Two women at work had babies in the last two weeks which means I'm working full time now to take up the slack. It also means there are two brand new, beautiful little people in the world. It is not, in fact, all about me : )
With my accelerating schedule and Youngest's summer activities taking him away from home much of the time, I don't feel like I have seen him much lately. He's feeling the lack of connection too. Last night he came up from the neighbor's beach to eat dinner before returning to camp out overnight in the neighbor's yard. As he left for the night he called out, "Thanks for having me over for dinner, Mrs. P!" Hilarious.
Number One Son is in the midst of a summer internship which was sold to him under slightly false claims. It was purported to be a job specifically for a mechanical engineer. It isn't. It is, however, with a demolition company and is a good mix of office work and field work. His excursions are interesting and educational. And he gets to help plan the demolishing of buildings. What boy wouldn't eat that right up?
On weekends he's with the other woman. The girlfriend. The wonderful young woman who brings out the best in him and who we adore. But geez, come home once in awhile?
Hubby and I are old. He had his 46th birthday just after my 41st. We're feeling it. His on-going back problems continue to complicate his life. There will be no more water skiing for him, among other activities that are now lost. Maybe it's for the best that we're running out of kids to do all those activities with anyway.
And Beautiful--she's brimming with pregnancy beauty : ) I can't resist a photo. This is her--6-1/2 months pregnant with Lily--along with the boyfriend, Dan, and his 3-year-old, Little Guy. All seems to be going well.
I have missed you all so much! I'm pleased that some of you are still checking in : )
