I’ve been kind of neglecting the blog lately.

Something about midterms. And papers. And more midterms. And more papers.

And a sick baby.

Sick babies are so sad. And I see lots at the clinic. But my own sick baby is particularly sad. Baby colds are worse than man-colds. And Viddy will be the first to admit that man-colds are REALLY bad. (What is it about a man-cold that makes it seem, to the man, that the entire world is collapsing into a pit of darkness, dispair, and awfulness?)


Life here in the R household has been full of colds and schoolwork.

And my bloggy motivation has been lacking.

I will get a halloween post up. Lulu was adorable in her dinosaur costume. And I *may* just have to put her back into her costume to get a good picture showcasing the amazing costume. Oh well 🙂

We are doing our first official family pictures this weekend – so there will be even more pictures soon.

In the spirit of the up-coming holiday, I’d like to do a quick Thankfulness bit.

I am thankful, first and foremost for my Heavenly Father and all the blessings He has given me. I’m thankful for my family. Especially my sweet daughter. She has brought me so much happiness. I’m grateful for Viddy. He makes me laugh. Keeps me grounded. Helps so much around the house. Is an excellent sous chef. And puts up with my crazy 🙂

I’m grateful for happiness. I know that sounds kind of general, but it’s true. I’m grateful for happy things and for feeling happy. My class today was about child abuse and it got me thinking about how grateful I am for happy things. I’m very blessed to have great friends, people who love me and care for me, good food, and a beautiful home to live in.

My life is good.

    I’m glad to see my husband is not the only man who thinks he’s dying when he has a little sniffle.
