The title doesn’t make any sense. But I just fell asleep in front of my computer 5 minutes ago trying to think of one. So we’re going with it. Before I nod off again.
It’s been another busy week here. We enjoyed Victoria Day fireworks with some friends. They all live on our street but on the part that has a lot of kids. And nice people. So we crashed (by invitation) their party. It was really nice to be able to see fireworks with the kids without having to fight our way through crowds, and risk one of the kids being too scared to stay. All 3 kids had a lot of fun, but Maggie in particular was in heaven. The delight of the visual stimulation overrode the loud noises that have sometimes bothered her in the past. One of the kids that was there is so sweet with Maggie, and always takes her under her wing. She was rubbing her back and hanging out with her talking to her. It was nice. That girl’s older sister gets along well with Molly and they haven’t seen each other in awhile, and one of Grace’s old kindie friends was there too, so it was cool that each of the girls had a friend to chill with on their own.
Monday was yard work day. Nerdguy worked hard cutting the grass and giving my new weedwacker a workout. Then I just started pulling out shrubs that have been bugging me for years. I got excited about having a nice looking yard.
And then I got tired. And allergic. And I was over it. Besides, a tidy yard would just be misleading about what the inside of the house looks like. And I’m nothing if not authentic.
Fake names aside.
The rest of the weekend was spent
nagging gently reminding (eleven million times) Molly to finish her pioneers project. I told her just to write about the month we lived without a microwave, or our camping trip, but apparently I’m “spoiled” and “delusional.”
