I'm tired. It's been a long week, work-wise, although when I think back on it, all I see are the boys. I do love my ability to push my job out of my mind as soon as the computer turns off. This weekend I need to get a little extra sleep. No idea how I plan to accomplish this, but there it is.
I'm continuing to love my favorite month. The trees are starting to turn, and the big boy delights in seeing the orange and red and yellow leaves. "Look Mom! The leaves are falling! That means it must be Fall, right?" This weekend will be another one at home. Lots of swinging. A stop by the farmer's market. The usual. My sister-in-law is planning to visit on Sunday, which is always fun for the boys (and us too!). The weather continues to be spectacular.
Things remain unsettled at home, with a decision yet to be made. I'm looking forward to it being behind us - either way - so we can focus on the future. When I think about the coming years, I start getting really excited. Lots of milestones and happy events - big wedding anniversaries (we just celebrated our 8th), the big boy starting school, house renovations, family trips...
Speaking of family vacations, I think perhaps we got a little too ambitious in deciding on Croatia for next summer's vacation. Our research is telling us that it might not be the best place to go with little kids. (Three kids between 2 and 4 years old.) We haven't ruled it out, but we're now expanding our search. Do any of you have suggestions on a little-kid-friendly spot in Europe? We will want to rent a house/villa large enough to accommodate two families. We'll be traveling from Boston, and my sister's family will be joining us from Barcelona. I am starting to get a bit overwhelmed by all the possibilities now.
And I'm not sure I ever told you, but I really like you. My readers. I know most of you are family, and of course I love you. But there are a few other blog friends out there who are reading my little site, and I love thinking about who you are, where you live, and why you decided to stop by today. Fun to think about. Whoever and wherever you are, thanks. It's more fun to blog when you know somebody else is out there. Have an awesome weekend!
