Oh, right, back to MY boring life in Washington.
Our days of vacationing are behind us. We did a lot of traveling before Alexander arrived so we are happy (only slightly jealous) spending most of our summer at home.
We do just about the same thing every day.
Alexander wakes up between 7 and 7:30, with his "I go pee! I go poo!" announcement.
I drag myself downstairs to clean him up, turn on his TV shows, and start my coffee.
We go to swim lessons, followed by daily errands that vary from grocery shopping, going to the library, or any other random event that is necessary.
If the weather is bad, we come home and I clean house while the boys work on a puzzle or play with toys. I also go work out, which is great for my alone time.
If the weather is good, we all head outside to work on the yard with a roaring fire, burning everything we cut down.
Why all this yard work? Well, our house is the site of the D family reunion. That's Mom's side of the family. And the reunion is in two weeks. ACK! There is SO MUCH to do to get the yard in party mode. Granted, we kinda thought we'd have an addition on the house by now so we let a few
My awesome family says they don't care a lick how the house or yard looks. But I care. And Eric cares. So we work.
All we have remaining in this area is to put down bark and edge it a bit.
One project done.
About a zillion to go!
