The roofers have come and gone. They roofed, they messed, they half-assed cleaned up. I gave them watermelon and smiled cause I got a GREAT deal for a 30yr roof that looks terrific and they also did a fine job repairing my patio. Who knows, maybe the kids can play out there before Christmas.
Speaking of playing, The Scientist finally saved up enough cash to buy a bike. He took to it really well, and we have even gone for a few family walks/rides since the weather has been cool in the evenings. Should I repeat that for those of you that know me? YES, the whole family (My honey too) went for a walk. I repeat, the fat hermit has left the building! lol
This hermit is actually taking quite a step out on the 8th for our family vacation! We are going to camp on my dad's property in Arkansas. It's going to be a blast. My dad has invited tons of family and friends. He's a bona fide hippy, so it will be fun "roughin' it" in a tent for 3 days with the kids. I envision water fights, nature hikes, creepy bugs and watermelon dripping from the chin! We will enjoy a little luxury on the trip though. We plan on doing one hotel stop, and hitting the Ft.Worth Zoo and the Rain Forest Cafe (per Miss Thangs request). She is such an animal lover, but I remember when I first took her to the Cafe and she freaked out over the animatronic gorillas. Not in a good way! Man I love scaring my kids. I blame it on my mother who did horrid things like pulling pantyhose over her head and moaning like a zombie. Talk about rounding a corner and crapping your pants! I can't wait until Cutecumber is old enough for that one.
Ok, well I hope to shower you with tons of pictures soon. That includes vacation pics and a new home tour challenge. I might do a quick one today because I'm feeling a bit ambitious actually. Maybe I'll do a small room like the bathroom and let you snoop in my cabinets. :P
One last thing, I'm going to add a new song of the month. I plan on putting up a song that reminds me of my brother who is very much on my mind lately, so if all goes well, I dedicate this song to The Teej.
Although you jump into life and almost drown, I watch you jealously from the side, with my one toe still testing the waters while you swim and enjoy the water! Check out Float On by Modest Mouse!
