'Tis the season...
...to start exercising like a madwoman so I don't scare small children during the warmer, remove more clothes/ show more skin summer months. For the foreseeable future, I plan on spending quite a lot of time with Mr. Billy Blanks.
Looks like we'll be taking another trip to the Dutch side of the state next month for Tulip Time. Although I have historically made it my mission to AVOID West Michigan during tulip season, my grandparents (on my mom's side) will be in town that weekend, and I'm truly excited to see them again. Furthermore, we're having a "family picnic" or some crazy thing and it looks like the Garcias (ie, my daughter and family) will be able to make it. I haven't seen Amanda in...wow, a year and a half now?...because of the circumstances surrounding our situation (which have been well-documented previously on this very blog; in short, though, because it's too damn hard to continue to bite my tongue when she SHOULD have been told the truth so long ago); however, I also need to make sure that I keep our relationship strong (after all, the secret will come out eventually, and I don't want to waste the trust, love and friendship that I've spent years building up between Amanda and me).
Other than that...everything is going great. One usual thing to note: the other day, I was singing "You Are My Sunshine" to the kids--until Luc, the 2 year old, reached out and put his hand over my mouth. Fabulous...even a toddler can recognize my horrible lack of tune and pitch.
(For the record, I continue to blame the recurring ear infections I had as a child for my tone-deafness.)
