Random Thoughts and Events

I am sitting here watching Seth stir his Lasagna around in a bowl. He wanted pizza for lunch but I don't have any. Seth loves pizza. So, I tried to convince him that Lasagne tastes like pizza. He has eaten most of it. He is so funny. Today while I was outside weeding my flower bed, Seth comes up to me and just points. I ask him what he wants and he just points. So finally I tell him to just show me. We walk a little bit and then he stops and points again. He is showing me a squirrel! So I try to get him to say squirrel and it comes out more as "quirrel".

Now I am reminded of the snake we saw this morning! I was opening the garage door so I could let Seth get his car out of the garage to drive around when I see this long black snake sitting outside. At first I didn't really realize what it was until Seth started walking near it and then it dawned on me that it was a snake! Just a garden snake, but definitely the biggest one I have seen around here. It quickly slithered off into the flower bed, luckily not the one I was planning on weeding!

My sister, Sarah, will be coming to stay with us for a little while this summer! I don't know for how long, but I am really excited! So are the children. Honestly, it has been the motivation to get me up and to do something lately. I think I have senioritis, you know the disease you get at the end of your senior year because you have been in school for way too long and you still can't believe you have to go to school for two more weeks after Memorial Day! Ok, maybe the Memorial Day part isn't true for seniors, but I just had to insert a tiny rant! Haha! I wish the kids could just be done with school and we can start our playing! Oh well, June 12th will be here soon.

Kate will start the process getting braces here in a few weeks. Anyone want to donate some money to me? Seriously, a piece of wire costs how much? I suppose that is where all the money I have been saving from not buying diapers is going!

Dishwasher is out again. My nails have never looked so clean! What brand of dish washing soap claimed to make your hands look nicer? Was it Palmolive? Like I've said before, having the dishwasher out sure makes it easier to clean out drawers and cabinets.
