The Spotster has mastered forward motion! The baby gates are back in service! And Buzz is so excited she can hardly sit still. OK, so she generally doesn't sit still anyway, but this definitely isn't helping. And the little 'un is quite pleased with herself too.
So now I'm going through the house again, reviewing anything below two feet above ground that can't go into her mouth. Something else to do while I attempt to finish a little of the spring cleanout I started during Spring Break. I had to actually look back at the calendar to remember what I did for the two weeks since then, since it passed in such a blur. There were quite a few highlights: egg hunts at church and at Grandma and Grandpa's, our last NSO concert of the season (a marvelous Deutsch Requiem), turning 37 (for the first time), and surviving my first Blue & Gold Banquet with the Cub Scouts ("Jurassic Pack"). We did manage to clean out the garage and get a bunch of stuff given away. Now I have exactly two weeks before my mom comes to finish cleaning out the rest of the house and plant something in the front yard, which underwent a major slash-and-burn event last weekend--well, I didn't actually burn anything, but I dug out and tossed most of those nasty overgrown lion's mane grass things that could have been the inspiration for the Venomous Tentacula. As far as I know they haven't grabbed any people yet, but I wouldn't be surprised to find they've snagged a few garden tools or small animals by the time I get the last of them out. Wish me luck.
