Thanks for all the compliments on the girls’ pics. I must apologize for subtly implying that I looked awful in them. Everyone was quick to assure me I look lovely, and that made me feel like I was just secretly fishing for compliments. ( I probably was!) My friend Cami sent me all the pics today, and I’m actually pleased with the ones I’m in. I do look pretty thin, for those of you who commented on that, but in my profile pic I’m 5 months pregnant, so that might explain it.
So, the roofers are here tearing our house apart. I used to say roof as in woof, just like every other Ohioan. Now, I say roof as in spoof. I was corrected once by a first-grader I was subbing for in Indiana. I am the only one in my town who pronounces it like this (correctly).
So, a guy comes to our door today asking for signatures on a petition to make all public places in our town “no smoking” zones. I signed it, hoping I didn’t offend any of my neighbors who smoke, because I love them. I felt better when I saw that my one neighbor had already signed it and her husband smokes. 🙂 So, the petition dude takes his paper and pen out to the roofing guys (who are smoking!) and they sign it! At least one of them did, cigarette in hand. So, I’m hoping I didn’t miss the fine print and signed something I shouldn’t have. I can only imagine…
Speaking of the roofers, one of them is wearing a t-shirt that says, “American by birth, Anti-Christ by choice.” I’m praying for him. I feel compelled to go out and witness, but I have 3 small children, there’s a heat advisory, and I am a woman. I will just pray for him from here.
Gabe is taking Ava out on a date tonight to Bob Evans. She is wearing a dress (and scarf, sunglasses, princess crown) and he is wearing a tie (and other things–ha!). She is sooo excited, she can barely stand it. She has been begging to take a nap, because when she gets up, she’s taking a bath and getting ready. I count myself exceedingly fortunate to have a husband who takes his Daddy/King role so seriously. My heart just melts at times like these.
Happy Hottest Week of the Year to All!
