It's 9:30 on a Friday night and Slice is still at work, so my house is quiet except for the 4-year-old's intermittent hallway trips, the dripping bathtub faucet, and the screaming kids in the neighboring circle. We were planning on making a trip to Cedar City this weekend but plans changed when we all got sick. It's an achy, feverish sickness that I am sincerely hoping to be rid of by tomorrow.
Baby Lucky turned six months old this week, and I turned 27! What a day. I got a little irritated when someone at church said, "in a few more years you'll be lying about your age!" because, when did this society decide it was unacceptable for women to age? And WHY are women still buying into the stupid notion?? I hope I never lie about my age, and I wish others would stop doing the "I'm still 29" thing. It makes me disgruntled.
(But of course I find something to be disgruntled about!)
Life goes on.
My kids get a little educational experience from Ms. Frizzle,
Lucky misses naps sometimes, but we love her anyway,
We have yard sales that take weeks to prepare and execute (and then get rained out),
And the children bathe all together for the first time. Rub a dub dub.
This summer came and went much too quickly for my liking, as usual. I never get enough s'mores or firework shows or pool days or boating trips, especially with these little ones who make it very difficult.
(Not to mention Slice, who usually crashes when he walks in the door.)
We had one big trip to Bear Lake for a reunion - blog post coming - and that's it. We haven't left the Basin for anything else in months.
So .... that's my life right now.
