Remember the old saying that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb? I don't know about where you live, but this year our animals changed places!
Leftovers: Dirk's Bow-tie Pasta with Sausage from Friday night. There is no better pasta dish.
This week, we're on the hunt for recital clothes. Checkin' out the resale shops--and we have some great ones here!
Note to self: don't ever bother telling kids that a paint is darker on the wall than on that little chip from the hardware store.
It's one of those months when it's been fun to be a Republican. Much more fun than it was the past four years. You know, when we had a lot of RINOs in charge of things.
And hey, our IRA is worth $4 more than it was last week.
CJ's been feeling a lot better in the past week. Of course, "much better" still leaves her in a state that you and I wouldn't want to experience, but it's been nice to see her in less pain. Last week she received several injections in the base of her skull to block the occipital nerves, and though this isn't a permanent "fix" it does give her some relief and helps the doctor know just where the pain is located. I appreciate your continuing prayers for her.
Sunday evenings are usually set aside for Tapestry of Grace history/ philosophy/ government discussions with our daughter, two sons, and two grandsons. The Papa is in his element, and never more than when he gets to spend time on the Carolingian dynasty, complete with whiteboard diagrams:
I'm leaving on Wednesday to head for California to be with Lyric as she recovers from Tuesday's shoulder surgery. The recuperation is not expected to be easy, and although she can accomplish more with one arm than the rest of us can with two, I'm hoping to "shoulder" a little of the TLC that she'll need when she comes home. I'll try to pop in here a couple of times while I'm gone, but don't worry about me :-)
Have a great first week of April! (I know, I KNOW!)
