So...what's new with you?

My dad came to visit. He and I and AD went to Navy Pier to visit with his beloved Pride Of Baltimore II. He's done 2 or 3 sails on this ship, and plans to do more. If my dad won the lottery he'd more than likely quit his day job and sail the seas.

Coming up, I'll get to visit with some friends that I haven't seen in a while: Kathleen and Fuz. A good time will be had by all, and I do mean all b/c Aaron is working so I have to bring the brood along.

And I have been going into the city once a week to meet with some friends that I met during the class I took at the SAIC.

And the biggest news: we are in the process of buying a house. A WHOLE HOUSE. We're in the part of that process where we have to wait...and wait. And get ants in our pants. Which brings me round to my least favorite activity: packing boxes!
I have found myself procrastinating by any means possible...including a renewed interest in dental hygiene. Ooh! Dental Floss!
So that's me.
Your turn!

And when he came home...

Adrian went for a week-long holiday at Nana and Papa's house. He went to the air show, the zoo, to see a movie, to play mini-golf...they wore him out with all the going and doing. And when he came home he was like a brand-new kid. Gone are the temper tantrums, the snarky comments, and being mean for the sake of meanness. My mom tells me that it goes in six month cycles, and I'm beginning to wonder if it has to do with being cooped in the house during the long and unpleasant winter months.
At any rate, he has been delightful for the past 2 weeks and I'm loving it.

In Fiona news: Chocolate pudding is good.
