Why am I awake?  It’s past midnight.  I should be sound asleep – or at least asleep.  Instead I’m sitting in front of a computer. 

Actually, being after midnight I guess it’s official – HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

Took Monday and Tuesday off work this week to spend time with SG while she’s in town.  Unfortunately, she wasn’t feeling well today so we didn’t get to see her.  We did get together Sunday and Monday at least.  Sunday afternoon, we met up with SG and the M family at Remlinger Farms.  Simeon had a blast on the little canoe ride and was not happy when I took him out.  He was also a bit nervous about the train ride until it started moving. 

On Monday, as Ari, SG, Simeon and I were heading to the house in the evening, we decided to check out one of the new areas on the ridge (well, we assumed Simeon would agree if he had been awake to state an opinion).  We stopped at the model home, but wound up missing open hours by 5-10 minutes.  So, Ari and I decided to stop by on Tuesday and do a little window shopping.  I forgot how fun it can be to look at houses.  At least when you don’t feel the pressure of needing a house and haven’t already been looking for months.

I liked two layouts.  It’s interesting to see the change in what I want or what catches my eye.  I now have a desire for a separate living room area and would love to have a dedicated playroom upstairs (some changes to the loft are on my list of things to do around the house).   I was amazed at how much it bothered me that one layout did not have an easy passage way from the kitchen to the dining room. I’ve grown quite accustomed to having the laundryroom upstairs.

Anyway…lots of stuff to think about.  But not now.  Now it’s way too late and time to go upstairs and attempt to sleep. 

But before I go…a little Simeon stuff (the real reason I have any readers): 
He’s better than the grandparents and babysitter at turning on the tv.  Our system is a bit complex, but he knows which remotes to use and the buttons to press.  Still doesn’t always quite get the hang of pointing the remote in the right direction, but that’s ok, actually.
