back to school

Believe it or not, Andrew is almost 40% done with his first session of summer school. Which means he’s 20% done with all of summer school. And, if I may brag on my sweet, smart husband, he’s acing everything those crazy calculus and physics professors throw at him. I’ll never understand how someone can have a propensity toward that kind of thing, but I’m proud nonetheless.

The “routine” has been completely rearranged for the past two weeks. I’m not one to like a lot of disruption in my schedule, but I’m actually handling this rather nicely, thank you very much. Before, I would get up around 7am, shower and get ready while Andrew fixed me breakfast and packed my lunch. While I was at work, he would take care of laundry, errands, dishes, etc and would start dinner for me by the time I got home. It was NICE. But, all good things must come to an end, and I jumped back into wife mode rather quickly.

Now, I get up at 6:15am in time to throw on some clothes, pour his coffee and drive him to the bus stop for the 6:45 bus. Then I come home and do a little Fly Lady dance before getting ready for work. Andrew takes the bus back to my office around 5:30 and we head home together where we try to stay awake through dinner. It’s much different than being waited on hand and foot, but I like it. I’ve always known that I was hotwired to be a wife/mother so I enjoy having that job back – the wife part, anyway. The mother part isn’t happening anytime soon. Unless you want to feed and clothe our babes?

So, that’s our news. We’re thinking about taking a trip in June (to celebrate for our birthdays) so stay tuned for that. Otherwise, it’s all quiet…

fun in the sun

I am in love with the beach. And with family. So if you combine them all for a week, I'm one happy camper. Rather than take the time to download the many, many pictures, I decided to toss my favorites into a collage. Clever, I know.

The events represented in these pictures include, but are not limited to:
  • Beautiful sunsets
  • Card games
  • Lots and lots of reading
  • Lots and lots of napping
  • Evening walks
  • Fighting crabs (not humans fighting crabs, crabs fighting crabs - over a crab home)
  • Cute toenail polish
  • Fireworks
  • REALLY good food
  • Kites - including one that washed up on shore and Andrew manage to untangle
  • Lots and lots of laughing

It was a great trip - one that I hope will continue for summers to come. Thanks to the Mr. and Mrs. for being wonderful hosts and letting us in on all the fun. We love you guys!

a family getaway

In a few days, we'll see this for a full week...

Jealous? We're spending the week with Andrew's family at a beach house and we are VERY excited. Especially after the constant dreariness we've experienced this week in terms of weather. I have a stack of books and a new bathing suit waiting to get packed up. Oh boy :)
