Hello Dear Readers (and you both know who you are!)

Sorry for the absence.  It's been a very busy month (+) filled with family visits, outings, a work "promotion" (more on that later I promise), an exchange student, several trips to the airport, etc etc.

This past weekend, however, is worthy of note because, for the first time that I can remember, my darling daughter and I were home alone.

We had the perfect two-girl day on Saturday which consisted of:

A great early morning, humidity-free run
A trip to the city market
A trip to the record store
Harry Potter
Indian food for dinner
Dyeing my hair pink (not ALL of it, just part of it, but I have to say, part of me wishes I lived the kind of life where I could dye the whole thing pink and that would just be A-Ok)

It was blissful and divine.  And maybe the very bestest part was when I overheard her say to her friend on the phone "yeah, that sounds like fun, but I'm busy tonight hanging out with my mom."

She loves me.  She really loves me!   sniff sniff
