Then there was the high school graduation of Isaac. We thought it might never arrive, not because of any academic deficiency on his part but due to delayed dates after a harsh winter with an abundance of snow days. Arrive it did and there was much gladness.
Then a couple weeks later there was an official East Coast meeting of The Freaks in the Box Club (aka blogger meet-up) during which Calypso was introduced to her very first freaks in the box and inducted into the club. Susie, her hubby Ratburn, AndyT13, and his lovely wife, along with Calypso and myself all converged on New Brunswick, NJ to watch Talented Freak Progeny and many others compete in a west coast swing dance competition. A good time was had by all and Calypso seemed to fit in well with the Freaks. It may have helped that she found my blog a couple months ago and has excavated it heavily. Her extensive research into the care and feeding of Freaks in the Box permitted for effective communication with such.
Other goings on have included expansion of the bird sanctuary that is our backyard, continued slow work on the bathroom, undertaking a decrapification process for Chez Lime, yoga teacher training weekends, a week-long vacation in Maryland, and a trip to Fox Chase Cancer Center wherein two out of three medical tests confirm I have officially been cancer-free for a year. Yay!!!! The final test is to be performed next month after another lovely round of dietary purgatory during which the list of what I may eat is considerably shorter than what I may not eat. This will take place just after we move Diana to Georgia. Oh, and I hope to find a new job and visit Boston as well before summer is through. Busy, busy, busy!
