...And it's Monday...

Ever feel like you're just running and running, but not getting a darn thing done?

That's kind of how I've felt for the last few weeks.

Getting settled into a new place has turned out to be a miserable process. The computer room has turned into kind of a catch-all for the miscellaneous boxes I still have to go through, and our bedroom is still a disaster area. We still have a couple recliners, a coffee table and an end table that's kind of piled up by the door that's going to go to Annie's sisters new apartment, but until it goes, it just kind of sits there, driving me crazy like it has for weeks now.

Today Sebastian's school re-opened for registration, so I took him in with me to pick up the stack of forms I need to fill out. He acts as if he's excited for the new school, but he told me the other day that he's secretly very scared to go to a new school, so we're going to have to make sure that we go out of our way to show him what a cool place this new school is. Yesterday, Phil drove us by the school and through the parking lot, so Sebastian could see that the new playground is MUCH bigger than the one in his old school-and that there is even a softball field in the back.

There is not much in life that impresses our son, but a bitchin' playground is right up there with Tornados and famous structures. Oh. Can't forget Spiderman!

Today he got to go into the office with me, and he checked out the hallway which is filled with some really cool artwork, and he seems a bit more relaxed and even positive about the new school.

After we left the school, we hit the grocery store, and then we stopped at Starbucks where I treated him to a chocolate milk, and then we headed home, where I started the sauce for dinner and even baked a cake and did laundry. Go, me!

Tonight, Andrea and I have a Cookie Lee meeting to attend. That is, if she's not sick of me. She and her husband Steve were by last night to watch the Seahawks game, and we threw some burgers and hot dogs on the grill afterwards.

Well, I'm off. I'll try to be better about updating and taking pictures. I haven't taken many pictures in the last couple weeks, so you're all stuck with a picture of my new baby, Freya. She's a Tonkinese, (half siamese, half burmese) and I adore her. How can you look at that face and not love it?

Anyway, if any of you need a Cookie Lee catalog, shoot me a message and I'll get them out in the mail to you.
