Hi! It’s been a while. I have no excuse except for that I have been busy. Haven’t we all? It’s no excuse, I just need to write more frequently.
So what’s up?
My husband is battling brush in Yosemite (which I thought was in Wyoming…perhaps I had it confused with Yellowstone…hey- don’t judge- my parents NEVER took us camping, thank goodness)
One of our dear bloggy friends, who had a very bloggy wedding, joined my club. It’s the world’s shittiest club, and she joined an even shittier way I did…it’s The Dead Parent Club.
Speaking of dead parents…it’ll be 10 years since I saw my mother. She died August 24th. I’ve been trying to think of a way my dad, sister, our kids and I can honor her. I wanted to let one of those floating paper lanterns go on the beach (and I had this idea long before the Kardashians Took Thailand), but, it turns out, those paper lanterns might be illegal. Considering we are in a drought, and live in one of the highest fire danger areas AND my husband is a firefighter, I’m trying to think of alternatives. Any ideas?
Eric might have something called Meckel’s Diverticulum. He goes for a scan on Wednesday. If he has it, he’ll need surgery, but it should fix his stomach issues.
I have a new job. It keeps me busy. I don’t know what I was thinking working 30 hours a week right as school got out!
I go on vacation to the beach in two weeks…and it can’t come soon enough!
This stuff keeps falling intermittently from the sky. It makes people drive badly and my car is now filthy…I think it’s called reign…no that can’t be right. Rain, maybe? It’s been so long since I’ve seen it, I can’t be sure. All I know is it’s sticky outside.
I’m really hoping I don’t get pink eye. My son has it and I didn’t realize it until it had been going on for several hours. He does NOT have an ear infection. The doctor checked. He DOES have Boy Who Cried Wolf Syndrome. Have you heard of it? It’s where he complains so much about the tiniest little things that I don’t believe him anymore. Unless he has blood shooting out a major artery, or vomits on my carpet (again), I probably am going to tell him to suck it up.
And lastly, my kids are totally into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles…the old school ones that I used to watch. Fun trivia fact- the voice of the evil Shredder…none other than Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince of Bel Air. You can use that one to
scare wow your friends at parties.
I’ll check in again soon…pinky swear!
