new tree and free loot!

We planted a new Japanese Maple and sent the pic in to Figs & Ginger for their second annual Earth Day Giveaway.  I tried to post the photo here but I'm having trouble for some reason. I was able to send it to Flickr.  The giveaway is over soon.  Plant a tree and take a pic before it's too late!

Alex's brothers and sisters took his Dad on a surprise deep sea fishing trip for his sixtieth birthday.  I am glad he is home and really glad that he brought back lots of fresh mahi mahi for our grilling pleasure.  I posted his pics to my Flickr stream.

Six months

It's been six months since Lucas was born.

Ir's been six months since I've had a paying job.  My plan was to be working part-time by now.  I am starting to feel guilty about staying at home and not making any extra money.

It's been six months since I slept through the night without waking up for breathing checks.  We just moved Lucas from the cradle beside our bed to the crib in his room.  I miss him at night.

It's been six months of diapers and bottles.  My hands have never been so dry.  I wash them constantly.

It's been the best six months ever.

Smilers never lose and frowners never win.

I've been singing Frente today.  All the creatures in my house are happy and optimistic on this Monday morning. We had a pretty good weekend.  Alex, Julie, Lucas, and I took a day trip to Charleston on Saturday. I got to visit an actual Urban Outfitters store, instead of their site, for the first time.  I didn't buy anything because we're poor but it was heavenly.  We also walked until our feet ached and talked about what it would be like if we lived in a house on the Battery.  Then we sang Battery by Metallica.  We finished the day with too much seafood at Hyman's Seafood.  Their food is also heavenly.  Now I am off to browse banana recipes since I have a bunch rotting on the kitchen counter.  Charleston pics below
