Wierd. It's true that I am good at many things and great at none and always waiting for more and the other shoe to drop. But I don't travel much, and I don't have a lot of fun. I also don't like yellow, and can't imagine why an asterisk would have any particular meaning for me. Still, like most of these things, it's fun. You can try yourself here

Love Thursday, Jan. 18, 2007

I've never particularly liked to play sports. I'm not a very competitive person--I like to play a lot more than I like to win. Ben does not share that quality. And he's found his sport early--the kid loves hockey (that's him shooting the puck in the picture, I know, Hockey players all look alike unless you can see their number!). He played his first "real" game the other day. It was a tiny bit disappointing to him--I asked him why and he said "I thought it would be more exciting". He didn't like the rotation system--there were two lines, and they were on the ice for 2 minutes, off the ice for two minutes. He didn't believe me when I told him that he played 1/2 the time: he was convinced that they sat him on the bench for most of the game. Like all fun things, the time he was playing went much faster than the time waiting to play. When we love what we're doing, the time goes fast. Happy Love Thursday, everyone!

Love Thursday--posting just for you, mom!

Ben was home sick today with another cold. I blame other parents for sending their kids to school sick. Of course, that might be what I do if he keeps bugging me! Sick Ben is not fun Ben. But as he was moaning about something on the floor, little brother Daniel came and gave him a hug and they snuggled in together to watch mindless TV. Love is a brother who doesn't care if you're sick and will still give you a hug if you need it. Clearly I'll be home with him all next week when HE gets this cold. At least they're cute, and my mother can't be mad at me for not posting a picture this week! For more love, visit Love is All Around.
