We move in a week.  I have now packed roughly 12 boxes.  I'm over it.  I picked up a bunch of boxes from a super organized friend who just moved.  She expressed surprise when I said I was really going to get cracking.  Apparently she packed for two months before her move, much to my consternation.

I had an amazing dinner with friends Friday night- a cozy French brasserie, ideal for a rainy night.  Escargot, pork belly, mussels, and foie gras- our appetizers alone were heavenly.  Tbalance it out, I had a salad for dinner, albeit one with fried oysters and lardons. I love to be with people who love food as much as I do.  I think constantly dieting dull one's personality after a while.  Or maybe I just tell myself that, ha!

Dell Harper had her first gymnastics lesson today.  It was adorable, and she did great! I think she has inherited her father's eye-hand coordination (thank the Lord!).  I can't even do a cartwheel.

Okay, back to work.  I'm hiding out at Panera while the kiddos play with their favorite sitter.  I keep telling myself that once I finish up my work projects, then I will get everything packed up. I have a feeling that my first all-nighter since one ill-fated attempt in law school might be happening soon.

And, as usual, in lieu of any content, here's a bunch of cute pictures.

They are awfully cute.  Too bad they can't pack boxes.


  1. I heart your blog, you always crack me up. It's good to know I'm not the only one in the world who can't do a cartwheel. Your kiddos are so adorable. Good luck packing those boxes and moving...cause moving really does suck but the end result is usually pretty cool.

  2. I was a sucky packer or I would come help. But once it is done, it is awesome. I need to sign SS up for some sort of lessons.

  3. Samma! I can't do a cartwheel either. I knew we were soul sisters!


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
