Where have my babies gone?

My middle son asked me for some old pictures of him in halloween costumes. So I dug through hundreds of old photos finding what he was looking for. While I was doing this I came across a cute one that I sent to him. Sometimes when the children were young the house would get unusually quiet and we would know that something was going on. In this case he had attacked the toilet paper in the front lavatory. So we got the camera and caught him in the act. Ahhh, it’s those eyes that says “who me” – yeah right. It made me giggle…

Then there some photos of his younger sister only a few weeks old. She was early, lost weight the first few weeks, and she got very scrawny. It worried me greatly.
Then a few months later she had filled out. Look at those eyes. They have that diva look. Again it made me giggle…
Where have my babies gone. They’ve grown up as wonderful people!

Update: My oldest son (see comments below) sent this to me. It seems that unrolling toilet paper is a hereditary trait, and we just had to catch him in the act. Can you again see the surprise “who me” in the look too.

Killing time

Each weekday I look forward to the weekend, but when the weekend gets here I have to work at keeping busy and not getting bored. The big thing this weekend was the 10 mile race and I was happy with the results. Other than grocery shopping, I saw two movies: A History of Violence on Saturday and Dreamer on Sunday. The History movie was fine and had the most graphic gun shot wounds which made the audience gasp (is this a change in violence portrayal?). I saw the Dreamer movie with Kathy and it was quite good – an upbeat tear jerker. Now the weekend is over and I’m sad that it’s over, but then again I’m now looking forward to work tomorrow. And so it begins again…

Busy day

Today was busier that usual. I had the IBM Uptown 10K race today and had to get up at 6AM. Then the race began at 8 AM which took about an hour. Got home, got a shower, and headed out again. This time I went to lunch at Chuys on Barton Springs downtown for a chicken burrito, and then over to Auditorium Shores for the “Lance Thanks Austin” free concert with Sheryl Crow starting at 4 PM.

Finished at about 7 PM. Got home at 7:30 PM and realized I had no food for the week so out again to HEB for groceries. Finally I’m home and vegging-out. Whew! I almost feel like one of my children and all that they are doing these days from the free Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in Golden Gate Park, to New Orleans vs Buffalo NFL game at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
