Catch up

Okay, so I know it’s been way too long since I’ve posted here.

And it’s 1:33 a.m. and I have to work at about 9 a.m. and get out of the house by 10:15 a.m. for a meeting with Grace’s teacher . . . then I promised we’d stop by the Dollar Tree so she can get some items for the dollhouse she’s constructing . . . and I have to be back at work by 1 p.m.

So I don’t have time to really write anything here.

But here’s a quick mention of a few things that happened in the last month:

1)  My husband and I went to Disney World.  And I coughed the whole way there (sorry, Man I Sat Next To on the Plane) and coughed the whole time I was there, then coughed all the way home (Sorry Other Man I Sat Next To on the Plane). But it was fun.  And humid.

2)  Work.  More work, work, work.  We had a week where several employees were gone and so I worked a lot of extra hours.  A lot.  Like, maybe 55 hours for the week.

3)  We took Zach and Grace to Disneyland to celebrate Zach’s birthday–which was really 9 days before his birthday, so in reality, we were celebrating his due date.  (The older boys don’t like Disney so they stayed home.)  It was weird being there two weeks after being at Disney World.  The Disneyland castle was kind of pitiful compared to the Disney World Magic Kingdom castle.

What else?  What have I been doing?  There’s more, of course, but I have no idea what.

I do want to talk more about February 17, which was Zach’s due date and also a date that was significant to me for another reason but there simply isn’t time tonight.  Maybe soon.  I hope soon.

Oh, the other thing is that Grace was baptized last Sunday at church.  Only she calls it “bathetized” and I will never, ever correct her  mispronunciation because I find it charming and adorable.  And doesn’t it make sense that it’s “bath-e-tize”?  As in, you get dunked in a bath-tub-like-tank?  I love that.

She was so excited for that moment and before her dad baptized her, he asked her to recite the 23rd Psalm and to my amazement, she did so in a strong voice without any hesitation whatsoever.

I intend to resume writing here more regularly, even if my life continues at this hectic pace.

Happy Friday!  And good-night.
