It’s 6:07am and all is quiet. I woke at 4:30am staring at the wall. At 5:00am I investigated the source of Millie’s barking (a wandering yellow lab…that does not please me). At 5:20am I got a cup of coffee. Me, up at this hour, is unheard of. About noon I will regret not going back to bed. I really like to sleep. :)
I did a photo dump of my cellphone. Do you do that? Sometimes I find the oddest moments recorded.
I remember this day. I took Nick and Lucas to lunch at McDonald’s and we went inside. Something I now do maybe twice a year. I remember 17 years ago going here every single day with Nicholas and climbing through those tunnels. Now talking about it makes me gag. Kids are gross. (Lucas is in the bubble, but you can’t see him with the glare).
My first rainbow of the summer over town.
Shopping for graduation shoes. The girl does love her shoes.
(I’m sure a procrastinator. All the cleaning I could be doing instead of blogging).
Homer and I took Emily to dinner at Pike’s for graduation. That and she got an iPhone.
I gave the prime rib sandwich a second chance and mentioned to the waitress how awful it was last time. She must have made sure I had the best cut because it was really good.
Look at the desserts Homer and Emily had. I can’t imagine eating all the sugar. I’m not a sweets person.
My dear husband who I hardly ever see. With working such long hours, working on the house/yard and giving attention to our many children there isn’t much left for us.
Pike’s Landing put in a mini golf course this summer. Isn’t she such a goofy girl? Her and Homer are so silly together you can’t help but laugh at them.
I finished –4 under par. It was really a fun time.
The hair that took forever so she missed the bus and I had to drive her to school. Stunningly beautiful.
Really? I’ve seen toilet planters (which I don’t get), but a urinal? I just can’t imagine having that sitting in my front yard, but to each his own. Lots of people recycle crazy things into planters.
Random guy on a longboard wearing a skirt pushing himself with a long pole that resembled a paddle. Nick and I thought we were having a Jesus siting.
Another family outing to Food Factory that we cannot really afford, but since we definitely cannot afford a vacation we like to treat the kids when we can because we all love food. :)
The other day when we had a girls day shopping for some summer stuff Olivia had a root beer float. She loves them.
Yesterday I took Lucas to get a haircut. I can’t believe it has been so long.
He wanted a Mohawk so I settled for a faux one. Then he had her spray paint it.
What a cutie. I imagine when he gets up he’ll want it gelled right away.
I rained all evening and apparently all night and it is sprinkling now. Everything is wet and working in the yard isn’t happening today. I am frustrated. My flowers have to get planted as they’ve outgrown their pots. Crossing my fingers the rain lets up. My iPhone shows sun, but the skies are telling me differently.
I have piles of stuff everywhere. We all do. We are the most cluttered family I know and while everyone else doesn’t care it drives me crazy. I think today is a good day to clean. I’m quite sure the children in my life will say otherwise.
I think I’m going to join my 5 sleeping children. This is just too early for me.
