I Am Reading A Book

I am reading a book.
It is called, The Principles of Uncertainty by Maira Kalman. It is a good book. I will probably finish reading it, if it doesn’t disappear.
Inside the book are many paintings of things that have delighted Maira. For example, a chair, a hat,

Griffin Potty Training

I have been only working half/time on potty training. Last night we were at a restaurant and Griffin says, “I gotta go potty.”
I take him to the urinal and he goes, standing up.
Then this morning he tells me he has to go poo – and sure enough he does.
Yeah. But now I gotta help him every time he says he gots to go.
Oh well. He’s growing up.

I picked up glasses today. I got bi-focals. It kind of sucks, but they do make reading better. When I walk with them the world feels like its spinning and it’s difficult to know what’s coming next. And for the time being, they kind of give me a headache.
Addie says that they make me look like a wizard.
There’s a good kid.

About a month ago I asked Griffin, “Where did you come from?”
He thought about it and then said, “A shopping cart. Daddy pay money for me.”

We did Disney and it was great. I was worried about the little boy having fun, but he had a blast and skipped naptime completely. LJ got to ride Space Mountain.
Addie had a great time as well. I took her back to the magic kingdom last night and it was fun. The fireworks were really worth being sleepy this AM.
Again, I have pics, but I can’t put them up right now.

Tonight I write from DIsney’s Contemporary Resort where Laura is giving a talk and we are taking a vacation. The last two days we stayed at a Hilton Grand Vacations resort for a great deal and had a really wonderful time. We also went and visited Sea world.
I hope to post some good pictures of the adventure at some point. However, I am traveling without my computer so getting the images from the camera to the internet is all but impossible. We have been doing a lot of swimming …

Today is my birthday.
We went into Zagreb and walked around the market. It was great. Everyone is so firendly. They all love kids and people stop and jibber at Griffin and Addie, and when I say that we speak English they just wave their hands make some joke and keep on jibberishing away.
The flower market was a wonderful welcome to a taste of what spring will be like. Refreshing aromas and bouquets surrounded us, flowers on all sides sold by people who cared for them gingerly; many that …
