Dreissig

It is hot.Have I mentioned that recently? I would love nothing more than to leave the city for a bit and go somewhere LESS hot. A cousin of mine mentioned that for his 30th he was planning on heading out to the best place he could think of to celebrate the new decade, with the best person to celebrate with. I am so jealous of his ability to. just. go. I have never been where he said he was going. Someday... someday I will get to visit that place and that person. Her hospitality is legendary.

I would not trade my kids and Will for that freedom.

Monday we will have the first of the 30s in this house. We aren't going to be celebrating or anything exciting. Maybe I'll bake Will a giant chocolate chip cookie, because he really doesn't like cake. We planned on trying to see Harry Potter, but I am sure the theaters will be packed this weekend. Plus, I don't have a babysitter. I suppose we may be able to find someone to watch the girls so we can at least have a nice dinner out. Then hopefully NEXT weekend we can have a nice evening (when my parents can watch the girls, that is the best way, because the girls need some "pampa", and "gamma" time!)

I have a lot I want to say, but I promised the girls that I would let them get in our kiddie pool if they gave me five minutes to myself. When we go outside I will sit at our patio table and do some homework while they splash uncontrollably for probably 20 minutes. Then it will be nearly lunch time, which means ALMOST nap time! WHOO HOO! And after nap time, we are headed out to the library because they have afternoon story time. I am hoping this time that they will be better. Last time Gwennie cried the whole time, because she wanted "gup."

Dreissig- German for 30.. Dang, my German (the dozen or so words I actually know) must be getting rusty. I had to look it up!!

I wish you could come up too!! Though I'd like to point out that yesterday it was 103 in Phoenix, while it was 104 HERE!!!! Holy Hell it's HOT!! ONLY 97 today though, and by this weekend it will be back to the low 80's and we actually cool off at night... Still, it's currently almost 90 IN my house. Good thing it's still 75 in the basement, Alex and I have been hiding down there all day.. And it will be back to the mid 70's next week in time for me to go camping...

Ya know, that cousin forgot to mention it was going to be his Bday.. When exactly is it, so I can make plans??

Oh you have time his b-day is Sept 4th. He just mentioned that his plan at the time we were talking was to visit you. Hmmmm, maybe I can have Gwennie weaned by mine (22 November) and come visit you around then... ah such wishful thinking on my part, not really the getting Gwen weaned part, the actually being able to leave part... sigh.

Someday you'll get up here.. You know, while we'd have such a grand time without them, you could always bring those kids up with you. It is quite kid friendly around here.. Had such a good time when my #1 niece came to visit a few years back..

:( CAT won't be here for his Bday after all. From what he told me, he's planning on leaving the 3rd. He'll be back down there in the desert recovering from his trip for his big day (unless I kidnap him and lock him in the basement)..
