From my house to Red Rocks Amphitheater.
At least five times a week, I lace up my sneakers and drive twenty-seven minutes each way.
So totally worth it.
Crazy pretty sunrise…
I was hopeful that I could get out for a run, but the rain/snow blew in faster than I planed.
So I went shopping, picking up this among other things….
I cut it short as Danny was having a tough afternoon. Poor kid. Between the weather and missing his daddy….it was not his best afternoon.
Even though Hugh gets home every night, by 8:00 or 8:30pm…Danny is usually so tired from his day, he is asleep when Hugh walks through the door. He can go days without seeing his father during busy season.
The evening looked like this…
So we hunkered down….
Just being silly…
I even managed to grab a couple of pics of the elusive Jack before he shut me down…..complete with “oh mother…..”
Hugh made it home in time to tuck in a very tired Danny who stubbornly refused to go to bed even though he was completely wiped out…..
It was a very boring ordinary day.
Which is a lovely gift.
I’ve had more than our fair share of exciting drama filled days….I so much prefer the boring ordinary days and a quiet night at home.
Well, besides what every one else thinks is emergent.
It is when Dan’s lemonade gets knocked…which causes it to spill… Which then results on a sticky and fried router…
No Internet means that we drop everything and do what we can to fix it.
So, right now I am in line at comcast trying to pick up new equipment.
Let’s watch momma Laura play tech geek shall we???
I had a meeting this week with the school districts assistive technology team.
Danny is non verbal.
But he does communicate to us quite well. He speaks in sign. His sign language vocabulary has 500 words in it (thank you Signing Time).
But we have decided to begin the long process of a communication device as most of the world doesn’t speak sign.
And during the meeting, we chatted about how Danny totally gets his meaning across, even if you can’t understand how he us speaking to you.
Hugh is a tax CPA. And it’s his busy season right now. Dan isn’t seeing much of him right now.
Danny added a few pictures from around the house to his collection of stuff he holds dear…
This translates into…
“I’m missing my daddy”
Even though it’s chilly, my mind turned to summer today. Although, no on that knows me personally would be surprised by that
I started the day at the dermatologist’s office.
I spent many of my years before I turned a quarter of a century old, by the coast. I have been lucky to be able to call both of them my home at different points in my life.
But today I paid the piper for never thinking about using sunscreen.
And my thoughts turned to summers future. Because we are only a month or so from spring.
And this old body needs some work.
Why hello there old friend…
It’s been a few months, but you will see a lot of my while I make up some time.
