And I was going to say, isn't it such a difference from what it was? Then I realized that I never did get around posting all my carefully complied pictures of the inside of the house in the last post! DUH! So sorry....See what getting old does to your brain?? It's a wonder that I remember to lock the door before I leave the house every morning!
We'd pretty much only paid (some) attention to the study and the closet...What to do? I think I must have hit my head hard when I was young, because I have a screwed up sense of "items worth shopping" for...I have no issues spending $$ on clothes or anything fashion related, but when you tell me I have to spend $80 on a shelf for the study, and I'll hem and haw about it for at least a month before taking the plunge! So much so that when my vanity went on sale from $400 to $150, I took so long to decide to get it that the price went back to the original price. GRrrrrrrrr

Week of 8/2 to 8/5
MY BIRTHDAY!!!! Although I don’t really appreciate the fact that I’m getting older (and therefore, my bones are starting to creak more, and my hair’s starting to fall out), I must say that it was quite a fun day!
Work colleagues made a big deal out of it (it was a little embarassing, actually, since I'm really not the type to should out "LOOK AT ME"...) but it was definitely fun to be fussed on.
And yes, I had TWO cakes...John went a little crazy there...I think it's because he thinks he's deprived of sweets and he's going to milk it as much as possible by saying "But hunny, these are for YOU" as he's gorging himself on the cakes.
Weekend of 8/11 – 8/12
We went down to Maryland for our last visit to Tommy and Margot’s before they ship out to Australia. Their house is almost all packed up, and John benefited with more gardening stuff.
Ethan is a big boy now! And the amazing thing is that he took to us quite readily and he got along famously with Buddy, who really is THE perfect size dog for little ones…It was adorable seeing them playing and running along together. Ethan would come bumpity-bump-bump down the stairs to the basement where we were residing just to follow Buddy (either that, or the egotistical side of me will say that it was me he’s looking for! *beams*)
Finally, a weekend where we can be alone, and do our mundane, normal, run-of-the-mill stuff which I love…Just the two of us (I’m a tad possessive, if you can’t tell). Absolutely loved it. Went to the park by the shoreline that's less than a mile from our house...That place is really hopping! All the oldies would come out and play...and when I say play, I really mean play...We have free concerts down there and one night, there was a Rod Stewart impressionist there, and this old man (complete with cane) was doing the boogie...Not a minute ago, he was shuffling around with his cane, and the next he's twisting and waving his stick around like he's Elvis! I think I almost died laughing!
