I don't think I enjoy this Blogger site much. It doesn't really make much sense - at least for now, it doesn't. No one ever comments, and I can't understand my site meter, so I don't even know if anyone reads it. I guess not that it matters much....
Here in a couple of hours, I have to be at Buddy's school for the Valentine's Party. This morning was, indeed, a 2 hour delay as I suspected it would be. It's still only 19 degrees right now. I'll get Sissy bundled up and we'll go have fun with the big kids.
I don't know what it is lately, but I have really been missing my mom for the last week or so. It's like it's just NOW sunk in that I can't call her anytime I'd like. And trust me, I called her all the time. Even before Dad died, I think we chatted at least once a day. After dad died, I called her at least twice a day - usually more. And, I spent an awful lot of time with her as well. I took her grocery shopping every week and basically just hung out with her. My parents only lived 10 minutes away from us, so it was easy to just hop in the van and go visit.
I think part of it is now that Sissy is a year old and she's doing all these great new, fun things - I want to tell my mom about it all. I want her and dad to know this grandchild the same way they knew Buddy. Sadly, she will not know my parents. They were such great parents and even better grandparents. They loved Buddy to distraction. He was born 3 months premature (another blog for another day) and my dad was at his side in the NICU every day for the 48 days that Buddy was in. Those two had a special bond.
Well, at least I have this stupid Blogger thing to keep me occupied and maybe I'll actually figure it all out one of these days. Or maybe I'll just call my ex-Geeksquad guy (he's not at Best Buy anymore, but he'll still work on my computers) and make him come by and show me the ropes. He's techy like that.
