Today was a little hard, but not too bad.

I woke up today at 6:30am, but wasn't ready to get up. So I lazed around listened to my boys sleep. It's funny how noisy boys are even in there sleep. I knew when I did get up I was gonna be paying for my night of fun at the shell. I suppose I'm gonna really have to evaulate my choices a bit better and definitely not overdo it. I have always been the type that will go, go, go, until the very last minute and then fall out in the bed, sleep like a baby, and get up raring to go again the next am. I remember doing that with Gus in NYC. We'd get up and be out the door of the hotel by 9am, and not get back to the room until 10 or 11 at night. We just didn't want to miss a thing! He's always been a pretty good trooper like that, although lately I'm sensing some of his preteen self-preservation mode kicking in. But given the right opportunity, like another big city adventure, I'm sure he'd rally, after all he is my boy!

Today, Gus and I did go get a coffee drink at Books-a-million, I bought him a crazy clear glass green apple 3D puzzle. I remembered doing those when I was probably 13 or 14. He's busy working it right now. Hopper has already decided that it must also be his, Bubba, will have to realize that high tables are great things if he hopes to keep all the pieces.

Butch made some really great burgers and there's cheescake awaiting when I want it.

Got to speak with my sister-in-law Casey, about what to bring when traveling with a bitty baby. Grady is only 5 and a half months old, but if he's anything like my Harmon babies, he'll be a fine little traveler. Traveling is something the Harmon's do well! I am really looking forward to seeing them all. They arrive Tuesday evening.

My frien Paula is stopping through on her way out West tomorrow. I'm very happy I convinced her to stay at the house with us. It will be good to hear her stories for her family reunion, Jamie and I have decided that Paula is one of the best storytellers we know, both visually through her pictures, but also thru her tales, she's got perfect timing when it comes to stories. Maybe it's ust us, but sometimes she say something, and all we have to do is just look at her face, and we get the "entire" story without one more word! Love that.

Gonna rest for a while.


  1. Hay honey, you do need to pace your self on your outings that way you wan't wear your self every day. Hope you didn't tell Shane and Casey to bring all the things you and Jamie take with you when you travelif so they will have to charter a 747.LOL Remember me traveling with Bo a diper bag water and powdered milk. that got us all over the country. Baby in one arm the rest on the other shoulder. Tell paula hello and to email me on her trip neverdid hear from her. We had a good day went to see Donald and Midge. Love you.

  2. I am so happy you all went out and left all the all the doctory stuff behind. This heat and humidity has everyone I know dragging badly.

    Sounds like you have a bunch of goodnin to look forward to this week.

    Stay cool and keep posting. (i treasure each post)

  3. So glad Paula is stopping by! I'm so grateful that you have (and are willing to share) that "glass is full" approach to life in this blog and elsewhere! But do pace yourself.

  4. Danielle, I am so glad you are blogging and I cherish each blog you post. It's so much easier than trying to sift through Facebook for updates.I want you to know that even though we are all lifting you and little Issac up in our prayers, you two are lifting us all up with your spirits. You are such an awesome woman and I gain courage through you. Sounds like you are in for a lot of wonderful company which I know will do you good. But please take everyone's advice and pace your self. With my MS I have learned especially when I am on steroids when I get tired, that is my body saying "OK stop for a while and rest or I'll melt down on ya!" It took me a long time to learn that...must be the hard headedness (spl?) in our blood, LOL.When I ignore that little voice I end up in bed for a few days instead of just a few hours so just pace yourself and listen to your body and you'll do fine. Love you little cuz!
