Out With the Old…
In addition to attending 2 birthday parties, a dinner party, and a Father’s Day BBQ this weekend, the Din family also found time to say goodbye to some of the old things in our life….
Because Maya and I bought him a new one for Father’s Day:
We are hoping that Ali’s co-workers won’t laugh at him as much now that he’ll be pulling the carrot sticks, apple slices, yogurt, and diagonally sliced turkey sandwiches I pack him out of his new manly black bag.
But don’t worry co-workers, you still have the opportunity to laugh at his lattes and “ancient” 3G iPhone instead.
2. I got over my fear of domesticity for a few minutes this weekend to enter Z Gallerie to continue the search for a replacement for this pretty but rather blah picture:
And was thrilled when Ali and I both agreed we like this one:
Are there any interior designers out there who can tell me if the blue in this picture will look okay against chocolate-brown walls? I don’t excel in home decor to make the decision myself.
3. This next goodbye is one that will hopefully benefit us all…I’ve never excelled at grammar and figured it was high time to improve my comma placement. So imagine my surprise when I randomly ran into the book Grammar Sucks at Borders this weekend:
Despite the tacky and somewhat offensive title, I do believe it will help me finally learn if a period goes inside or outside of a parenthesis, and if it + is = it’s.
No, I still have no idea when to use an apostrophe but I have high hopes that I will be writing gooder soon.
4. The Princess bike our nanny so generously bought Maya 3 years ago found a new home with one of Mrs. Maria’s friend’s daughters:
Now I’m not sure if I’m just one of those moms who thinks her kid is amazingly advanced but I do believe that riding without training wheels at 5-years-old is pretty impressive. But please do correct me if I’m wrong.
I dare you.
