Been busy. And negligent--I know I promised photos of various things and a recipe to boot. Recipe to follow tonight unless I get too tired and then it'll have to wait. Here's the juicy gossip and updates from our lives...
*The head of Sophia's school was fired. I have mixed feelings about this. Well, not really. I won't say anything else here except that I think it's probably, in the end, a good move for the school.
*I got a leather chair on Craigslist that I love, that Mike loves, that the girls love, that the cats love. It replaced the old glider rocking chair that was undersized for my living room. Now, finally, with two cabinets, a gate-leg table with the leaves down, a large couch, coffee table, end table, two lamps, dresser with a TV on it, and this big chair and ottoman, my living room finally feels appropriately furnished. Oy these rooms are big.
*Bevin still house hunts. But things are looking positive.
*Leo is saying "ma ma ma" with regularity. And he's developing some signs of his own (like "I want you to hold me" that involves hitting his chest with his fists in tandem). His hair is curly, there's no doubt now. And he's 9 months old somehow.
*I will be 35 soon. Wow.
*I had dental work done (I posted about that already) and my tooth and jaw still hurt like crazy today. Yesterday they were fine. But today it rained all day...maybe that's part of it. I don't know.
*Maeve, being 5, got to start open studio hours at SCOSAG. She went today for the first time. Shivering with excitement. Need to keep that girl busy...
*Sophia was supposed to go in for dyslexia testing on Wednesday but instead developed a fever and vomiting thing and crashed on the couch all morning long. Gone by 2 in the afternoon, but totally wiped her out. So it's scheduled now for next Tuesday.
*Finished Little House in the Big Woods with Maeve the other night and cried at the end. I'm such a baby. Now we're reading some old school Bobbsey Twins books. Sophia and I are three chapters from being done with Fellowship of the Ring. Awesome.
All for now (time to read, in fact).
