Bluebonnets '08


Is there a better way to enjoy the bluebonnets? Ahhh...April in Texas. I must say, if we do indeed relocate to somewhere that is not Texas (sigh) I will really miss the bluebonnets.

So, it's the Stanley Cup playoffs. I wont say much more other than I'm glad we have two Tivos.

I'm feeling pretty terrible, pregnancy wise. Some vomiting, all day nausea, etc...and very, very tired. I think it's markedly more difficult at 42 than it was at 39. Some nights I lie in bed and freak out a little, all to myself, about my age and having a newborn all over again. I have not forgotten how hard it is. But you know what? Having a three year old all over again scares me more!

Must go, my current three year old has been at the playground with his dad and grandpa for's 8:41 p.m. and they are just now on their way home. He will be smelly, tired, and so very, very happy. That's the three year old, not his dad.

Day Out With Thomas

Posted by Picasa

Yesterday we took Duncan to the Grapevine Historic Railroad's Day Out With Thomas. We had a great time! The weather was perfect, and in all stages so was our timing, which helps a great deal when on an outing with a three year old. We got to the shuttle bus right on time, got in the line for our train right on time, etc...

We love doing things as a family, and I'm a little nervous about how our great little threesome dynamic will be disrupted this fall. I suppose I better work that out, huh? I do get panic-stricken about not being able to spend all of this one-one-one (or two-on-one) time with Duncan.

Iain's possible promotion still looks very possible. That's a whole other ball of wax.
