposed to leave for the first leg at 4:45, but there was a hold-up because the plane was late getting in. He got to JFK at about 6:30pm, and arrived in Salt Lake City at 12:40am - a half hour early! LOL

I'm off work for the next 3 days, and *hope* to get a lot accomplished. Micaila has half-days today and tomorrow though with Friday off so we'll see. Later today I'll be sending through info to Kristine to get 2 packs of overlays, 3 mini kits, and 3 paperpacks into her store. (Ready, Kris?? LOL)

I have a boat-load of layouts to share...

Journaling:
The two of you have been together since the beginning... Grampy was there when you were born, spent many days in the following weeks with us, and became your babysitter when I returned to work 4 weeks after you were born.

I always felt I had a close relationship with my Grampy, but it was no where near what the two of you have. I know Grampy will have more hours to fill in his day when you start kindergarten in the fall which will mean less time together for you, but I hope you have many more years to learn from him. Treasure the time you have, and hold it close to your heart.
