If I had been updating regularly, you would already know...
...I planted a bunch of herbs and a few vegetables in pots and barrels in front of my trailer.
...Kitty (the mom cat) is getting way too skinny, but a few of the kittens are eating solid foods now, so I hope that will help.
...Sawyer is eating "puffs" (his first finger foods).
...I did something I swore to myself 12 years ago I would NEVER do again: I cut my own bangs. I was only going to trim my long, sideswept bangs, but then I thought, "I need a new look" (and ignored the warning bell in my head). By the time I was done, I realized I was sporting about the exact same haircut as in my senior picture (circa 1995), except with bangs that look only slightly less "curled-over-a-popcan" and slightly more "trimmed not by scissors but by nibbling rats". Worse, my hairdresser/sister Krista was on a Mexican cruise, and couldn't fix them for me for several days. People tell me they look cute (and by "people", I mean aforementioned sister), but I'm not so sure. Sawyer stared at me and Tyson laughed at me, and their reactions seem a bit more honest.
...Tyson finished spring semester and got a 4.0 (again). He is already done with three of the 12 credits he is taking this summer, and then he graduates!
...I don't even want to talk about Mothers Day -- but I do have a great mom and mother-in-law, so I want to give them a shout-out. The cards I wrote for them (and for my grandmother) are still on my counter.
That pretty much brings us to the present. We had a family birthday dinner at the Mandarin last night for my dad and Krista. Thanks Mom and Dad, it was delicious! We still need to sing happy birthday, though!
Here are a few pictures I took before my camera died. Sorry, they are blurry, but these are of Sawyer eating puffs for the first time, and a family picture Kara took on Mothers Day. Tyson and I look kind of goofy, but Sawyer is a doll, and isn't he who everyone looks at anyway? (Note: this was before Krista's fix-job on my bangs.)
"I love you, Kitty. Come here!"
