Day One

Like I don't have enough to do - I decide to start a blog. I am Cathy I am 39 and this is my life. I have a husband, Scott and 2 sons. Phil is 17 and Drew is 4. Also living with us is Aaron an exchange student from S. Korea. He is the third exchange student we have had. Yoo Sung is at Penn State and Sung is at Indiana. Both are college students. Also in residence are Kayla, the dog, Tilly and McCavity, the cats and a tank full of fish. I like to knit, cook read and spend time with my family - you know the usual mom stuff.

We live in a small town in the Midwest where is life is pretty calm. My life on the other hand is busy. Or at least I think it is. Currently we are planning a 10 day vacation to the MouseHouse in Florida. We leave in less than 2 weeks.

Phil goes to a small private school and I do volunteer work for them. He is involved in soccer and theater. Currently we are doing the college search for next year. We were to be in Minnesota this week looking at schools. Instead Phil decided to get sick and loose 17 pounds in 2 weeks so that put the trip on hold. The docs think he may have Chrons.

Drew is wonderful. Full of energy. Sometimes too much energy. He keeps us on our toes with his sense of humor and his antics. We never know what is going to be next with him. He has a stuffed monkey that is very real to him. Monkey goes everywhere and is Drew's alter ego.

Just for the record. I also have one sister who is my polar opposite and we rarely see eye to eye about anything. My mom died just over 2 years ago after along illness and my dad has remarried. I don't have much dealings with them as our values are totally different. It is hard because we used to be a very close loving family. Little did i realize it was my mom that kept it that way.
