what in the world are we going to do with our dog when we're gone next month? a kennel is the obvious answer but jack is going to be so sad. i hope he still likes us when we get back.
i really need to buy a new swimsuit.
sarah needs one too.
ditto for john.
we had such a good time in denver the other evening visiting with some friends from arkansas! i got caught up on all the arkadelphia scoop, and the mexican food wasn't bad either.
i chuckled a little at them getting chilled in the evening air. it felt perfect to me, but it took me a few years to feel that way.
i turned our air conditioner on for the first time this afternoon. i was really trying to make it until july without it. i'm stubborn, but i'm not ready to die of heatstroke.
i started a new book today. we'll see if i can get past chapter one. i haven't been able to get into a book in several weeks. and believe me, i've tried many different books.
will, however, is blazing through the books. he's reading To Kill A Mockingbird right now. he worked out some sort of deal with john where he reads a certain number of dad-chosen books and he gets a new Wii game. that kid is a slick negotiator.
i can't get sarah interested in nancy drew to save my life. i've tried reading them with her, reading them to her, letting her pick them and more, but she refuses to like them. how can she be my child?
i wonder if the mail has come.
oh, i need to remember to stop the mail while we're gone.
and stop the dairy service too.
praise the lord, my boys are getting haircuts today. my son's hair is SO long and it is driving me crazy. he doesn't know it yet, but it's getting chopped this afternoon (insert evil laugh here). i need to remember to take a before and after picture.
speaking of will, he got up this morning and fried 2 eggs for himself. i showed him how yesterday morning, and he got up and did it all by himself today. amazing. and they actually looked delicious...maybe even better than mine. i'm sure his future wife will thank me someday.
over and out.
