I was going to start this post with a picture of Jack, but I am at Sarah's house and I haven't quite figured out how to use her picture program. I am spending two days at her house while her and Nick take the girls to the water park. Water park and Jack just didn't sound like a good fit. This way they have one parent for each child and they should have a blast. The girls were very excited and I'm excited to have Jack all to myself.
I decided this was a perfect time for a little randomness. Jack is down for his nap, so here goes....
The Cubs are on and they are kicking butt in the 4th inning. It is 7 to 1 and I'm happy. My husband says it doesn't matter because they are so far back, but I don't care. I love to see them do good whenever it is.
I have very limited sports interests. I like the Cubs, Notre Dame football, the Kentucky Derby and the Indy 500. I am not fanatical about any of them. That's just who I happen to like and I don't care if you like them or not. I am happy that you like who you like, but that doesn't mean that I have to like them too. I actually had a fellow blogger delete my comment because I had the nerve to say that I didn't care for the player that she was gushing over. I think that is just ridiculous.
I have become an addict! I am totally addicted to SoBe Lifewater. Have you tried it? It is so delicious. Refreshing and yummy and so many flavors and 0 WW points. I blame April at the Sisterhood for suggesting it, now I'm hooked.
A good friend and her family were out last week from Maine. They had a graduation open house out here for all of us. Her family is out here and so are many friends. It was fun to spend time with them. Someday, we are going to get out to Maine and visit them.
During the summer, we have bunco pool parties. I think it's funny because none of us go in the pool. Most of us don't even wear bathing suits. The few of us that have school age kids, their kids go in, but that's about it. We do have fun though. Our next one is Tuesday. The last hurrah before school starts.
Dick and I went to Cruise Night the other weekend. It is something they have in our town during the summer. Last year, it was every Saturday night. This year it is only once a month. What it is...they close the street for three blocks in the heart of downtown and people bring their classic restored cars up and park on both sides of the street for people to look at. Being it was just once a month this year, they were supposed to have a band and beer garden, but they didn't. It was still fun though. More so for Dick than me, but still fun.
There is a new challenge over at the Sisterhood. It's a team challenge and I love my team. As of right now, we are in first place. The challenge is called Down and Dirty in 30 and my team is the Lowdown Dirty Losers. Just a little play on words of the challenge name. Our plan is to win. I'll let you know at the end of the month if we did.
I am beginning to count down to the start of school. We have our big staff meeting on Thursday, open house and ice cream social on Monday and then we start on Wednesday the 25th. I can't believe it is here already. I'm still waiting for the "me" part of the summer to start.
The fun part of school starting is that Natalie will be in the two day morning class. She is very excited and so am I. She tells everyone that she has to call grandma by her big girl name.
Two pet peeves....people who have buttons for their blogs and then the codes don't work for you to get them and people who have giveaways and then don't post the winners when they say they are going to.
If you could, please say a prayer for my friend that I have been going to treatments and doctor appointments with. She had her CT scan on Thursday and we so want good news. Please Lord, no growth in the tumors and let the Avastin be doing it's job and cutting off the blood flow to the tumors.
I'm starting to hear Jack beginning to stir so I better close and get his bottle ready. Hope you all had a great weekend and your week ahead is wonderful.
