so the 'baby' (my youngest sister) is home. i'm fighting the urge to wake her up. i'd like to go eat breakfast before i have to go to work.

i looked back on my older posts and wondered what happened to that girl. i'll be married two years in june and marriage has changed me. quite. i like most of the changes. i compromise more. i'm calmer. whatever. sometimes i just want to be one of my parents children again. live at home with my sisters. few complex things happening at all. but i'm with my love in our place and my sisters are spreading their wings as well and it will never be the three of us again. that's sad. i wish we could visit times gone for a few hours every once in a while. i think this is all coming out right now because this is the first time we haven't all been together all summer. it's weird. and as time goes on it will get weirder. they might not come home at all.

and new life distracts me from lamenting the old. jane (our expected) is rolling around quite vigorously in there right now. how can i look back when i have so much to look forward to?

a man and a woman had a little baby. there were three in the family- that's a magic number

i finally got my first tattoo yesterday.

also, how do you question a guy who wears the detatchable hood to a winter coat and a short sleave shirt and slacks? what was that? people are freaks...

can't believe it's october already. i felt like i was running away from winter when i got home today. it's blustery and all the leaves are changing. i hate the gray sky that settles until march. i guess it's not all bad. this is birthday season in my family. my sister's is the 14th, my husband's is the 28th then corban and i have our birthdays in december as well as a grandpa, two cousins and an uncle.

i can actually say we've found our groove and my work shcedule has calmed down (although i did work 13 hours yesterday) so i should be able to post and read a lot more regularly. that makes me so happy.

that's it i guess,
fred

oh yeah, i had loaded potato soup today and it almost made winter coming worth it.

i guess i post just once a month now. it works. nothing much new. i work all the time, when i'm not working i'm still really busy. i love it.

i start a new job in about a month. it should have me working only 5 days a week. that's really happy for me. i'll like free time. people are coming out of the woodwork like crazy. and i've begun frequenting a tatoo parlor.

well, i'm off. i still have grocery shopping to do. blech.
miss you all,
fred

hello

i miss this place.

when i'm not working seven days a week, i'm running around doing the i just moved/got married thing. it leaves no freaking time. well, there was that one day where i stopped long enough to watch the new pirates movie. but yeah, just plugging along and loving it.

well, i just got back from a job interview. i applied there months ago and had completely forgotten about it. they called monday or tuesday or i don't know and asked me to come in today. i have a second interview monday. so it's looking good. it would be a pay increase and free health care for me and pretty affordable rates for the rest of the fam. and two days off eache week. what will i do? the idea of free time has become so foreign.

so that's all really. we're working and sleeping and running with the kids. it's great

today's my youngest sister's eighteenth birthday. we're all old now.

as far as i go: work is work. married life is great. i love my house. we just got bunk beds for the kids and a sleigh bed for ourselves. i love, love, love my patio set up. and sue is coming over saturday with someone (i can't remember) and jamie. she's actually our first offical guest- not family. i had other plans on the first guests but this is just as well.

we need to finish moving our stuff in. the day bed, coffee table and countless other boxes are still waiting around. we'll get there.

fred
