Today is my birthday. No big plans but I’m looking forward to seeing the surprise gift that my oldest daughter has created. She’s been huddling with the younger kids and videotaping and yesterday asked me for a blank disc to make a copy of ‘a project.’ Whatever it is – it is sure to make my day!

    Thanks for your update–I know that I’m not your only reader who has been worried. Here’s hopes that your Christmas will be a quiet and happy one, and that the year to come affords some of the right kind of surprises for you and your family.

    Is anyone getting concerned about our blogger? It’s been over 2 weeks since the last post. I am wondering if everything is okay?

      Hi all – Sorry for the long absence- partly due to the hectic nature of the season with lots of holiday events, and partly due to the fact that our on again, off again internet access at the park is gone. This means I have to go to Starbucks or some other place with free wifi to blog and now that the kids are out of school that means taking us all to starbucks! Also I’ve been helping my friend with her ebay and warehouse as she’s had a lot of sales before the holiday (this has helped me pick up a few gifts for the kids).
      The weather has been dismal (unending rain) but we aren’t in any areas of flooding or mudslides so don’t worry about us!
      I have a post I’m working on that I hope I can get up in the next day or two.
      Happy holidays all!

    It sounds like your birthday is a good one–so nice that the kids got together to make it a happy one as well. Next year has got to be BETTER, right?

  9. Happy birthday. We’ve been following you and admire you hugely!

    We don’t have tons of books, but you can go to our website and pick out an eBook and we’ll send it to you for free. Just send an email to the address on the site and we’ll then upload it to that address. I think the Pebble Pups would be great for the kids, but you might enjoy Uranium Daughter, since it’s a story about a woman who basically lives out of her jeep, although she’s an archaeologist. Actually, pick two eBooks and we’ll send both. Happy Birthday and keep on hanging in there!

      My oldest made a cute video/slideshow with one of my favorite songs as the soundtrack. My youngest daughter made me a very sparkly card and my son made me a paper airplane! My faraway daughter is sending one of her school photos. I think I made out!
