More Silly Pet Tricks and Some Random Thoughts

I know – I need to take some new photos. But here’s yet another example of our kids’ silliness. I continue to be amazed by the energy Chloe and Sophie display minutes before bedtime. Funny how that happens.

The girls had another fun-filled day. Sophie had a “date” with her little friend who is a boy (note the determined resistance to using the word ‘boyfriend’), and after an abbreviated school day because of excessive heat, the girls and our babysitter went to the swim club.

Every time we go to the swim club (and we’ve used it five times so far), I rejoice in how much less it’s costing us per day as we increase the frequency of our visits. And we’re only at the beginning of June. And it’s not even officially summer yet. I hesitate to get too excited at the thought that this might have actually been a wise investment. But so far, so good.

We had a crazy rain storm a little earlier tonight. The lightning was directly overhead for about an hour, and we actually noticed a small leak in our sunroom (yet another unplanned expense – just great). I kept thinking of all the trees that haven’t yet fallen on our house.

Father’s Day is approaching, and of course, I am without many ideas. My husband is talking about an iPod. We’ll see. I’m not convinced he’d actually use it, but then again, I suppose I should accord him the benefit of the doubt. He’s a very difficult person to shop for – because either he doesn’t have any ideas of his own, or the ideas he has are simply cockamamie.

I’m tired, it’s late and it’s way past my bedtime. A demain.
