As is often the case with me, I’m a day late and a dollar short. Yesterday turned out to be an irritating day (you will see why below) that took up much more time that I had to spare. Now I can finally sit down to write what I’ve been up to this week. Phew.
I am thinking of the impending cooler weather and all of the outside projects that I would like to get done before it gets too cold. I would love to sand and stain our deck, dig out our weedy and unsightly side garden, and I would like to add some more river rock to some areas of a yard to hopefully make it less weedy next year.
I am also thinking about whether or not I will be able to make it back to New England at the end of September. My uncle is getting remarried and it will be a very small, casual affair. My grandmother will be there from Florida and my aunt from Guatemala. I’m so torn because I have a complicated relationship with some members of my family. Decisions, decisions.
The hooligan that did this to my car window. Grr. Evidently there are a couple of punks that are driving around with a BB or pellet gun shooting car windows out in our neighborhood and the ones around us. In our case they had to have been on foot but the MO seems to be the same. The car was in our driveway and the driver’s side door is facing the trail along the open space next to our house. Since we are at the end of a cul-de-sac it just seems as though they were on foot. Regardless, they’re scumbags and I am looking forward to the day that they get caught.
The start of school! Red went back to school on Thursday and I am so glad to have normalcy back. I am finally able to get more blogging done at a reasonable hour since I no longer have to break up arguments every ten minutes. I love my kids more than anything but I also need to get my stuff done. Three months is a LONG summer vacation!
You guessed it! I’m still reading Doctor Sleep! I just renewed it from the library for the second time. This is getting almost comical, really. I also have Hyperbole and a Half checked out to read. I hope to start it one of these days because I’m doing my best to finish the one I’m reading before starting yet another one. My son isn’t the only one this family with the ADHD. Real talk, kids.
Right now Dub is in a pair of underwear and I’m nervous. Usually he is in a trainer if not in a diaper so this will be interesting. I think he is too used to using the diapers and even trainers as a crutch and they obviously aren’t helping very much so I am hoping that being in real big boy underwear will get this potty ball rolling. He knows how to use the potty and has quite a bit, he just doesn’t seem to really want to. I guess we’ll see what happens…
