It’s been a busy few days. At least one rather large piece of news that will affect our financial state is in the tubes for reals, but I won’t announce it all public-like on the blog until all the appropriate people in real life know first.
Props to the October 3 birthday boys: William (my nephew turns 1!) and Will (okay, so technically Will is older than I am, but he’s still my surrogate little brother and I don’t care what you say).
And props to me for turning 26 on Saturday. I’ll be backpacking with Matt and two of our good friends in Rocky Mountain National Park, so you can be sure I’ll be enjoying myself. It’s leaf season for the aspens, and we’ll be up visiting several alpine lakes, and you can be jealous of me all weekend if you like. I won’t mind.
Have I mentioned lately that I love my husband? Because I do. He’s lovely and wonderful and terribly good to me. I just thought I’d share.
Oh! We went to REI today (only natural, since we’re going hiking tomorrow) and I found hiking pants in a tall size. *squee!* They fit! And they won’t shrink! And they’ll look fabulous all summer on or off the trail! And they were on sale! I tried to wear them around as a hat when we got home, but it became troublesome while I packed so I had to set them aside. But never fear, tall-pants, I still love you.
Shiloh will spend the weekend with Kodiak, the amazing one-eyed jumping husky. Hopefully, she won’t pick up any of his bad habits while she’s there. At the very least, we’re pretty sure she’s physically incapable of jumping a 6-foot fence like Kodiak does. Everything else is up in the air.
And now, it’s way past my bedtime, so I shall bid you all adieu. Until Monday. . . .
