Phonecall from Amelia:
"Mimi, Wyatt and I were wrestling".
Silence, then in the same excited voice, "Wyatt and I were wrestling".
"Okay, and why is that news?"
"My tooth got knocked out!!"
"Oh my. Your first tooth. Did it hurt? Did you cry?"
"Well, just a little."
"It's okay. I still can remember when I lost my teeth".
"You do??!! Were you and Papa wrestling when they got knocked out?"
For the rest of the conversation all I could envision was Tim and I as little kids and him wrestling me to the ground and me coming up toothless and crying.
No artwork or amazing designs for you today, but a huge accomplishment. After many months Tim's mom's house is finally on the market! It looks fantastic, doesn't it? Well, you didn't see the befores. Don't even want to dig up the old pics, but everything was green. Seriously. Now I love green, but all the walls, woodwork and carpeting were a bit much. We were thrilled to find wood floors underneath the livingroom carpet. SCORE! It's a charming house, circa 1937 in East Lansing and within walking distance to Michigan State U. Strange to be at this point in life. So many memories were made there. Yes, in fact I think that's where Tim and I wrestled as 5 yr olds (okay, just kidding). However, it is in that livingroom that Tim kissed me for the first time...and then we wrestled... Okay, my family is going to kill me now. Bye bye.
