Avoiding Crisis

a storm is coming, i’m sure…

with 2 comments

but for now, it’s rather calm.

The first week of 2008 has been rather quiet.  Well, as quiet as it could be with 2 kids at home on summer break.  Maybe quiet isn’t the right adjective, maybe uneventful is a better word to describe 2008 thus far.  Yes, I think that makes more sense as this house has been anything BUT quiet.

And things probably have been uneventful because a) I’m without a car and therefore sticking close to home or only as far as I can get on a bicycle, b) most of our friends are away at the Argentine/Uruguayan beaches or in the States visiting family and c) we are leaving for a 5 week vacation to the US in 7 days and are kinda just sitting around waiting for that to happen.  Kinda like how after Christmas I was just sitting around waiting for the New Year to begin. (I seem to be doing a lot of sitting around and waiting for something to happen.)

I’m thinking I should just enjoy and cherish whatever downtime comes my way in 2008 seeing how with the upcoming move, this year will be anything BUT uneventful.  I’m sure this is just the calm before the storm, a very very big storm.

We do have a few eventful things going on before we leave on Friday (and I’ll write more about our vacation soon) and one of them includes Owen’s 3rd birthday.  I can’t believe that he’s turning 3!  And yet, at the same time, I so absolutely can.  Does that make any sense?

So, back to the birthday and the most important detail of the whole thing: the cake.  Okay, so maybe Owen is the most important aspect of the whole birthday celebration because without him there would be no birthday and therefore no cake, but the cake comes pretty close.
I’ve decided to try my hand at making a dinosaur.  I’m going to use this as a guide and see what happens.  Cross your fingers, wish me luck, go find a four leaf clover, pick up a penny (but only if it’s heads up), rub a rabbits foot and do about anything else that will give me good cake making karma.  I’ll post pictures on Sun night, I promise.

Off to enjoy the uneventful day we have planned.  Enjoy yours.

  2. The cake turned out great! Both of my girls thought it was cool, especially since it was 3D.
