MY SISTER COMES IN 2 DAYS!
I think my DSLR is broken :( Sad. day. Especially since MY SISTER COMES IN 2 DAYS and she’s the master photographer.
I bought 4 tubs of Talenti Gelato for our friends we had over yesterday but they left before we had dessert. Guess it’ll be treats for a certain SISTER WHO COMES IN 2 days…and me.
I am procuring babysitters for adventures with MY SISTER WHO COMES IN 2 days since bart is leaving for a week. Dinner out…breakfast out…antiquing and who knows what else?!
Last week I went to the beach TWO TIMES- sadly this is big for me this summer. Last summer Krista would scoff at my excitement but heck, 8 month olds are tough at the beach. Who knew? Thankfully MY SISTER WHO COMES IN 2 days will come to the beach with me and that will make it much more enjoyable.
I made a major life decision today. I threw out ALL our puzzles. They are the kid puzzle kind…where every piece has a spot in the wood slabs…and it was my grand plan to do daily puzzle time. Instead, all the pieces have been scattered
to the ends of the earth everywhere in this house and Maya chews on them and it’s just not good. So. I collected every piece I could find and chucked them all. NONE contain every piece anymore, so I couldn’t donate them anywhere but it felt so good to be done with them.
We got new speakers for our computer and they are sweet. Now we can blast music throughout the whole house. Downside is, I don’t hear Maya very quickly when she wakes up from her naps. Oops.
Did I mention that last week, one of the beach trips I made was with JUST bart. I decided it was time to experience the beach with no children…like the olden days. Ohhhh it was glorious. We went in the morning, armed with iced coffee, beach chairs and a book…well, bart had his surf board. He surfed and I sat in the sunshine, quietly taking it all in. I actually closed my eyes at one point- what a treat!!! And I read several chapters of a book…imagine that? Yes, I watched Bart surf, or tried to watch, but it’s hard when all the wetsuit humans blend together. 3 hours of delicious alone time- followed by a delightful seafood lunch on the patio of a boat dock.
