This poor little blog! It’s like my houseplants: thriving every so often, but mostly shriveled from neglect. “Oh! I forgot to water you!” I say in horror every few weeks. Or in this case, “Oh! I forgot to write!”
Only, I didn’t forget to write. We’ve been busy and recharging and hiding. Last week, Nathan, Anne, and Molly went to church camp at Hume Lake. Here are the nearly 200 kids that Real Life took. My three are in there somewhere. Feel free to hunt for them. They’re the good-looking ones.
While they were gone, Andy and I had a FAN-TAB-U-LOUS week away and ALONE. We stayed in a friend’s condo near a very large body of water, and we ate some extraordinary Mexican food. It was lovely, but not long enough, I think, because my introvert battery isn’t completely recharged yet.
Notice what similar skin tones we have. Clearly I was made for the beach!
Andy left his phone and email off all week (!), and I even avoided facebook. Which reminds me, I find facebook much more enjoyable now that I’ve hidden a few friends. The news feed, it turns out, is a pleasure to read when it’s minus a status or seven.
Did I mention my introvert battery may need a longer vacation than it got?
Anyway, even Belle the basset hound took a vacation, at my friend’s house. Here she is, helping with a barbecue.
Good girl, Belle.
What else to say? Tomorrow, Nathan turns into a (sob!) teenager. He will finally get his own facebook page, to hide his own friends. And in less than a week, Molly turns ten.
Who knows? Maybe I’ll water the blog again before she turns eleven.
