Hi all. I took the other two to school (oldest ds and cousin), visited w/my friend, who is the kindergarten teacher @ school, stopped and got new drip irrigation hose for backyard (sprinklers haven't worked for a few years, and we haven't invested $$ to fix them), found a few shirts for me for the upcoming DC trip (now, I can't go in my old everyday grunge shirts, can I???? Don't answer that unless you agree w/me!), got home, . . . Youngest ds on computer and is coughing but no more diarrhea so far. I hooked the hose up (in the backyard, dear, in the backyard!) and started the dripper drippin'. So much for a truly exciting morning!!!
, doncha love a cold, wet nose and a whimper @ 2:00 a.m.???!! But you've been CHOSEN, you MUST feel honored (yeah, right)! Our cat Fred, all 18+ pounds of him, will wake oldest ds up at 3 or 4 a.m., just settling on his chest, purring . . wanting attention . . .
, yum, chinese food!! And you certainly are organized, planning and purchasing your afternoon snack in advance!! Cute!
The lake sounds beautiful!! We have baby duckies in our ponds at work, they're so cute! and then there's THE BEACH!!! Yay!! I can just see those dogs enjoying with total abandon -- bet Annabelle hurt that evening, though, poor thing; AND, I bet they slept WELL!!! There is something special about listening to the waves crashing, and feeling the salt spray, and walking on sand, and seeing the horizon stretching out into forever . . sounds like a wonderful day! Thanks for letting us share it!
CHATS and Tweety,
thanks for the well-wishing for ds, I'm sure he'll be better soon. Kids bounce back faster than us old folks.
, enjoy your break!
, good to hear from you. Stay safe w/errands in the rain.
, Let us know what you decide re: Lasik. And, singing?? What singing??? Tell us about this concert, all the details and etc! I sing with dh @ church (just praise-type stuff) and in a jazz class. I wanna know about YOU!
, what a good memory, to have celebrated the first Earth Day by helping clean up . . . I was never cool either, growing up. Just in my own little world. And I have pockets of nice memories too. Growing up is hard; my mom told me, a long time ago, she tried to keep reminding herself (raising four kids by herself) that it's hard to grow up.
Hope work improves and is not so helacious (or however you spell it!). The weekend is nearly upon us!!
I'll check in again. I told work to call me if they needed me after 12:00, as dh would be home by 1:00, and I could leave ds and come in.
Oh, and Leslie, it's difficult to describe "rooting," -- it's kind of a snuffling, low grunty-snorty/snory thing . . in my mind, that is.
