Sorry I've been a little bit absent, but our internet crapped out one night, which caused a chain reaction of not being able to connect to the internet. Luckily, my husband has a cool head (I was in high panic) and remembered that it sometimes works (in situations such as this) to unplug everything and plug it back in. Somehow that seemed to work on the little hangover our computers were experiencing from the internet outage.
And hey - guess what? Katie is coming for a visit this weekend! Zach has an exam in Los Angeles on Saturday morning so he and Katie will spend Friday night here (Zach holed up in my stellar office studying and Katie out playing with me and whoever else we can round up.) Then Saturday we can have fun all day until Zach comes back from taking his exam. *sigh* Then I guess Katie will want to go on a date with him or something, and I'll have to hang out with L. Or maybe not - it's all pretty much up in the air right now. That always makes me feel a little chaotic - I like to have everything mapped out. But part of the fun is NOT having everything scheduled. That's kind of how my life goes: I'm either feeling trapped and overscheduled or I have that crazed feeling of not knowing what to expect next. One thing I do know is that we'll spend a lot of time laughing. So automatically I know that L will make an early exit - he gets impatient with silliness, and oh, we do get silly.
L does not have a silly gene. Neither do Andrew and Tim. But the rest of us have an over abundance of silly, and we have such a good time when we're together. I mean, I have a good time with Andrew and Tim too, but it's a dignified good time. The rest of us are rarely dignified, which kind of horrifies L. We're breaking him down though. Slowly.
ps: Here is a little bit of pre-Valentine's Day sweetness - I can't resist these two, but who could?
