P.S. Yes, I know these are supposed to go at the end, but I honestly don’t know if you’ll make it to the end of this snoozer post. I’m in desperate need of some more Scrabble tiles. Many of you know of my fascination with them. I usually find them at garage sales from 25 cents to 2 dollars. I throw away the game board and racks and just use the letters. If you go garage-saling and find a Scrabble game, could you buy it for me? I’ll pay you for the game and shipping and even a bonus. THANK YOU!!
P.P.S. JAMIE’S HERE!!
I wanted to post something really quick, because Jamie and her boys will be here any minute, and tomorrow’s going to be pretty full. (although I’m sure Jamie will blog from her iTouch-pod-whatever-thingy while we’re supposed to be enjoying the zoo animals with our children)
I’ve been sitting here for a full two minutes trying to figure out something interesting to say. For most of that time, I was staring at a squirrel in our front yard. I think he was staring right back at me. Squirrels are weird. He tiptoed across the lawn, paused, looked all around, tiptoed some more, paused, started to climb a tree, decided against it. What’s going through that little acorn brain of his? Or hers. I think I assume all squirrels are boys.
Well, see, I did have something interesting to say after all.
Friday night, we met Gabe’s podcast host and his wife at TGIFriday’s for supper. They drove up from D.C. for a car show. Lee and Gabe have met once before, but I had never met him or Priscilla. Lee and Priscilla Love. What a cool name for a couple. They generously treated us to a yummy meal, then we took the girls to the mall to play on the Zoo Stuff. The security guard told Livi she was too tall. She cried. Turns out you have to fit under Jack Hanna’s hand. Livi and Ava were actually both too tall (and have been for about 4 years).
Yesterday Gabe’s Uncle Jeff, Aunt Diane and cousin Heidi came into town for Heidi’s softball tourney. She’s on a C-bus traveling team. The games were cancelled because the fields were too wet, so we all hung out here. Then Greg (Heidi’s brother) and his wife Megan came, and we all went to an Italian restaurant in town. We got treated again. This was our lucky weekend! We took a walk around the Metro Gardens and burned off 50 of the 5000 calories we each consumed.
Heidi’s team won three games–and the tournament!–today. The girls and I made it to one game, and Gabe went to all three. Great job, Heidi!
The girls caught 6 miniature toads today in the backyard. They’re about 1/2 inch long. They played with them for a long time despite my warnings that they would die from over-stimulation. Sadly, the world has 6 less toads tonight.
And I think that might be all I’ve got. Y’all probably could’ve survived without this newsworthy post. Oh well. What’s done is done. Have a great week!!
