Stuff upcoming

I have felt very busy the last several days and consequently haven't set aside much time to blog--not that there has been tons to write about anyway . . . just everyday, boring weekend stuff (vacuuming, laundry, cooking, grass cutting).

Grace and I had an altercation on Sunday at the pool, in which he started acting very badly and I decided to put my parental foot down. It was a bit ugly and the upshot was that I walked her home while she was upset all the way.

Oh yeah, speaking of Grace (and another very good reason why things have been busy). She turned three-years-old on Monday. We had a smallish party for her at Graeter's Ice Cream with some friends. It was a nice affair. I'll try to write something more about it later and I really should give Grace her due. She deserves it.

But, I've also been trying to get ready for the first of our two vacation trips in July. Trip #1 begins this Friday, as we load up the car and drive down to Georgia to visit my family.

It's been far too long since we've all been together in the same place. I am really looking forward to it.

That means, of course, that I need to tie up some loose ends here at work, get some procedures figured out for the days that I am gone, do another two quick loads of laundry to increase our choices, and pack.

We had to go out and buy some new luggage on Monday, as Lynda discovered that one of our pieces broke on her flight back from Texas last week. But we got a good deal on several sizes of suitcases, backpack, etc at Target. I hope the quality lasts for a while, but since we don't travel that much I figure we'll get our money's worth out of it before it collapses.

So, tonight is a small dinner with old friends, then a start on laundry and some packing. I worked hard last night getting all the financial records up-to-date so that I can bank remotely from Georgia with confidence that I know what's what.

But all that is tonight. Today . . . work.
