Happy Easter (A Few Days Late)

You guys, we’re getting ready to move across an ocean. AN OCEAN! Next week, strangers are coming to my house to pack up every last wordily possession I have to put into crates which will ride across the Atlantic Ocean on a boat. Who knows if they’ll fall off and sink down to rest next to the Titanic. Let’s hope not.

Needless to say, I’ve been a little busy. I haven’t forgotten about this blog. Or you. Or Harry and his ridiculous excitement when any balloon is involved. The Easter Bunny stopped by this weekend to drop off a beach pail full of balloons and the pure glee on his face is enough to get me through his teenage years three times over. I’m serious.

I’m going to be popping in here with lots of photo heavy posts for the next month or two (of crazy moving) just because the time it takes to write down words is lost on things like packing underwear and calling hotels and sleeping. Bear with me, because when I finally have the time to write, I’m going to have time to write. And I’ll be in Germany/the rest of Europe.

PS “Bear with me” is the correct way to spell that. “Bare with me” would be an invitation to become naked with one another. Thanks, Google, for clearing that up for me.

This music video has 22 million views on Youtube, and I’m pretty sure, per Harry’s “Happy!” request, at least 6,000 were from us. Yesterday. The kid loves to dance. And in case you need a little happy dance in your life…

Now he’s constantly shouting combinations of numbers and colors (“Blue, 42”) and talking about his multimillion endorsement deal. I didn’t even think he knew what a Bronco was.

Snapshot of the Weekend

Weekend Snapshot | R.Simple Life

This weekend was very deserved in R.Simple House. Last week was especially rough, with lots of unexpected unfun. There was only problem Friday night – an unexpected and unwelcome visitor was on her way: Tropical Storm Karen.

I just had a feeling a hurricane would be making it’s way towards the Gulf Coast soon, so I wasn’t shocked when I woke up Friday morning to a Hurricane Watch, which was later upgraded to a Hurricane Warning. Not shocked, but not happy. Harry and I secured all our chairs and pots and wood outside, made sure we had water and food, and braced ourselves for Karen.

Luckily, life threw me a bone and downgraded Tropical Storm Karen to a Tropical Depression before she got here, instead of the Cat 1 Hurricane which was predicted. We had a few smatterings of rain yesterday, including a twenty minute downpour that started seconds after I got home from my run, so that makes me think life and I are getting along again.

Regardless of the (not-so) raging storm headed our way, I took it easy. Last week really kicked my butt, so I rested this weekend. I worked out hard, loved hard, and played hard… but that was the extent of my hard work. I laughed a lot with my boy, read lots of books, sang lots of songs, did an enormous amount of cuddling… and I even snuck in a nap. And today I feel refreshed and ready for a new week to kick my butt. But I’ve got a good attitude, so it’s not going to be that bad.

How was your weekend?

xoxo, Mallory
