Lots of stuff here, none of it terribly interesting though. However, I'm pretty sure a little detail like that won't stop me from writing about it.
We had a nice Easter, long day, though. We narrowly averted sending Busy Boy for a ride in a Hummer with a stranger, but, other than that it was uneventful. My MIL lives in an ever so slightly questionable area, not violent, just um, some really, um, "rural" people. I keep a close eye on the kids when we are outside there after the police chase through there that one time. Anyway, the neighbor owns a Hummer, and, Busy Boy thought it was pretty cool.
MIL remarked, "I talked to him about giving Busy Boy a ride, he said to just come over when we were ready." I was thinking, "Oh, that's really nice of him to do." However, those warm fuzzy thoughts were interrupted when she went on to say, "But, he never told me his name, I hate it when people do that." Um, yeah, she didn't actually know said neighbor.
I ended up taking yesterday off from work to "get some things done" (I'll give you a minute to stop laughing that I really thought that would happen). Everyone was off yesterday, or, so I thought. Seems that The Preschooler Formerly Known as Busy Baby had school (we thought they were closed) and they had fixed him a birthday cake. Yeah, I felt about this ---> <--- big, and, apologized profusely. I had also forgotten that a friend of mine was in town. We haven't seen each other in several years, so, she wanted to get together with the kids. I got everyone ready to go to the park, and, the phone rang. And, for the third "forgotten" of the day, Busy Girl was supposed to go shopping with a friend (I thought the plans wer kind of tentative, really) and they called, and, were on the way to get her. So, I rushed to the bank to get her some money, and, off she went. This was actually her first "real" shopping trip, and, I am pretty sure it won't be her last.
The boys and I went to the park to see my friend, and, Busy Dad stayed home to do yard work and such. We had a nice time, but, I think her kids got bored at the end, two of them began to feel ill, but, I am pretty sure they were faking. By the time we were done, it was almost time to pick Busy Girl up for her softball game. So much for my day off.
Ya'll. I am just not feeling the love with this softball thing. It was an exciting close game, but, I am just not adjusted to the
big ol' rednecks environment, yet. There was a bit of controversy, and, let's just say that soccer parents have nothing on these people. Maybe I just haven't been involved with it long enough.
OK, I'm even putting myself to sleep with this entry...
