One night while tucking Abby into bed she sweetly chimed, "good night! Sleep tight! Don't let the bed bites bug you!" I like her thinking. Sometimes life bites. The trick is to not let it bug you.

Pass the Hankies, Please

The sun has been out today and it is finally feeling like spring around here! I even have a couple of daffodils about to pop. I'd love to be outside running around in it, but what I had hoped would just be the onset of hay fever seems to be developing into a full-fledged cold. The one great thing about being sick is having an excuse to sit in bed with the laptop, blogging!

Good news of the day: Abby and her partner won the school debate tournament! They will be going on to district next month. Maybe sharing DNA with a big-mouthed-mama hasn't been a complete disaster for her, after all!

Other news lifting my sickly spirits: my cool friends Lori and Karen have kindly featured me in recent blogs! Like I actually have a life, or something! The irony here is, they are both far more experienced bloggers than I, and you're in for a treat if you check them out.

In Hey... Things Change! Lori has done a very kind spotlight on me which includes my post about Annie's 5th birthday. This is a great honor for me, because Lori does a very professional, high-quality blog, covering diverse and interesting topics. Lori has great style, and anyone interested in what's hot from home decor and family entertaining to thrift store shopping and photography will find something fun in her pages. Lori strives to make the most of time and life, and that's what I love about her.

Karen's blog, Popcorn and Apples, is a decadent feast for foodies, world travelers and literature buffs. In a fun questionnaire Karen recently administered to blogospheric friends (I love taking verbiagic license), probing questions were asked which I answered pathetically. You can read my responses in which I am referred to as KTG, the nickname Karen and I modestly gave ourselves during our childhoods (Karen The Great). You can also read about one of our more embarrassing escapades in an old post of mine.

Love to my blogging friends! Love to my reading friends! Let's hope the next time we meet I'm not sneezing on you. I hope you read this post from a safe distance. Be well.

I love your blog. You have such a talent for writing! Abby looks so cute and grown up. It is funny that we live so close, yet we hardly ever see each other. Life just keeps getting busier...Get feeling better.

Karen said...

Thanks, Katie! I'm sure now that the seasons are changing we'll all get out and see each other a bit more. I can't see your blog anymore because my invitation expired... if you are still blogging, please invite me again! :)
