View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day

I’m so excited. I’m taking Will (just the two of us) to Wisconsin Dells tomorrow to meet up with a very dear girlfriend of mine from college and her two boys.

After airline travel (and travel with Steve and Ellen), this feels very low key. Its in a car, on our own schedule, and with a semi-reasonable and semi-independent human being. Piece-o-cake. And – Will will enjoy the water park so very much.

I’m thinking about having a birthday party for Will’s 3rd birthday. We didn’t have one for his first or second other than a family celebration, and I’d like him to have the fun of a party. I need to discuss it in detail with Steve because these are the types of events that Steve just doesn’t enjoy thinking about and wouldn’t do unless I initiate the idea. And that’s okay, since I’m learning that I can “insist” on them without the sky falling. But, still – I don’t like seeing him stress. He’s my darling.

Other than that, not much is flying through my head right now, which feels strange.

Its beginning to be fall here in MN – the loveliest time of year here in my opinion. Sweaters and cool days and red and golden leaves, but no snow. Pumpkins and warms houses.

I can sense some restless in me setting in again. I wonder if a once-a-year personal getaway isn’t quite enough for me. After all, I “just” got back from my personal vacation in August. I need to see if there is a time in the next several months that I could steal a day or two away for. Hmm.

Ellen, after 8 months and 25 days of baldness, in the last week or two has grown this gorgeous strawberry blond hair to about a 1/3 of an inch. I CANNOT keep my hands or lips off of her head. Its so silky.

I'm picturing you and Will driving down sun-dappled roads with leaves blowing in your wake. You're having GREAT conversations with Monkey, until he pops off to sleep. Have a great weekend, Lynnie! :kiss: SF - San Francisco - yeah, don't I just wish! :laugh5:
