Returns of the Day

Here are the returns for this Saturday at my house:

  • Pure Luck, returned in the wee hours from that state famous for crabs
  • Walking, which I have been avoiding due to the ice; go, slush!
  • Flowers, or a hint of them, little green shoots of hope on the side of the street where the sun shines most
  • Snow, because you really can’t have enough
  • .2 pounds, as I continue to navigate a period that I hope will be a blip on the long term arc of weight loss rather than an actual plateau; not being able to exercise may have a lot to do with it, and I have been forbidden the gym for now (or at least the weight lifting part)
  • Pizza from City By the Sea Pie Company, which has not been ordered here since all the boys were home
  • Painful recognition that pizza, at about 6 points per slice, is not worth it to me
  • Enjoyment of laptop use, because I am typing on my new, pink Dell
  • Our webring administrator, making the previous item possible (yes, that’s Pure Luck; he holds the Key to the Kingdom)
  • Me to the newspaper, but you had a chance to read it here first on Thursday

But mostly I want to mention that this is the fourth anniversary of my blog. I wrote three posts in 2003, but my regular pursuit of blogging began on March 15, 2004, and by the following year it had become a very important part of my life. I’ve said it before: I had no idea blogging would bring face-to-face friends into my life. I’m thankful for them, and for the friends I haven’t yet met but know through their writing or their pictures.

Tomorrow’s returns will include #1 Son to school and Snowman from school, their Spring break plans causing them to miss each other by just a few hours. And so it goes. I’ll keep writing about it, I’m sure, and I hope you’ll be here, too.

  1. Happy Blogiversary! I’m glad you’re here and that I’ve had the opportunity to get to know you this way. And one of these days we’ll make it F2F!

  2. Happy Blogiversary! And oh, I am kind of jealous of the pink Dell. Are pictures forthcoming?
    And I am especially glad for you that Pure Luck is home.
