I'm currently fighting off a cough.  I thought it was just allergies, but then I started getting that heavy chest feeling yesterday.  Today I'm on the verge of either getting better or getting worse!  My body betrays me in ways that it didn't ten years ago.  My immune system laughs at me and says, 'Long hours, late nights and working on weekends is TOO are a few germs to remind you of how ridiculous you are!'   

My job is changing.  Today, four different people at work and my husband asked me, 'How do you feel about that?'  Really, they should go through that volunteer training for the hotline.  They might be good at it or something.  In answer to that question, it's quite sad yet exciting at the same time.  I just realised that it's been nine years since I first got hired!  It's funny to think of how grown up I am now!

Lydia's changing too.  I'm always laughing at Lydia.  I asked her to mimic her Daddy's 'bad face' to which she replied, 'I can't do that because I'm too nice'.  When I think of Lydia, 'nice' isn't exactly the first word that comes to mind.  Cheeky, sassy, animated, dramatic, stubborn, fun-loving... these words come to mind.  Nice?  Not exactly the top of the list.  We just moved her from a home daycare to a development center type setting a couple of weeks ago.  She seems to be taking to it quite well and she's enjoying herself.  I've found that the biggest things she's learned so far are, 'But why, Mummy?' and 'I don't know'.  I wouldn't exactly say I'm proud, but I've been told these are just traits of an average three year old so I'm trying to roll with it!

At this very moment, Gary and Lydia are sleeping outside in a tent. They were supposed to go to a Father's Day sleepover at the aquarium but it got cancelled because there weren't enough people signed up. Gary decided to put up the tent in the back yard, get the sleeping bags out and sleep under the stars. Lydia is loving it. She's been incessantly talking about camping since the Legend of Pinkfoot show she watched. I love watching my husband and child together. Gary's a really great Dad.  Lydia is just perfectly Lydia.

Until next time!


  1. The older we get the less forgiving our bodies become - yes, it laughs in our faces as we attempt to do those things we did so easily not long ago. Glad she is loving the centre - they are so resilient and adapt far easier than we do that it amazes me. Did you not camp outside with them? I cannot wait to do that - toasting marshmallows on a fire and counting the stars :)
