After taking just over three months off… longest time off perhaps ever without a looming deadline of some significance, I am now back at work. The time off was initially a whirlwind but ended in some very quiet, solitary time. Treehouser has been able to stay home for the remainder of the month with the new babe. They are so close, it’s incredibly sweet. Sloane will start daycare with her brother this week…so, changes are afoot…again. Daddy will do some house fixes, go to Seattle for a minute then home again before driving off to another treehouse later this month in VA. So, solo parenting for two coming up…
Spring has been flirting with us while winter weather keeps checking back in…buds abound then snow.. we are looking forward to warmer weather and getting outside some more. We have started an initiative to make new friends and expand time with current friends… so, dinner parties, lunch outings have been on the agenda. We went to Natural history museum in The City with another family for a SUPER fun day, had dinner with a Seattle local and found a new family to play with in town. We are a buzz with the new found fun.
Hopefully, pix to come of outside fun and entertainment coming right up…

It’s been quite the summer- full of boxes, tape, paint, dust, sweat and crazy. My work has been absolutely nuts with two interns, a trip to MIT and one billion meetings while my home has been a limbo of workspace … Continue reading
We passed around the viruses through the house such that it wasn’t until last weekend that we really felt up to much more than a couch lounge. SX and I were really excited because our daycare holds occasional date-nights that we so far have been unable to utilize due to travel schedules. So, last Friday we were set to have some alone time for the first time in…?
On my way out the door for our dinner, I foolishly checked my email and found that our landlord is entertaining an offer from a developer which may lead to an eventual sale. So, our date night ended up being a discussion about
- Where should we move?
- Sadness about 14 acres of beautiful wooded animal habitat going away to fit 10 houses
While we did appreciate being Hagan-free to discuss such big topics, it wasn’t exactly the date-night we had in mind.
We then grabbed Hagan and proceeded to enjoy the rest of the weekend…which promptly fell apart and poor Hagan ended up on the couch again with a tummy bug.
We basically made more cookies and got Hagan hooked on puzzles when he was finally up and about.
Everything was back to normal just in time for the Tuesday work slog… ah well…. perhaps next weekend we can drum up some out of the house fun times.
