We took our lunch over to the corner park today. We're all pretty shattered, due to toddlers getting up early (again), and a couple of worse days sickness-wise, but we needed a walk badly. The fresh air was lovely. It's still so warm and muggy here, but better than it has been.
Jenna lost her first tooth yesterday, and she's so proud of this gap! She confessed that she was anxious about looking funny to start with, but now she thinks she just looks grown up. (See the dark circles? When Martin went in to comfort Roo, he found Jenna with her arms wrapped around her wakeful baby sister, talking soothingly to her.)
Martin is fed up this week. Selling the car, and the stress of trying to find a reliable replacement, added on to the fact that there is *nothing* on the jobs front right now... No calls back or letters from any of the recent load of interviews, and no new offers of interviews, it is so frustrating and he's feeling quite disheartened about it all. He spent a long time crawling up and down the hill with children on his back anyhow, generous to a fault, and is now about ready to fall asleep in the laundry he's folding off the line!
