Have you ever been busy but when you look back you can’t really remember what exactly you’ve been busy doing? I guess that’s me lately.
Let’s see. I’ve been playing a bit more hockey than usual. Three games in seven days. That’s not a terrible amount, but is more than my body is used to. What doesn’t help is that most of our players (college age guys) were on spring break so in two of the games I got A LOT of ice time. Really improved my skating, but this old man is a bit sore.
What else? Hmm. Doing stuff with the kids, I guess. My daughter has a bit of a cough and head cold, but that doesn’t slow her down in the waking hours. She’s been making picture books, which we help with a little bit (she asks us how to spell a word and then she writes it), and really taken a liking to Strawberry Shortcake (Strawberry Shortcake: Happily Ever After, a really cute story which has been the subject of our dinner conversations and the aforementioned books). I think we’re finally exiting the “terrible twos” days. She’ll be four in May.
The son, is enjoying his one-year-old-ness, getting into everything and walking around bumping his head on things, like all healthy one year olds do. He hasn’t said a lot of words yet, but I think he’s close. He also has his first tooth poking out of his bottom gums.
I haven’t done much writing although I do have a new novel idea (finally). Been thinking about that a lot lately and hope to begin writing soon. If I ever get the time. Meaning, if I even stop wasting time on the internet. 🙂
