aaaaaand that happened.

Jason lost his job today. A complete shock to him and I’m guessing the other 14 or so other people his company had to let go. I mean 2 months ago he had a great review and got a raise, soooooo… Continue reading

Things to remember

Oh hey. I now have a one year old! Was there an interruption in the space time continuum? Because I don’t really know how that went by so quickly, and I’m not really happy about the fact that time just seems to be speeding up as I get older. slow down time. Also i’d like … Continue reading

good times

Sebastian crawling around the water feature at the park, and banging on stools as drums…

Getting relief from the heat with an afternoon frozen yogurt break, looking forward to the day when we can share a treat…

Last night Jason took the baby up to his parents so we can spend tonight celebrating and may be get to sleep in past five in the morning tomorrow. Side note: I don’t think I ever want to stop referring to Baz as “the baby”. It feels like the most appropriate moniker for him most … Continue reading

Jason’s parents were there waiting for us, and my parents arrived the next afternoon. For the next few days, … Continue reading
