It's a Date!

This adorable little fella was crafted by my seven year old last week. Pretty cute, non? (And I must say, he's a lot less stinky than the barking variety.) Aidan aspires to be a fashion designer. She's practicing her sewing skills.

In other productive news from last week, we got our pots planted! As I alluded to in yesterday's post, we did so at night. Yes, in the dark. It wasn't planned that way but we had to get those flowers in the dirt and the only time we had was after work. By the time we got the little one fed and in bed and started on the planting, the sun was already setting. But those are just the kind of things that make for happy memories. Aidan loved it. And I think we did pretty well for blind gardening:

There are many more pots but I'll wait until we've gotten our porch painted before I share them all. Last year we pulled out some ugly old bushes and replaced the front of the porch but we haven't painted it yet. On the agenda for this summer!

And now for my exciting news! I have an opening date!!

... drum roll please....

Boo says, "Be there!"

Sleep deprivation

Oh dear... I think I pulled one-too-many all nighters this week. I'm apparently not as young as I was the first time I did this whole college thing.

But not to worry, Lilah is getting enough sleep for all of us:

Yes, she's in the cat bed.

I turned in my last paper this morning and now I just have one exam to go. It's not until Monday so I'm taking tonight off from studying. I'm so tired I can barely get a properly constructed sentence out of my mouth.

I had so much I was going to write about since my last post (like our late night pot-planting extravaganza!) but I'm just too spent. It will all have to wait.

In my immediate future I see a delightfully hot bath,  a Tivo'ed program or two with the love of my life, and best of all, BED!

Night night!
