the dark end of a tunnel. Well, those days are behind us. I won't be having a baby in January, but Hubband won't be losing his job either. At least not for the next six months. That also means that we won't be moving. For now. Hubband's big test is behind him. He is back at work, and home at night. He gets his results in October.
My tunnel is looking more like this one.
In fact, we are all fairly healthy and happy. I went to the coast two weekends ago, with my mother. I have pictures. (They are the ones included here.) Hubband and I went to Seattle last weekend for his sister's wedding. I don't have pictures. And Hubband and Samuel have a daddy/son weekend planned amongst the giant redwoods. There probably won't be proper pictures of that either. Jonah's 'off track' at his year round school. Cate is a girl who can't say 'yes,' but has mastered 'no.' We scrapped a family trip to "the Mouse Castle" (our grown-up code word for Disneyland) because we have decided to keep Samuel in a private pre-school, and we are going to need all of our money for that.
Hopefully, I will be back here in a few days with something clever to say. Seattle was pretty interesting. I was a black hole for cell phones, I met a guy with a handle bar mustache, and I heard an awesome band playing in a stairwell. I might have enough there to work with. Until then, enjoy the pictures of the Mendocino (California) Coast.

Lunch. At this place.
And flowers in the garden.
Hydrangeas grow so well in that climate.
The whole garden was amazing.
Unfortunately, Blogger keeps turning this photo on its side. You'll just have to trust me.
