I am finally on vacation and all is well. I found the batteries. I found the camera. I packed everything I needed except for socks. And well? You can buy socks anywhere. Baby Z. can walk while clutching a tightly held finger and he walked right over to me and plopped in my lap the minute I got here. He loves, loves, loves the lake and sitting by the shore, splashing until he gets so tired, he falls over and has to be rescued with a big, fat, fluffy towel and then snuggled dry and asleep.
Thank you all for your kind words. Last week was a hard one. Too much all at once I guess. But The Universe kind of has a way with things like that. I get to lay around for 9 whole days. Isn't that lovely?
