So it’s been a while. A long while. I’ve been busy, and also kind of uninspired. But I thought for purposes of, well, for no reason whatsoever, that I would write something in my blog.
So there you have it. I wrote in my blog. See you in a couple months.
Ok. I know. My public needs more. (ha!)
So I’ll get you caught up on what’s been happening at Casa Clem…
The kids are alright. They’re doing the school thing. Grace is finishing up the spring soccer season – they are 4-1-2 I think. I hate sitting on the sidelines though. I’m very critical of the coaches. There’s room to be. It makes me want to jump up, push them aside, and try to teach the kids something – ANYTHING. These guys are worried only about which field the next game is on, and whether there will be enough kids at the next practice. They worry about these things DURING THE GAME – while wandering around paying no attention at all. UGH. Anyway. Grace has said she wants to play Field Hockey and Lacrosse (be still my heart!). She also wants to dance again, thanks to Zoe (our somewhat adopted daughter – though that would make the fact that she’s Brady’s girlfriend kinda creepy) and her recent recital. Grace has the bug again, and I think that’s great – would love to see her back up on stage.
Brady. (hold on a sec while I remind myself what it was like to be a 15 year old boy…… ). He has been thru a LOT of shit in the past 12 months. I won’t go into details, but each time he has impressed me with his reaction and/or recovery. (though obviously, it sometimes took a while!). And believe it or not – he actually asks my advice now. Every time that happens I look around for the hidden camera. He really enjoyed playing for the JV Tennis Team this year. Said he likes it more than football! Then he blew out his ankle in gym class and missed the last half of the season. Oh well. Kid has been in the emergency room 5 times in 15 years. Not sure what the average is – but that’s more times than me and Kelly combined.
So yeah – kids. Check.
My business is starting to pick up. I’m wrapping up websites and marketing plans for several clients, and so far they seem to just keep coming at a steady pace. We’ll see if i can maintain. On the photography front – Kelly and I will be shooting a wedding in a couple weeks. Kinda nervous about that I guess, but we’ll see how it goes. We also had a hanging last month, and sold a photo (yay us! and thanks M&J!). We’ve been asked to hang again, but it’s the same day as the wedding, so maybe not.
Blah blah blah. ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz…z…z………z
Hey wake up! We’re going to Italy.
No. Not you – WE. Us. Me and mine. I’m not going to say when – because then all the stalkers out there (yes you) will know we’re gone and will hide in my house and read my porno magazines. Ew. And also: just ew. But yeah. We’re taking the kids, and we’re bringing Kelly’s mother and aunt. (I’ll wait for you to stop laughing). Actually, if I had to bring someone’s mother-in-law and aunt-in-law – well, it would be them :) We’re also going with Uncle Numpty (aka Nickerson) and his beautiful bride – and two members of her family – who are simply coming to serve as a buffer between me and The Numpty. I just hate the smell of bologna. (there are 40 people who read my blog – and 30 of them are going “WTF?” right now). Mark and I will be doing some research and making some connections for Beyond Travel. That, of course, means that we’ll be stopping at every winery we can find under the guise of “hey – we own a travel company and maybe we’ll send you clients if you give us free wine”. Yeah. Dat’l work. Even if it doesn’t, I hope that we’ll be able to do a few decent blog entries from abroad over at Beyond Travel.
So there’s my blog-about-nothing. Consider it one of those letters people put in their christmas card that tells you that they had their boil lanced and that awful wart removed. OK, maybe not that bad.
Hope to be back on these pages before the trip – but if not – well, too bad.
And for the record, I already miss “Modern Family”. Actually I only miss Gloria, but, yeah.Tags:beyond travel, italy, kids, Modern Family, numpty, photography, seinfeld, websites
