And weeeeeeee are baaaaaaaack!
A great big selfie to start that off. Keeping myself in the picture and all.
I’ve been something of a single parent recently. Mikey has got to focus on Myrtle right now – Myrtle being the name we chose our truck. Myrtle the Turtle. She Who Will Carry Us Far. She Who Will Carry Us Far Really, Really, REALLY soon.
You guys, the countdown is officially ON. We’re giving notice TODAY. Come one month, that Myrtle there is going to be home for quite a while.
A lot of of my nerves are frayed up, worn out and hypercharged. I’m sure you understand, it’d probably be the same for you if you were in my shoes. Only you are not, because you probably have more sense than I do. No, “hey honey, how about we head on down to Argentina OVERLAND?‘
Back to what I was saying about practically being a single parent these days.
Well, I’m not, not really and my heart belongs to each and every single parent out there because man, that shit is HARD.
3 kids beat me any day, every day.
But in between pulverizing me to a quivering wreck of mamaflesh, we’ve been having a lot of fun
Playing hard and long outside, with friends we see waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too seldom.
I don’t know what it is about kids and painting that just thrills me.
Oh maybe… that it’s kids and painting?!
Ha – or maybe it’s just them getting all grubby. For some reason that makes me feel more successful as a mother.
Mack is walking with support now – and Moxie is thrilled with playing ANYTHING that is related to catching and throwing a ball. That’s where they are. Micah is doing crossword puzzles and getting pissed off when people don’t want to be his minions. We’d better watch out, world.
I am hoping things will get normal on this here blog soon – like, I’ll get back to posting my Cool Cat series on Saturdays and things like that. But I suppose like everything else in life, it all evens out in the end, right?
It’s all good.
one of my all time favorite pictures. Story behind it: Micah was sitting there, Moxie went on out to sit with him. Mack came up from behind, Moxie noticed, grabbed him, put her arm around him and pulled him forward
…just stopping to eat the flowers….
