Wild Thing

I'm playing around with my blog layout. The black argyle looking layout that I've had for the past year seemed a little too harsh to host pictures of my sweet girl. But then the pastels look too frou-frou to me. In the end, it doesn't much matter, but I'll still continue to play with it from time to time as E is asleep.

Timmy got to play wild cat yesterday. We went to Sam's Club last night to pick up some food to donate to the church (they're feeding 10 families this summer whose children relied on the free lunch program through school for breakfast and lunch). When we came home, we turned the corner onto the walkway in front of our apartment, and were met by a very dirty white cat who meowed at us. You know that feeling when you see someone out of context? Like when you see your high school friends randomly at your church in your new hometown...familiar face in unfamiliar circumstances? That's how I felt. I recognize that cat. Wait a minute! That's my cat. My indoor cat! He had been out for two hours and I guess when he heard the Subaru pull up he decided to meet us. He obviously escaped when we left, but neither of us saw him. I'm actually surprised he didn't go too far or run far, far away (either extreme), especially since the big doggie next door was out running around when we left. But you should have seen him when we brought him inside. Besides being dirty, Timmy was very cocky, with an "I'm invincible" attitude. That is, until he was hungry.

Coco was lonely. He was glad when Timmy came back inside.

I'm playing around with the idea of staying in Texas for three weeks when we come for the wedding in July. Eli doesn't get any time off, so it would otherwise be a quick trip--a long trip with a baby who needs changing and needs to eat every 2-3 hours. But, Eli's turning around and coming back to Texas for a soccer game at the end of July, so instead of making that trip twice in four days, I can make it twice in three weeks. There's a lot I would need to do before I go, since the week I come back will be the week before I start my new job. In fact, I think there's a 2-day teacher orientation that week. I would also have to see if the pediatrician will schedule her 2-month appointment for the week before I leave, even though that will only be 2 weeks after her already late 1-month appointment. We'll see next week if we can get everything to work out.

Anyway, those are my pointless thoughts for today.

I like the looks of your blog - especially the pic of "E". Such a sweetie. It sounds like parenting is coming together for you and Eli. I knew it would!
