Best baby award/fall plans

I know it's terrible to judge a person under the age of 12 months, but I swear that Melanie's baby boy is the sweetest most easy-going baby ever! He is able to entertain himself, and he doesn't seem to get irritated at much of anything. I really wish for one like that. I worry about us losing our shit over a screamer...

So in the past week we've spent shitload on SP concert tickets, although some of them were bought for other attendees. It should be something to look forward to in the fall. A road trip to Philadelphia followed by one to Asheville for the venerable NP and then to Atlanta again for SP, and possibly the NPs. I'd like to swing a visit to my granny's as well. I don't know what the venue in Philadelphia is like. They're playing the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. That should be a cool place to go around Halloween.

Summer so far

Well July 4th has come and gone, so in the eyes of merchants, it's the end of summer. I think that notion is ridiculous, but I am worried about not getting many more summer activities/memories in before the end. We've been to the g-parents' pool once. We've been to the farmers market a few times, and I'm sure we'll go again b/c my snuggs is a semi-professional canner. She lives for the ping.
But I can't help but long for the summer of schooldays' past. When you had a lazy break that was filled with (elementary era) library reading lists, pool time, sleepovers, etc. High school era - sleepovers, beach/pool time, MOVIE time, getting high/drunk time. College era - pool time, kid time, getting high time, sex... Not that none of these activities occur now that we're responsible adults. It's just a different structure and a SCHEDULE to always deal with. Mon-Fri 9ish -5ish for me, whenever for L, yard work 1X week, coozles all the time. I do wish for the days like we had in Wilmington when the only real thing we had to do was some schoolwork, class face time, etc.

But it is exciting in its own way to have your own house to do anything you want in. To have a yard you're responsible for, etc.

My birthday will be upon me before I know it. I saw a 30th b-day card in Wal-Mart the other day and was none too pleased. I hope I don't get any of those!! :(
I guess it's not that big of a deal to turn 30. I am usually not a vain person, but for some reason this one has me a little worried. Oh well, it'll come and go like they all do and I'll feel the same I'm sure.

I rediscovered a Sahara Hotnights CD today that we had never burned onto our Ipods. It's really been the highlight of my day. I also was able to download Burning Up by Madonna yesterday. I love a good dance song!
