Got up this morning at 5:15..so very sleepy. Drove to the Portland Temple, tried to be alert and attentive and inspired. Drove home to my darling kids who my mother in law so graciously watched.
It was good to get away, even if I was mostly asleep it seemed. I was a complete witch yesterday. My in-law's plumbing is getting completely redone. It's a good thing..., but quite a pain for us folks living downstairs (where much of the cutting, draining, adhesiving (word?) is going on). My living space is a complete unorganized disaster! And now that we are possibly, hopefully-won't tell you much more than that, right now-moving back to Richmond, I'm in clean out and pack up mode, and the fact that I can't do it is driving me nutty nuts. Let life take me, not me take it-that's what I'm learning.
Dayne's 4 on May 1st. If anyone wants to send a bag of balloons, she'd be thrilled (yes, I realize that might contradict my newfound desire to be less wasteful). As you can see in above pics, my kids LOVE balloons. I bought a bag at Fred Meyer on a whim the other day, and it was hours before they stopped tossing 'em around, filling them up with water, fighting over them, etc. I'm thinking it's time to buy another bag since we ran out on Sunday and they've been asking for more ever since.
