ALIVE!! she's ALIVE!!!!

Things I have learned in the past month:
1. Young Frankenstein, with Gene Wilder, sort of goes over the head of the young ones.  I guess Teri Garr is only really funny to grownups, and Gene Wilder, as Dr. Fronkenstein,  is just creepy and confusing to a five year old.
2. My youngest has started to tell me that people are going to die. and that is just creepy and confusing and scary to this, now 37 year old.  He also tells me that some of them will come back again, but not all.
3. 37 is not nearly so nice to say as 36, or probably, even 40.  I am waiting for next year to tell anyone how old I am again.
4. This house is really big. When all of our things were put in it there were still three and a half completely empty rooms.
5. Tireswings are endlessly entertaining. really, its true. get one.
6. I can really be a recycling nazi, and people don't find that very attractive.
7. Sometimes I focus on an old way of seeing things, and I have a hard time adjusting to some new realities... letting go of some of my worry and anxiety about bill paying and money spending in our time of 'flush' is one of those things. There is a time for everything, and worry and anxiety should be saved up for anxious times.
8. There are a lot of spiders in the country. many.
9.  I need to not be in a hurry more.  I'm going to work on it.
10.  I missed having a computer, and a virtual network, I did.

see you again, soon. soon, jaguar, soon.

I am so glad you're alive. Don't worry about the empty rooms..they will magically fill themselves. And I plan to steal your "list of 10" idea for my triumphant return to blogging after a 6 week hiatus.

Psst...I was busy self publishing a book. ;-)
