Back In Slow Motion

Yes, yes I'm back. Yes, yes it's been a few days. I've just been staring at a blank page, wondering if I should indeed continue. Too many little things to recall, and you know what they say about habits, they're easy to break (well the good ones anyway, and yes blogging is a good habit for me).

I was in Oregon for part of this last week at a family reunion, it was so much fun visiting, being chilly, meeting family I have not yet met (though I have known my in-laws for over 10 years), wearing long pants, late nights, sleeping with a blanket, leisurely mornings, getting goose bumps, oh and being cold did I mention that?

Providence was positively enamored with Ray, (my brother-in-laws soon to be wife, he proposed at the reunion). On a walk they collected items together to make into a wand, so on the return and after a glue run, pokey (the stick) was then decorated. Providence also spent a good deal of time singing and loving on her cousin, who's in utero by the way, Ray was very obliging to let her. And though I did less petting and stroking then Providence I am no less excited to meet my new little supposed niece, but when am I going to get a nephew already?

We had a lovely time at the beach, and I realized once again how terribly sad was my lack of beach going when I lived 10 minutes from one both in California and Hawaii. I had a small little pity-regret party for myself and then proceeded to enjoy the rest of the time there. Besides it's my own fault of not appreciating something till it was no more, and if I thought about it seriously I would not be spending all waking hours at the beach even if I were to go back now. In fact I am probably a perfect beach vacationer and will go more when I don't live near one, or very nearly the same amount, pregnancy aside (because when I was pregnant I did go often).

Providence went on quest to find a mermaid and surprisingly came back without having seen even the tail of one swimming away. Well you can imagine her broken heart and broke down into sobs of anguish for not having met one. She was comforted with the idea of being a mermaid herself and I was able to get of video of the mermaid swimming.




In other news: Since we've been home last few days Providence has been telling me that she always obeys, even right after being disciplined for disobeying. It's a great endeavor but I won't be holding my breath.

One of our fish died this morning,and I have yet to give it a proper burial (think toilet).

I just discovered that my friend is arriving at the airport at 3:30 today, the 3:30 that is not 5:30 which is what I have been preparing for, whoops. But hurray too!

umm, the car needs to be cleaned out...
I need to get food in this house...
Take dog for walk...
I suppose I should start by taking leave of the computer.

I miss the beach too. It is funny though, I only ever drove past it, hardly ever going out on it. I think I miss it just being there. A thing of comfort.
I am happy you had a good time with family.
My mom and dad will be here in a few weeks.

Have fun with your friend. I wish I could have fun with you all too. Well this is what distance does... I still think SV and Nampa should be 5 minutes from each other!
