but one for tear-filled eyes.

Oh, the tragedy!
It’s hard to be a teen and wonder if you will EVER find true love.
Seems like you’ve been waiting forever.

Oh yes, and trying to assign love to every boy you know. I can’t wait to share the rest….there are some doozies.

Fun stuff! I have my own share of cringe-inducing poetry from the 80’s. Sooo dramatic!

But hey, for a 14 yr old, you weren’t half bad!

Have you heard of the groups of people that get together and read their old journals in bars?

I think you would definately impress everyone with this poem. It’s got it all!

Excuse me while I escape to my bedroom to go eat chocolate chips and listening to Morrissey–my favorite things to do in 85. :)

Thanks, Laura. At the time I thought I was going to be the next Edgar Allen Poe or Emily Dickinson. LOL

Secret Agent!I haven’t heard of those people and I’m so glad you shared that site. I’m going to go check it out.

I did it. You know you want to! LOL

Mornings with Nan

Yesterday we took the boys over to their Nan’s house for a visit. We don’t see her very often and the boys had been complaining about it so we decided that we needed to call and set something up. The boys were so excited! See, we used to see each other all the time, at […]

I think that is the coolest lego bag ever as well! Awesome!

Isn’t it though? I can’t sew a lick so it will be interesting to see how mine turns out. LOL

I can’t WAIT until Ian starts saying stuff like that!

hee hee

I so love having a boy. :)

Marin,

I’ve been trying teach them other euphemisms that might not sound so bad to elderly relatives, like twig and berries. LOL I though Sean was going to fall over when I told him I was doing that.

I love having boys, too. I was always one of the “gross” girls so having boys has really brought that out in me full-force!

Pinwheels For Peace 2007

What a joy it was to set out our pinwheels today and see the wind catch them and set them spinning! It was a thrill for me not to mention the boys and I’m incredibly glad we participated in this event.

Yay!
They’re beautiful!!!
Meant to say earlier that the pictures of the process are gorgeous.
I’m gonna link everybody up who participated today – friends, I mean.
DOn’t they just make your heart happy to see them spinning?

whimsigal - September 21, 2007 - 7:53 pm

It was such a beautiful thing! And the expressions of sheer joy on the boys’ faces as we set them out and they started spinning was priceless.

Thanks again for posting about it! I wouldn’t have heard about it otherwise.
