Do Not Use The Diving Board When The Swimming Pool Is Empty

"Hi Honey, I'm Home!"
Called home yesterday to check in with K before we left, and D anwered the phone! His paver had broken down, so the company sent him home for a 4-day weekend. He'll be on nights starting next Tuesday night. The kids are thrilled they get to spend some extra time with him:)
We are headed north once again, to clean out our storage unit up at the old place! Yay...it's only been delayed umm...6 MONTHS now? And yes, while the timing might be a little better in a week or so, to coincide with the Fish Fry, there's no guarantees the spouse will have that Saturday off again. So better to grab the opportunity while we can...
90 minutes later.....
Aaaaaaaaack! We no sooner got on the highway than the blasted, POS VAN broke down! Why IS it every time we try to clean out our storage and TRY to save ourselves an extra expense, SOMETHING GOES WRONG?????? Yes, I'm throwing a temper tantrum. Got three woeds for that stupid van of mine: CASH FOR CLUNKERS! OOOOOHHHHH!!!
Next week is looking rather crazy. Monday, have to take S and W to the clinic for their booster shots. Tues is S's Freshman Orientation and school registration; Wednesday we'll go school shopping; and Thursday is The Big Day...all three will be in school and I get a peaceful house once more! And let's not forget next Friday, K has his first official football game. Right now the coach has him on second-string offense, as Right Tackle, since the kid hasn't played since the 5th grade, but as I've said in earlier posts, the coach is thrilled with his attention to relearning the game and the fact he's willing to try. As the season progresses, who knows? It's his Senior Year, and he's on the football team. Which means I get to be a Football Mom this fall:)
Have good weekend and I'll be back on Monday...unless I have news tomorrow:)
