Cursed roofers!

So we're getting a new roof on our block of townhouses. I am SOOO ready for them to be done! The racket is getting really annoying, and I am quite certain they are the reason I couldn't get Reuben to nap until late yesterday afternoon, subsequently throwing off his bedtime, and leaving me with an exhausted child this morning. I am not impressed.

My morning glories are blooming, I'll try to get pictures up soon when I can take some good ones. It makes me happy to see the purple flowers every morning.

Reuben is cutting his eighth tooth and it's making him miserable. Combine that with three late nights in a row, and we've entered into the world of tantrums. Mummy and Daddy are not thrilled.

Other than that, not much for news. We're heading up to the Cadet Camporee starting Aug 5 b/c Artech has the contract for it so Tim will be running the stage for their assemblies. Reuben and I will be camping at the family campground about a half hour away, so I'm looking forward to that. I'm really hoping we don't get too much rain like we have been lately, b/c that could make for a long week.

well, off for now. The roofers have quieted a little bit, so I think I will try to squeeze in a nap...

Wow two posts in a week!

Well, for some weird reason I feel compelled to post again so soon. Believe it or not I actually typed up a pretty long post just the day after the last one, but then never got around to publishing it, and now it doesn't make any sense. Oh well.

I've been feeling a little off the last few days after having some enlightening conversations with friends. Reuben's sleep habits probably don't help any either. He's slept through the night twice this week, then last night was up at 1:30 (a VERY odd hour for him). It doesn't help we've been getting him to bed late and the heat has been making him nap more frequently. Honestly I think I felt more rested when we were at a stable schedule up him waking up once between 3 and 4 then when we mess around with sleeping through the night only occasionally.

So my brain feels like it's flip-flopping between running away with me to the point of overload and then stopping dead in it's tracks so that I just feel rather like a zombie. It's an odd feeling... Most of the time I couldn't even tell you what thoughts are flooding my mind b/c they come so fast I don't even have time to ponder them. ...and don't tell me I should cut back on caffeine b/c I tried that earlier this week by going one day without coffee...it was a very bad idea...I remembered that I really don't function well without it anymore (see above paragraph describing our sleeping habits).

anyway, Reuben needs me to come play with him, so I'll end this weird rambling now...

I almost burned my lunch to give you this...

Well, I thought it was high time that I got around to updating again, and I've got some time to kill while my lunch is cooking. Many times I'm not sure what to put in an update, generally because life seems to continue on without much excitement. Reuben occasionally hits new milestones, but not frequently enough to make my updates here any more often. He's crawling around all over now, pulling himself on the furniture and walking along the couches. We went for our first camping trip with my parents over the July long weekend. Good times were had by all, and I was pleased with how well Reuben did. I was afraid he wouldn't nap, but he did fine with that, and loved crawling around in the sand. He wasn't a huge fan of the water, but it was pretty cold so I wasn't surprised.

I officially have the two kids lined up that I will be caring for full-time starting in September. It will be interesting to have three little one-year-olds running around the house. I like challenges, so while I pray for extra patience, I'm also kind of excited to see how it goes.

Tim continues on working for Artech. They've recently moved to a new building in Milton, so he put in a lot of extra hours for that. It's nice to have him home more now that's done, and he has actually had some spare time to do a few runs for Northland. While I never enjoy having him gone overnight, the extra cash sure does come in handy.

We recently celebrated our three year anniversary...it's hard to believe that it's only been three years. And I say that not meaning it feel like it's been an eternity, but more that I can't imagine my life without Tim anymore. We look forward to many more...

Well, lunch is about done now, so I'm off. Dear reader, I hope this update sees you well and happy. I have no idea how many people read this that I hear from frequently or how many I barely have contact with. Either way, I'd love to hear how you are doing...drop a comment or send me an email to let me know. I wish you God's peace my friends.
