1980- What a Year!

Some really great things happened this year. Here are just a few of those events:

AC/DC releases "Back in Black"
"Empire Strikes Back" is released in theaters
the video game "Pac Man" is released in arcades across the lower 48
Pittsburgh Steelers become 1st NFL franchise to win 4 Super Bowls
people are obsessed with "who shot JR?"
Nigel Short,14, becomes youngest chess player to awarded degree of International Master
Ronald Regan accepts bid for Republican candidate for Presidency in Detroit, MI
Ronald Regan defeats Jimmy Carter
and on May 8, my sister is born into this world and my life hasn't been the same since!

My sister is now 30. HOW did that happen?? Sometimes I forget she is no longer a kid, sometimes I get really confused and I'm the one acting like the kid. But she is a adult. My sister whom graduated Magna Cum Laude, a teacher, a wife & a fantastic Mother to two sweet little boys. She has incredible will power, a great dancer & a great cook. I've had the honor to be a part of her first thirty years & I hope to be a part of the next thirty.

Happy 6th Birthday to my nephew & godson Aidan. It really seems like yesterday going up to MI for his baptism. We only get to see Aidan a couple of times a year at best, but I feel I know him so well & he seems the same with all of us.

Aidan has a heart of gold & I love that he loves wet wipes! Every day his younger cousin Jack looks more & more like him. It is so sweet. Jack finally broke out of his shell & played wonderfully with him on their last visit here.
Aidan may only be 6 but he is already married and he is an accomplished jetpack fighter.

We can't wait to see you!! Have the best day & I hope your 6th year is the best one yet!!!

WE LOVE YOU!!!!!! xoxoxoxoxo

So Thankful

My Mom came out of her surgery with flying colors. She answered the phone today (with 2 IV's still in) cheerful despite her pain. She was already asking me to do stuff around her house before she returns-that's the Mom we know & love!
She was terrified about this surgery. She even wrote letters to all the kids in case she didn't make it through. Her recovery will be long and painful but I don't now anyone with her endurance.

So thank you to all for your prayers & thoughts. Mostly thank you God for being there with that doctor and my Mom.

Common Decency Tip #1

Since when did it become ok for kids to jump on other peoples furniture? Or how about furniture at all?? This past week, Jack had two friends over in different days. I was thrilled. He isn't in school right now & he can get lonely.

Both kids freely jumped on my couch & sat on the arm-parents right there in the same room.

HELL NO!!!!!!!

Because I love my little man & want him to keep his friends, I first said nothing but then when it continued, I politely said: "please don't jump on our furniture, I really need it to last".

I shouldn't have had to say anything!!!!!!

Haleigh & Jack would NEVER do that & if they did: trouble.

It's sadly happened with Haleigh's friends as well & then I'm not as nice.

But I really want to take it out on the parents. Do they not teach their kids any manners??? Wow. Unless I have furniture in a garage keep your feet off!!

I don't care the condition of mine or someone else's couch or chair, whatever. It's called respecting someone else's property.

Try & remember that parents next time your purchasing your $2000 sofa.
