Long time since you heard from me personally, hey? Our family is doing… as well as we can, I guess. We are getting bigger and bigger (literally!) and there has been a lot of stuff happening.
Thank goodness the weather is cooling off a bit – I’d be sweltering in heat with this big baby and all this weight on me.
It’s starting to drive me crazy!
Anyway, I’m on my way now to check and see how things are going at Los Sueños, and to pick up my dividends. Already got my money from the theatre and the Bistro.
“Hey Isaac. Slow day?”
“You guys don’t mind if I work here, do you? I gotta do a blog entry.”
So let’s see…
I got a lot of nice gifts from the kids when they got back from China.
“I loooove the buddha thing!”
“This? Meh. Garrick better not try and put that in our bedroom.”
Garrick got himself a juice kegger so he can be like the cool kids.
Lulu had some troubles with school. She is a good student and such a quiet and shy girl, I hardly ever lay eyes on her, so this was unusual.
“Please Aunt Sharona, I’ll do better I promise, just let me go to school today!”
“So I skipped school and now you’re grounding me and I can’t go?! That doesn’t make any sense.”
“Uncle Garrick, I just wanna go to school! Will you drive me?”
I think the gnomes keep breaking the shower. I’ll blame it on them anyway.
Willow: ‘Yes, it was them.’
We had some lovely family jams when Tegan got back, and finally she was able to join in on her violin!!
Well, kinda. If you call that screeching racket music.
Dad: “Tegan, why can’t you just play the same song we’re playing?!”
As you know, Jemma had a baby girl, Jovanna.
And my baby boy is all grown up! He is super handsome. Where did he get that body all of a sudden? And who told him he could go at the juice keg?
“Okay, you gotta hoist up with me so you aren’t so heavy. Ready? 1 – 2 – LIFT!”
Grayson: “That was awesome.”
Aubrey: “My turn!”
“Okay Grayson, I think he is drunk already. Don’t let him have any more.”
“We are awesome.”
I don’t know what is going on with Jemma, but it seems she is in a post-pardom depression. Of course a big part of it could be Stevan too. Looks like Garrick and I will have to have a good talk with that boy. Or gift him a swift kick in the arse, as our friend Buffy suggested.
Tegan wrote more letters to Tristan since she got back from China.
And has been checking the mail to see if he will ever return her letter.
Unfortunately, he finally did. 😦
Yes, that’s right, Tegan. You hone up on your kicking skills because you might need them for Stevan and Tristan.
Time to break for lunch.
And a bit of piano-playing to stretch my legs.
Now on to the, uhh, interesting news.
Garrick gets the focus and he is yelling. “SHARONA!!!”
“Uhh, what’s happening, Garrick? And what are you doing in Jemma’s room?”
“I just came to check on her and well, um….”
“Garrick, are you aging?”
“I think so!”
“OW! My back!”
“Garrick, you’re old! How could you not know this would happen?”
“I dunno! Is my hair gone limp? I feel like my hair is limp.”
“Yes, it’s gone limp. And I bet something else is gone limp too. How are we going to have ten kids now?”
“I’ll think of something.”
“Uncle Garrick, what happened?”
“Just some technical difficulties. Nothing I can’t fix, not to worry.”
“Daddy, does this mean your quest for ten kids is over now?”
“Dag dag! Not at all!”
“So I guess baby #5 will be the last one, huh Garrick?”
“We’ll see about that.”
BONUS VIDEO #1: See? I told you Tegan could jam with the family. Kinda.
BONUS VIDEO #2: Tegan can sing with the family too! Kinda.
