Baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and Renfest

I seem to have a penchant for writing at the precise times that no one reads blogs, as evidenced by the fact that I'm finally sitting down to write something and it's Memorial Day Weekend.

But, the real joke here is that no one reads blogs anymore, so all times are the times no one reads blogs.

But, does that stop me? No, it does not.

Like I said on Twitter or somewhere, I feel like we should be rocking the baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and Chevrolets since it's Memorial Day Weekend and all, but we really don't have too many plans.

Busy Girl is somewhere, I forget where, getting ready for a mini-triathlon tomorrow.

Yes, we are suspicious she's adopted, why do you ask?

The running and swimming won't be a problem, but I am giving the biking portion the hairy eyeball because competitive biking is just not something we do every day around here.

But, I'm sure they have a newb-scoop somewhere to pick her up off the street if necessary.

She also starts her summer life guarding job today. She's going to do a great job, but she doesn't believe me that it can be hard, and that by the end of the summer, she'll probably never want to see a bathing suit, the sun or water ever again.

Busy Boy and his pals are off the the Renaissance Festival (girl-repellent!), and Busy Dad will probably take Busy D. as well.

Busy Dad tried to cut his finger off with the lawnmower the other night (he's fine), so we spent Wednesday evening in the ER.

Several stitches later, he's mostly repaired and is #1 for the next week (It was his index finger).

I also get a kick out of saying, "Yes? Do you have a question?" Since his finger is stuck up in the air, and he's had to keep it elevated.

So, that will leave me here with the eternal question, "Should I provide my family with food and clothing and prevent the house from falling apart, or should I do stuff on the computer?"

I typically opt for walking circles around the house and periodically checking the fridge, so we'll see what happens.

Don't you wish the refrigerator had a rotate button so when you looked inside, you'd have a different look at contents? I think that would be marvelous for days like this. I'm on bedrest, so I'm in blog land reading your blog. Thanks for tweeting it. i've been blogging too, but your adventures are so much more exciting. Do one thing good for you. *hugz* Heidi

Thanks for the laugh! The picture of you asking hubby with his finger in perpetual suspension, cracks me up.

No wild plans for us either. Unless you count grocery shopping, hair cutting, and sheet changing wild. I think not. We are grilling pork chops though. That's about all I can handle. Oh, and The Boy discovered 96 episodes of Mindfreak on Netflix.....

You do know that the Renaissance Festival is boob heaven for a young boy? :)

I get to go to Costco. I know you're jealous.

Oh, and I might kill 2 children for the constant fighting. Just promise you'll come visit me in the slammer when you come to San Diego, k?

the one day i read blogs you talk about not reading blogs. thats fate or something. hope busy dad is doing ok

Ouch on the finger!! I wouldn't be able to resist some loving mockery either. I still love reading blogs, but am having trouble finding new ones to explore. Everyone is into the FB and twitter stuff which is OK, but not good for actually getting to know people. *sigh*

I don't get holidays off, and I work on every day that ends with a "y," so I'm always confused when the checkout people say, "Have a nice holiday!" I stand there with a blank look and get this panicky feeling that it's Christmas and I forgot.

Have a great weekend is all I can say, since I stopped reading after "Busy Dad tried to cut his finger off," and, well, if you happen to see my stomach, just tell it to get home, before the street lights come on, thanks!!!

*sigh* I know what you mean about blogging becoming the dinosaur of the technology age. I feel like no one reads anymore.

Have you tried listening to the police scanner for your area? it is a TOTAL waste of time and will suck you in faster than a tight pair of jeans... then go to the "Live Audio" tab and the "live audio home button. Then you can find a feed for your area. Or New Orleans because they are always fun to listen to.
