Kiss the guns? Wait no....

Best JETTISM ever: (yes I've said this before). He was just trying to tell me how tired his arms and legs are; showed me his arm muscle and said "See the guns. They are out of bullets."

Fess up, who taught him that?! He promises he didn't learn it from anyone!

Jett on Feeling Good on the inside

Jett's been going to Newbreak Church with me for about 3 weeks. Learning all kinds of new great stuff. Its reminding me to not let the wonderful things he's learning and talking about disappear. So many things I should document here, but at this very moment I just don't want to forget what he just said.

Context: We were talking about how good it feels inside to do a great job on his school work. (note: he's been learning about the Holy Spirit and the good feelings on the inside).

Me: "You know I'm proud of you, but how does it feel in there (pointing to his chest)?

Jett:  "Great! But maybe its the Holy Spirit or God or (yells) JESUS! Or the 1st Peter".

LOL: He learned his first scripture last week in the book of 1 Peter. So now he's calling him the "1st Peter". Doesn't matter if he's mixing up facts a bit. He's learning it, loving it, and in typical Jett fashion, saying AWESOME things. :-)

Whoa is me.

Ouch. Achilles Tendon is sore. The podiatrist said it might be a small tear and that I really shouldn't run for 3 weeks. Let's see now... it's 2 weeks and 5 days until the La Jolla Half Marathon. Which, btw, for those of you that aren't familiar, takes you up the huge Torrey Pines hill. Doctor also said, when I do start running, no hills for a while since that motion puts a lot of pressure on the Achilles Tendon. Oh, I'm going to get really grumpy, really fast.


(right after I had gone on a 12 mile run and was carrying Jett): Mommy, did you go for a run? (Yes, I did!) Cuz you smell like it.

Divorce is final

What more can I say.... 3/24 is the date that it became official. Wow.

Jesse & I would have been married 8 years this coming tax day (4/15/2010). We just signed the final papers this past Friday, hard to believe it. I have mixed feelings about the whole thing. Happy its finally resolved (all the details), but understandbly (I believe) a bit sad about how things turned out. Let me be clear, I still think it was the right decision, but it certainly has it's expected (and unexpected) consequences. The mediator said it will be 2-4 weeks before its official. Wondering what the chances are that the papers will be stamped as final exactly on 4/15?

All in all, things have gone as good as one could hope for. Jett is understandably sad - he says he doesn't like that he always has to miss one of us. But as far as these things go, it couldn't be any better. Jesse and I coordinate, very closely, how we want to raise & discipline Jett. We have even been taking a parenting class together. BTW, I recommend this course to any parents. It's wonderful and so worth the expense.  More later...
