trying hard not to miss Toby

stairs

It’s been a busy couple of days. Toby’s been gone since Tuesday and I’ve had company every day except one. I needed one down-day to clean the house and do laundry and just sort of unwind a little. But not too much un-winding. The one night I spent alone, gave me the creeps. I had horrible nightmares all night long that Alton Brown (who I love and shouldn’t be creeped out about at all) was stalking me! Why would I go and nightmare something like that? Who knows. But it wasn’t fun so I called up my family and talked them into coming back and staying with me until Toby gets back on Thursday. He was supposed to get back last Friday but then it got pushed back until this coming Tuesday and now he says he’s coming back this coming Thursday. I think he’s having too much fun. (If he knows what’s good for him, he’ll get back before my birthday on Friday. Though I shouldn’t complain too much, we did get a surprize package in the mail today {on SUNDAY with extra delivery charges!!!} with FUN wahine clothes for both Baby Bug and I!!!)

the whole family watching Pink Panther cartoons

When you have company you can’t just sit around and watch cartoons all day long so we’ve been getting out and about and doing fun things. We went to the Zoo.

We spent some quality sun-burn time at the beach and the Bay. The beach has been very very very crowded lately so we found the Bay to be much nicer. Plus there are no waves (except wake waves) which is great for the kids.

And of course we are eating lots of things with calories.

Baby-Bug helps Papa fix things

It’s been really great having so much family around. The niece-com-poops had to go home today but my Mom and Dad are staying on for a few days. My Dad’s gotta work but his commute from my house is just about the same from their house so he’s spending the week at Hotel Ponnay. Which is really really great for me because my Dad likes to fix things and there are lots of broken things here to be fixed. Speaking of fixing… My brother re-caulked my tub today. How wonderful is that? I love my family.
