Yay on the interview! Tomorrow. I leave at dark-thirty in the morning, tonight. My plane doesn't actually leave till 8am, but the airport's 2 hours away, and I have to be there ahead, so...I get up at 3ish a.m. to leave at 4.
YAY!!! OMGs mamas...it's not the sex, or the hanging out, or the being together at all...I just want to breathe
him. And be in close proximity.

Yeah, that was a bad move - he came home that night, ended up in urgent care for an abscessed tooth, and the next two days were spent at dentists and oral surgeons. Total cost $550. Ouch.
In their favor, they do not know we are Pagan, so they couldn't have possibly realized that was the weekend we planned to celebrate Summer Solstice (and we agreed to go before it clicked for us). However, she darn sure DID know that was Father's Day and has just made sure DH's dad will be without his children and grandchildren that day.
Thank you for the well wishes!
Bad Move-- I'd file that one under "be careful what you wish for", huh? I'm sorry he's going through that; ouch.
Boo on the conflict. I thought about having a small bonfire on Solstice since we are not going to PSG (for the first time in 10 consecutive years!). But my brother, who almost never visits anyone, may be in town that week, or weekend. My mom says not to count on it, but if he is, I'd put everything aside to see him. That's such a rarity.
Maybe I'll have the bonfire on the Saturday. Which day is Solstice? Sunday?

Just stairs going up 8 feet. As I was trying to calmly walk the 10 ft to him and telling hin not to go up himself, he turns around and falls off the side. Fell about 4-5 feet. Amazingly, he flipped head over heels 270 degrees and landed flat on his back. With no injuries!!! Not even a bruise.
On Sunday, kiddos I went to the “Wildlife Conservation Center.” The have big game animals, (and a porcupine for good measure). DS loved the wood bison, musk ox & caribou herds. He really liked the porcupine.
WOW, scary baby moment!! Glad it all turned out alright! ~wipes brow~
Your nature center sounds so cool. Ours has things like wolves, bears, birds of prey, raccoons, and snakes. Bobcats. I would LOVE to see a musk ox up close and personal! I love those! How big are they really? In books they look huge.
My thoughts about your DH and commercial holidays: it's not about the person who's a fan of them or not. He can refuse to honor Father's Day if he likes, because he'd be the recipient, but if YOU like Mother's Day and wish to be honored, he should go along with that, and at least wish you a happy day. It's not a commercial day if you don't Buy Stuff for it, like cards and flowers and stuff that's meant to spike sales.

Here it's 50, rainy, damp, and windy. Yep, it's not right. I've got the heat on and I'm still in sweats and flannel!

I'm making enchiladas and vegetarian tamales for dinner tonight. And maybe a carrot cake too.
I'd be making a not-so-subtle suggestion to my DH if he'd done that
But being that I don't have a DH (well, a handfasted one 800+ miles away, but...) it really helps that I have a DS who is now 9 and LOVES to wash the car
I'd like to check out your recipes

on a lighter note.. i made 6 pairs of babylegs for $10! i just bought real long socks with pretty patterns and cut off the heel and toe. the made a cuff out of the instep and sewed it together. i found a tut on you tube. they are so cute. now to go measure my kids for patterns.....
That is weird, Lioness; it does sound like the Universe is trying to tell you something. I wish I had an answer for you! Maybe divine about it? Meditate?
Those babylegs sound like something I'd like for myself
Unless they're like the leg warmers of the 80s...yes, I know I'm dating myself
Tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow I will be in my love's arms once again
Clay, I think I forgot you; so sorry! Yay double yay on the inspection!
