Making memories one day at a time.......and then I write about it.

Bequeathing love and laughter.

Last night my MM kidnapped me and got me out of the house. The youngest babies were in bed so we left our oldest baby/teenager in charge and went for a drive. The first thing that hit me as I walked out the front door was the smell. I sat there for a few seconds breathing deeply taking it all in. To be outside again. The smell of fall so rich in the air.

We drove. No where in particular. We just drove and talked. It was wonderful. It felt so good to get out of bed and the house. I miss being outside.

My older sister right above me (I have to say it that way because there are so many of us) also has a blog. I talked to her on the phone last night and she told me of a post she'd just written in honor of me. I read it out loud over the phone and I thought the two of us were going to need oxygen we were laughing so hard.

Read it here: This is what it is all about folks. Family and laughter. Being with your sisters and laughing through the good and the hard times.

Oh and P.S. Before you get to feeling all sappy and sorry for her....just know there are two sides to every story.......she forgot to mention that I DID bequeath my portable bathroom facilities to her! She kind of forgot to mention that part.......a small over look on her part I'm sure. Sniff!


  1. Family, that's what it is all about!

  2. How fun! It's nice to hear that you were able to get out for a while. I got a good laugh at your sister's post.

  3. Hey, and I'm not sharing it either. I'm just feeling slighted that she didn't decorate mine!!!

    And, carousing again are we??? The spider hath spoke!!!

  4. I could just see you poised there on the step - eyes closed, scenting the air. It'll wait for you, dear girl. It'll still be there.

  5. Now I can see that the humor runs in the family! Sisters are the best!
