So I haven’t been writing much lately, as you’ve probably noticed. There just hasn’t been anything to say. Although I was down in the dumps life has been running smoothly for the most part and that just leaves me with nothing to say. I guess when things go right life is boring. Not a bad boring but just not interesting.
I could sit here and tell you that the boys are doing really well in school. They haven’t had any problems with adjusting to the new year and they are just your typical kids. They go to school and participate, they have friends, Odin is now in Boy Scouts and both boys start music lessons soon. They are both excited for Halloween. Odin is going to be a ninja and Gray is going as Kylo Ren. It is now late enough in the year where I can use Santa as a good threat to make them behave. They are just your typical little boys.
Dessa is doing great. She’s 8 months old now. She’s able to get around by army crawling but has yet to master crawling on her hands and knees. She’s eating puree baby food and those styrofoam Cheeto things. She isn’t excited about Halloween because she doesn’t know what it is but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that will change in a year or two. She going to be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz this year. I even got her the glittery red shoes and a little Toto to carry with her. She’s a very happy baby even though she still doesn’t have any teeth. She’s also tiny unlike her two older brother who were massive. She’s just your typical little baby.
Nick and I have been doing fine. We have our up’s and down’s but nothing extreme like it used to be. I do at time wish Nick managed his time better and put more of an effort into our relationship. Just because we are married doesn’t mean we shouldn’t go out on dates and have fun with each other. He isn’t always as thoughtful as I’d like him to be but everybody has their strength and weaknesses. I don’t expect him to be perfect which is why these things all feel very trivial to me.
Other than that life is just life. We wake up and go about our routines in a very mundane fashion and then go to bed and start all over again. Oh my God! Has my life become normal?
