I know I promised I would not blog but I just wanted to check in and say that I have had an interesting few days. I have been spending a lot of time with my kids and just taking advantage of the opportunity to have fun. I had done of a good job of staying away from my computer, not blogging as much, and really, the only time I have spent on the computer, was doing advocacy work over at Arthritis Connect. If you have not checked out Arthritis Connect, please take a moment to do so. You will find a lot of information and support about the variety of arthritis conditions out there.
Today my kids and I joined my friend Rhonda and her grown son at the Rainforest which is part of the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. The boys had a blast and even the baby had a good time. Elliott was mesmerized by the variety of monkeys and the orangutans. He also was intrigued the bigger lizards, snakes and fish. He could have just stayed there for hours staring at the crocodiles and alligators. He stood right in front of a huge alligator tank and watched the alligators and the big turtles (I do not recall the exact names) in awe. I forgot my digital camera at home but I managed to snap a few on my cell phone. The quality is not great because the rainforest is not very well lit and the photos are only cell phone quality.
This morning before I left the house, I read my horoscope and I realized how quickly things change. My ten year old is going to NYC to visit his aunt during spring break. He will be gone for a week and it will be the longest week of my life. They really do grow up so fast.
My horoscope for today:
Do you often act on the basis of the idea that world is static and that nothing really changes, Lana? Sometimes you may think to yourself, “Mankind is like this, this is how the world is, and so, this is what I am going to do.” Have you ever heard of evolution? Mankind is in constant evolution and so is the world. Look around you!
