Even though the children are home on Spring Break this week, Merlin had a debate championship this morning. Ty encouraged me to go and see what Merlin does, but it sounds pretty boring and I had an important Pilates class this morning. I’ll take Merlin at his word that he is really good at it so there is no point in me going at all.
Last time he went I know he felt underdressed so I borrowed a suit for him from Karen. It belonged to one of her boys when he was Merlin’s age and Merlin looked so grown up in it.
Starling was happily playing secret agent up in her room with the binoculars and Robert’s camera and telephoto lens all afternoon, so after we got home from the gym it was just me and Hummus. I put him down for a nice long nap and I took a rare moment to myself and watched a few television shows that somehow got recorded by mistake. I don’t even know how to use the DVR. Finally, when I just couldn’t ignore Hummus’s screams anymore I brought him downstairs with me and decided to take a few laps around the backyard. I had totally forgotten that Ty would be dropping Merlin off and so I was wearing kind of a skimpy workout gear, but I am sure he didn’t even notice, we are just such close friends.
Great news! Merlin won again and he is very young to be a state champion or something. Anywhoo, I wonder if Ty would like to stop by for dinner sometime? I will have to ask him.
