Welcome to my blog!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit! We hope to share with you our journey of raising a child with Achondroplasia, the most common type of dwarfism. If this is your first time here, please start by reading Caitlyn's Story. It will share the beginning of her life with you. Enjoy!

Simple Woman’s Daybook – February 27th 2012

For today – February 27th 2012

Outside my window… The sun is shining and it’s finally warming up.  It’s now 45* – when I dropped Caty off this morning it was 36*.

I am thankful for… my family and friends!!

In the kitchen…  The dishwasher is finishing and the coffee pot is beeping letting me know that it’s done for the day.

I am wearing… sweats and a sweatshirt – keeping warm!

I am creating… BLOGS, BLOGS and more BLOGS!!!  I have slacked lately and it’s time to get back into the swing of things. 

I am going to… be watching a new baby starting in April.  She was born in December and her mom will be going back to work in April.  Love the family and really looking forward to the extra money that it will bring in. 

I am reading… the Twilight series again – halfway through New Moon.

I am hoping… to win at Bunco tonight!

I am hearing…  KNCI (one of our local country radio stations) playing through the computer and Dora the Explorer on the TV. 

Around the house… There’s laundry to do (isn’t there always?) and dishes to put away as soon as there are done.

A few plans for the rest of the week…  Playing Bunco tonight (but you already knew that), not much else going on though. 

A picture that I’m sharing… umm…someone had fun at the park yesterday!
