Starling is just so very, very excited to be playing soccer. She was on a team with Coach Mari but it was totally unfair how Coach Mari favored all the children over the children who are good at soccer (like Starling) so I called the league and had her changed to a team coached by her best friend Vivian’s dad. He had better let her play much more or he will be hearing from me.
I think Starling is missing her Daddy a little too. I spoke to him last night and he is mountain biking this week. I knew it had something to do with mountains!
Röbert will be home tomorrow, and not a moment too soon! I can’t wait to get a few seconds to myself, aside from the hours that the children are all in school every day. I met someone at the supermarket this week who home schools her 5 children. Have you ever heard of that? It is absolutely nuts! They are home with her all of the time. Like summer year round. Yikes!
For some reason our neighbor Nancy gave Merlin one of her son’s old costumes. We are not speaking so I can’t even ask what the hell she was thinking. I came home from the gym and Merlin was running around absolutely wild in it! I had left him home because the gymnastics class I have Starling in while I do my Pilates would not be fun for him, no matter what he says! Anyway, I waited until he fell asleep and threw that ratty old costume away. I think the time may have come for me to give Nancy Sullivan a piece of my mind!
