Ambrosia has been coming over to work on my newsletter, and her visits aren’t complete without her entourage. That’s her boyfriend, Idris, and their adorable baby who I’ve featured before, and yes, they’re gracing my disastrous house with their awesomeness.
Seriously–the. best. baby. ever.
And Idris is very kind to listen to me and Ambrosia speak in code all day and make himself and the squishy little bean comfy. (I love this kid–I treat myself to about fifteen minutes of baby holding a day, because mostly we’re working and making hay while she’s here, but… BABY!!!)
I look forward to showing more of that baby. Is all I’m saying.
And Friday was… well, a dead sprint.
Chicken wanted my help dyeing her hair. Berry Jello wanted to go to Michael’s and do some shopping for a soap party she had this morning. I needed to go grocery shopping before picking up ZoomBoy and then going back again to pick Squish up from the bus that brought her home from science camp.
And then we needed a babysitter so Mate could drive me downtown for dinner with the Sacramento Writer’s Group and a reading at the Lavender Library.
Would you believe we did ALL THE FRICKIN’ THINGS? Damn. Just… damn.
Anyway, Squish is home (can you see her super speshul sweater we got from Michael’s? The eye slight up!) The kids and I spent yesterday cleaning up the house while Mate and Big T went to help Mate’s mom move. And today was the soap making party (we made bath bombs! They’re so easy! And so cool! And I want to make more and more and more!) as well as a King’s Game. Squish and I made soap and Mate and ZoomBoy went to the game.
And then we all went out for Big T’s birthday!
Like, barely time to write, zoom.
Like, where did those days go? zoom.
Like… damn. I need a nap to recover from my weekend, zoom.
But Pierce and Hal are coming–I promise. *yawn* After I recover from the zoom.
