Rambling thoughts

There's a skeeter in here and he's chewing on me, the light blew so I can't even see the little blood sucker. I'm too tired and too lazy to put a new bulb in right now so I'll keep fighting him in the dark.

MeriKate had outpatient surgery today for a hernia. She's home now but feeling quite a bit of pain so she's not a happy camper. She's also been sick because of the anesthesia. The doc said she can go back to school on Tuesday as long as she doesn't run and bounce around like a little wild indian. I hope Krysten and Abby feel sorry enough for her pain that they won't pick many fights this weekend, with her or each other.

Bubby, Jerri, and the Beans came this afternoon. After Zach, his sisters, and Alexis came home from school, Bubby and Zach went to the field to see James and Jerri and I took the 4 girls to town so I could go to the bank and get groceries.

We were outnumbered. By the time we got home we'd already tried to give them away about 4 times. To strangers. It also didn't help that Wal Mart was crowded and we couldn't find stuff as quickly as I would have liked so we could escape. I ended up only getting something quick to fix for supper, I don't think we'd have survived having to buy a weeks worth of groceries.

Trish called today and she'll be busy this weekend having a rummage sale. Maybe the girls will take pity on her and help out by helping her take care of customers. She told me that Jaylen is loving the new school but Jordan isn't so sure if she likes it or not.

I must stop procrastinating and get my photos ready for the tri-county Fair. They're supposed to be at the fair grounds on Sunday afternoon and I haven't matted the first one yet. Maybe I'd better do that tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!

It sounds like your day was surrounded by the sweet sounds of children...my daughter mentioned the other day that she remembered when I threatened to give her away to a complete stranger...at the time she didn't think it was very funny...I wish I would have known that then I might have used that a little more often!

Hope you were able to zap that mosquito!

I'm trying to remember if I ever stopped by here when your plate wasn't full.... No, don't think so.

Have a good holiday. Be nice to those folks from Louisiana who may end up camping in your drive-way.

Never a dull moment around your place! hehe I do hope MeriKate gets better real soon...I hate the way the anesthesia makes me feel sick afterwards also!! Oh gosh, I so remember trying to give away my boys when they were younger...sometimes I even said I'd PAY someone to take them! LOL Happy Labour Day weekend to you too, dear Brenda, I do hope you're having a FUN one! xoxo
