Catching up

Well, I guess I haven't posted in awhile, so I'll fill in here.  This past month has been a bit crazy around here.  After Christa's birthday, we had our anniversary (#17), Ryan's birthday (#41) and lots of end of the year concerts, socials, soccer parties, field trips, and so on.  Things have calmed down a bit since everyone finished school, with flying colors I should add, and we are settling into some sort of routine, if you can call it that. Ryan has a new lab building that is ready this week, so we will be moving offices over the next bit, and trying to train in some new secretarial staff.  We also put the house on the market.  We won't actually be ready to move out until October most likely, but we figured we should capitalize on the summer traffic.  Right now we just have a For Sale By Owner sign out front, but we have had one person come look already.  We'll see what happens.  We have lots of changes going on, and while they are all exciting ones, it's stressful in some ways, too.  A few things I've learned in the last month:
-14 year olds should not be hand-washing priceless family heirloom bowls
-High density spray foam insulation exacerbates asthma
-8 pizzas are too many for a soccer team pool party
-I must know where Paisley is at every moment-if I can't hear her, it means trouble
-How Spock and Captain Kirk became friends
-Sierra doesn't run into things as often without the filter on her glasses
-Emma would rather hang around the boys 
-Hot pink nail polish doesn't really come out of carpet, and the bottles break when dropped onto tile floors
-Love is a choice
-Cats can be pregnant again 8 weeks postpartum
-My husband can still make my heart flutter
-I don't remember very many people from high school
Until next time . . .

Loved your list too! Especially the one about your husband making your heart flutter!

Yes, reunion time this year! Not going to mine although I really kind of wish I was! Too far away!

Love you lots, Kelli!

good to know. I'll have to remember some of those things. I'm curious, what happened to the priceless family heirloom bowl and why was it being washed?

I hope you come over early on Wednesday because it sounds like you have some stories to tell. What are you going to do with all those kittens? Maybe it is time for kitty to get fixed!

Wow, Kelli. I love your list! It's amazing what you can learn in a month, huh?! Some of those lessons sound like they have GREAT stories behind them. You all have A LOT going on this summer. You must feel C-R-A-Z-Y busy most days. Good luck with everything - hope all goes smoothly!
