Hello! Sorry it has been a pathetically long time since I wrote on my blog. But there is a lot of material that needs to get posted–beginning with THIS (see above photo). Last spring, I started talking a lot about how my husband wears winter and only winter clothes–even in the blistering summer heat of Los Angeles?
As you can imagine, that’s pretty embarrassing sometimes. We’ll be out walking in blistering heat, everyone around us wearing bikinis and shorts, and there is my husband in his thick turtleneck and jeans–WITH sweat pouring down his face and looking like he’s about to keel over from a heat stroke. (This used to be embarrassing–fortunately, I no longer register the feeling of embarrassment when he does things that puzzle others.) So, last year, he began to break out of this winter-clothes-in-summer habit. For the first time in our then nine years of marriage, he wore T-shirts. Not daily, but T-shirts were worn–both at home and on the ocassional work day.
I thought we might actually be in for our first “normal” summer this year. I thought my friends might stop asking if my husband is okay, is he having a heat stroke, and why does he dress like that? Then all of a sudden, this happened (above photo again). We went to the beach two weekends ago. It was hot. Everyone was running around in bikinis. There’s my husband lying in the sand (no blanket, of course) in winter clothing.
That’s my baby beside him. Isn’t he CUTE!!!?
