I woke up today at 6:30am, but wasn't ready to get up. So I lazed around listened to my boys sleep. It's funny how noisy boys are even in there sleep. I knew when I did get up I was gonna be paying for my night of fun at the shell. I suppose I'm gonna really have to evaulate my choices a bit better and definitely not overdo it. I have always been the type that will go, go, go, until the very last minute and then fall out in the bed, sleep like a baby, and get up raring to go again the next am. I remember doing that with Gus in NYC. We'd get up and be out the door of the hotel by 9am, and not get back to the room until 10 or 11 at night. We just didn't want to miss a thing! He's always been a pretty good trooper like that, although lately I'm sensing some of his preteen self-preservation mode kicking in. But given the right opportunity, like another big city adventure, I'm sure he'd rally, after all he is my boy!
Today, Gus and I did go get a coffee drink at Books-a-million, I bought him a crazy clear glass green apple 3D puzzle. I remembered doing those when I was probably 13 or 14. He's busy working it right now. Hopper has already decided that it must also be his, Bubba, will have to realize that high tables are great things if he hopes to keep all the pieces.
Butch made some really great burgers and there's cheescake awaiting when I want it.
Got to speak with my sister-in-law Casey, about what to bring when traveling with a bitty baby. Grady is only 5 and a half months old, but if he's anything like my Harmon babies, he'll be a fine little traveler. Traveling is something the Harmon's do well! I am really looking forward to seeing them all. They arrive Tuesday evening.
My frien Paula is stopping through on her way out West tomorrow. I'm very happy I convinced her to stay at the house with us. It will be good to hear her stories for her family reunion, Jamie and I have decided that Paula is one of the best storytellers we know, both visually through her pictures, but also thru her tales, she's got perfect timing when it comes to stories. Maybe it's ust us, but sometimes she say something, and all we have to do is just look at her face, and we get the "entire" story without one more word! Love that.
Gonna rest for a while.
