It's Over

It. Is. Finished.

The most painful (literally and figuratively) basketball season of our lives.

The knee? It's healed.
The heart? Not so much.

Watching your 17 year old who has poured his all into a sport he loves so much suffer all season long has been torture. Yes, we know this is part of his story, God's story for him, but it's been a rough one. Brutal even. Michael and I sat on the bench game after game after game, aching for him and what he's been going's been a big family lesson in patience and trust.

And hope for what will come.

(trying vimeo out...liking it so far!)

Aside from 4 basketball events between 2 children this week, I met up with a girlfriend for a the lobby floor at this theater which is covered in movie quotes.

The movie...From Prada To Nada? Silly and not great, but fun for a rainy morning matinee with a friend.

The oldest of my children is about to have a milestone birthday...a birthday that will bump him up a box to the 'no longer a child but a legal adult' category.

And milestone birthdays (that will be celebrated in Hawaii without his mama) deserve a little something special. in a weeping mother who clings to you and begs you to stay little and dressed in overalls forever?

That would be my choice.


Nope...he got an iPhone and I've gotta say, I'm a little jealous.

While Brian was home sick last week, I took many years (yes...YEARS) worth of magazines that I had saved for the recipes and finally cut them all out. Something I should have done forever ago. Next step...putting them in binders, but that's going to have to wait for another time.


That guy that I like so much is working all weekend AGAIN (gotta love 7 day work weeks for 5 weeks in a row...NOT) so I'm hanging here with the boys, one of whom (you can rule out the youngest shrub...and that leaves?) is banned from all technology. Loads of fun for all who dwell here. Sigh.

The question...who is REALLY grounded when a teenager is grounded?
