Jeremiah is on a (what we thought was going to be easy but instead has been) hard rotation right now. That has left me with an over-abundance of time with the little chicken wings…who’ve been acting like two rotten creatures from the deep, to put it mildly. Pace is going through some type of “fear of abandonment” a lot later than I thought it was supposed to happen. In all seriousness, she will not tolerate being in a different room than me and has started waking up multiple times at night scared. Lovely.
Then, there is Mary Aplin. Oh my word! I think she is frustrated because she can’t communicate (as in say words), even though she has caught on that WORDS are how you get things done in this world. So, in frustration, she pitches fits about E V E R Y T H I N G!!!
Caroline (my sister) got engaged to Riley Blair!!!! He flew her to JH Ranch (in California) where they met, and got down on one knee. I love that guy, and there’s something about adding a brother, in a family stocked full of estrogen, that is an exciting breath of fresh air. Let the planning begin!
There has been some exciting stuff happening with my little business. I can’t go into all the details, but check out my etsy, cause I’ve added some new items, like this:
something for fall, like this:
and wouldn’t you love to get a onesie all packaged up in a little bird’s nest like this: 🙂 The Camera:I spent some money and bought a good camera. It feels like Christmas as a kid, when you get that toy you’ve been dreaming of for so long. You keep looking at it lovingly and thinking, “You’re mine. ALL mine!” Jeremiah and I had been talking about it forever, but he just kept saying, “I think you’re right, but let’s go look at them together and decide.” I saw that the likelihood of him being off work during normal business hours AND willing to spend the time shopping–was slim to none. So I just went, on a random Wednesday morning, and bought the one I’d been drooling over. I made sure I could bring it back (if Jeremiah had an aneurysm), but I did it. It was sort of surreal.
