I cannot believe it’s been a month since I posted an entry in this blog. This past month has certainly been a busy one, during which the world has witnessed a natural tragedy occur in Japan, changing the lives of millions. We’ve come to see a new war occur in the middle east. Now there’s another threat toward our environment and the wildlife that is attempting to survive in the Gulf (darn off-shore oil drilling)… There hasn’t been much good to talk about in the world, but plenty of good is occuring in this house.
This week, I have been happy to invite my own family (my sister) into our house for the first time in over 3 years. This has been good – very, very good. In addition, I have a newly potty trained 3 year old kidlet. I am enjoying this achievement even more than I could ever have imagined. And finally, I have a new obsession: A Canon Rebel 2Ti 18.0 megapixel D-SLR Camera with super awesome lens attachments. Seriously. Take a look at these photos!
I am now Mommy Paparazzi. So sue me. You will likely see many, many more photos on this page in the future.
In other news, I am just over a month into fundraising for the SUsan G. Koment 3-Day for the Cure. I have raised over $1,300. Less than $1,000 to go until I can officially walk! I aim for much more than that, but I feel good about what has been accomplished so far. I look forward to seeing what can be achieved in the 7 months left until the Walk.
Current status: Going strong. And going… and going… and going!
