Hello! I thought I could start a blog considering the amount of time I spend reading other people's! So, here goes. I'm online daily, so I do plan to write something daily-although, with an 8 month old baby, that may get difficult. She's napping now -Yeah- So, it is in the 90's today here in VA. Sooooooooooooooo hot. It's not only hot, but also humid and muggy and the air quality aint that great, so it's pretty much indoors for us. Although, Gabe and I are taking Maddie swimming this afternoon when the sun has gone down a bit. She loves it and doesn't seem to have any fear associated with the water. This is very good because I don't want her to be afraid of water like I am. Speaking of which, we are getting ready to go on vacation to Idaho! Usually when I tell people we're going to Idaho, they wonder if that's where I'm from, or they just say "Why?!?" Funny. I explain about Claudia's Family's cabin and then Aunt Susan's cabin and then Mom's 50th birthday and the fact that we all live in different places so it's also a reunion of sorts.... That's a lot to say in one breath. So, Gabe and I are excited. I'm excited to have a break from here; not that it's bad, but sometimes I lose track of what day it is and not in a good way. A good way would be, "Oh, I'm so relaxed and having a great time; wonder what day it is?" The way I'm talking is "Is it Monday or Tuesday?" Then I think "Wait, it doesn't really matter. Mad and I will probably be doing the usual-breakfast, play, nap, dress, Target, grocery store, maybe visit Gabe, walk dogs, go for a walk, etc." You get the point. Sometimes my life really is just a bunch of Thursday's strung together (Office Space). Well, hopefully you're not bored yet. Maybe something fantastic will happen this afternoon and I can post again later.
