I don't know where my blog went yesterday, but I do know I felt completely bereft when I saw that notice. Trying to find a missing blog isn't as easy as one may think. There are four "simple" steps, but many times (as in my case) the link for step 2 is missing. Ironically enough, I was cited for excessive posting!! How my blog returned is a mystery, but I am SO HAPPY TO BE BACK!!
We are about to embark on our last "normal" week-end of summer break. I suppose that means I will take a break from nagging the boys to go outside or call a friend. All summer, I've determined that if they don't want to be outside, then they will be kept busy inside. They've learned to cut the grass, to clean the house, and to fix some things. If you need some screens repaired, give them a call!
Anyone know what these are?
My middle boy took his sister to "Take a friend to karate night." He deemed her chosen outfit unsuitable and made her wear bigger clothing! There's a lot to be said for the wisdom of younger brothers.
Last week-end I decided to surprise my husband by painting the biggest wall in our kitchen. The first color looked only faintly yellow. Not good. The second color looked fantastic at Lowes and then perfectly glaring once I painted (the picture fails to show the harshness.) I will not repaint until I finish redoing the cabinets and counter tops. I guess that means we will have to live with that color for a few years!
Now I'm off to laugh as my youngest son makes fun of Stevie Nicks, to listen to my middle boy as he attempts to teach himself some Russian phrases, to help my oldest boy pack for his first Order of the Arrow Ordeal, and to let my daughter practice her driving. May the Lord be with us all.
After fighting to get my blog back, I won't complain too much that I can't get Mrs. 4444's widget to work.
