Home but not among the living

I got "yelled" at by my daughter this morning for not having updated my here "in a nutshell" is the reason why! I did a totally "stupid" move on our way home from Newark on Thurs......tripped, fell on my face & without going into the "gory details" have 4 stitches in my nose & look like I went 7 or 8 rounds with Mike Tyson!!!! Enough said!

This is Sophia in her highchair on Saturday eating congee (homemade by Gramma Jo). She seems to be adjusting slowly to being home but her nights are still a little are ours..... so we can understand. She is an amazing baby & seems to deal with what life throws at her very well. I still don't think we have seen the "real Li Li " yet but do get some glimpses.

China was totally awesome & I'm so glad I got experience the whole trip with them. Mark & Dani just took on the role of parents like they had been doing it forever! One of the best parts of the trip was experiencing "gotcha" day with all the families & then seeing each baby become familiar & comfortable with their new family. They were all so different & have their own unique personalities.

I kept a journal of the trip & after I go through & read it some more I will post some of the highlights.............right now the beginning of our journey seems like an eternity away!


  1. Yeah, you're blogging your trip!! Can't wait to read everything -- don't leave anything out (not just for me, but for Sophia LiLi, as well!)

    So sorry about your nose. Gonna post a picture?! ;^)

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
