What's up?

Life - or the business of living it, that is what! We have been so busy... mostly in a good way. We have a new schedule that some of us appreciate more than others of us, since it requires that some of us get up at the crack o dawn. I am working 4 days and trying desperately to be on time in the morning. Some days I am somewhat successful at it. EFP seems to like being up in the morning with both of us. Daycare has been a bit of a struggle though - in true 2 year old fashion EFP decided she would rather NOT have Mommy leave. It isn't that she wants to leave with me... no. She wants me to STAY and PLAY all DAY! I mean she loves her class and all her friends - she just wants her cake and eat it too.. if Mommy would just stay and read her books, and play her games and feed her snacks and give her juice and water (Only Mommy gets the juice water balance just so!). and hugs and kisses all day.

I would too. I really would - but they only have these little chairs see. Anyway - it has already started to be a hectic summer and work is still mostly crazy. I mean I am crazy busy. Otherwise - we are trying to have fun. Working on some projects. trying to stay positive on some fronts. I mean it is fairly easy to get discouraged at times. Friends aren't who you think they are... work is stressful. Even when you are trying to do something nice... Months and Months ago I had arranged to distribute some blankets... and they are only taking them 5 or 6 at a time... so it requires a separate trip every 4 or 5 weeks only to deliver a few blankets. I had hoped to donate the whole lot - but apparently construction has eliminated all the temporary storage available and so my garage is the holding area. I don't mind - but now that the parking area is all messed up it is quite a project. Oh well. At least I get to wash and dry and wrap them each time. Not such a big deal, considering.

Still trying to work out the car thing - oh, yea I got hit. Pretty clear cut accident - I got rear-ended on my way to work about 2 weeks ago. Thank goodness for insurance - hers and mine. It was her fault and thankfully she was nice enough to admit it to her own insurance company - now its just a question of hauling the thing in to be repaired. Of course the important thing is no one was hurt and it was after I had dropped EFP off at her center.

EFP is growing by leaps and bounds. She is 33" and 29lbs. Last Saturday I took her for her first 'official' haircut.. she is a girly-girl all right! Nails AND hair all in one day. She had her first Popsicle a few weeks ago - and that was fun! She is liberal with the kisses and hugs and says "Love You" all the time... she is still the silly funny baby who cracks me up... she says funny stuff all the time... she is counting up a storm... and she really understands what it means. I thought she was just repeating but I tried her out and sure enough she can honestly count! IN English and Spanish and Sign! She is so amazing... everyday is the best day with her.

Hi Friend!
I am so sorry you got hit! Are YOU okay? Thank goodness EFP wasn't in the car with you! Cars can be fixed/replaced, not people!

Summer is crazy for us too. July is completely booked and we are heading off to MA/Maine on 7/21.

Any chance you heading out to NP NJ soon to visit the relatives?

Hopefully if we can't connect this summer, we can come out to LI for the festival we went to last year. I want to make some annual events to keep the connection! :)

I really wish we lived closer to you!

Give EFP a hug and kiss from me and Kelsey!
Hugs to you and Greg!

Cute as ever!!!! Sorry to hear you got hit. Insurance is such a hassle. Hope things get straightened out too.

I have been on vacation and go back next week part time for the summer. So nice. Alyssa will be having surgery on her eyes next week, but maybe in a couple of weeks we can get together. I am off on Fridays.

Talk to you soon,
