I’m trying to figure out what to do today.  The kids want to go to the zoo, but with this –


Probably not happening.  Last time we went to the zoo and it was 100 and above with the heat index, my children were miserable cranky poo’s.  That does not sound like a good time to me.

We could go to the pool again.  We’ve been the last 2 days in a row.

I don’t know.  We could go to Joanne’s fabrics and I could get patterns to try to make the girls dresses.

You remember my problems with my sewing machine?

My ex-husband came across one this weekend at a garage sale and called me to ask if I wanted it.

Yes! Yes!  Yes!

Did I say yes?

He just came to pick up Jordan and brought it with him.  I’m so excited!  I need to have Pato put it in my sewing cabinet.  Earl actually sewed across a washcloth with this one before bringing it to me and it worked just fine.  He even oiled it for me.

Thank you!

Jordan is gone for a couple of days and then when he comes back it’ll be time to get ready for his sleep away camp.  First time for him.  I’m glad he’s gotten used to spending the night away from me when he goes to his dad’s.  He should be fine.  I think he’s spent a week or so at his dad’s all in a row and the camp is 5 days.  I need to look at the list and see if I need to run to the store and grab him anything that we don’t have already.

My (first) baby is growing up!

We could also go to Pato’s work for supper.  They aren’t too terribly busy on Tuesday.  It’s Monday that knocks their socks off.  2 for 1 margaritas.  Mondays are a good day for him but a bad day for us to show up to eat.  His boss doesn’t appreciate us eating for free at a table that could be seating a paying customer.

I don’t know.

I wonder what my mom and dad are doing?  Mom has a dentist appointment this afternoon, but after that, I don’t know.  The kids have been dying to see her.

Speaking of mom/grandma.  I’ve been working with Christiano on saying grandma.  Last night he came up to me and I thought he might have said it, but wasn’t sure.  I said, say grandma!  dadadadadadada.  Nano!  Say grandma!  Am-ma Am-ma!  Mom wanted a cute nickname, right? She’s now Am-ma!

Alright, I’ll stop boring you with how I’m bored and go find something for us to actually do today.

I might think about back to school shopping.  I know, shut up Heather.  No really, check out vitacost coupons for some back to school savings.  Less than a month to go over here. :)

Have a great day!
