Picture Tag!


Kristen tagged me to pick the 4th picture in my 4th folder. Well, here it is. Obviously, I kept things honest, because how uninteresting is this?! I moved out of my apartment at the end of May and before I locked the door for the last time and turned in my keys, I took a bunch of pictures. See those steps? Right before I left, I sat down and thought about the fact that my entire marriage began and ended in this little space. I thought about my nephews going up and down the stairs and the time the littlest one fell down them. I thought about how comfortable I was there and how I knew where everything was in the dark. About a thousand other memories came to mind. And I know it sounds really sentimental, but the fact is, I was trying to be sentimental. My sister mourned each place she lived and then left, but I never thought twice about it. So I tried to feel something. It's not that I'm heartless, I just had things to do, a new life to get on with. So, it didn't happen then, but now - 6 months later, looking at this picture, I think I feel a case of the weepies coming on. Thanks a lot, Kristen! :)

And the story of Little pup falling down the stairs? He was on the 4th step and I was sitting right next to him. I was supposed to be watching him, but what could happen 4 steps up? He hit his head on this, I don't know, squared off baseboard thing and he immediately had a gigantic really colorful knot. I was freaking out (he was also freaking out), but his mom said, "Is is dented in or out?" I said, "Out." She said, "He'll be fine." I guess by the time the second one comes along, bumps on the head are a fairly normal occurrence.

Even though it's been 4 years and his head looks normal, he still looks a little upset with me.
