Time Flies....

Sadly, much has been missed during this last one-month blogging hiatus. I'm glad to report that, from a working standpoint, things are very busy. I actually have my first "on newsstand" article out this month - although it's still a local magazine, but you have to PAY for it. If you're interested and in Chicago, pick up the latest issue of West Suburban Living magazine. If you're more interested in the details of us Anderson's, read on...

Here are the October blog posts that will never be....

"Malfunction Junction" - in a matter of two months, everything is breaking around here. My watch, my sunglasses, our coffee maker, our DVD player (thank you Finn), our first batch of paper shades in our bedroom (they are the only ones left in the house, I swear!) Our iPod is even at max capacity. Just in time for Christmas - ugh!!

"Poison Control - Installment 3" - This is the story of Finn climbing up the shelves in our bathroom last week and chewing multiple ibuprofen. Four hours later, I found orange spit all over my bathroom - I had no idea that he had done this and he was fast asleep. After waking him and listening to his crying and doing much research, we finally determined that he had indeed spit all the meds on the bathroom floor. Yes, this is our 3rd call - for Finn.

"The autumn virus of 2009" - Sick kids, one week of fever, sore throats and coughing and no work time for mommy. Glad to announce everyone is almost healthy around here.

"Miley Cyrus" - Mike and I took the girls to see her - yes, Mike and I. It was a trip and they were more in awe than nutso. It was a good time.

Life is busy. Life is full. Life is good. More to come...

Dear daughter, you never started out to write at a "snails pace" - but you sure are running now with well-deserved success. (I will want an autographed copy of West Suburban Living magazine for sure.)

So many high priced items to replace - I agree,UGH... is a word that works here.

Cannot believe I didn't get a call on the poison control installment. Finn - Mr. Inquisitive - 3rd call - last call - I hope.

Fall and the cold and flu season - slows kids down but adds nursing to mom's already busy schedule. Don't know how you do it (don't know how I did it). So glad my grandchildren have such a loving, caring mom...

Miley and the Anderson's (mom, dad, Logan and Riley) - glad you enjoyed the concert and thanks for the one on one time I was able to get with Finn that night - one awesome grandson.

"...Life busy, full and good..." that's great! Love, Mom
