Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

My Umbrella...ella...ella...

I bought this umbrella a few weeks ago (Old Navy! Can you believe it in all of it's toile goodiness?!) to keep the sun off my Irish skin. Ever since getting that heart shaped (at least there is some justice in the world) sunspot on the bridge of my nose, I have been using a good face sunscreen but I still needed more protection from the sun when I have duty at school. This umbrella is too cool for school but I do, in fact, use it at school because as everyone knows there is NO FREAKIN RAIN AROUND HERE to actually use it the way God intended the umbrella to be used.

Anywho... the point is - the umbrella protects me from the harsh rays of the sun.

This weekend, I was under the umbrella of my family. They kept me cool and calm, feeling loved and needed. I got to cook and clean a bit for Sweet Pea and I LOVE THAT. I love being there for her because when I was pregnant and thowing up 24/7 no one was there (SAVE SPARKY OF COURSE! and he was A DOLL!) to help me. I WANT to be there for her, to help her through this time - no one knows like I do what she is going through. We just don't do pregnancy well. But we are happy moms so all will be well.

And lastly, I want to send a thank you to my friend from work who was an umbrella of advice and protection tonight. Words of wisdom and assurance were greedily taken and used to soothe the sunburn I am feeling at work.

So there you have it... I am covered well by family and friends.

It's going to be a good day tomorrow.

Now if I could just remember where I put the umbrella after I took this photo.
