Here I am, almost 11 months since my last post on this blog!
Last week Arthur went off to Boy Scout Camp for an entire week, this time without me. Stephanie and Fiona and I went to camp on Wednesday evening of that week for the Parent’s Night Dinner back at his troop’s campsite; the tenderest roast beef I’ve ever eaten, plus potatoes, corn on the cob and Dutch oven cake baked on hot coals! He was pretty stinky when he got back on Saturday, but despite rain and heat and mosquitos, he had a great time. He learned a bunch of neat stuff, plus he got an Archery Merit Badge and the Polar Bear Swim patch!
I’ve started a new job at Lifespan of Greater Rochester in the beginning of June, after 4 1/2 years of being home with the kids. I love the job and the people I work with. The kids are in Day Care more often (especially for the summer) but they seem to enjoy it. And I’m only working Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with one Thursday afternoon a month. It’s a perfect schedule, and it’s quite nice spending more time in the world of adults!
Wow, and Fiona started going to school last September and totally loves it! She’s doing very well and was sad when vacation started. And Stephanie just bought an almost new (2012) Chevy Cruze last week that is beautiful and has a six-speed stick shift. We are all sad to say good-bye to her trusty 1999 Toyota Solaris. It needed the rear suspension replaced, but after 237,000 miles it’s still a hell-of-a-nice car!
Besides that, I have nothing more to say at this late hour of the night. But I hope to be back soon when I really have something monumental to express! Or just the latest movie review, or whatever flight of thought strikes my fancy.
