...but I will post pictures. Soon. Soonish. I will.
Just to get caught up - because so much has been happening! Naphtali, Aidan and Proton came last Friday night. Naphtali left Sunday. Aidan left Wednesday. Proton will be here another week, yet! He and Charlie are getting along famously. The three of us have settled into a reasonable daytime routine. It is nap time for the boys and I would normally be doing homework but the day is lovely, I'm easily distracted, this had to be done...
My mother drove down for lunch on Sunday. Tim took us on a tour of Kennybrook. I'm glad I waited to see it now rather than during construction. And I'm glad I got to see it before people actually moved in because good manners would have prevented all the gawking and gushing it elicited, had it been someone's home, rather than an empty building. It is beautiful - calling to mind the country inn featured in White Christmas.
Most of the boxes are empty. I have those last few left. The ones that have consolidated the leftovers from other boxes. The ones that require thinking and sorting. Somethings were obviously meant for this place or that task and so were easy to assign a spot in the house. Other things are not so obvious or necessary and so I need to think about them, make an active decision about their fate. But it's looking like home. Feeling like home. Menards is thinking of giving us our own parking spot. I will post a picture. Soon. Soonish. I will.
My class this semester is cataloging. Very detail oriented. Definitions. Acronyms. Dates. Reading, reading, reading. It keeps me busy.
This rarely happens but I believed the hype and bought a box of Fiber One cereal. It's awful. I have a batch soaking to bake apple muffins. Love these cool mornings.
I've signed on at a gym. I am there every day. They have an array of cardio and strengthening machines which I use on alternating days. Cardio every day. And the pool generally every day, also. It feels sooo good after a workout - there is a water aerobics class 2x weekly and I've enjoyed that as well. Of course, this means that I am also changing clothes (extra laundry!) and showering a lot. And as I am already challenged by summer grooming, of course, I find myself shaving my legs a lot! Walk Charlie in the morning. Shower and change for the gym. Workout, change for the pool. Shower and dress to come home. It's 15 minutes away, very reasonably priced. Lovely facility (which is why I have to be clean-smelling when I arrive) inhabited by people 55 and older. They do make the occasional exception for slightly younger folk to join the health club. Lucky me. During the initial interview/orientation they ask general questions about your level of health and activity, and replacements: hip, knees, shoulders...
I will post a picture. Soon. Soonish. I will.
