Children’s author Bernard Waber passed away. He wrote and illustrated the Lovable Lyle stories. My sister and I read them when we were little. I read them to my little brothers. And now I’ve read them to my children. They’re absolutely perfect in every way.
The reporting on the Oklahoma tornado is grotesque. They’re a half step away from a facebook body count graph where all the idiots will ‘like’ it — Disrespectful and in such poor taste.
Woke up at 7:15 this a.m. and the kids were still asleep. This never happens. Everything was set up so we got dressed, ate cereal and grabbed our lunches on the way out the door. Was just about to put the car in reverse when the kids yelled, “MOM! The garage door’s still shut.” Oh. Yes. Wide awake, kittens. I am wide awake.
Do you know how airline credit cards work? I signed up for two, a visa sponsored by Delta and Citibank with Southwest mile rewards. First time I used a TV advertisement to research credit. Thanks Alec Baldwin! Curious to see if we earn more rewards by daily ok let’s be realistic here weekly/monthly purchases. I could never swipe a credit card daily. NEVER! Just by booking our California trip we have thousands of points. Are these shareable, swappable and redeemable for other items? What do you know?
You wanna hear something cool? I just e-mailed my car. This is from me, the same driver, who used Bluetooth for the first time this year. What? Why? Because until this year I got along with a flip phone while driving a thirteen year old odyssey. It was just how I operated. But now current technology has a hold of me. I feel unlimited power and it is fun a lot of FUN!
School year dragging on for anyone else? I still get to ride a charter bus with two third grade classes to our statehouse to meet the Governor and…AND…AND volunteer for field day which for any parent who has done this before knows the joy I speak of. Pure joy I tell you. I have end of the year class party bags ready for the sweet sweet sweet faced k5er’s. Is it too weird to put sunscreen in each one? Just a mini SPF…take my job as room mother very seriously.
This is to you, a certain reader.
I know you’re goading me. You. Yeah, you. I won’t take the bait. You should get your own photo ideas, by the way.
Hubs has been working on the new X4 during the day people, THE DAY. He worked like a normal professional. It lasted about three days now he’s back to vampire shift. Shift ‘A’ likes him a lot. They put in a good work for him to transfer to the design team. You know what that might mean? Future travel to Germany for the design team. I can hope, right? Ich hoffe, dieser Traum wird wahr – I hope this dream comes true!
My lunch was parmesan goldfish and a tuna salad mixed with sriracha and a side of fresh fruit.
What’s on your lunch menu?
