Oh my goodness, where have I been?
I'll tell you where. Right here at home, rocking Sticky Bean. Deb and David and Sticky came up last week and stayed from Tuesday through this morning. What a great visit we had!
Sticky is sort of a crabby baby, but he's just so precious, I don't even care! We tried a few different pacifiers, but he still prefers a finger--it feels like he's going to suck the nail right off it. Deb is doing much better, although still moving slowly. But we were able to do a little bit of shopping, and everyone else went to see the Mets play the Nats in DC on Friday night. Deb and Sticky and I stayed home--we decided that would be too much walking for Deb. And we managed to squeeze in a visit to Chipotle because we know what's important.
Then on Saturday, the kids kicked Ben and me out of the house. We wondered why, but figured they were going to clean it up or something. We went out for breakfast, sat at an outside table at Starbuck's for an hour, and got Ben a haircut. When we got home, there was a huge banner on the front porch and cars were lining the street. Somehow it slipped our minds that tomorrow is our 25th wedding anniversary. But the kids remembered.
We walked into a crowd, had a great meal, and then watched a video slideshow of our first 25 years that Abbie had put together. If I can figure out how to compress it, I'll get it up here in the next day or so. I've watched it a few times and I still cry every time I see it. Incredible.
Today I got five hours of work in, did tons of laundry, put the girls back in their room, went to the bank and Walmart, made supper, took the dog for a walk, and started prepping Abbie for her ACT which is this Saturday. We don't procrastinate at all.
I just barely have time for a shower and some ice cream before I have to go to bed so I can get up tomorrow and do it all again. Stay tuned for the video . . .
Be thankful ~
