I spend all my time posting snippets in livejournal, neglecting this good ol’ domain.
LJ is just so easy….I dunno. If I could get LJ to post over here, all would be perfect.
I am sitting here eating some whole wheat pasta while Derek naps and the laundry spins. It’s a nice Thursday; we took a walk this morning with some other Moms. My friend Mystarion and his wife Ivy are coming to town as it is my birthday tomorrow. Mystarion is very allergic to cats, so they don’t stay with us, but it may be a challenge with Derek, we hang out at home so much now as a result…I don’t want Mystarion miserable in my house. I have to look up when they are arriving tomorrow.
Sax left, he was visiting! Do you longtimers remember Sax? The New Zealand fling? 13 years later he finally showed up to say hi. He made a special trip to Oregon while he was in the United States and we hung out at the Doug Fir Lounge, and my house the next day, before I took him to the airport. It was wonderful to connect again.
Derek is getting teeth like crazy, and is almost 11 months old. He is such a sweet boy. He calls everything “DADA” right now. He speaks long strings of consonants and syllables in his own language. He crawls, stands up, cruises around. He’s a bundle of trouble and joy all at once.
Hopefully it won’t be another month or two before another update. Maybe I should schedule it so I know I do it at least weekly, huh? For all 3 of you left to read?
