Check me out.
I’m, like, doing stuff…
you know — stuff…
making a list.
Yep, I made a list.
But wait, it’s more exciting than that. Not only have I made a list, I’ve actually checked a few items off said list. Pretty cool, right?
Do I sense some virtual high fives coming my way?
Whoa, all this attention is kinda giving me a big head — I don’t want to get too cocky. I mean, I haven’t even started putting paint on the walls quite yet.
Though, I’ve got to say — Liam’s room is looking like it is ready for something magical to happen.
Check it out: Remember this???
Well, feast your eyes on this…

Okay, my big head is now deflating and is starting to spin a little.
…lots of work ahead of me, but I have faith I will check off each and every item on my list. Step by step.
It’s funny, but the lyrics to the chorus of the Step by Step theme song are somewhat reflective of my life right now.
Step by step
Day by day
A fresh start over
A different hand to play
The deeper we fall
The stronger we stay
And we’ll be better
The second time around
Huh…who knew that a cheesy 90’s sitcom theme song from my youth could be resurrected 20 years later and be relevant in my life as an adult. GULP…has it really been 20 YEARS???!!! Does anyone know if the New Kids on the Block have changed their name to the Old Farts on the Dock yet?
