So in it’s place I have a whole laundry list of things I’ve forgotten, things I’m thankful for, and just stuff!
First off……….I promised a friend I would assist her in getting her 12 year old son set up with a blog. Anyone know of any kids blogging networks like SITs for kids? I need to get hopping on that promise, only 8 more weeks of summer for him.
Where does Anita go all day………well hello I go to SOFTBALL! I go there 2 or 3 nights a week for practice and then I go there most weekends, and I was there all day yesterday, sadly Adrienne’s team had a rough day, 2 losses, so this morning was do or die(so to speak) and Kevin went to the game and they lost, a heartbreaker 5-4. Some good things did happen. Adrienne caught all 3 games, Adrienne got a hit in all 3 games, and today she hit a double and brought in the first run, their first run this weekend. The loss sent them home………but we play again in 2 weeks.
I’m an awful daughter, I have to call my parents, haven’t talked to them all week, they understand, but still………..shame shame. How often do you talk to your parents?, and Terra I know lucky you, you probably talk to or see your mom daily…….wish I weren’t so far away.
Today I get to drive Caitie 50 miles south(ugh) to a friends house from her HOBY conference, it’s still in our county and all the kids are getting together to plan a service project. The girls are also spending the night, so I’ll get to make the 100 mile round trip twice…….joy joy. Honestly I love that she is involved, but dang, with gas going up I hate it!
Ok, I did something this week I’ve been adamantly against, and no Pam I did not order a Kindle! I let Nick buy not one but two airsoft guns. The shoot little plastic like pellets, and it uses air, not like a hard BB gun action. I hate guns……..not a proud member of the NRA!! We’ve had nerf guns, but I wouldn’t even let him buy those fake guns at DW. His friend has some, and he loves playing with them. It was his money and I just gave in, folded like a little girl…….not sure how I feel about it. He’s been shooting things from our recycling bin……picture milk jugs, water bottles etc.
I’m thankful for dinner out. Last night we met Kevin at TGIFriday’s and had a nice dinner together, I even had a yummy mojito and let Caitie drive home, not that the one drink followed by dinner gave me a buzz, but I did set a good example!
Ok, dang it’s nearly 11:00, and I need to clean up the kitchen from the pancakes I made!
Enjoy the weekend, its’ hotter than blue blazes( that’s TX talk for ya) here in sunny FL……….ugh…….a bit too sunny!
