Wanted: Skerry Sailing Dinghy

I can think of at least 15 reasons why I need this classic Skerry sailing dinghy. Rich wants us to buy a kit and build it, but I think we have a list of existing projects that is long enough to keep us busy for years. But it's so cute. Kits seem to go for anywhere from around $1,500 to around $5,000.

Work is till progressing on the Catalina and I cross my fingers that it will be ready in time for summer. I don't know if I mentioned it, but Hurricane Sandy did quite a number on the boat and tons of repairs were needed. So trying to look on the bright side, it's a perfect excuse to upgrade some stuff!

Hump Day

Took advantage of a girls night in, by heading to bed early after a couple of cutthroat rounds of air hockey. Nothing better than cuddling up in bed watching TV and slowly drift off to bed. I've been so sleepy this whole week, and I have had to rush in to work after snoozing one to many times. I hate that mad dash in the morning, and most of all, I hate that I have to rush Cami. Hopefully summer will be here soon—like most people, I do so much better when it's bright, sunny and warm out!

Only another six weeks until mommy and Stickan will be here for a couple of weeks to visit and take care of Cami. My babysitter is having baby #three, so thankfully, mom came to the rescue and will be our nanny for four weeks. Thank god for wonderful parents!

Still trying to find the best airfare to Sweden for the summer.  I can't believe I haven't been home for two years—it's definitely time for a visit. I think July 12-27 will be the magic dates, but we still need to actually book. I can't believe that you have to pay almost a full adult fare for a 3 year old. No wonder a European trip gets expensive when you have kids. But we have about one hundred gazillion AMEX points, so I hope we can use at least some of those toward the trip.

Nighty nite, sweet friends.

Breaking 80

It's just a perfect day.

1. Cami woke up in a brilliant mood [for once] and warmed my heart by exclaiming "you are so beautiful mommy!" (me in bed head and wrinkled pjs)
2. It finally went above 80 degrees out—summer here I come! Today was actually the year time sine Sept 14 of last year that it is over 80 degrees out!
3. It's Free Cone Day at Ben and Jerry's and I'm meeting Rich and Cami for the season's first ice cream date.
4. I'm wearing my new crested suede loafers. Feeling all pretty, and stuff.
