|Iris Took’s Nana’s building.|
This has been the weirdest “vacation” ever. Sure, there have been some fun, bright-spot moments that I’m so thankful for, but it’s been very… odd in general. I haven’t even been taking photos. (gasp.) The major issue is that I’m slightly paranoid about keeping Lila healthy before her re-scheduled tonsilectomy and adenoid removal/tubes on Thursday. She has a night-cough and it’s got me on edge. We just cannot delay this procedure again. CANNOT. We’ve got to get back to Cabo.
Pass the xanax.
|Bike rack crochet-cozie. Fabulous.|
I think if I’ve learned anything thus far from this trip, which I refuse to call a vacation, it’s that even the best plans don’t always work out. Maybe it’s because they’re not really the best plans, right? I’m not the master-plan-maker.
That said, we’re enjoying our family time. My Mom arrived Friday, the same day Craig flew back to Cabo. It’s been so nice having her here. So nice.

Craig comes home late tonight and my Mom leaves early Wednesday morning. The girls miss him. Lila keeps saying, “I wish I could give my Daddy a very big hug.”
And when I told Vivienne that her Daddy was coming back tomorrow she clenched her fists and ran in place and squealed. LOVE her.
The girls and I are enjoying temporarily living in downtown Toledo — we enjoy our walks and find the homeless people of Toledo to be quite talkative and pleasant despite the fact that Vivi has been called a boy several times. “He looks like he’s having fun.”
The pink hat and earrings don’t seem to help her cause.
|Late morning walk with the ladies. Superior street.|
I think we’ll be visiting the downtown library soon — if I remember correctly, the children’s section is pretty suh-weet.
Ok, that’s all for now.
P.S. I really hope Ivan wins The Next FoodStar.
