Where’s Waldo? Waldo has been traveling the world to new and exotic places. The world meaning North Carolina and new and exotic places means driving my daughter to Durham everyday. Yes it has been quite a long time since we lasted chatted. Three years or so to be exact. There have been changes in my life. Some good and some not so good. For the most part, life has been pretty okay.

Here is a brief up-to-date on what’s happening in Casa de Davis. Ashley has moved on from middle school to high school. She is attending a charter high school in Durham. It’s a great school and she seems to be loving it. I am happy about how well she adjusted to high school life.

Rich has started a new job (well not so new) and he loves it. It’s still in television which he loves. Best part about the job, he can work from home.

Some sadness has struck our family too. My beloved cat Jaxs has passed away. We had him for fifteen years. When we first got him, he fit in the palm of my hand. when he died he was over 2 feet long and weighed 25 pounds. Here is my favorite picture of Jaxs.

After we grieved for our fallen comrade, we soon welcomed a new family member. Say hello to Jinx. Our Exotic Shorthair kitty. She is so much calmer than Jaxs and she snorts like a pig because of her pushed in face. Needless to say, she fits right in with the family.

Last but not least, we have come to me. I am doing okay. Still trying to figure out what to do with the last half of my life. Pretty soon I am going to have an empty nest which makes me sad and excited at the same time. Looking at all my options and thinking them through. I know I want to do something that has meaning. Something that will do good in the world. What that is, I have no clue. Hopefully I will figure it out.

Stay tuned and I promise to update more. In future posts I will share my thoughts on the new shows that are about little women and what I have been up to with my spare time(can you say ‘photography’). Take care and leave a comment or two. I would love to hear from you.
