Sporadic Spurts

Fear not, I have not abandoned the blog!

In between my normal doctor appointments I am now having to also visit the high-risk prenatal department twice a week to monitor The Mafioso Jr.  I've been having a hell of a time managing my sugar levels via my diet and I would be lying if I didn't admit that the stress of it all has me dog tired. 

The weather around these parts has also been unbearably hot.  We usually head off to the river in times like these, but it seems everyone else thinks that's an awesome idea.  Our usual play areas are crowded with people, making off-leash river romps next to impossible.

The hot weather however hasn't stopped a certain someone from using it to her advantage. . .

"I have to work on my tan.
I'm determined to finally land a spot in the
Miss Hawaii Tropic calender this year."

Luckily the boys aren't as self obsessed . . .two certain Mafiosos are always down for a game of catch whenever we are fortunate to find the nearby school yard empty.

"Alright! Let's do this!" shouts Gino.

Only this is a different game of catch.  As in Bruno runs to catch the ball and Gino runs to catch Bruno.

"You're not as fast as you think you are, Meathead!"

"I can still keep up with you!"

"Is that all you got?!"


"Watch it!!"

"That's why I'm the smart one!
I stay out of his way and have lightening reflexes!"
