we are moving. soon. our truck, packed with everything we own, was taken away today. our kids are on our back lawn, having a party with their friends. we have been packing, cleaning, and arranging for days. and amidst it all, my toes are pretty. a new salon opened in town. today. and brock treated me to a pedicure there. it turns out that he has been checking it regularly to see if it was open. and today was the day. he made an appointment, gave me the money, and told me to go. he is the best. if i haven't mentioned that before, i definitely should have. and the facts are that i am undeserving of him. but i have him anyway. and i am grateful. the pedicure was heavenly. they had a massage chair/foot spa combo. it was so relaxing that i couldn't get up, and sat there for another 10 minutes after she had finished my toes. she said i could. and normally i wouldn't have. but it felt so good after days of lifting and heaving and dirt and grime. i love brock.
here is the party on the back lawn. maika is here from japan. we picked her up at the airport yesterday.
at 13 months, gracie has decided that she is 2. but that is a subject for another post.
