Life goes on. I am learning that. It's probably good that I am doing other things; or so I keep telling myself.
I made an apron!! I had a few questions in some areas but after a few phone calls, I was able to understand the instructions. It's cute. Too bad you can't see it.
Kolby has a real problem getting into food. His excuse is always "But I am hungry, momma!" I wish he would understand that if he only ate the meals and snacks I give him, then he wouldn't be so hungry! It is really getting to me! Kolby has his little hiding spots where he takes his stolen food. He's clever, but predictable. So yesterday, after making cookies and giving some to the kids, I walked in the kitchen to put another batch in the oven and found some of the cookies missing. I looked, and found Kolby hiding behind the couches, looking proudly stubborn. I made him give me back the cookies. Guess where he had them? Crumbled and smooshed in his front pocket, just like Napoleon Dynamite had with his (tater) tots. I tried not to laugh. I talked to him again, rather sternly, about stealing food and how it makes me really sad. "Why do you steal food??" His reply was rather point-blank. "Because I am Kolby, momma!"
Well, I guess I can't argue that.
So Heath and I have tried very hard to get the computer working. He has called me at night and walked me through a few things. None of them worked. We think it's hopeless. It's really too bad.
In the meantime, I am limited to my library visits. Or rather, the kids are limiting me. We can only last so long being respectfully quiet in the library. I read two books in two days. I think the next step is cleaning my house from top to bottom.
This Memorial Day weekend had me thinking about last year at this time. We had gone camping with three other families for the weekend. We went to a place in California that we hadn't camped at before. It was lots of fun, but apparently I was allergic to the entire campground or something. My throat closed up as soon as we got there and I lost my voice. My eyes started itching and watering and one of them got really puffy and closed up. Also, at this time, I was wearing my glasses in preparation for my Lasik surgery that I was getting the following week. Turns out, because of that allergic reaction, I had to postpone that surgery three more weeks. I was so bummed.
So, those of you that are camping this weekend, have a great time. I hope you don't get any reactions. Gas prices jumped up from my last post. It's not at 3.81/gallon. If you travel, hope it's not too far! See ya on the flip side.
