It's a great place to be

Hair cuts

Yesterday dad came home! So, the kids have magnetized themselves to him since and I don't mind at all. We did have a nice talk about where we are right now, and where we aren't, and I feel like I have a better focus now. This in-between time is just not going to do. So, right now I am here. And until that changes, I will have my focus here. We will plan for our summer to be spent here. When we think about school starting in the fall, we will plan to go here. And yes, we're still moving when the house sells, but that is someday. Right now we are here and for this I am very thankful and happy. I like this right now.

Today we went to see Inside Out. We all loved it. I took the boys for hair cuts. We came home and I prepared a ton of food for tomorrow- we're having friends over and will have a feast. I can't wait.

July and Day 22

Well, we made it to July. And oh man I am having the hardest time getting my kids to bed. The sun doesn't go down until so late here. I know it's summer but we need sleep. Today we trekked up to Coos Bay to do some shopping to stock the pantry. I realized that I haven't crossed the bridge to leave Bandon in almost three weeks. It's nice to stay here on our little pretend island sometimes. Soon enough we'll be heading back up to Seattle so I'm cherishing all this time out of the car.

Jeff comes home tomorrow night and I can always sense I need to get to the end of my shift with the kids- soccer balls flying through my living room and fighting and "you bit me!" and "no I didn't!" and "then why were your teeth on my arm?" - I made everybody sit together and watch a movie. I put on Nacho Libre and have no idea why they thought it was so funny but glad they did. Then they all bonded over Siri and asking her dumb questions. And finally, they went to bed.

and it's only a Tuesday

Knitted gifts & a ring sling

I finished all my knitting! And just in time- my life-long friend had her baby at home last night. It was magical. How I wish I could be giving these gifts to her in person.

Today was better! It was good. It actually felt like a day off, and it's only a Tuesday. (day twenty-one)
