Fully in life’s rhythms now. I can’t think of another period of my adult life where I’ve been in such a looonnngggg stand of just doing normal things. Going to the office and coming home at the same times. I have a morning routine, an evening routine, and a firmly established weekend routine. It won’t last much longer… so I’m soaking up the final few weeks. (The travel part of my year kicks back in soon.)
Today, we’re going to take Stoney to the beach so he can run, play, and swim. Low tide is in a couple of hours and we totally look forward to playing with him the tide pools. Each time the kids claim they don’t want to go and they won’t have fun… then we have to drag them home. After that we’re meeting my mom at the nut farm. No really, we’re meeting her at Bates Nut Farm near Escondido. Let the nut jokes and innuendo begin. When we told Paul (5) where we were going he whispered to Megan (8), “When we get there I can say, ‘Oh my nuts.”
Later tonight, we may be getting a houseguest for one night. More on that later.
Right now, I am just chilling out and listening to music. Here are the next 10 tunes streaming from my iPod to my brain. I’m sharing them with you since we’re such great web-friends. As always, these are completely random and my ratings are included.
