happy memorial day, all you fellow yanks! this weekend has been super busy for us and i'm just finding a free moment here this evening while tristan takes his last little nap. there is a bbq going on at our friends' mike and sara's house. i was there earlier, then quickly booted it back home so that tristan could take a nap and not be a cranky little boy. once he wakes up, we're heading on back there for dinner :) kind of a pain, but he's so particular about where he sleeps, the little stinker.
our anniversary dinner was lovely. thanks for your encouraging comments. i had such a peace that entire day about leaving tristan. my mom had emailed me a comment that her co-worker said to her, "well, he'll still have 2 arms and 2 legs when she gets back to him, even if he cries the whole time!" that also really helped put things in perspective. every time a tristan-thought popped into my brain, i simply banished it with the help of a delicious glass of red wine and my handsome hubby sitting across from me :) the food was delicious, as always and i couldn't believe that we found things to talk about other than our son! when we pulled into josh's parent's driveway after dinner, we could hear tristan crying from outside! yup, he pretty much cried the whole time with only a couple of interludes, but he was all in one piece and even gave his gran a couple of smiles before we took him home!
i so badly wanted someone to take an anniversary picture of us, just so i'd have something colorful to post on this blog, but of course we forgot. i just checked all of the pictures currently on the camera and none are tristanless, so there you have it. another blah looking post. there is a picture of a catfish that someone caught in our pond, but at the last minute i decided not to add it, since a blah looking blog is better than an ugly looking one :) josh is nearly done digging up the grass and so next weekend i'm looking forward to picking out some flowers! i'm for sure getting foxgloves, though nothing else is set in stone. i'm sure we'll be inspired once we arrive at the nursery.
oh, yes and a big HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY to my little sister cherie!! she is finally back home in canada after over 2 years abroad...mostly in scotland, but also galavanting around morocco, rwanda and most lately all over europe. hope you have a fun day today, sis and i'm so looking forward to seeing you
