The New Children



Thought I would share my new babies. They have brought life and laughter back into the house, along with little sleep. Seems if they are up, they want "Momma" up. Mei Lei still hasn't learned that she can't nurse on my nose, and Raja wants to be next to me or in my lap every second (except for playtime).

I knitted them the cat bed, and they use it a lot. In fact the first full day without them fighting (they were adopted separately) was the day I finished that bed. Now if I can only get them to use it at night.

Steph, come out, come out, wherever you are.....

You Rock!

Man Shell, I'm so proud of you. I actually wanted to be there, but couldn't swing it. That must be an amazing feeling! I could never do that. Sore?

I love the Easter pictures. The one in the driveway, is where I kicked you! I've felt bad all these years, but when I see you were kickin it with some high heels, I don't feel so bad. Man I wanted those shoes!

Working like crazy, and taking side jobs. My tuition is due 5/22, so I'm doing everything but turning tricks to earn extra money.

I haven't picked up my knitting in a week. Some days, I don't even sit down. I miss it!

Love you,

Steph

We Did It!




Amazing experience and I'm so glad I did it. We finished in 3:22:01 which was better that we hoped had I been healthy, but really great with the stress fracture. Can't wait to do it next year and try to break 3 hrs!

Pre-1/2 Marathon Report

Well, tomorrow is the big day. My friend and I got our official number, and timing chip, and are ready to go. I got some professional insoles that seem to help my heels, so we will just see if the bum foot holds up. Luckily, the rain that is coming is now supposed to be delayed, so we may make it through dry. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have some pictures of me crossing the finish line! I still can't believe we are doing this!

Easter's From Days Gone By

Hey Sissy,

I don't remember getting the "Easter D.K.", but I guess that was my payback for "The Bladder" incident.

You brought up old Easter's so had to pull out the Easter collage.
First of course is the cutest picture. With the exception of Mom putting me in pink yet again!. Got to love the glubs and purse though.










Easter at Nana's circa 1970ish. Had to pull out the "cape picture". I was stylin'. This was the stage when Mom let me have "girl hair" and Steph got stuck with the "boy hair haircut". Probably why she looks miserable. Plus, I had the cape. :)






Here is Easter in Va Beach.
My first pair of platform sandals.
My first bra too. I felt so grown up.

Too bad I had the bod of a 12 year old boy.














Here is my attempt at the "flip the head and give a model pose". Must have been a bright day since we are all at "half-mast" squinting at the camera. We were at an Easter Eg hunt at the golf course. I being the mature teenager refused to take place and stood with the adults.

Mom, nice Betty Ford hair.

Love to all, Shelly
