one of my favorites...

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Today has not been a good day. this illness that has gone through my entire family. But at least my husband and I went to lunch, hit the farmer's market. I picked up some cherry tomatoes and salt potatoes, and Xander got a baby pumpkin. (and a hot dog at the hot dog stand there, lol)

I just feel ick. Im sick of feeling ick. That sounds like a dr seuss book eh? Tired, really tired physically, unable to concentrate. I think the fact that the middle boy is being LOUD at the moment making some animalistic sounds to the littlest. Boys. Love em to death but they aren't the quietest creatures.

My hubby is making dinner but I honestly feel like going to bed and sleeping the ick off. Tomorrow we head to nana's house for xan's birthday. Five flippin' years old. Oh my.

Getting back into the groove of things

It's taken me awhile to update. We arrived back home after an amazing trip and the kids started school 2 days later. It seems like a whirlwind lately, the days running into each other and here we are halfway thru Sept. already. We have Noah's school's open house tomorrow night and so far he's having a great year. *crosses fingers it continues* He once again got elected to the Student Council and loves his teacher.

We had a massive power outage due to Ike. I say massive and I mean for around these parts. There was no school. We went without electricity for almost a day. I had an orthodontist appt that morning so the kids all went and Im going in next time for my finishing archwire, they call it. YES! it's been two years in January so Im ready for them to be off.

I'll finish with some of my favorite photos of the trip.
