Tory’s Friday Ramblings (10/3/14)

Happy Friday everyone. I know, it’s been a few weeks and I’m sorry. I just really haven’t had much to talk about. I still don’t have much, but I’ll ramble on for a bit anyway.

Pupocalypse

When last we posted, Rue was just about to join the house. She’s now a member of the family. This is a picture from this morning:

Here’s from the first day we had her:

2014-09-12 20.23.04Hard to tell, but she’s grown a LOT since we first got her. She’s actually got some heft to her and lord knows her legs are longer.

Children

Going camping this weekend with the boy. First camp out of the year for the Boy Scouts. On a good note, we finally broke down and bought a tent so we could stop borrowing the pack’s. It’s taller and bigger than the borrowed one, which will be nice. It’s pretty easy to put up too, thank goodness. Not sure how the rain sheet goes on on top, but I’ll get someone to help me figure it out.

Pixie loves having her picture taken and will, like her brother did before her, grab my phone and say, “Take a picture, Mommy.” Here’s one from this morning:

2014-10-03 04.53.19She’s cute and her hair is awesome. You get it even a little damp (aka walk out in the Florida humidity) and it goes aalllllll curly and stuff. Really, really springy sproingy spiral curls. Don’t have a good picture unfortunately.

She is also becoming a bit of a smart aleck. I was trying to eat and get to scouts with Shrimp on Monday. She hadn’t eaten any of her sandwich, just her chips, and I told her she hadn’t even touched her sandwich. So…she reached out and tapped the sandwich.

Sigh. I wonder where she gets that from. God, I get how grandkids are a parents’ revenge now. I’m so sorry, Mommy.

Blondie is still blondie. Silly and adorable. She transformed from Cousin It (aka bangs down to her nose) back into herself last weekend courtesy of a trim.

And for the first time, we finally bought them clothes from the girls aisle, rather than the toddler/baby rack.

Don’t look much alike, do they? Sigh.

Writing

Still waiting to hear whether or not my rewrite on Locked is a go or no go. Argh. Still can’t get much purchase on Carved’s rewrite, but I’ve definitely revised the characters themselves. Sarah actually gained a personality and a life of her own rather than being the timid little mouse.

Conclusion

That’s pretty much it. Hope you have a great weekend. I’ll let you know how the camp-out went!
