Yes, I've been neglecting this blog.  I have a great reason though.  This year, we moved. Twice. And guess what? We still have half a house worth of stuff STILL TO MOVE. Yeah, relocating isn't an easy thing, especially when the market is smokin' hot!

Yeah, we went into this house hunting adventure thinking it was a buyers market. We couldn't be more wrong! Where we are at, it's a seller's market.  Around here, if you don't put an offer on a house the minute you walk through, kiss it goodbye.  When we didn't think we got the house we are currently living in, we actually put an offer on a house we never laid eyes on just so we'd have a chance to get it.  Yeah, it was nuts.  But luckily, we ended up winning the bid war and got the house we put our first offer on.

So, here I am. 

About the same weight I was in 2009.

Daddy-Daughter Day

Daddy-Daughter Day

It’s a Friday and I’m on a 9:55pm flight to Las Vegas.

My parents have been watching Daphne for the past week and I’m on my way to bring her back to Northern California.  I smile as I imagine the look on Daphne’s face when I walk into the room and she notices that it’s me; how so beautifully indescribable that feeling will be.

And then the reality of why I’m 10,000 feet in the air jolts me back to earth. I’m taking my baby girl back to Sacramento for one reason and one reason only:

Roger is going to die.

Upon that realization, my mind is back to where it was before takeoff: like a recent divorcee on a Thursday night, developing a plan to shoehorn as many memories as possible into one weekend.

Not a little girl anymore...

Not a little girl anymore...

Yesterday I had accompanied my daughter and her school, Carden Academy to O'Connor Woods, a retirement community, where they sang holiday songs for the residences. I was so excited that I was able to join my daughter during this field trip.

It was so much fun watching the kids get excited and nervous to sing. I remember those days. And it's still hard for me to accept that now it's my daughter's turn. She's getting busy with activities and school functions that she's no longer my little baby. She's grown-up and is a little girl.
