Yeah, not really. Yesterday, we went to Bonner Springs for the RenFest. The kids had a fabulous time. I got a few dirty looks because I got tired of Ethan just wandering, and grabbed him by the back of his shirt and pulled him back. Had to do that at least 4 times an hour. FUN!
Otherwise, the kids were great. And good, for the most part. I was a little short-tempered. No sleep because Josh was a twitchy mess, PLUS Claritin D, even after eating something. OI! But I was able to breathe, and attitude much improved with a soda and pizza.
Yesterday, we went to Holton. Josh’s dad wanted Josh’s help checking out the Silverado‘s brakes. BTW: its definitely the calipers. I remember that burning metal smell from the Jimmy when its calipers locked up. Considering Josh was pretty sure the calipers haven’t ever been changed, as far as he knows (and I think his dad confirmed that, minus a brake job, several years ago), that’s a long-lasting caliper 😛 It also needs a new/replacement power steering pump. That’s not too bad 😉 The Sonoma needed one too, 😆
We actually spent most of the day outside. Yes, even me! Crazy right? Well, it didn’t really get that hot, and Holton had a pretty steady breeze blowing up until it was about time for us to leave 🙂
Last night, Mark and Julie came over. Mark brought the laptop, so Julie was between us, and we were all comparing phones, 😆 Found out that the Samsung Captivate comes out THIS summer! I get to have a Samsung Android phone. Though it looks like they might not use my current charger connector though, 🙁 Oh well, I can send those to Mom and Dad, since Dad’s Blackjack and Rugged (for work) and Mom’s Blackjack (my old one) use the same connections.
Otherwise, not much is going on in this side of the world. Fireworks for Kids have started. Started yesterday morning, continued most of the day into the night, and started at 7am, and didn’t end until about half hour ago (it’s 3:15pm right now). The parking lot looks like a bomb went off because these kids aren’t cleaning up after themselves either. The biggest kicker: none of them are past the age of 11, and are doing this with absolutely no adult supervision at all, unless you count the adults who look out their windows, or the maintenance guy they’re shooting them off in front of.
Uh, oh, beware!! It’s another picture post involving the one formally known as “Toothpick”. I no longer feel so skinny, but Josh loves me this way, so I don’t know. I love to take pictures of myself, so I guess I’m not too uncomfortable. Continue reading →
