making tracks

I know I need to post some letters this week but I am making tracks out to the sticks so I’m out of time. Naptime will be spent in the car today and not on my laptop. You know how that goes. So how about we make this special request Friday.

I already have two special requests (and the much needed letters) in the que so why not add yours to it? Maybe when I’m out at my moms, she will babysit and I will write up a weekend storm. Or paint. Either one.

I’m heading out to the sticks for my Dad this time. As you know, yesterday was his birthday. Today he is having surgery. Nice present, right?. A small minor surgery, but surgery none the less. After he recovers he will be heading back on the road as a trucker again. We are all sad about that but his desk job just wasn’t cutting it financially. So I want to spend as much home time with him as I can before he makes tracks.

If you want to be super sweet. Click over here and send my dad some happy birthday/get well/bon voyage wishes. Maybe a bunch of comments will coax him to actually write a post on my laptop while he is sitting in bed over the next few days.

    So sorry your dad has to spend his Birthday that way. My dad had knee replacement this past year on his 60th birthday. We took him some cake that night to celebrate. I think it made him feel so special.
    I love daddy’s..they seem so important..well they are.

    Gotta love those Mary Jane’s! I had a black pair a LONG time ago, and I wore them so much that the soles thinned out – lol! I think they resulted with holes in the soles from so much wear! My heart’s desire would be the Black Mary Jane’s from Sex and the City (Carrie’s), only with a modified lower “mommy heel” – lol! I wonder if I could get my pal Manolo Blahnik to make some for me? Now where did I leave his number…

    Cute cute shoes!

    Request: I would love to hear about your ideal/dream freelancing assignments. OR, about your dream party theme.

    Hope you have a great visit with your Dad, sorry that he is having surgery right after his birthday, that is a bit sucky. And sorry to hear that he has to head back out on the road, I hope that he also misses it just a little bit so as to give a little more incentive to go back out there.

    Ooh, cute shoes. And they look super comfy.

    My special request would be for you to talk about growing up in the sticks. Did you grow up in the sticks? Do you wish BB could have the same experiences? My husband grew up in the sticks and he wishes so much that our kids could live in the same environment that he grew up in. I’m a suburban girl so I usually ignore him when he starts talking about that.

    Enjoy your dad time.
