If I said I was too busy to blog, that would be a lie, because here I am.
Truly, though, when you start looking forward to the weekend on Tuesday, that’s a sign.
There’s much to share:
- The visit from the boy’s 17-year-old friend who’s a girl but not a girlfriend (wink) from Missouri has come and gone
- We “did D.C.” for the 4th and lived to tell
- The boy has now been driving for a full two weeks incident-free
We’re low on funds due to a week of feeding and entertaining two teens and one additional kid who doesn’t eat much but still likes to get stuff. I’m forbidding myself to buy; the boy took his change to the coinstar machine ($40) and the girl is waxing commercial:
“You know, there aren’t many options for kids to make money beyond the old cliché lemonade stand.”
Ah, my heart swells when my nine year old uses cliché correctly in a sentence. She even did finger quotes. Buy that girl some ice cream!
