I am taking Cedar on a wee adventure. Will be back later in the week. It is SO needed. Its been a rough week due to some serious teething and growing pains all at once. I swear he woke up yesterday morning a foot taller. Okay, well at least a few inches. He is going to be a tall one. He is the height of an average 3 year old. I wonder when he's going to tower over little ole' me...when he's five?!?!?
Two tall boys in the home. I can see the jokes to be had in the future. Growing up, the running joke in our house was that my mother was adopted. We were all dark haired and mostly dark skinned and she was pure white with freckles and red hair. People sort of cocked their head sideways when she'd say "these are my girls!" It SO was not politically correct that we said she was adopted but now that I've adopted, I feel I can make light of it. ; )
I was talking about our rough week. Yes. So yesterday I get a call from Boho Boy on his way home from work. He told me he wanted me to go see a movie tomorrow. Have some alone time. I had a huge lump in my throat and when I hung up the phone, a few tears spilled. I didn't realize how much I needed some "me" time until that moment and I felt so filled with gratefulness that he knew what I needed more than me. He truly is an amazing man. I heart him.
I chose to go see Twighlight: Eclipse. I just had to! I am a Twi-Geek. Read all the books in the same month. I was obviously in some serious need for light drama and fantasy and ethereal love stories that month. ; ) So there I was today sitting in the theater...a crushed out girl in a sea of crushed out girlies that are hot for vampires and werewolves. It was awesome! The collective clapping and sighing and squealing. The energy was so great and just what I needed. Escape! I'll be the first one to admit that I am a dreamer and love to escape now and then and one of my favorite things to do as a young adult until now is drive in a car, listen to music and dream up scenarios and adventures. It must be the writer in me.
So I end this wishing each of you a dreamy week full of imagination and adventures. I also want to end it with this adorable photo of Cedar. I FINALLY got him in his yogi pose. He does this all the time. Just sort of sits there in deep thought. I wish my limbs could do this with ease...
