What did I do instead of making soup?
- Knocked off nearly every one of my to-do items early on Saturday before it got too hot
- Picked up our veggie CSA box - highlight? organic carrots!
- Took Alouysius to the dog park (where he ate mushrooms despite TCB's best efforts and then barfed them up - wholly intact! - about an hour later on the woolie in his crate. Nice)
- Did six loads of laundry
- Went back into my veggie garden after several months of abandonment
And Alcott's sister came home from school (UC Davis!) this weekend. She had a very stressful first quarter away from home and cut herself off from most of the helpful adults in her life, including us. I honestly thought we'd lost her forever, but it turns out that she got really busy learning some hard life lessons and an appreciation for the love and support she has at home. After some talking, some hugs, and some tears, we have our unofficially adopted daughter back, and I realized how much it hurt when she disconnected.
There's nothing more important than family and health, and I'm fighting to enjoy both to their maximum.
