Some reasons to put your hands in the air and give a little “woot woot” — or, at least, for me to:
- I got a call from BDH yesterday. He was speaking in hushed tones. I was concerned. Turns out, there was no need for concern, but rather excitement… he had spent the morning planning a possible vacation for our little family, and didn’t want the entire office to hear when he called to ask what I thought of the idea. He was taking two weeks vacation, and wondered what I thought of driving home to NS via a meandering, scenic route through New Hampshire, Vermont and such. He was preparing a Google map with all sorts of neat places to visit, little inns to stay at, and beautiful scenery to go see. So what did I think of the idea? Well, I’ve been excited about the prospect ever since. That BDH, he is a wonder.
- My good friend and Stinkerbelle’s Auntie Heather is celebrating a birthday! Well, she’s Swedish, so it’s not just a birthDAY, but it’s a week-long celebration. Sometimes, stretching into a birthday MONTH. Whatever. It’s all good. Now, if that isn’t an excuse to send a Hoops and Yoyo e-card, I do not know what is.
- It is a special anniversary around here: the day, one year ago when a) my chipmunk friend drowned in a rainbarrel, so 2) I got on an exercise bike and rode for 20 km to make myself feel better, which c) caused me to be all out of breath, slightly peevish, and completely caught off guard when the phone rang, and we learned we were going to have a daughter.
