We’re Baaack…


Still there?

Thanks to all who called and emailed to make sure that we are still alive and kickin’ over here. We definitely are – but just had to take a little hiatus for a few days to get everything under control. We’re close, soooo close.

So to get everyone up to speed, this soccer mom thing is kicking my butt. Apparently I cannot say “no” to anything, and apparently anyone who is the head of a committee has figured out that I cannot say “no,” therefore…I have been “volunteered” for just about everything. And between two different schools, ballet, soccer our calendar is always in flux and always crammed. And I’m tired.

Also our sitter had to leave the country to get her visa renewed, and did not return as of yet. So I have been interviewing sitters. Not a very fun job, but I think we have found a really good girl, and she starts next week. Just in time since I have several projects in motion and two more on the way.

Let’s see. Debby and Bill have been here since Friday, I think they are having a good time – I know the girls are loving having them here. They allowed Jamie and I to get away for a night last weekend so we headed to SF.

While we were there we did a potentially incredibly irresponsible thing as parents – we went on a Great White shark dive. I’m downloading the pics right now, and will fill you all in on the details perhaps tomorrow. (You’ve waited this long, surely you can wait one more day?)

Oh, yeah…and also?

Debby and Bill decided to tie the knot while out here in California. So we threw a wedding together and they got married, barefoot on a beach in Malibu this afternoon! It was pretty exciting – and more on that later, too!

Right now, I’m heading upstairs – very tired. I can’t really type or talk in complete sentences, so I’ll leave you with a photo of the girls and Nena frolicking in the surf after the ceremony today to tide you over. I promise I won’t let this photo be the only thing up to look at for a week.

Toes in the surf

Congrats Bill & Debby! We love you and wish you a very long, happy life together!

    Oh, I’ll stop complaining that things are insane at my house now.

    I am exhausted for you. Hope you get some rest this weekend.

    I am so glad you have surfaced! I totally understand “the can’t say no” issues! Talk about the sharks circling! They have me pegged too.

    I can’t wait to see pictures!

    Yes, I’m exhausted just reading all you have been doing. Sounds like a lot of fun, though!! Wow, a shark dive! That sounds awesome. 🙂

    Now, repeat after me…no, No, NO, NOOOOOOOO! 😀

    You really have to be strong on the “no” issue. It will always be you that they come to because you’ve already given them that message. It’s not fair that it’s always us that takes the reins every every every time. Did I say every time? When is the holiday break? I hear ya. And what a way to relax and let go of some stress, a shark dive! Now that wasn’t stressful.

    Sorry to hear about you sitter having to fix her visa. Interviewing people is a very trying thing. I had to do that earlier this year when I moved W.W. from one in home day care to another. It’s tiring work trying to figure out if your kid and that person will actually get along. Good luck!

    Great picture though. I love the sunshine coming through their adorable outfits. 🙂

    Welcome back!!! Good gosh, you really have had a lot going on. “we threw together a wedding” like it’s no big deal, wow! I hope you’re feeling a bit more on top of things now. I have missed you, but figured it’s just life getting ahead of you – same has been going on over here, too. I love the pic, and can’t wait to see/hear about the sharks! (eeek!)

    Wow! Congratulations, Debby! (I don’t know Bill, but congrats to him, too…he got a good one).

    We’ve missed you, Care. Glad to have you back!

    I must say I’m glad you’re back…I figured things were busy…but had no idea just how busy! Can’t wait to hear more of the details of all the super fun stuff.

    How cool! I’m headed to your other posts to see the wedding photos!! That’s awesome! And it’s okay to say no! I have that problem too!

    Oh my oh my. That is so beautiful. The filmy fabric, the sea, the silhouettes… *sigh*
