We've been busy at the house this week. Bought some spackle, paint, brushes, and fabric. Our bedroom went from a grotesque 'beige' to a lovely dark dark gray. I love it. The trim will be white, and I will be making some curtains with yellow, gray, and white. It will be swank city. We've been talking more about our move west next year and I can't wait. I want to go now but I know we need to stay so Greg can finish school. So I am patient because a year isn't that long, and it will be well worth the wait. Finally going back where I feel the best! My mom and niece Olivia will be coming out in August and I cannot wait. I miss them so. It will be lovely to see them, and show them around our fun city. Simon has developed a fear of thunderstorms, and Duncan has taken over Simon's room. Simon is camping in our room until D gets accustomed to his new digs, and bam. Simon has a fear of thunderstorms...wakes up screaming, crying. It's fantastic. That's about all. Our garden is growing and growing; the sunflowers are taller than the deck. I can't wait to see their beautiful blooms.
