reflecting on my week

here are some of my thoughts as i wrap up the week...

jake had his senior pictures taken tuesday. for months, i only viewed this as something on the "to do" list. as i followed around and helped the photographer, watching jake pose and crack his million dollar smile, i realized this was the last time i had to go through this process and that it signifies the beginning of a new stage - jake's senior year. i need to remember to enjoy each and every day for this next year, because then he's gone.

*****
danielle and i experienced the titanic exhibit and imax movie at our local museum. she has always been interested in the titanic and the exhibit was great, really giving you an idea of what it was like to be a passenger on this famous ship. i've been reflecting on something that was said in the movie.

it went something like this; once you know a little bit about the titanic, you measure your life against it. how would you have handled the fact that the ship was going down? would you have been panicked and manic? or would you have been cool, calm and collected? would you have done anything to get into a life boat? or would you have accepted your fate? would you have helped those around you? or would it have been all about you and saving yourself?

61%How Addicted to Blogging Are You?
i took this little test this week and the results show that i'm 61% addicted to blogging. i'm not sure about that. i know it's just a 'canned' survey, but i figured i was more addicted than that.

*****
i'm going to start doing a POST OF THE WEEK. this will be a post that i've read sometime during the week and really think it should be read by everyone. so this week, it's reflections on life and parenting by simplynutmeg.com.

i feel bad that some of the people i tagged yesterday had already been tagged. and since i enjoyed making those names so much, i wanted to make some more. so i'm tagging three more people.

I took the quiz and am 60% addicted to blogging. I think that's about right. =o) I can't wait to see Jakes pictures. As far as the titanic question, I suppose the RIGHT answer would be that I'd be composed...but I don't think that's how I would actually be.

I enjoyed reading your reflections!

The post of the week really made me think and the glass giant site was just way too much fun - that was not a good one to put on - do those kind when you know I'm on vacation!!!! :D

The milestones will pass to another level, but oh I am with you. We just moved our oldest out, and off to business school, work and his own direction...so the milestones are clicking away for us all!!
