Only a little time for a quick post tonight. I'm trying to make a more concentrated effort to keep up with this blog a little better. Dharma has been updating hers almost every day and if she can do it, I should be able to. You see, I haven't mentioned this yet, but Dharma is going to have a baby and is feeling mighty poorly right about now. That's right! She's pregnant! And as she's only about 6 weeks along, she's feeling nauseated an awful lot. But she's still keeping up with her blog and has inspired me to try and do the same. I may not have a toddler and day-to-day nausea to deal with, but I do have a broken computer and limited access to the Internet as my own challenges.
Today was our 14th Wedding Anniversary. We celebrated first by dissolving helplessly into puddles at Man-Cub's penultimate baseball game. Why anyone would expect 7-year-old boys to tear around in 100 degrees of baking-hot sun and 70% humidity without dropping like flies is beyond me, but they did. We managed to find a shady spot to spectate from, but still, it was icky.
After the game, we dumped the kids off at my mother's, then headed into Philly for dinner. We went to Marrakesh, a Moroccan place down an alley off of South Street. We sat on low, softly-carpeted, cushioned benches, had our hands washed with warm, rose-scented water (secretly my favorite part), and ate dish after dish of exotic, delicious food with our fingers. They actually washed our hands twice with the rosewater and now I'm thinking of finding ways to use it around the house. On our way out of the restaurant, we were gratified to see the temperature had dropped about 15 degrees and thunderstorms were brewing. Hopefully, this horrid heatwave is over.
So, I'm off to bed. I have to try and get some sleep tonight. I haven't been sleeping well and it's really disrupting my daily schedule. I'm behind on laundry and chores and really need to get myself a manicure, pedicure and some new clothes. I have a wedding to sing in this weekend and I'd like to look somewhat professional so's I can fool 'em all. Besides, with my feet showing so much in this hot weather, it'd be nice if they didn't look like Frodo Baggins'.
