It is FREAKIN HOT!!!!!!

We had a great weekend. Jethro and I went to Crawford, TX home of George W. Bush for a Support the Troops rally. It was cool and I'll post some pics on Payasita as soon as I can find my camera.

I realize how many people didn't get to to read the post I took down, so if you are interested, send me an email and I will send you the post.


I am in such limbo. Jethro is nearly done with school and then we have nothing but opportunity. Perhaps it is a good thing he is graduating in December. The weather will be cooler and I won't be as tempted to move to Alaska. Because the weather is HOT. I've never seen it this relentless. It has been in the hundreds for days now and it's too hot to swim. I swear when I get my pool, I'm going to put in a cooling pump instead of a heating pump. Either that or I'm going to dump blocks of ice in it.

This is the pool I want. Perhaps a little less Tiki, but this more or less has the features I'm looking for. Notice the slide over the waterfall. I want that. The only other thing I could want would be a diving board, but I would forego it for the pool bar, because what would I rather do, dive or drink? I think we all know the answer to that.


Jethro called me into the room the other day to look at his laptop. No that isn't sexual innuendo.

A billing page was up and filled out. Gwennie had been trying to purchase something. She had filled out the billing information almost perfectly. If she'd had our credit card numbers, the stuff might have actually gotten here. We went back to see what she was trying to buy. The little stinker had purchased over $250 worth of Dora toys and bedding and accessories. And even worse than that, the child actually discriminated. She had looked at many more items, but only added certain things to her shopping cart. Jethro and I had a belly laugh over it and then decided to have a talk with our little shopaholic.

Jethro: "You know these things cost money, don't you?"

Gwendolyn: "Yes, but..."

Jethro: "How did you think you were going to pay for all that stuff?"

Gwendolyn: "Well..."

Jethro: "Do you have a job?"

Gwendolyn: "No, but..."

Jethro: "Do you have any money at all?"

Gwendolyn: "No, but you do."

I think birthdays spoil her.


Emma pretends to be a little dog named Ruffie. She'll pant and bark and if you ask her her name, she'll say "Ruffie" in a puppy voice.

The cutest is when you tell her to wag her tail. Her little tushy starts wiggling really fast. But you have to look out because if she gets too close, she'll lick your face.

Sometimes I just love my kids.

Good grief, already shopping on the internet? At least she had only pulled up a toy store to shop in. And I would start putting your wallets somewhere she can't reach, otherwise you might owe Toys R US a lot of money.

Pools are a bitch to keep clean. Been there done that.

To keep a pool cool, draw up a shade screen over it, like those gree mesh thingies. If the water's still too hot in spite of being in the shade, it's time to move, LOL.
