February 03, 2010 9:18 AM- see you on the other side

Probably no surprise that this week has me buried.

It seems no matter how much you plan ahead, how many processes you have laid out, how much you think your little ducklings are all going to march around the carpet in a perfect circle before going to their appropriate nests--- unexpected twists will find you.

This morning? Peg's computer died.

But hey, at least I have pillows with which to suffocate myself.

(Peg made the two pillows pictured above from the tote bags we gave out at Squam in 2008 and 2009).

However, the good news about life is that just when you need to remember the important stuff-- you get an email from your mom sharing the note she got from your 8-year old niece (who lives next door to her grandparents and goes there after school each day).

Dear, Gram and Pere,
I might bring a surprise to your house tomorrow or today or another day. I know today is going to be a good day.
Well to start out with a good day is to do something.
So what do you want to do today?
(Pick something fun) that we all can do.
Pick anything. Anything is fine with me.


DAISY: *sigh* Wish I had a little girl to play with me.

Bisous, E

got 2 cents?

Good luck with everything, amazing E. I hope that at least some of the ducklings are toeing the line by now. This picture of Daisy has to be the best ever ever ever. xxx

Oh, that face, THAT FACE! How can anyone resist her? I know I couldn't. And your niece? I couldn't resist her either. Hope the computer crisis has been solved. The pillows, wow. I want a bag! I want to go! NO FAIR! (ach-um. sorry.)

Got a girl for Daisy! And I'm sending you so much juju for those ducklings to straighten the eff up and march, soldiers! Please have a good week. And if that doesn't happen, please eat copious amounts of chocolate and think of your friends who adore you.

I haven't a doubt that you'll beat the ducks into submission.

I think I might print out that note and stick it on my bulletin board for when I need a pick-me-upper or a healthy dose of perspective. Of course I can't print out that gorgeous picture of Daisy because Cassie (my Golden Retriever) will be jealous. But I can admire it here on your blog without her ever know about it! Here's hoping ducks will line up soon. xo

gracia-- I've missed you TOO--- but I admit, you haven't missed much as my posts are pretty lame-o at present-- I have so much to share but not the time i need to get in here-- but soon soon, the biggest hit of registrations are likely behind me and things should be getting balanced this week. bisous!!
