Tonight Christian took care of La Luz while I did two very important things. I worked late and then met Nelia and Jen for dinner at Crepe Nanou. It was nice to get in an extra hour of work to start the week off but the best part of the evening, and probably the highlight of my week, was having a few hours to visit with Neila and Jen. It is amazing how rarely we get to spend time together what with all the child rearing and working. It is strange that most of what we know about each other's lives is from reading the blogs.

Around the Vaicius house things weren't as wonderful. Although La Luz started off her day like this:
It ended with a badly skinned knee, serious tears, and an early bed time so I did not get a chance to see her. According to Christian, La Luz insisted on walking Loki and at some point he pulled too hard and, being the diligent dog-walker that she is, La Luz refused to let go of the leash and, instead, toppled over. The result - the first of many skinned knees.
