Call me a nerd if you like, but I love getting my new calendar for the year. Most years my Dad gets all us girls one for Christmas, but some years I get the job myself. This year Ronsi, Macie and I headed to the calendar store after Christmas (they are 50% off then, ya know) to find my 2008 calendar. There were a lot of nice ones left and I had 2 or 3 that I thought would do, but then my eye landed on my choice. It is called "The Road Home". You are probably thinking that calendars do not normally have titles, but they do and this one I just loved. My road home leads me lots of places. I can take 35 South to my home in Iowa where my wonderful family is or I can take 494, 94, 39, 270 (I am pretty sure those are not correct- Jamie will be apalled) or something close to that and go to my home in Ohio where more family and great friends live, I can drive around my newest home state, Minnesota, visiting my "might as well be family" and at the end of the day come home to be with my precious little family of Jamie, Tori, Isabelle and the Mace. I am a rich woman and I am thankful for my new calendar and its reminder to me of how thankful I am for all my roads home.

so excited you are back and posting more than ever. Glad you found the perfect calendar...thats a little weird.. but I support you and your love for finding a great calendar every new year. Ummm...I could have sent you the Oklahoma Adoption Coalition Calendar that Silas made the cover of.... I ordered a few thinking family members (besides my mom) would want one... they didn't. (jerks)

how could someone not want a calendar with Silas T on the cover...I am not sure it would have fit my calendar holder, but I would have loved it anyway.

Remember the days of being psyched to find our Giant Grid calendar for a buck every year? This is the first year I was unsuccessful. Couldn't find one, so I settled for one titled "On the Front Porch." I'm so with you on loving my new calendars.
