Oh it has just been such a beautiful summer here. It’s perfect with weather warm enough, but not too hot.
Many of you have asked about our dog. His name is Bubba and he is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. (Say that 10 times fast.) Without pictures, I explain to people that he is sort of like a Golden Retriever except smaller and with more red hair. He is about 40 pounds and is 4 years old. He’s a great dog! Lucas loves to say “Bubba” and throw the ball for him.
This is pretty much what it looks like until 11 at night. Minus the sun- but it’s still a heck of a lot of brightness. I think that’s what I was suppose to do today, buy a big sheet of black fabric to put over my wall. You get used to it though- ain’t no thing.
Lucas is getting molars. Which = crankiness. He’s been refusing to take a second afternoon nap, but going to bed at 7 with no problems. Of course, today he did end up taking a morning nap for 2 hours and than another nap in the afternoon for an hour, so I guess I should say it really depends on the day.
Tomorrow, I get to sleep in past 7:30 am and stay in my pajamas for as long as I please and I simply cannot wait. I might celebrate by staying up past 10:30 today, but I can’t say that’s too likely. I do have a project in my garage I’m trying to finish with my husband (organize and clean it) so that might be on the agenda. I was also thinking about watching The Lovely Bones. Has anyone seen it? I read the book.. but movies usually aren’t as good as the book.
Next week I’m in a good friends wedding. I’m a bridesmaid and if I could explain to you what I looked like while wearing my bridesmaid dress and being pregnant, I would. But, the truth is, I really can’t without using foul language and I’d just rather not do that today. I will probably have my picture taken, but the chance of you seeing it on this here blog is slim. Sorry.
We are so ready for football season to start around here. We are spending a ridiculous amount of money on cable just so we can watch football. That is one thing I don’t dig about Alaska- cable and internet prices are insane. At least compared to Oregon- it’s about double what we used to pay. Because we’ll only have it for the few months that football is on, I suppose it won’t be too bad.
I have a post coming.. but we’re thinking about putting Lucas in a Montessori school this winter a couple days a week for various reasons. I’ll get into our decision why and benefits we see to it with a separate post (mostly for social reasons, to have fun and to give me and baby a break for a few hours a day) but it’s expensive (about $300/month. Is that average? Not sure!) so it made me think of it. I think it’d be way worth it though, and obviously much more so than cable TV. I’m really excited about it!
