It’s hot here.  It’s no Arizona dessert heat or anything but I’m still hot.  We have friends coming to visit early next month so we’re using it to motivate us to do the repairs to my office that we’ve been planning since February.  To me cash is king so when we have repairs to make that can wait, I do wait until we have the cash to pay for them.  This also means that we do a lot ourselves.  Back in February for my birthday we were finally going to paint my office/photo studio white.  My office is a little sun room that sits off the side of the house.  It was at some point a deck I think that was walled in and had a roof put on.  It’s this light blue color that casts a blue hue onto my picture.  While we were getting the paint we saw some flooring on clearance for $0.68 / sq ft.  so we couldn’t pass it up.

How is everyone?  We’re settling back in after our time out in California.  We had a blast and made it back to Oregon for our first Fourth of July here.  We celebrated with a barbecue on Friday and Saturday and fireworks in the cul de sac both nights.  It was great.  The kids had a blast and my littlest monkey got over his fear of the sparkler by the second night.  What did you do to celebrate?

How’s your summer going?  I’m having so much fun so far.  We’ve been out to California to visit family and friends and soak up some sun, and we’ve really enjoyed having no schedule and sleeping in.  The sun doesn’t set until 9:30 here in Oregon and the kids aren’t used to that so they WILL NOT go to sleep until it’s dark.  I keep trying to get them to sleep earlier (so I can get to bed) but they aren’t having it.   We’re still early on in our summer vacation so I’m still loving the no schedule, but come July/August I’ll be begging for school to start to get these crazy monkeys on a schedule.

I am going to see my baby monkey graduate from pre-k tomorrow!!!! I can’t even believe it.  He’s so excited and so am I.  He’s only been at this school for a few months but he’s come so far.  He’s reading and made so many great friends, it’s been the best thing for him.  He’s going to be returning to the same school for kindergarten next year and I can’t wait to see how he just blossoms even more after being there a full year.   [Read more...]
