Reconnecting part 1

Holy cow.
It's been over 3 months since I last posted!
Do you still remember us?

I'm happy to tell you nothing horrible has happened.  We've been humming along quietly, steadily and without catastrophic incident for the past 3 months.  Phew!  With that said, we have been insanely busy, so this will be a 3 part post:  

Our little online recycled bottle-crafting shop, Conversation Glass, has been growing and we've been working our little fingers to the bone.  My full time job has been understaffed lately and work has continued busy there, although I'm on vacation right now (1 more day left).  Our 14 year old daughter has been sharing her 9th grade growing pains with more fervor than a Tea Party conservative.  While nothing catastrophic has happened, we haven't had many spare seconds.  All except for the dogs, who are constantly snoopervising.

Notice Arwen ignoring the overflowing toy box and trying instead to fit into her brother's tiny bed.

So what have we been up to?

In September, T started at special math/engineering high school that she actually loves.  Yes, folks - our kid loves her school.  If you've been paying attention, this is a first for her.  She's also started JROTC and loves this, too.
**climbs back into chair after passing out**
I can't even type this without being in shock.  We've had some ups and downs, and have learned that 9th grade sucks.  Again.

T actually DOES have a face, but she is under covert assignment at present.
Stay tuned for Part 2

P.S.  Congrats to President Obama - now let's get to work!


  1. Thanks for the pup-date and we are glad to read the little shop of glass is going well. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. I'm glad to hear things are going well. We can't all get what we want although Obama will keep promising. He will eventually run out of Chinese money to spend.

    I am glad to hear you daughter has found a school that fits her needs. It is so much easier to get kids interested in learning when they find a school that fits their learning style. I hope she continues to progress and things get easier.

  3. Thanks Molly and Bailey! We are very thankful you remember us! I like "the little shop of glass" :D

    Please stay tuned for part 2 of this post.

  4. Of course we remember you! So glad you had a minute to let us know what you've been up to!

  5. Welcome back! We know how life gets the way!! :)

  6. Well well well look who it is....BOL glad you were busy with good things and back
    Benny & Lily
