Weekend Update

Good morning friends!
We did get a couple of inches of snow over the weekend, enough for CWGIII to try out his new sled! He got out of school about a half hour early when it began Friday. It snowed Saturday and Sunday, but not enough to keep us from going anywhere or doing anything we wanted. He was sadly disappointed to have to return to school today. I'm sure the dog is glad he had to, because having no brothers and sisters, Maggie took the brunt of his snowballs. She enjoyed romping in the snow as much as he did.

I am recovering nicely from my bronchitis finally. I cleaned house Saturday and almost overdid it on my back. Now that would be bad after being sick three weeks, to get down in your back for three more, wouldn't it? I spent 3 and a half hours in my son's room sorting clothes and toys. It dawned on me how much we had invested between the four walls of that particular room of the house. Yes, we have spoiled him rotten. I laughed and told him that I was watching in the next month to see which of the toys he actually played with. The rest are soon to be history. We'll see how that goes.

I began to wonder if all those toys were somehow a result of my childhood yearnings. I found toys that I remembered seeing or having as a child that he probably could care less about--like Lincoln logs and Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots. Did he really want these toys? Or did I just convince him he wanted them? I don't know, but I told CWG, Jr to focus on the child's stocks from now on--which, by the way, are doing quite well for the time. He has stock in Disney, Marvel comics, and Topps and others. CWGIII informed me he was buying a rifle with his stocks. I informed CWGIII that he going to college on them. The rifle can wait. He's only six. And besides, guns frighten me. I'm sure I will be right there with him when he finally is old enough for the Hunter's Safety course.

Thanks for checking in on me. I may have more interesting posts to come. I love this place because it connects me to people who share my interests--and people who love my God. And it allows me to share my faith with those that just happen by.
Hope you all have a great day. Take time to share a bit about what is going on in your world. I love to hear from you.

Hi. You can't imagine how nice it was for me to find someone on blogspot who speaks English and isn't 20-something. Every day I randomly search a few blogs on this site, and today yours caught my eye. I'll mark your name and visit again. By the way, I also like to write and enjoy what other writers have to say.
