1553690_63230204This year when we went to Universal we found this guy.

He was super friendly and even nuzzled Kennedy a bit…and didn’t try to eat her head…

Much.

Honestly, it took some convincing to get the kids to go see the raptor, and I was more excited than they were to go see it (and Molly flat-out refused).

It was one of the coolest moments we shared outside of Hogwarts, though.

The raptor was impressive, and the calls it made were perfection.

I was so geeked out, I could hardly think, but it was still so awesome. I can’t wait to go see him again.

5.5 years until 2021!

Not that I’m counting, or anything…

Dreaming On…

DreamsandPossibilitiesMarch was a sucktastic month, I’ve made no secret of that.

But it’s over now.

With some carnage around us, we are gathering the pieces together, and re-evaluating some things.

The teen is graduating soon and moving on to bigger and better (and warmer) things. He’s pulling up stakes and moving down south to pursue a dream.

Whether it’s me turning 40, hubby turning almost-50, the teen leaving home, or just the hell of a month we went through – we are starting to look at where we are ourselves vs. where we want to be.

DisneyDreamsWe’ve begun to dream big.

Bigger than we’ve allowed ourselves to dream in a while.

Right now it’s all pipe dreams and wishes,

but as Walt Disney said – “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”

Now all we have to do is muster some courage and pursue them all.

We needed a spark of hope, and we’ve given it to ourselves.

It’s kind of terrifying, and so very exciting.

I’d gotten in a rut, and sort of beat down.

It feels really good to dream again.

I’m Calling It

MarchI don’t care if I’m a few days early.

I don’t care if it isn’t technically correct.

I’m calling it anyway.

March is DEAD. It can die now.  It’s April -4 so far as I’m concerned.

HI APRIL!!  You’re a beautiful month. I know you’ll be a fair sight better than that bitch, March.

After all, the only thing she gave me was broken drain pipes, cash flowing out way faster than it was coming in, heartache, and stress levels so high I couldn’t sleep.

April, I welcome your soothing rains, your signs of spring, you warming temps. I also welcome the arrival of April 20th when I can see and hug my bestie and my second mom again. Hell, when I can hug all those crazy, insane ICDC people again.

So hello, April -4th. Glad to see you. You’re a beautiful thing, you are.
