Some stuff that happened [May. 28th, 2008|10:26 pm]
  • We got home from vacation on Saturday evening, and Sunday let the kids hang around the house in their pajamas while Husband and I went out to lunch. A real date! At a (for those who remember Max) sit-down restaraunt.
  • After lunch, we ran errands and ended up buying stuff for the kids. That's what the guilt of sneaking off for a date will do for you. The Boy snagged a new set of sheets, a yard game to share with Middle Daughter, and two new Captain Underpants books. He thanked us profusely and informed us we were the best parents he's ever had. I certainly hope so.
  •  Also on Sunday, Husband and The Boy discovered a swarm of bees on the backside of the shed. We were hoping they were just resting for a bit before moving on, but it appears they have set up hivekeeping. So now I have to call a bee removal service. Part of me is tempted to wait long enough for them to make some honey, but since we just bought the new yard game and all I guess we should get the bees out of the yard.
  • I am trying very hard not to cut my hair, with varying success. I did trim my bangs a bit and managed to sort of make a hole on one side but I am ignoring it, because if I try to even it out I will mulletize myself again. It's all at exactly the length that makes me want to cut it off. Except, you know, for the part with the hole.
  • The Boy had his kindergarten graduation today. Originally I was going to miss it, because I had an early training class at work, but I went in late because I just couldn't bear to miss seeing him in the little cap. It was all just too cute, and I got a great picture of The Boy and his fiance, which I can't post because I don't post pictures of other people's kids without permission, but trust me when I say it's cute. Husband commented that it would be too funny if The Boy really did end up marrying this girl. We could use their kindy graduation picture as an engagement pic.  Then they would be that adorable couple that everyone hates because they're just too adorable.
  • While we were out and about running errands, I picked up a copy of Twilight. I had to get it in hardback because they were sold out of the paperbacks, so it better be good. I'm only about 100 pages in because I didn't have much time to read over the holiday. Is it worth the hardback price? Should I have held out for the paperback?
  • Did I mention that another blade fell off our bedroom ceiling fan while we were gone? What is up with that? The metal is sheared right off, like it was with the last one. We probably have some rare metal-eating mold or something.

Wow! You've had a full week!

I know how hard it is to resist; I've been cutting my own hair for a couple of weeks now, off and on. lol I thought your hair looked really good in your last batch of photos.

Gosh, not sure what to think about the ceiling fan doing that again. Do you keep it on high speed? Ours sounds as though it's going to start shooting blades out if I have it on high.

Have a nice weekend!

We don't run it at all, which is what makes the blades falling off so weird. I think it's time for a new light fixture.

A sit down restaurant? Max would be proud!

I want you to be my mom. I need new sheets!

The good thing about having our crazy hair is that you can lop off chucks and no one is the wiser. I once clipped about a half-pound of gum outta my hair (don't ask) and viola! No dif!

Your ceiling fan shears blades. My ceiling fan eats lightbulbs. Seriously. I can't keep 4 working bulbs in the thing. Meanwhile, the recessed ceiling light, 20 odd feet above my head, has yet to burn out - 12 years running. How is this possible?

The boy needs to marry his finace someday. He must. Oh, he can divorce her later and everything but that pic NEEDS to be on a wedding invite. It's sheer adorableness is begging for it.

I grouse about it, but I do love that I can whack on my hair and it doesn't show. Until I go someplace with no humidity. Then it's very, very sad.

You know, ceiling fan blades falling off is one of my phobias. I'd probably remove every fan in the house if that happened to me.

I call them sit-down restaurants, too.

I'm just glad it wasn't running at the time. Although I never, ever turn on a ceiling fan...I only have them at all because the other people in the family like them. They scare me. I mean, really. Whirling blades over your head? This is a good idea?

Holli read it, and LOVED it! Now, she's reading the second one, and the counting the days until August when the third comes out. Can I just say, I crings (literally) at buying hardcover for that exact reason? Thank God, I have enough rickety furniture, if the book tanks, at least dressers are even. :O)

The house is mad you left, so maybe you should have bought *it* a little token?

Just sayin'.....

Re: Twighlight

I think the house is annoyed about something. Did I mention the time the front door latch flug a ball bering at my face? Almost gave me a black eye.

I haven't been horribly impressed with Twilight, but I can see why teen girls would be. All angsty love with a guy who is totally devoted to you but will never try to get in your pants. I'll probably read the other two, just because they're out there, but I'll definitely wait for paperback.
