Happy Solstice!

Wow, I was just looking at all the blog posts I've started and not finished. It's been that kind of month. It's a time for changes and growth, all the while I feel like hibernating.

Bit Boy is considering going part time to public school 8th grade next semester. (This is HUGE, and one of the many posts I haven't finished is about this.) Our exchange student from last year is coming to dinner this week with the local girl who has apparently stolen his heart. The Lego Kid is starting to be more independent than I have ever hoped for, and is also keen to start his new business venture. Hot Dog has actually been quiet for an hour straight. (This probably has something do to with the new audio player he got for his birthday.) My father-in-law is declining faster than we had expected, although having expectations of a person in his 90's is probably silly.

And now a certain 7 yo is reminding me why I haven't finished anything this month...

My 7-year-old talks non-stop, around the clock -- she even talks in her sleep. I haven't had a complete thought in 5 years. :-P

I am sorry about your FIL's ill health. Though he's lived a long life, it can't be easy.

((Steph)) I totally commiserate with you. I love my chatter-box, but it is exhausting.

I'm sorry about my FIL's health too. Truly he's had a blessed and amazing life, and is doing so much better than most his age, we should just be grateful. (I'm just a whiner.)
