am i five?

sean is not reading dostoyevsky's the brothers karamozov. i just thought you all should know. the man reads a lot, he's even read that book already, but he's just not reading it now...so i don't think that it should be on his blog. if he wants to make a whole section about books he LIKES then i'll let it go.

day in the life of the oldroyds:
this past monday sean and i both had the day off. we had plans to go to nederland and just hang out in the mountains. sean, who usually gets up before me...kept on sleeping. which was fine. i had a quiet morning and just hung out with the animals. once sean got up, we just didn't feel as though we had the energy to take a trip, so instead sean worked on his car (which has issues again...but now are maybe fixed? we hope) i sat in a chair in the garage and just talked to him while kenna paced endlessly chasing the shadow of bugs on the concrete, while amos did whatever it is he does.. our neighbor came over from across the street (who had just recently painted our house) because he had a bit of paint on some windows that he was going to scrape off. he stayed for a while to try and help sean fix the car, but was also confused by the problem. while i was trying to entertain myself during all of the listening to the car and shadow chasing i found an unused flower pot and decided that i wanted to do some gardening. so after the car goings on had ended sean and i planted some seeds in a few pots. then sean had to leave to go into boulder (we live 25 minutes from the restaurant that he/i work at) and i was going to just watch a bit of TV while he was gone, but my cold completely overtook me and i fell asleep on the couch at 300pm when i woke up around 600pm sean had made dinner and was just waiting for me to wake up. so we ate dinner and watch the oscars (which we had previously taped).

not a terribly exciting day, but there's us.

p.s. if you read this it's probably because you read sean's blog. so when sean mentioned that he had asked the owners of the restaurant for more work to help with a down payment on a house... what he didn't say is that they responded by saying that they would like for us to take over the restaurant. it's a huge compliment, and we're not ready to or wanting to at this point. but i just thought i would clarify that for you. because knowing my husband he wouldn't ever have divulged that his boss has so much faith and trust in him that he would hand over his restaurant to him.

That was a great post!! I felt like I was sitting in the garage with you. I was entertained by the animals, bugs, neighbor, Sean, you, the smell of the garage, looking in some of the boxes that are still unpacked, go in get a cup of coffee and bring one out for you and Sean and talk a bit to the neighbor about painting and stuff. I wouldn't have helped with the seed planting but I would have said something profound like, planting seeds is a good thing to do when you don't know what to do, you are making an investment and a statement about tomorrow..." and other profound things that you probably would have stopped looked at me and told me to go get the MiracleGrow... Love you
