Me, Bare

| 33 Comments | No TrackBacks

Liam is exploding a mile a minute these days. His vocabulary is beyond counting anymore. If I ask him to say, "geek", he does, and then if I ask him, "who is a geek?" He replies, "Daddy." Hahahaha! Oh, and he counts and sings the alphabet - at least parts - he gets partial credit. He likes to play with cars and trains, and he likes to clean up (yahoo!) and wear socks on his hands. He likes to give us kisses when he first wakes up in the morning (often waking us up this way).

And then, there's me. I don't even know where I am. Tomorrow marks one year since my mother died. I'm downing a tub of ice cream as I write this (some of you are aware that is not typical Mara behavior). My sister's calendar of Maman remembrances helps. Each day, I do something on the calendar, even if it's not the one for that specific day. I have no plans to take it down once January is over, either.

We're planning a bonfire here in town (you are all welcome, if you are able) on Friday to commemorate her ascension. I haven't exactly decided the layout - shall we roast marshmallows, as she would've enjoyed, or is the fire somehow sacred? I've asked my sister to read her eulogy - because it's awesome. I'm considering writing something to read - and perhaps something to write, seal and simply burn. We'll see.

I've begun to be diagnosed with a seemingly endless litany of stuff I need to deal with. An on-line thing I had to fill out for Mark's employer informed me I was struggling with depression. Thank you, computer/big brother, for your infinite astuteness.

I have several different options beginning to open up for me professionally - I feel almost overwhelmed with several truly interesting choices, and disappointed that I simply can't do it all, especially because I cannot bear to part with my son and put him in some sort of child care. Please don't read that as a judgment on child care. I just know I'm not up to it, personally.

Hmmm...end on happy note...we got plants for the third floor - it really makes it feel more cozy (and helps absorb stinky new paint chemicals). We also went out and bought the 'leftovers' of Christmas lights for 60 cents a box. We're going to put them up in the basement and convert part of it to a 'formal dining area' for use when we have guests over for meals. Fun!

There, see? I have happiness in my life.

Father and son, having fun:

Today, Liam started sighing when he had to wait for something.

Not to totally diminish or ignore everything important and reflective before it, but I WANT TO GOBBLE UP LIAM IN THOSE SUNGLASSES.

I'm really glad that you are having a memorial bonfire for Maman. I wish I could be there. I also hope that you roast marshmallows, because she would have liked it.

Marshmellows it is then.

thanks for the update. i can't believe its already a year since your mother passed away. and that liam is growing up so quickly. still am grateful for the posts and knowing you are happy.
love to you all.

This is why I keep returning to this place. I can't believe I missed so many posts since my last visit!

There is noticeably a bundle to know about this. I assume you made certain nice points in features also.

I have been to your site a fair few times now and I really enjoy reading your posts thanks again for making my day a whole lot better. :-)

I found your weblog website on google and test just a few of your early posts. Proceed to keep up the very good operate. I just additional up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader. Seeking forward to studying extra from you afterward!…

good choice of colors on your blog. I enjoyed reading it! kudos 2 you

It took me time to read all the comments, but I clearly loved the page. It proved to be very advantageous to me and I'm confident to all of the readers here!

I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting web page like this one. It's pretty worth much for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good information as you did, the net will be much more worthy than ever before.

Thanks to you, I found the solution I required to solve my problem. I will keep you posted of my results. Beautiful website by the way.

I like keeping up to date on everything new so i??? ll unquestionably be bookmarking th is internet site.

Good point. I agree with you.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass' favor.

Hey, I think your really on track with this, I cant say I am completely on the same page, but its not really that big of a issue.

Very intriguing information!Perfect just what I was looking for!. "Boys will be boys... and so will most men." by Jean R. Langley..

I was just looking for this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative websites in top of the list. Usually the top web sites are full of garbage.

I disagree with the feedback above, but the post does contact on some of this.

Great write-up, Iˇ¦m regular visitor of oneˇ¦s web site, maintain up the nice operate, and It's going to be a regular visitor for a long time.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

Found your website by accident for that 2nd time today so I considered I would consider a closer appear. I have just began producing my own blog site and modeling it right after what you might have carried out. I hope mine will likely be as productive as yours.

A beam of light on the field at night the moon tries to outdo the sun but no one can catch the special bugs pillowing the glistening fields inside our eyes and so we clutch the special thing and hold the special thing and tell the world our special thing is bigger than South Africa, bigger than America, bigger than the distance between my secret location and your secret location and between us we shelter the magnitude of weather we cannot share with others.

We are a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our community. Your site offered us with useful information to paintings on. You have performed an impressive process and our whole neighborhood will be thankful to you.

An impressive share, I simply given this onto a colleague who was doing a bit of analysis on this. And he the truth is purchased me breakfast as a result of I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the deal with! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love studying extra on this topic. If doable, as you become expertise, would you mind updating your weblog with more details? It's highly helpful for me. Huge thumb up for this blog publish!

Sorry for the huge review, but I'm really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it's the right choice for you.

This site seems to get a large ammount of visitors. How do you get traffic to it? It gives a nice individual twist on things. I guess having something real or substantial to talk about is the most important factor.

Hope doesnt come from calculating whether the good news is winning out over the bad. Its simply a choice to take action.xxwoddqvd pera salfate xxwoddqvdVery nice blog eh

Terrific work! This is the kind of information that are supposed to be shared around the internet. Disgrace on Google for now not positioning this put up higher! Come on over and seek advice from my website . Thanks =)

Great write-up, Iˇ¦m normal visitor of oneˇ¦s site, maintain up the excellent operate, and It is going to be a regular visitor for a long time.

As I site possessor I believe the content matter here is rattling fantastic , appreciate it for your efforts. You should keep it up forever! Good Luck.
