Between emails and facebook and skype, by the time I get to this, I have no idea what I’ve said and haven’t said. But I’ll just try to make note of the salient points of the day…for posterity’s sake? And I’ll try to do it at not 10:30 as my primary goal is hurry up and sleep at this point.
Mumsy left today. That was hard, it made this all very real. And looking at a calendar was bad. We’ve still 4 weeks to go, less a day. Right now, that day doesn’t make enough of a difference.
I hate neighborhood cats and I hate the ice cream truck. Just sayin’.
I was trying to explain to Doodle that it’s okay to be sad when we got home from the airport, telling that I was sad, too because Grammie is my Mummy and I miss her when she’s not here and how when we’re sad it’s nice to get hugs and cuddles from people around us who love us so we can feel better. He turned around and said, “Can I give you a cuddle, Mummy? Does that make you feel better?”. And then he let me give him a cuddle, too. I am happy he was able to take comfort this time.
ZuZu is fearless. Did not matter how many times she slipped in the bath or took great mouthfuls of water, she still kept trying to crawl up the back of the tub and kept a big cheesy grin through it all. Good grief! What are we going to do once she’s running?
I am really looking forward to Blenheim Palace tomorrow. I wanted to do this last year but I was in a wheelchair and I think I wasn’t sure how your parents would do. Once the kids are older, I’ll want to do something more Christ centered but this year won’t really have any meaning either way, it’ll just be a fun day out. I even got some extra eggs and a decorating kit for Doodle since he seems to be enjoying art and projects these days.
But I must get some sleep tonight. More than mead.
