“It’s Norwegian you know.” we would say to each other and then we would dissolve into laughter. I guess every family has their own inside jokes. That’s what I miss the most. All these years later there are no tears. I have only sweet memories. When I can’t sleep I only have to pick ome (sic) and I’m gone.

Another one of Tom’s pocket things. I’m not even sure he used it that often. It’s small and it only has the single blade. doesn’t even have a bottle opener. But I remember it was handy the time we were at the hardware store and we couldn’t keep the trunk closed. He sliced up his hankie and retied it to make a rope.

Goldfinches, Robins, Blue Jays, Grackles, Crows, Pigeons, Cardinals and Sparrows. Gray and little Red Squirrels too. I know I should be taking the feeders down but I love watching the birds so much I’ll risk having the bear come around. I remember last year when a mama came around with two cubs. They never forget where the food is.

I slept like a baby. That’s silly, babies are up all night. Thinking about the boys this morning. Justin already has a job lined up after graduation. He’s going to move to Hartford. I can’t remember the insurance company. Brandon’s coming home for the summer. He said the gym was keeping his life guard position for him.

I capitalized. Yes.

appointment this morning. why do we always wait. I’m supposed to use better punctuation and remember to capitalize first letter in a sentense. She wrote it down so I’ll remember. It slows me down even more. I have to think hard and practice more. Peter took me so Emily could go to burlington with her girlfriends. they’re shopping and then picking the boys up at the airport. spring break.

i almost wrote 4:48. no, it’s not that late. there are 7 pairs of scissors in this drawer. why do we say pair. isn’t each one a scissor. singular. i’ve wondered about this for years. when i worked with Andrew he always said scissor. but he was from Montreal. is it singular in French. i I need to work on capitals.
