I have not been blogging much. We have been busy, and perhaps I have been a tad bit uninspired, a wee bit down in the dumps. It turns out I am a very active person, and when I am forced to stand still I go a little nutty.
The summer is speeding by. We are about to enter August, usually my most favorite month of the year. It is packed with outdoor activity, and has the added bonus of being the month of my wedding anniversary and birthday. I used to love my birthday. This year is year number 38, and suddenly, I'm not loving it so much. I don't want to be 38. I would prefer 28 thank you very much. Now, with the lack of physical activity and a birthday I would almost like to forget***, I'm not so into August.
This past weekend my friend Erin visited from Boston. Erin is one of those easy friends, the kind where conversation seems to come naturally and I know she is always there. If she were still living here, I would have a friend to meet for spontaneous play dates, coffee or cocktails. I miss her terribly. Friends like Erin are hard to find. It was so refreshing to spend the weekend with her!
Julian has learned to climb the stairs, which has created a whole host of problems. It took me a moment to realize he was a Master Climber. It was a day last week when I was in the kitchen cleaning up dinner and realized that Julian was out of sight. It turned out that he had made it all the way upstairs, into my office. He was playing in the litter box. Of course he was. What could be more fun (when you are fourteen months?) We have since installed a gate, but it keeps falling down, and often leaves Julian wailing at it's door, wanting nothing more than to scale the stairs and make his way back to the beloved cat box.
Zack and Evan are their old mischievous selves. Fighting, making messes and never doing as they are told. (Like shutting off the jets in the bathtub. See picture for bubble bath disaster.)
So there you have it, a random ramble of what's going on in my life today.
Better post next time.
