Posting continues to be light as we adjust to being a family of four people and one Pinot.
My parents and sister were kind to decorate the tree with non-breakable ornaments while I was in the throes of labor.
Life with two under two being what it is, I don’t think I noticed they’d done all that work until I’d been home for five days. Slowly, we’ve had to remove ornaments until we’re up to the high water mark we’re at today. The toddler just gets so intensely focused on one, and can’t help herself until it’s in her hands for complete destructr–er– exploration.
We also were struck down with a virus this weekend, causing the newborn to have a runny nose. That’s a sad sound there, the congested 12 day old infant. Oh, to be thrust into this world from that comfortable uterus, I sympathize.
One of the fun things to do with that lasagna meat sauce from last week is to add a little water and use it for a meaty pasta sauce. That’s exactly what we had for lunch on Sunday.
The Wine Sisterhood sent along a few wines that were fun to share and I got out of the house.
I’ve been on what feels like house arrest the last few months and it was so nice to see some friends.
That’s an understatement.
I HAD to see friends or I would have gone more mad.
If I hadn’t seen those ladies, I may have imploded.
Jordan and Evany and Mai and Leah and my gal Maggeh and new friends and all of it is thanks to a video gaming system that’s improving my marriage.
(Seriously, bowling dates with my husband instead of zoning out over old episodes of Lost?
