Excuses, Excuses...

For many reasons, lately, I haven't been able to keep up my blog the way I'd like. Then again, that's been the case ever since we came back from "The Room," which was 18ish months ago. So you'd think I would just accept my inability to keep up, but I don't! I can't!

Moving on to my latest excuses, um, reasons for not taking time to blog, no, make that REASON because there's only one:

Koji's out of school. Somehow, this long expected event known as summer vacation has taken me completely off guard, and I can't get used to it. He's been out for two weeks and I'm just now starting to think that maybe perhaps it's not a tragedy. It's possible that we might even have fun and enjoy our extra time together. For example, we've been in the backyard a lot over the last several days, playing on the swingset and picking sour cherries. We even made a cherry pie!

But, anticipating meeting our little friend Olivia during our upcoming trip to LA, there were also a few hours that I stuck Koji in front of Wii and had a date with my sewing machine. I was pleasantly surprised to find that though I had to dust my machine off, I hadn't totally lost my touch for putting clothes together. Phew! It was great fun to be sewing again, and I have a feeling I'll be doing it again soon, considering Aogu's reaction when I showed him this finished product: "Maybe next time you can make something for Izumi?"

P.S. Happy Happy Birthday to a friend of my youth (ha! shows how old I am, that uni friends are now "friends of my youth," as if my youth is over, which I don't want it to be but it probably is since she's 35 now and I'm hot on her heels) who has many distinguishing and exceptional qualities, and is 1/3 of Lawn Club. I am so pleased that I will be able to celebrate in person with her soon!

thanks for the tanjyoubi shout-out!
if we're "friends of youth" it's because we're still friends and still fully youthful!
