I keep thinking things will slow down and I will have a chance to catch my breath. Update my blog. Call some friends. Change the sheets.
But not so much. Between this, and that, and the other thing, it's been pretty full-tilt boogie for me for months now.
Good things to be busy with though. Love, work, family. The essential three :)
He turned 32 earlier this week and for once, I think he wasn't completely miserable on his birthday. Maybe because we all assumed he would be? Maybe because the kids and I made him superlative cookies that actually tasted good? Who knows? All I do know is that in the midst of the renovations and the kids and the store and the busy, he and I are good. The foundation of my life and what makes everything else possible. I sure did get lucky with this guy.
And then there's this girl:
Five. She is sitting right next to me right now watching Caspar the Friendly Ghost (she also likes Woody the Woodpecker) and plotting world domination, or, her current obsession, a cell phone. So she can take pictures. She walks off with mine whenever I'm not looking and so my photo album is full of blurry pictures of the cat and strange videos.
This is her best friend right now. They go to the same pre-school, lives on Main Street, came into the store for a sandwich and the two of them disappeared behind the counter to read books peacefully together. Not that they can read yet. But they think they can.
K. has been primary parenting lately. He's doing a good job.
I like having outside dogs.
Caspian is great. Three, but great.
And now my sister called.
More catching up to do!!!
