Home Again and Back to Work

That was  quite a week! I’m back home after the big celebration of my FIL’s 90th birthday. We were kept pretty busy all week, which was nice. Down time is overrated.

Not only did we pay homage to my husband’s father, but I got to spend Mother’s Day with my #4 child. She’s lived down south ever since she went away to college way back in 1999 or so, except for a brief interlude in Napa, which still is not exactly next door. So being together for Mother’s Day was a momentous occasion for both of us. We also spent the day with Tayde, Mary’s mother-in-law, who has been a perfect “mother” to Mary in my absence.










Of course, we also included the husbands and kids while we explored the Birch Aquarium in La Jolla!

Now, alas, it’s back to work. I bought groceries, went to water aerobics, and checked on the garden. Some critter dug up my carrots while we were gone. Glad something’s getting use out of it.

Next up is editing of Worlds Apart and I have new childbirth series starting tonight. So I should stay out of trouble for a few days, at least.
