“AAAArrrrrgggghhhh!” ~Charlie Brown
Please hear my Charlie Brown-esque vocal stylings from wherever you are out there. Oh the pain.
I had like 150 emails in my inbox today. Granted, most of them were crap, but still, they have to be deleted. And that takes time. I have a limited time on the library computer so I am not getting to blog walk. I have no idea what is happening in everyone’s lives. I. Feel. So. Disconnected. sniff sniff. Please know that I am missing all of you and hopefully, I will be back online regularly soon. I am currently having bigger fish to fry, as there seems to be some mysterious leak from the kids’ shower. Moola may have to go to a plumber instead of Mr. Gates. Seems as though I’ll be visiting the library a bit longer. I retrieved my dead tower from my Geek…and it is sitting there, sadly by the computer desk.
Meanwhile, we had a lovely Memorial Day weekend. Doing pretty much nothing, which is great by me. We went downtown to visit the local farmer’s market, which was fun. We cooked out. We took a bike ride, visited the pool. It was good. The weather was nice. Hubby and Jacob went fishing yesterday and it seems that the Ospreys were catching all the fish. Which was good consolation for Jacob…if you can’t catch fish, at least you can see some really cool birds…ospreys, great blue herons, egrets, etc.
Our Iowa house closed last week. SO YAY!! The kids finished their dreaded end of the year standardized torture…er, testing, last Thursday. So aside from the dead computer and the mysterious shower leakage, we had quite a bit to celebrate…gotta keep it all in perspective, ya know!
As I sit here, I have received a call from Jacob’s assistant (trust me, I wouldn’t have answered my cell–which is on vibrate, by the way–in the library if I didn’t see that it was HER!), who has told me that Jacob is “done” with field day. You’d think the kid would love having a day where he doesn’t have to sit in class or have much homework to speak of, but NOOO, he hates field day. It means competition and that means personal angst for my boy. So, it looks like my computer time is going to be shorter than usual. DANG. The boy comes first.
I bid you all a fond farewell, until my next library outing. Might even get back here again this week! We’ll see about that.
