In the last two weeks the following things have happened in no particular order.
Troy and I celebrated Neighbor Mo’s fifth birthday at Chuck E. Cheese. Her parents, The Neighbors, bribed me with beer.
Caroline and I spotted a blue eyed, curly haired red headed girl and decided if we were able to mate, she’d be our love child.
We had the honeymooners over last weekend. We've only seen them once since their Outer Banks beach wedding last May.
There was some beer being brewed and "lake tea" being fixed as they say around here. Lake Tea is a 50/50 mixture of tea infused vodka and lemonade.
We dined on beef stroganoff with homemade noodles from my mother-in-law.
A very typical picture of Tim and me in our kitchen.
Troy started swim lessons again twice a week. I sit on the uncomfortable bench and watch from the other side of the glass with the other parents. It’s a great time to get caught up on my Words with Friends games.
Tim has started taking online classes for his master’s degree from Virginia Tech. It’s going to be a long three years for him and the dynamics in the house.
Commandeering every blanket and pillow in the house creates the best fort allowed if you’re a 5-year old. If you look closely you can spot the side of his head under the coffee table.
The dogs continue their training of *not* sitting in the kitchen.
After a three year hiatus, I visited the OB/GYN. My regular doctor who looked like a real Barbie and delivered Troy left the practice three years ago to be a stay at home mom. Since I didn’t want to wait three more years for a female doctor, I agreed to see the new man who had joined the practice.
After waiting in the exam room for over 30 minutes in a toilet paper vest with matching blanket over my lap (and discussing this on Twitter) he came into my room and apologized for keeping me waiting.
We were approximately the same age and unlike my pale, freckled face, he has darker skin and hair.
The next thing he said, “I really like your hair.”
This caused me to instantly blush.
Then he continues with the exam of my lady parts.
I didn’t blush at all.
Afterwards, he said, “Everything looks great. You’re easy.”
Of course I am.
