Anyway, this is Marty and his girlfriend Liz, taken by Holly just a few hours ago when Marty took Liz, Holly and Brett out to lunch.
In the winter Marty was being kinda cranky and Holly said "Marty needs a job and a girlfriend." Perhaps so. Now that he has a job, a girlfriend, a jeep and is some kind of Rock Band whiz in his spare time, he seems happy all the time.
I know no season and no person lasts forever, but today our family is laughing and happy. And I talked to Kirby mid-day and he seems to be doing all kinds of great. Then Holly and I went to the post office and the mall and had a productive and relaxed, fun time. I sent some things for the HSC raffle and they need to be there SOON (I didn't find out about it until early today), but they're packed and gone. Holly's new shoes came in but they're a little too big so we went to Journeys to ask them to send the next smaller size. They're some high-top Vans the store doesn't usually carry, but it's cheaper and quicker to order through the store than through the catalog. She was totally patient and good-natured about it, not like I would've been when I was her age (not like my parents bought me nice shoes, though my dad did buy me some blue suede hiking boots when I was like a college junior).
Anyway, even though our car is in the shop there is much peace and love here.
