That’s how it feels to me sometimes when I realise that all my scheduled posts have run out, and my drafts folder is looking a bit emaciated. We run this blog mainly to stay in contact with family and friends back home in New Zealand to share what we’ve been up to, what we’re thinking about and stuff we like. Well, it turns out that sometimes our lives are just not quite exciting enough to warrant 3 blog posts a week! (How did I ever manage 5 posts a week?!) So, here’s a bit of a random one.
Here are a few tid-bits of information:
Esther is not interested in walking. Occasionally she’ll stand for a few seconds, but that’s about it.
I just ate some delicious Lindt chocolate that I got for Valentine’s day from a man who is not my husband. Okay, if you have to know, it was from the guy in his 50’s who lives in the apartment above us.
The weather is warming up. This is not necesarily reflected by actual temperatures but because I believe it is. It is March now, after all. If I just believe hard enough, it will happen eventually! :-)
Marica is growing up too fast. She enjoys learning, being read to, watching DVDs and spinning herself round and round for ages. I tried it the other afternoon and after about 30 seconds I fell down on the floor. I felt sick for the rest of the afternoon.
Colds are working their way through our house again. I’m the only one still standing. I guess it will come knock me over one of these days. I faithfully take my vitamin C in preparation.
My parents have tickets to come visit us in October! I’m SO excited!
Other visitors we’re excited about having soon: Hannah and Eva in March, Dad Hoyt in April, an old friend from primary school briefly in September. A certain prospective in-law has promised his appearance sometime in the near future too. :-)
We’re thinking of going camping in New England in the summer for a week or so. Anyone know some good spots?
And because a blog post is just so dreary without a photo, I’ll post you a pic of me and my friend Anna Banana from Indiana whom we met at a playground last summer, who has unfortunately moved back to Indiana now. We’ll miss her a lot.
Anna, her sister and her mum came past our place to say goodbye. If you’ve sent us a card, can you spot yours in the background?
