I have a love/hate relationship with technology. I'm thankful my boys grew up without it...or more importantly, that they grew up without a mom who had a cell phone in her hand 24/7...but I sure do enjoy it now.
Can't get the answers you want via text message? FaceTime is the next best thing, especially if they happen to be in a different state.
My oldest? He makes me laugh. FYI...Santa's pockets aren't that deep, Matteo.
But good try.
Seriously...is there ANYTHING better than a tomato, picked warm from the afternoon sun right off the vine? Drizzle it with a little olive oil and all is well in the world.
Can we bottle that?
We had our nephew here for some boy time (he has 3 sisters) and boy time is what he got. Basketball with Brian, weight lifting with Alex, a late night ice cream run in a convertible. Fun to spoil (and bend the bedtime rules) with someone else's child.
The weather has been so strange here...that guy that I like so much keeps saying it's tornado weather; however, we no longer live in tornado country. It's just...weird. Last night we were eating supper in the garden and it started to sprinkle...just a few big, warm raindrops before the sky turned a vibrant pink.
It's been beautiful. Humid and a bit gray during the day...but beautiful.
It's Friday...and it feels like Friday. For the first time in a while I woke up to my alarm...had to print boarding passes early this morning. Gotta love Southwest Airlines (and I really do) and their 'no assigned seats' policy but hey, they don't charge for checked bags. We're heading out tomorrow for a family adventure...a family of FIVE adventure. It's been a long, long time and while it'll be short, we're packing a lot of fun stuff into this getaway.
I'm SO excited, but as the only girl I'll need a spa day when it's done.
