tangent #1: i love shoveling snow. i don't even really like snow but i do like cleaning it off sidewalks, driveways, and yes, even grass with a shovel. when we were little my sisters and i would have little competitions (or maybe only i thought that's what they were) of who could clear the most snow off the driveway first. since i was the eldest, i would get the largest shovel, bananas would get the medium sized shovel and poor surah would get the smallest shovel. poor surah. guess who never won that game?
Tangent #3: my very first pet was a cat named "Gatito." my parents let us adopt him my senior year of high school and pretty much as soon as i went off to college they wasted no time in getting rid of him. i will never let them live it down. also we dressed him up in christmas outfits and we later found out why he was so obese/pre-diabetes: little brother DK was feeding (sneaking) him cat food daily... even though that was my responsibility. yet he still mastered acting famished every time we would feed him. whoops.
And I know you are just waiting for another pic of baby d after all this blast from the past business so here he is in all his rollie-pollie glory:
