Katie and I were eating ice cream cones the other day while discussing good nutrition. She said she was going to work the ice cream off in gym the next day. I said I was going to work it off in bed that night MEANING IN MY DREAMS. The kids started laughing and Todd snapped his head up and said, You mean it’s that time of year already? Yeah. Funny guy.
That same afternoon was Taylor’s first day at his new job. The grocery store didn’t pan out, but he did get a job with a lawn care service. Four of the six yards they worked that evening were in our neighborhood, one of them right next door. So while he was using the trimmer I snuck out behind our shed, humming the Mission Impossible theme, and took a picture of him. I don’t think I got a picture of him on his first day of school, but by golly I got a picture of him on his first day of work.
I was soaking in the tub when he got home and didn’t actually see him until the next morning. But he told Todd one of the guys asked him if that lady taking a picture of him from behind the shed was his mom.
Friday night we went to dinner with our friends Dave and Barb. We were talking about my exceptional stealthiness and decided it would have been hysterical if I’d gone across the lawn and said something like, “Does my big boy need some water?”
Yesterday was the Women’s quarterly brunch at church and it was, as usual, exceptional. Now I can hardly wait until June! I have to find new friends to sit with, though. Some of the ladies at my table were rather boisterous and we got in trouble. When you’re quiet and subdued like me those wild women can be a bit overwhelming.
