Dear February

20 Feb

Hey! Thanks for meeting with me as if we are meeting for coffee. Right now I’m mainly just awaiting my 31st birthday in a little over a week. Thanks to the fire department’s upcoming fish fries, my Gabe-fixes have been a bit few and far between lately, but we’re making sure to set aside some time to celebrate the anniversary of my birth properly. The evening before, for example, his aunts will be having us over for steak and potatoes, per my request.

Speaking of birthdays, I’m pleased to report Logan’s was a happy one. On the day of he not only got things like monster trucks and the Pull My Finger game, but his Papa brought in pizza for his class treat, and two of his friends from school got to come to our family get together that evening. The main highlight for our 7-year-old, though, was going to Monster Jam at Ford Field a week and a half later. Before the main event we attended the Pit Party. Meeting Ryan Anderson of Son Uva Digger was a must for Logan, as was building his own wooden Grave Digger. Come the actual show, Son Uva Digger and Grave Digger did NOT disappoint! The latter even won the overall event after crushing Two-Wheel and Freestyle. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from our adventure:

After coming home from Detroit, Logan had fun via Coming Home at his school, haha. Sure, the first day of Spirit Week, Pajama Day, was thwarted by a snow day (oh darn 😉 ), but Logan– as well as my Build a Bear buddy Bridget– still enjoyed dressing up the duration of the week, as you can see:

Several other things happened at Logan’s school this month, starting with the annual Box Top contest and Penny War– we should know who won what sometime next week. Come Valentine’s Day Logan and I attended “Muffins with Mom” in the morning, and that afternoon he had his class party where he, unsurprisingly, gave out Monster Jam valentines to his classmates, haha. I know it’s not school related, but it seems worth noting that the boys and I went out to eat at the little restaurant here in town that evening; not only is Logan a big fan, Gabe and I didn’t want to go anywhere too crowded. But back to the little viking! Thanks to the balanced calendar, he has this week off and–dentist appointment this afternoon aside–he is a very happy kid.

With any luck I’ll be able to keep making a dent reading Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moira Fowley-Doyle even though I don’t have the house to myself as much right now. For the record, I finished the Splintered series by the end of January, and I read Queen of Babble by Meg Cabot since then. As for my own writing, my resolution withered and died like many that came before it. I still intend to work on my book idea as motivation strikes, but the schedule thing just didn’t work well for me.

Also not working very well for me? Most of my shows being on a brief hiatus due to the Winter Olympics 😛 The three episodes of Jane the Virgin between Dear January and now were NOT enough, especially now that “Jafael” is rekindling. But at least I still have Ink Master and Top Chef, right? In case you’re wondering, I’m rooting for Deanna on the former and Carrie on the latter. As for the Olympics, I don’t follow them all that much to root for anyone. #SorryNotSorry.

Much like television in the evenings, I don’t have anything entertaining to offer you anymore, lol. I will leave you with a little request though if you’re the praying type. Gabe’s great aunt passed away suddenly over the weekend, so his dad’s side of the family could use whatever thoughts and prayers you’re willing to send their way. We appreciate them, and I appreciate you reading this monthly update of mine.

Until next time!
Sincerely, Kate ~!~
