Happy Blog-birthday Speedy =]

A lot has happened in the last 2 years including my commitment to post here at least once a month in this virtual-diary of sorts. It’s comforting to know I can make and keep a promise even if it’s only to me, myself and I. Happy birthday to me!!!!!!!!!

Ahhhh September, autumn is in the air, the stifling summer heat is over which means cranky ole Speedy will soon be cheering “YaY” it’s sweater weather!!!! Other milestones for September…. My cousin Patti joins me on the 60ish side of life… WELCOME my dear; it’s actually not as scary as it sounds. Both Kari & Matt have birthdays and on Kari’s this year they bought a new home so they can have more babies… well one more at least… or so they say… woohoo more grandbabys =] Stella turns 11 months on the 25th, TC started 2nd grade, Riley’s started Kindergarten, the twins are two months old, and on the 30th weighing 5 lbs. Gina Louise got to go home with mommy & daddy… Thank you God! Tommy will have to wait until Thanksgiving but what a Thanksgiving that will be!!! Kathleen, Leann, & Katy are diligently looking for full-time teaching positions and my sweet hubby is working his ass off trying to keep up with all the work we have which means there’s extra $$ to finally complete the office remodel and stairs. We’ve decided to go with a handscraped wood plank floor in oak-gunstock. I’m getting excited to move back in there… our temporary quarters are driving me crazy!!! 09/17/73-2008, marked the 35th anniversary of living in our home…. yep life goes on and it truly is GOOD =] Post script… Damnit it was almost 100 degrees today where is my beloved Fall???

Exploring the links will tell you alot about what makes me purrrrr... I won't be putting up a BIO, you wouldn't believe me anyway. I will confess that words are a passion for me, thus the lyrics link, so I will be adding quotes or bits and pieces of songs that make my heart sing and you are welcome to take and use anything that moves you. I've probably swiped them from somewhere anyway... so enjoy.

Embrace this moment... Remember we are eternal... All this pain is an illusion.
