weeks I've been hiding out at home from the sun and heat, and it dawned
on me that I'm missing out on summer. I haven't been this pastey white
in a really long time. I think Ashlyn's even darker than I am. =P Normally
by this time, I'd be sporting the summer glow...unfortunately, the only
thing I'm sporting these days is dry skin and a whole lotta ugly bruises.
Aric had a department dinner with some co-workers from the China office,
Ashlyn and I met up with Ed and Sue for dinner. We went to BJ's Pizzeria,
but the wait was crazy long...so we left. Sue was craving Italian food,
so we headed over to Macaroni Grill (no wait there). We shared Calamari
Fritti, and while Ed and Sue both ordered pasta, I opted for a light
salad with Salmon crutons. It was yummy!
Ashlyn and I came home after Target, and Aric came home shortly thereafter. Ashlyn has become quite attached to her Daddy. The minute he walks in the door, her whole face lights up. And if he ducks away to use the bathroom, she'll start to cry...ignoring my constant reassurance that "he'll be right back". Aric spent time with her, gave Ashlyn her last bottle, and tucked her into bed while I finally checked email (our internet connection was down today).
As you can tell, I'm still in a writing-rut. I feel as though the contents of my journals have digressed..not that they were ever stellar...but now it's just plain *yawn* booooooring. Cin had once told me that she prefers reading my thoughts on certain issues or life experiences rather than reading what I did or what I ate. Well when you put it that way, don't I feel pathetic. =T
a life experience. I can't guarantee that it's the least bit interesting,
but it was, uh...different.
*yawn*...more sharing another time. The hubby passed out on the couch while patiently waiting for me. Awwwww! =) I gotta drag him up to bed. G'Nite!
