By the way, I had a lot of fun writing that post! Guess it shows I spend too much time with kids aged five and under. :-) I do have to say though that Dave did not like the picture I posted about him sleeping on the couch. Gee shucks. Too bad.
(He'll read this tomorrow at work and say some "not so nice" words!).
Dave took his Oath of Office and has officially returned to the Georgia National Guard in a part time position. He is assigned to a unit about an hour south of us. Will keep you posted on his status----
Alex's soccer team played twice this weekend---winning both times. They have a tournament this weekend then are done for the season. The little girls and I went to the game on Sunday. They enjoyed being at the soccer field but didn't watch the game at all. Nope. They spent the time with friends pulling weeds and replanting them in a different spot. Yep. Pulling weeds and replanting. But hey, they were busy and happy!
The little girls and I did not attend his game on Saturday. I was happily reading a book and didn't feel like heading to the field. Bad mommy, I know. I did go today though. I put down my book. A struggle that it was, I did stop reading.
Let me digress for a moment. When we are not in school, I can read a book a day. Now, this is not mind-gripping literature but fun novels. If I read anything involving a lot of thought, it takes a bit longer. My teens think I'm crazy.
Sidenote: I would love to write a book myself but don't think I have the creativity to do so. I'll keep thinking about it though.
Most times on the weekends, I am relishing a nap or
Anyhow, I went to the library on Saturday and got four new books. It is now Sunday night and I've already finished two of them. I would be reading another one right now but decided to update you, my faithful readers, instead. :-)
That's another thing. Katie and Alex think the blog thing is weird. "Mom, who wants to read about our lives. All you do is vent" (after my post about parents of teens).
Yet, when Katie was at Georgia Southern this weekend, she checked the blog to see what she missed on Friday and Saturday. See? It serves a purpose. When she is gone next year, she can check in on us. AND, Alex wanted to read it yesterday to see what I'd posted about him. Maybe they'll think twice about doing something for fear it could end up here for the blog world to see.
Nah. Who am I kidding?
Hint of things to come: I have asked Danielle to redo the blog. New scenes are coming soon!!!
