Have you missed me? I’ve been quiet lately. It’s been quiet around here, so there’s really nothing to tell you.
Okay, not really. It has been BUSY, and we have been doing ALL THE THINGS. One can hardly ever say it is QUIET, especially around here, given the full-throated living out loud that That Girl tends to do. But it has been somewhat… boring.
And nobody wants to read boring on the intertubes. Well, I am sure SOME people do. Goodness knows there are enough websites and blogs and tweets and message boards out there full of the boring minutiae of people’s lives.
“Today I had a chicken sandwich for lunch!”
“Hot enough for you?”
“My speshul snowflayk child pooped rainbows and fairy dust!!”
There’s enough mind-numbing nonsense out there. My noise does not need to be added to it.
And what would I say, anyway? Work for BDH has been very busy. That keeps the rest of our little family busy as well. And then we are keeping tabs on the health and happenings of friends and family and that keeps us busy too.
Busy busy busy.
But even the busy stuff is just ordinary, everyday life stuff. It’s go here, appointment there, cook this, clean that kind of stuff.
“My garden has been neglected because the weather is lousy.”
“My crazy neighbours have gone on vacation.”
“I did some knitting.”
See? Boring. Not even funny stuff, because my crazy neighbours are away.
But it has not been bad, and it has not been hot and humid, and that is nice. Although BDH has been working like a maniac, for Stinkerbelle and me, life has been passing slowly, and mostly pleasantly. And while it has been without fanfare, it has been without drama. And that is quite alright with me.
“That Girl is learning to catch.”
“We are starting speech therapy this month.”
“We are healthy and happy.”
Yep. Boring. But boring, although not blogworthy, has been quite lovely.
You’ll just have to take my word for it.
