Summer Fun

There are times that we have relatively little going on. We fall into simple routines that work for us, and the days blur together with little distinguishing one from the next.

Lately, however, it feels as though each day has been crammed to the brim with out of the ordinary events, some more exciting than others.

A little over a week ago Tony had his wisdom teeth pulled and he has been in pain since. This has led to sleepless nights, some missed work, and a few trips to the dentist and pharmacy.

Last Monday, we bought a new car. A 2006 Pontiac Vibe with 42,000 miles on it. We were reluctant to make a purchase that required a car loan, but the Dodge Stratus became too unsafe to continue driving and not worth putting any money into. We did our homework and got a great deal that works for our budget. We turned in our car and picked up the new keys on my birthday.

With the weather perfect for outdoor adventures, we try to spend more daylight outside than in. We've found new parks and playgrounds, hiked trails, and found a beach for swimming. Levi seems to love exploring and we enjoy learning even more about our new home of Buffalo.

All of this outdoor playing has led to a messy, messy house. The dishes were out of control, laundry needs to be done, and there is clutter everywhere. And it never ends. It is a one step forward, two steps back process at the moment. I am determined to get it under control. Tomorrow.

Levi is sick right now- croup is making him miserable. He has a fever, runny nose and watery eyes as well. Nighttime has been rough.

This weekend my dad and his wife are coming to visit. I am excited to see them and hoping to get some free time with Tony.

Our weekends are basically planned through the end of July. We are trying to make the most of this summer and enjoy every minute. I guess the house might be dirty more frequently than not.
