This and That

Do you ever get so far behind on a project that it becomes a joke? The partially built shed in your backyard that just becomes part of the landscape? Or the boxes in your garage that you fully intend to clean out, but over time you simply add more boxes to the pile?

That's how I feel about this blog. Every time I start to write on it I feel overwhelmed because so much has happened since my last entry. Over time then, I've simply fallen out of the habit of adding to it.

Here are some highlights I've not blogged about that would have made brilliant entries:

1. Emily turned three in January.
2. Stephanie and I had a cold, but fun time at the lake with the Fisher's and the Doggett's.
3. Rainey starred in her class production of the Little Red Hen and sang beautifully in the school talent show -
4. The whole family got sick at the same time and argued about who was well enough to take care of the others. In the process, I missed the Zoe conference in Fresno.
5. Rainey and I boogied down at not one, but two Valentine's dances.
6. Steph's mom came down for a visit while Steph concentrated on interviewing for a full time teaching position at TCU. She was offered the position and starts in the Fall!
7. I'm doing some consulting and contract work for a couple of different companies and I'm the new lead singer for the Back Roads Band.
8. I participated in the Lubbock Zoe conference.
9. My niece Bailey is at Oxford this semester and my sister and her family went to visit and spent time in Ireland and London. I stayed home and pouted and felt jealous.
10. My oldest niece Jordan became engaged to a wonderful young man who also happens to be a very gifted musician. His name is Sam which makes me smile because it is the name of some of my favorite people.

I'm sure I'm leaving out a hundred things, but at least I feel a sense of catching up. I'll try to be a bit more consistent from now on with this blogging thing. However, blog sabbaticals are probably not a bad idea.

Well, it's obvious from watching the link of Rainey singing that she has inherited her daddy's gorgeous voice!! I've never heard one so young with such a pretty vibrato....she's got some God given talent!!

Love to your family,


P.S. I'm glad to see you back at blogging. I always enjoy reading what you have to say!

Okay, I was going to delete this from my list of blogs that I read but I kept holding out hoping that one day I would click and would find something besides facebook and birthdays. I am glad to see you back. I have missed reading on this site. Congratulations to Stephanie. Please pass that along. I know she must be excited about the new job in the fall. I did not know your niece was engaged but my blessings upon them. And all I can say is "WOW!" to Miss Rainey. I am going to send her you tube video to friends. Wow,wow,wow,wow,wow. Did you and Steph just jump up and shout that is my daughter when she was finished or what? She needs to go on America's got talent. I think I need to email people and tell them Stephen finally wrote on his blog! Just in case they deleted it from their list. Love yall and hope to see you at Hutton's graduation. It will be here before you know it. He is one incredible young man.

Thank you for posting Rainey's song...she was wonderful! Sometimes I hate that we live too far apart for me to be the obnoxious aunt at all her events. As her parents you have to have some her aunt I could have freedom to gush and expect it from others too. Love you guys and miss you. Give your little superstar a hug from Aunt Lee Ann and tell her she performed in Oxford as well...Bailey called today just to ask if I had seen it!

Thanks for the updates. The funny thing is, I had been away from blogs so long that I didn't notice your absence. Our timing is impeccable- and by that I mean completely peccable.
