78/365 Love the view

Late breakfast by the river.

Pretty day on the river

Boys spent most of the afternoon playing across the street with our neighbor's grandsons.

75/365 Shamrock Shake

This picture would have been perfect for tomorrow

but the green is perfect for saying Happy Birthday to Janel, since it's a color she loves. Hope you had a fantastic day!

74/365 Waiting

Warm day, cool breeze, attention divided between a good book and a fat bumblebee who danced around the blooms. I took a couple of bad shots,

and stepped in an ant bed. Luckily I only had one bad bite despite the swarming they did on my feet and legs. As we were driving home Amanda mentioned what a great picture the ants and eggs and chaos would have made. Why couldn't I have thought of it at the time?

70/365 Heading Home

Heading Home

With back and forth to the Pcola hospital where Amanda gets her daily infusions, and occasional runs to Baker for her or her mom's fam doc, we are always on the go these days. Breaks comes when A is her home for a few days, her guy off work so he can take her back and worth, or when her dad drives over to handle all the appointment transporting. I hope it doesn't sound like I'm complaining, I'm definitely not, just documenting what life is like right now. Thankful for these days, the reality of what was and the alternate ending we came very close to still gives me nightmares.

62/365 Books

On top of buying from the monthly flyers each teacher sends, there was also the book fair. Just a small sample of the scholastic in this house.

Also, Mardi Gras parade, but I was stuck home with the boy that couldn't go (don't ask) so no pictures from there.

Feb 14, 2011

Despite being diagnosed with strep today was a fantastic day, Amanda was off the vent!!!

My boys gave me a lot of their candy from school because I felt so bad, and V got me Taco Bell takeout because it was all I could think of I wanted.
