*Taking Dylan to ride his bike. He is loving his bike these days. He has grown so much, that it already looks too small for him, and we'll need to buy a bigger one next spring.
*One day last week, I made these...
In the same day, I took Dylan to the library to get new books, took him to swim lessons, made a new dinner recipe for us in the crockpot, and also made a mom in the Mom's Club dinner, who just had a baby. I felt a bit like Superwoman... that day (it didn't last). Just call me Martha.
Yes, he was excited... until he tried them. Then, he said "I don't like the white part". I think I responded, "When I actually make something special, complaining about it is a bad idea!" (in true Martha fashion)
*Had an eye appointment. You know how it takes a while for your vision to get back to normal after your annual appointment? Well, it took my eyes 5 HOURS!!! What the heck?! I still couldn't read the road signs at 6:30 at night when I was driving to go meet this sweet little baby...
*Took Dylan to my in-laws for the day on Saturday, so Jim and I could get work done around the house. Got a $110 speeding ticket on my way home (44 in a 25 mile zone). Oh, and he pulled me over in the worst part of town, and when I asked, "Did I do something wrong?", he answered, "No, not really"?!
Then, he told me "I'm not giving you any points, and it's just a $25 fine". Uh, yea, it is, but when you add this fee, and that fee, and the other fee, it comes to $110. Groan. As soon as he walked away to write up the ticket, I had a crying fit. But, I got myself together before he came back, and do you think my puffy eyes and red face made him decide not to give me the ticket? Uh, no. I have NEVER gotten out of a ticket. Not once.
*We took Dylan to Keystone Lake on Sunday. We had a great time, but I took very few pictures because... well, let's just say that it was hard to get a shot without some very interesting people in the background. People missing quite a bit of their front teeth, people in bathing suits they should NOT have been wearing, etc. Oh, if my family is enjoying the beauty of nature, your family blowing cigarette smoke in our faces tends to dampen it for us. I had a moment where I fantasized about dousing their cigarettes with my sons squirt gun, but.. well.. they scared me, so I decided against it.
(Oh! While cleaning our bedroom on Saturday, I found some of Jim's old artwork that I plan to post next. You do NOT want to miss that one).
(I'm planning to change the look of my blog. I already changed the background, but might change it again. Stay tuned...)
