266/365+1: My Fair Ladies

266/365+1: My Fair Ladies, originally uploaded by Yankee T.

I realize now I may never catch up. We have been so busy-my work days are wild, our evenings are packed, and our weekends are spent shuffling both Gigi and Younger Daughter back and forth to their respective domiciles. I can say that life with Younger Daughter is new and fresh and whole, thanks to the world's most incredible therapist who has helped us all. She will be living back at home before we know it.
Older Daughter is loving life in Paris. The Attorney and I are loving life in the empty nest, such as it is. All is well, and I feel certain that one of these days my camera will be back in use daily. Until then, here are my meager offerings. We took YD, Flower Girl, and Gigi to the Mid-South Fair the other night. These are all from then. When Older Daughter was a little girl, she called the Merry-Go-Round the "Mary Ground."

To anyone who still comes by, thank you.

I worry that Progress: Dead End is where we're headed politically.

We drove for hours today to a softball tournament. No hats, no sunscreen. We picked up Younger Daughter and took her with us. Gigi played well, and we are sunburned. Because we never heard about staying out of the sun. (Ahem)

The Attorney and I are ALONE. It's true. It took a minute, but we are alone, and as much as we adore and enjoy all the young people in our life, there's something to be said for it being just the two of us.
Let's see how long it lasts.

There is not much I can say about this. Anything I might say could be considered inflammatory. I will tell you it's made of FOAM. And it's within the city limits of Memphis. That is all.

I'll Be Back! I Swear It!

I have had so much to do-at home, at work, in between. My poor old camera has been ignored and I'm running like a nut. My plan is to pick the camera up again this weekend and get a ton of shots-I hope I can catch up, but this may turn out to be "Project As Many As I Can Manage" rather than 365+1.

Things are really, really good in my world, and I'd love to start sharing the smiles again.

241/365+1:You Never Know

241/365+1:You Never Know, originally uploaded by Yankee T.

It would seem that we're really on the mend. We've been having wonderful phone calls and visits as the direct result of a sister meeting of the minds among Older Daughter, Gigi, and Younger Daughter. While we're far from perfect, we have been able to meet Younger Daughter's boyfriend, have him at the house with her, and have a really terrific time.

When I say that I am constantly amazed at the resilience of the human spirit, I speak not only of my daughter. Wish me luck.

Nice evening.
