End of summer

Katrina has just wiped out the Gulf Coast of the US - New Orleans is under water. It's weird. We watched some footage, Beca got sad, I got sad. Jessi's family is living in a basement somewhere, pregnant. It's scary, thinking how vulnerable we really are.

My Janulicious group is going to move...sad to say bye to MDC for that group, but also the start of something new. It's a nice group...I guess it feels like the end becuase there are other Jan. 05 mamas on MDC that won't be able to join in. : (

Orin has his first real fever this week. sigh. poor fella is taking it very well, and of course it doesn't affect his voracious appetite. Kid poops as much as a horse and eats like ... I dunno...a shark?

One week till school - Beca is both excited and sad. It'll be nice for her to have more stimulation than she gets here most days, but I'll miss her. It'll also be nice for Orin and I to have some quiet time together. So all in all a good thing, I think. And she gets a lunchbox just like Matthew McGuire's. This is GOOD!

Jerry is in recovery from losing Geoff. It's such a devestating loss for us. He has really sad moments, and then times when life seems back to normal (ie: denial). It definately marred our trip to Niagara, which otherwise went well (other than the lack of sleep for me LOL).

Spent overnight on the 27th in Stockbridge with M&D - Orin slept so poorly with Jerry in the bed, but after kicking the big fella up onto the couch, Ori and I slept fine. a good 4 hr. stint, but he was so tired, he slept 3 hrs. in the morning too (but I didn't). I did go shopping and Mary bought me a beautiful orange cashmere stole. I purchased a sunburst pin to go with it - stunning! The kids got a bunch of stuff from a sweet boutique in town, too.

Well, I think that's about it! We're looking forward to a playdate with Sarah Steckel and Brig, on Friday, and a fun weekend ahead!

Meant to say that Mary bought me the stole. It's very soft and pumpkin orange :)
