Yesterday, July 16th, was our 13th anniversary. It is kind of funny that it followed a Friday the 13th which have always been great days for me. A couple of big things happened for us besides lucky number 13.
The phone call came that our munchkin has a spot in preschool, and it is the one that was our first choice. It is very exciting, and yet tear inducing as my baby is growing up. I have a little over a month and a half before he really is a big boy. And now I am thinking of all the things I want to do with him before school starts like the Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Science and Industry (even though they don’t call it that anymore) and the local water park and … I’ sure you get the picture. Maybe when his brothers get back from Ft. Huachuca we can all go together.
The other thing that happened is that the title for the car came in so we now have her free and clear, and I will be able to reduce the insurance cost as well. And this is the first car we ever bought together.
On the crafty side of things, I did make progress on the latest rag doll. I am very happy with how she is turning out. I have planes for some themed ones that speak to the geek in me. And I really do need to go down to the garage and really start looking in those boxes ostensibly marked “Craft” without a hint as to what type. Beyond that, there are the sprinkler heads to repair / switch out and the lavender plants to plant and some research to be done into seed prep and cuttings. I also need to harvest some of those green apples and make apple compote and other things. It just doesn’t feel like there are enough hours in the day.
