Monday Musings

Well hello there.  This feels like me.

An empty mind.  My older brother would say that's how I am most the time - with my mouth running.  But I won't give him the satisfaction that his comments bother me.  

It was sibling day yesterday.  Or so Facebook said.  Many posted pictures including me.  Here is what I posted.  I am the 'baby'.  And I do think that so much of who I am can be attributed to my siblings, not just my parents (who worked with challenging material).  Siblings hold you accountable.  They help you laugh at your mistakes.  They give you courage to take the next step whatever that may be.  They are your friends when you feel alone.  They challenge you to do more.  To be more.  And I'm not just talking about when we were kids all living under the same roof.
We've had winter and then spring and then winter and then spring and then winter and then... I think you get the point.  Countless times since I've last blogged we've had significant snowfall that has dissipated into the ground.  I liked this:
The Chairman completed our taxes with days to spare!  I have to admit I might kinda miss the adrenaline rush there is when he's feverishly working on April 15. 

Daughter #2 got to babysit her little cousin last week.  I'm not sure who had more fun, him or her!
I offered once again to contribute a bunch of cinnamon rolls for a school fundraiser.  I think they make money on them.  The making them was actually fairly easy.  The packaging them - not so much.  And yes, I rewarded myself a warm one with coffee for my efforts.  
Yesterday we had some more MYP come over to join our MYP.  They played games and talked and ate a whole batch of fresh chocolate chip cookies and talked and ate ginormous amounts of food I pulled out of the fridge.

Now one of them has promised to come back to day and he's making supper for our family!  This could be interesting...!

Happy week ahead to you!  Sorry this isn't very introspective, interesting, or informative.  Maybe next week inspiration will hit!  Pretty clever with all those 'in' words, eh?  Maybe I still have it.  Or not.

  1. Some weeks are inspiring, some are normal. The normal ones are the best.
