A whole 'nother month went by? Life is cruelly passing me by.
And not in the "times goes so fast" wretched horrible cliche way that I detest (anyone who has ever said that does not remember being, or has never been, hugely pregnant and sleepy on a Tuesday afternoon at 2 pm with wild little girls to entertain for many many more hours), but as in I Am Drowning in Details and Exhaustion and Not Making Time for Fun Stuff.
Like blogging here and there!
March was wild: it started out with several stranded snow days (no pictures!), a bout of strep throat running through the house, a quick mama getaway to the Canebrake for some "research" for my next article, and then culminated in a much-awaited trip home to Seattle.
Look at all the pictures I took in Seattle:
|Well of course THAT happened|
|Our view from the Westin Bellevue|
Yep, that's a picture of cranes. PVT and I snuck - sneaked? - away to our favoritest hotel in the world, the Bellevue Westin, for a night, and I wanted to show the boys how close the cranes were to our room (the construction in downtown Bellevue is breathtaking). But these are the extent of my pictures. (Alas, our little overnight was cut a bit short when Memere called in the morning telling us that Keane had woken up with a rash, probably measles. But since I am as pro-vax as they come, I suspected it was not measles. It was a reaction to the antibiotic he was taking for strep.)
So here, then, are some pictures of pictures (oh my inexplicable lameness) that my Dad took (thank goodness he goes overboard, else my children's lives might go undocumented for years on end):
|Um...hunting for dog poop|
|Sur la beach|
|The baby...for not too much longer|
|Huge me, 30 weeks|
|Brothers playing basketball|
And now here we are, gearing up for bonkers time: spring, soccer, end of school stuff, recitals, et cetera...oh, and hopefully a baby.
Who seems to be doing fabulously. Although I don't want to take anything for granted. I just can't wait for her to be here, safe and sound.
Here is hoping your spring has sprung beautifully.
And if you want more, here's my latest article on my Facebook pet peeves.
Enjoy. Or ignore!
