D.P. has his fingers in his nose!

This picture was taken during our trip to NJ and NYC this past June as we were walking up to the depot for Ellis Island.  This is just one of the many reasons I love him.

So, here I am!

Man, doing without internet is like losing an eye.  Or, something like that.  It really sucks, though, so I’m glad I have access during the week.

I’ve been super-busy lately…

I took care of D.P. after he had hernia surgery on Tuesday, August 19.  I stayed with him Wednesday-Saturday that week.  It was a terrible time for him, as he ended up getting an infection, but it cleared up quickly with antibiotics.  [I can’t say I didn’t enjoy playing ‘house’ with him, because I did.]  He’s feeling much better but becomes tired very easily still… he’s supposed to go to work this week…

E started 2nd grade on Monday, August 18, and both the kids went camping with my parents Thurs-Sat that week.  My parents were in town for a class reunion, and the Monday E started school, we went to dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory.  Our family that night consisted of: my parents, 3 of my 4 brothers, my sister and her boyfriend, and me, D.P. and my kids.

M is with a new babysitter now, and she’s having a blast while E is at school.

As far as my new job goes, I’m in love with it.  There are still some kinks to be worked out, but I can see myself staying here for a long time.  FINALLY!  It ends up… all the hard work and interviews paid off.  It is challenging at times, but completely what I was looking for.  I was able to secure a pay increase of almost $2/hr from what I was making at my last job.  Plus, there is plenty of opportunity for overtime and bonuses.  Sweet!

I’ll write more tomorrow or so.

Desiree, here, reporting from Hell.  Looks like I can’t get into my blog at the new site, so I’ll have to just update here until I can get to it this weekend from D.P.’s house.  Ridiculous!

Speaking of, while I did head over to D.P.’s house last night, I didn’t make it to the lake – there was a tornado warning and flash flooding in our area.  I’m going to try and take some pics tomorrow or Saturday when I’m at the house.

I have some good news!  My friend, Eileen, and her husband, Nick, are celebrating the birth of her first child today!  Baby Owen was born last night at 945 pm.  He weighs 6 pounds, 1 ounce, and is 19 inches long.  Congratulations to Eileen and Nick!

I’m currently uninspired to write anything right now.  I think I’ll head over to the lake by D.P.’s house tonight and take some pictures… maybe that will help my creative juices.

Effective August 31, 2008, Writing to Sanity will be moved to a new location at Desiree Allen dot com.  Until then, I will be cross-posting at both sites.


I don’t know why, but this tickled me! See more cat pictures.
