One thing (that I'm willing to share) is that change rattles me to a certain degree. It's more like the quest for something else. At times I've felt I need or want more, and at other times I've felt that need has been imposed onto me. At those time's I question why isn't enough, enough. Why must we always want more.
After my morning of coffee and reflection, this was my weekly quote from my calendar. It answers my questions and yet deepend my question. It answered it without explaining it.
Only the fairy tale equates changlessness with happiness...
Permanence means paralysis and death.
Only in movement with all its pain, is life
- Jacob Burckhardt
On a brighter note, he's a pic of the cup of coffee (and scone) I drank while conjuring up all these deep thoughts. Did you know the can make a mocha with dark chocolate? Um Um Good~!
But that's the last of it. After a few warm days, it's time from Spring (at last, we are so ready) Now we can pack away the snow pants and deal with wet shoes and muddy clothes.

Vince follows his brothers lead and places 4th in State his first year attending.
Being at a wrestling tournament isn't like a basketball game. You go in early and wait and wait and wait until your wrestler(s) are up. Thankfully the bank let us use their suite and we could all hang out in the down time.The kids especially love it. Go Purple!!!

snuck (is this the past tense of sneak?) in a tug to his arm which made the tooth pop right out! We were both so excited, then I asked him if he minded I did that, and he said "No, I'm excited you did. Do you know what Jack's going to say?"

Not too much blog worthy news lately, just getting back into the daily grind. Does anyone have big Valentines day plans? I am making heart shaped cookies for both boys classes, so the kids can decorate them during the Valentines Day Party.
I know, it sounds like fun.
Well I found a new Keith Urban video. I'm happy that he is battling his demons and not letting them take over his life. He needs to get on with his life now he's married and all. Sorry this song isn't very valentines day it....Stupid Boy. Maybe he was secretly serenading himself before rehab.
Peace be with you.

While we were away, Ryan was busy at work. He finished painting, did the floors, put in soon to be working doors and fixed up the art station. ( I don't know why a tiger is under the sea? He must be a friend of Sandy's. )
It's coming along! It would be typically that now this is done, it will sit for 6 months, but we still have a long list of things to complete it. A shelving unit and bench need to be built, the art station stocked, basketball hoop for the far side, and we can't forget Spongebob's Pineapple (that is where he lives) as well as the Krusty Krab (where he is a fry cook) and any other landmarks we think we can tackle.
Right now it looks to sterile and bright, I almost didn't share them, but I also want to keep you up to date with the progress.

This morning when I woke up, I noticed they have a release date on the 7th and final book. It comes out July 21st, just a week after movie 5. When book 5 came out, we picked up the book in the morning and camped that weekend. I spent the entire time in the tent and read the book from cover to cover, while Ryan and the boys did the camping stuff. It looks like we'll do that again this year=:)
Well looking at the one of the Harry Potter news sites, I found a recent article about his appearance on "Extras". When I first saw the article last week, I didn't make the connection, but now it comes full circle. The actor who plays Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe, played the spotlighted actor for this week's show.
If you'd like to see the bad humor and a bit of Daniel's performance as a boy scout who wants to be gronw up, here is a link I found.
