Yes indeed...To it is for a week....celebrating a family member's 100th no less.
So, yesterday a big breakfast, a good skate, we got new shoes for Youngest and the man, got groceries and I went to some alternative dance last night. All in bed by 7:30 pm and up at 5am, trying not to get TOOOOO far around on the jet lag so we function better when we get back in Spain.
This morning I called out to the girls asking if they wanted to go walk the dog. They both said that yes, they would. A minute or two later they realised that his Chuckiness isn't with us. So we walked an imaginary dog instead. There are a lovely group of dog walkers I meet every morning in the summer and they are still here in the winter too....so off we went. Stopping at some poles for Chuck to pee and throwing some pinecones too. Eldest even wore here clown nose for the event....we were getting on the subway yesterday, unaware that it was the Santa Claus parade, and if you bought a clown nose kids rode free...so the kids had to wear them on the subway, they were totally game, and Eldest had hers in her pocket this morning. Kept her nose warmer!
I think I'm still cold from that walk. It's nicer out there at 6am in July, I must say. Today: visits, banks, schools, phones and drs.
Go big or go home!
