I’m still here


As much as I’d love to say that my lack of updating is a result of a packed social calendar brimming with parties and events, the truth of the matter is more along the lines of me not being able to drag my sandwich-saturated mass to the computer, and, when I do manage it, I have a hard time gripping the mouse with my mayo-coated fingers.
We are having a lovely time here in California. It hasn’t been unbearably hot. It’s just 88 right now, at 2:20 p.m. And, of course, it cools way down overnight.
We’ve done loads of shopping, been to the beach once, and eaten at Denny’s more times than I care to admit. The three of us went to see “Madagascar” with friends and then, last night, I took Madalyn to a late showing of “Herbie: Fully Loaded” (a.k.a. the Lindsay Lohan Skankfest. Obviously this was not my choice.)
Robert left to head out here yesterday. As of about an hour ago he was in Flagstaff, AZ, which will put him here tonight. We don’t really have many specific plans for while he is here but we will certainly be glad to see him. The kids ask about him every day.
The kids are enjoying themselves. John-Zachary has finally warmed up to Grandma. Up till now he tolerated her, at best, and screamed bloody murder when she touched him, at worst. Finally he has come to the realization that she is not an axe-murderer in disguise and is playing with her and interacting with her by choice. This has enabled me to duck out on various occasions to go to the store, get a bite to eat, get my hair cut, etc. This has made for a happier household, in general.
Thus summarizes our exploits, so far. Now, as promised, here are two of the shots from the kids’ photo session the other day. Not a bad-looking pair, if I do say so.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Your kids are beautiful, and a life of eating sandwiches and blogging sounds quite lovely, very Douglas Adamsian. I hope you are enjoying California, despite the gloom, which has been considerable here at the beach.
