It’s been a while since my last post. I had every intention of keeping up with this year’s blog challenge and other things, too, but I just spent 2 1/2 months with my daughter and grandkids while my son-in-law was out of the country working, and the weeks just got away from me. I’m not sure why they did. My daughter works. My grandkids go to school. I was at home alone most of every day during the week, and yet I somehow couldn’t manage to get my act together.
But I’m home now, and although I do have to work on training Colonel Brandon, the puppy my family gave me for Christmas, I think I might actually be able to get my act together now.
Of course, I would choose to come back on a week when the prompt (Things Only My Family Would Understand) requires some thought. And I would wait until late Thursday afternoon to start working on my blog post, but I’ll give it a go.
Some of the things only my family would understand:
#1. Why I say “strawl” instead of “straw” when referring to one of those things you drink through.
#2. Why my daughters and I feel such a connection to the movie Mermaids.
#3. Why I celebrate February 13th every year.
#4. The day the music died for me.
#5. Walking on the ceiling with Granddaddy.
#6. Why I place my “Noel” cups on the shelf backward every Christmas.
#7. What it means when one of us says, “There is something wrong with your bowels.”
#8. “Thwilight bark.”
I know it’s a cryptic list, and I could explain them all to you…but they they’d no longer be things only my family would understand.
