Is it really Friday? Wow. Summer is in full force if I can't remember the days of the week anymore. I guess that is a good thing. This week has been full of the car search STILL. I swear, no one can blame anyone in this household with being an uniformed buyer. I feel like I am in information overload. The search continues.
Yesterday I was supposed to go up to the lake and celebrate a good friend's 50th birthday. She deserves to be celebrated. Besides being a great mom and educational advocate she is my favorite librarian... No, not this one.
But instead my crazy life got in the way. Couldn't leave by 1:00 with everyone else. Too busy taxiing the working kids -- back to "need a car!" Around 5:00 I got hit in the head with a 2x4 that kicked my ass. Sorry Sara. Tell your net-nanny that that is the only way to describe a headache like that. Twelve hours of sleep and 1600 mg of Advil later and I am a little happier this morning. But, I missed out on all the fun. I wonder if Nan did dance on the dock last night?
I have really enjoying my daughter's blog -- despite her recent efforts to oust the family skeletons due to her resignation that she will never be able to run for public office with a family like hers. I had a great comment, so witty and insightful. But it was eaten by Blogger. Such is my life.
This morning is gloriously dark and rainy. I am sitting on the sofa doing nothing but blog-rolling and watching Netflix instants like Veronica Mars. Watching old reunions has become a family tradition-- this has been the Buffy summer. I guess I look at it as a way to remind my kids that girls can kick ass too.
My friend Robert has a love affair with all things Apple. He is constantly reminding me how user friendly it is. Well even though I really like my i Phone, I am ready to throw it out the window! Trying to sync with my Google contacts has resulted in 47 EACH! Help! I mean, really, help... anyone....
This weekend we have my niece and nephew with us. I am excited. Really. Growing up we were never really around our cousins. We moved too much. I really want my kids to know their extended families. From both sides. Come July we are headed to Gulf Shores with DeBuys cousins. I think. Not looking forward to this: Thanks BP.
Well, the day has brightened up -- reminding me that I actually have housework to do today. But at the moment I am enjoying listening to my oldest chastise her 13 year old brother about who he is friends with on x-Box live. She'll make a good mother.
