I wrote once that I like to read my text messages again before I delete them. I just can't seem to do that efficient "erase all" thing.
If I did that, I would never get a review on some interesting messages. These are mostly from December. (I haven't polished them up, you'll notice.)
First, here is one from a day when Jeff took the girls Christmas shopping without me.
From Emilee - LOL Riley just told dad NOT to look at the underwear or bras!
When I texted back and asked his response I got...
From Emilee - He said oh cuz i haven't lived in a house full of girls forever:)
I enjoy random hellos from my family too.
From Emilee - Greetings earthling
From Kaitie - U <-------- the joy of my existence
From Jeff - I love you
And hey, that message from Jeff was a big deal. He is just coming into the texting world, slowly but surely.
There are also those messages which I have sent.
To Kaitie - Riley just said "Kaitie and Emilee are on my team, and YOU are alone."
One day, also during Christmas, Ally sent me a text message saying that someone had asked her if she was "high." If you know Ally, you know that was a silly question. I sent her back a silly answer.
To Ally: I bumped my head on the Salvation Army sign when I was trying to put a buck in the kettle. I also forgot to take Em to piano this morning. I got too annoyed with Dad over nothing. The girls aren't speaking to each other. I miss you! What are you high on? Are you sharing?
When Ally asked me if my bumped head was okay I told her it was....
...fine. I was just so ashamed. The older woman with the bell said, "These aren't cleverly made." I said, "I am not cleverly made."
And really, here is one of my main reasons for this post. I want to experiment with this little video. Right after Riley got her bike for Christmas, Jeff took all the girls to the park. I wasn't feeling well, and I stayed home to sleep. Emilee decided I should be reading text messages rather than sleeping. She sent me some videos from her phone of Riley learning to ride her bike. It's rough video, because it was from her phone...but I could really see Riley's progress and I loved it. It will be interesting to see how it looks here:
Like I said, not picture perfect, but fun for me.
I had one stray message in my Sent Box from October when I got a root canal. It was telling about my day:
To Ally - I am alive! Going to takr a pill anf a nap. love yoiu
I think I needed that nap!
