Cable Guy

This year Mark was blessed with tenure and a promotion. While the Board of Regents voted to approve in February the benefits did not come until July...what a wait!

So, to celebrate this event we upgraded to a DVR!

I can't say enough about it...I have already taped Project Runway and Shear Genius and watched both...commercial free...pausing to take care of Noah...and Dixie.

What makes this most memorable is Noah. He is beginning to recognize people...and longs to be held by them. So...the cable guy looked like my brother...who just visited. Noah cried and fussed...reaching for the cable guy! So much so that I had to leave the room with him.

Poor Noah, missed his Uncle Larry already! I hate to see daycare drop-offs for Mark in two weeks!

How I Spent My Summer Vacation

This summer Mark and I chose to stay home. To relax. To gather ourselves after beginning such an amazing new chapter in our lives. With these plans came wonderful visits from family.

My parents came.

Mark's family came.

My brother came.

Helen will be here in two weeks.

My house has been filled with laughter and noise.

I am blessed...I have had a great summer.
