"To better days ..."

Welcome to the monthly edition of "What's New In My World". In other words, I'll be posting a few new Squishy pictures and calling it a blog entry.

For real though, I apologize for the lack of content here. I don't pretend to know what my issues are. I just know I can't think of a damn thing to say anymore.

Here's what's happening anyway:

Looking forward to a good weekend coming up ... Emilie, Jud, and the beast will be coming in on Friday mid-day, and we'll celebrate the 4th with something on the grill, and the fridge in the garage is already full of beer. Yay, America.

I'm already aware that the main reason Emilie is making the 5-hour drive is to do some major baby holdin'. And I can't blame her.

Miss Squishy was as sweet as always when we saw her on Saturday night, but she's not feeling 100%. We're calling it "teething" unless something else shows up with another name. Her bottom two chicklets are already poking through!

On Saturday AM, bright and early, Squishy's Mom and Dad will jet off for almost a week of fun in the sun and relaxation. I can't even tell you how much I'm looking forward to taking care of Miss Squish while they are gone! I hope they enjoy their time away, and won't worry about us.

Then, at some point during the week of July 14th, my sister Kay will actually take some time off work (gasp!) and drive herself up I-85 for some down-time with ME! I'm so happy!

Between now and then, I've got some housecleaning and grocery shopping to do. That's my specialty, right?


Here's what else is new:

I have registered at the local technical college for a class in "Ophthalmic Medical Assisting" ... to begin on August 4th. It'll go through the end of October, when I hope to be hired by an eye doctor who totally overpays his employees, and works 3-day weeks.

Yeah, I know. I don't have a great track record with the whole job thing. But now I really AM bored around the house for the majority of my days, and I'm wanting to feel like I'm a real part of the world. So let's all think positive and maybe I'll be a real, live money earner for my golden years. Heh.


Without further ado, here's the latest of our sweet one. She'll be 8 months old next week!

This was taken last week on "Thursday Afternoon With Nana" 6/24/08:

That same day, she discovered the Yummy that is teething biscuits ... she was intense about it!

Last Saturday, we went to her house, to help her Daddy celebrate his new Pilot's License! As I said earlier, she wasn't herself with the teeth breaking through her gums, but she was still as sweet as she could be:

"Teeth hurt."

(Edited to add: Blogger always screws up my spacing and paragraph breaks when I add pictures. I tried to fix the mess, but was unsuccessful. Sorry about it!)
