The sun has finally come out, so we have been at the beach as much as we can. If not the beach, then the park or some other sunny location.
I have been working on a few more embroidery projects, inspired by some new craft books I picked up, which I will share with you soon. I took a little break this weekend when I tried to be epic mama and wife. Ryan had his wisdom teeth removed–all four of them on Friday. I had a great plan, which involved running myself ragged on Thursday getting the house cleaned and dinners prepared for four days so there would not be much housework to be done and I could focus on taking care of the boys. Uly woke up Friday morning with a fever of 104 and very fussy and clingy and the surgery ran over an hour long, which meant I did not get a “nap” break on Friday and made a slew of a mess preparing a variety of foods all of which the child would not eat. Repeat Saturday and Sunday, only Sunday Ulysses would not nap and for whatever reason I find this the most stressful thing I have ever encountered. We were all quite a state last night. I only feel slightly recovered today, but the sun and warmth outside sure help. I think I might lie down for a minute too. What are you up to this summer?
