The kids are all napping, and I'm making soup. It's currently simmering. I'm trying to be better about blogging, and since I may be out of the blogging world for the next 3-4 weeks, I decided to post. This past week we've been getting ready for a trip to Oklahoma. I will be going to Paul's parents' for two weeks with the kids to escape the heat (to the humidity). The kids are so excited for Grandpa to come on Saturday and "pick us up". Grandpa Jeff will be flying from San Diego to our house Saturday, and then driving with the kids and me on Monday. It's been 106 degrees here for the past three days, and it's only gonna get hotter! So, we're pretty excited. We'll miss Daddy tremendously! But, he has quite the list of things he can do to keep him busy. And when I say quite the list, I made it myself. If you know me, you know I'm a lists person. It's pretty detailed. He doesn't have to get everything done. But, he has plenty to do if he finds that a house with ten less hands gets boring! (Oh, the things I would do if I had a week with eight less hands....!) After our vacation to Oklahoma, we will be meeting Paul along the way to Pagosa Springs, Colorado to play with my immediate family for a few days before heading back to Tucson. Hopefully, by the time we get home, monsoon season will be in full swing! It's not that I don't like the heat. I love the spring, fall, and winter here. The summer isn't really that bad. I just like being outside. So, in preparation for our great mid-west adventure, I've been making Paul a lot of freezer meals so that his diet doesn't consist of Hot Pockets, creating packing lists, and potty-training Ewan (maybe not such a good idea).
