We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

The other day....

While I got lunch ready, Marley says in a high-scratchy voice:  "Where's my brother?"

Me (laugh):  I don't know?  Where is your brother?

Marley same voice: I don't know?

Me:  WHO is your brother?

Marley thinks for a few seconds, sees Daddy and says in the same voice:  My brother is Daddylayna!

We all laughed.

Later that day he became Dadlayna.  We haven't heard of him since.  Yet a few days later we heard about Momlayna but not sure if that is Mom or a sister? 

Last night Marley was distributing Rumicub pieces to each of us as we all watched a TV show. She likes to play with those tiles, a lot.  During one of the rounds of distribution she put a stack on my leg and said quietly, "This is for sister."  I said, "Sister? Who is sister?" And she quickly and quietly corrected, "This is for mommy."

Marlayna is giving us small hints.  Don't you think?

I have to say....today was a good day.

Marley was sick (puking) most of last week.  She is feeling much much better!

I worked out this morning.  Yes, exercise.  I found a nice 30 minute workout in a magazine at the laundromat.  Yes, I ripped it out of the magazine and took it home (so naughty, I know).  Yes, I was there because Marley had thrown up on my beautiful comforter that makes me feel like a queen...but, not when it has puke on it.  (the huge washer was $5.00!!!!! the huge dryer was $.25 for every 4 minutes!!! Crazy huh? That was not such a good day.)

Back to the exercise thing....if you didn't know but are interested, I have a weight loss blog with my cousin. You can go check out our progress

The weather is BEAUTIFUL today.  Marley and I went for a two mile walk/stroller with blue skies and lots of sunshine and big white fluffy clouds.

Nathan had a job interview over the phone.  Any day he has a job interview is a GOOD day!  The day he is offered a position will be THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR!  =) 

Nathan will start working for his dad in about a week.  It's just a part time merchandiser job (for Pepsi) but, it will be nice to have a little bit more income while he continues the search.

My sista Julie, is going to have a baby girl this week! She has been pregnant 8 times and this is only the second time she has been able to carry the baby full term.  So, this is a BIG DEAL. The other success....Sam will be 10 in May and he is so excited to finally have a sibling...a sister.....Lola Joy!  I can't wait to see her and hold her!  But, I'm probably not more excited than Julie, Matt and Sam. =)

********

Not such a good day....Nathan isn't feeling well.  He hasn't puked and Aunt Didi (diarrhea) hasn't come....yet.  But, his tum tum hurts. 

That's all.
