The year began quietly enough. I picked up some groceries in the morning. In the afternoon, we all went to Burlington Coat Factory so MF could get a new purse and wallet. All of us had a good time. Throughout the day, I left yesterday’s sofa fort in place, and RLF played on it a[...]
Rebecca woke me at 6:15 a.m. I don’t know how long she’d been awake. She had a banana and milk and then cried and fussed for an hour. I finally sent her to bed and she slept for another hour or so. When she did get back up, she had a bowl of Cheerios and[...]
It was 72°F from morning till night and rained lightly almost all day. Just before bedtime, the wind picked up and we dropped into the upper 60s.
Being with Rebecca was like a dream. She was in a good mood the entire day, napped late (she wasn’t going to nap, but fell asleep as soon as I rocked her), talked more, played hard, communicated… Watched Super Bowl XLVI.

[image removed] Kodi Morrison, pictured here as a Varnum H.S. sophomore, aims a three-pointer during her final game of 2007, a loss to Eagletown in the Area Tournament. Watching the OU v. Kentucky women’s game tonight was a pleasure. Kentucky burst out to a 8-0 lead and was up 15-2 before the Sooners really got[...]
Since my recent post End of an Era, I’ve actually continued to work (part-time) at my old job. With the new Sports Editor in place, I’m not worrying about sports anymore, except to offer advice or answer her questions (and I can jump in and help fill a page if necessary). But I’ve been instead[...]
