View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
Iím so excited. Iím 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 Ė Will will enjoy the water park so very much.
Iím thinking about having a birthday party for Willís 3rd birthday. We didnít have one for his first or second other than a family celebration, and Iíd 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 doesnít enjoy thinking about and wouldnít do unless I initiate the idea. And thatís okay, since Iím learning that I can ďinsistĒ on them without the sky falling. But, still Ė I donít like seeing him stress. Heís 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 Ė 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 isnít quite enough for me. After all, I ďjustĒ 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.
