I'm still alive.

I'm buried in work right now and keep trying to find time to catch up on everyone's blogs.

Read two great books by Janisse Ray. Ecology of a Cracker Childhood and Wild Card Quilt. She grew up on a rural southern Georgia junkyard and writes about community and place. Definitely recommend!

Beast walked in his graduation ceremony this month, although he has a few summer classes before he's really finished. Bean is almost walking. As for myself? I'm crawling through piles of work and housework and it would be really nice if I could find my way out sometime soon.

I read and enjoyed Ecology of a Cracker Childhood years ago but none of the author's other works.

Bean is almost walking? Already? Wow!

Congrats to Beast on the graduation- even if he isn't quite done. Good luck with the walking one- they can get into SO much more....

OY! Wondered what happened to you. Been trying to call lately. Yeah Beast, and yeah Bean and most importantly yeah YOU!!! Keep up the GREAT work. You are doing a great job! As crazy as these days are, one day you will ache for them again :) Like if you have to work somewhere else and cannot be home OR when you have another child and cannot think straight.

Sometimes life just over-takes you and you have to prioritize. That's okay. Congrats to Beast on the graduation.
