So I hate summer. Let me clarify~I hate heat and humidity. So, that in turn, means I hate summer. Aren't I a total drag? I love fall. I love being able to leave my windows open and the smell of the air and falling leaves. I love mums on my farmer's porch and pumpkins on the steps. I love the colors of fall.
Anyway, I had an ok weekend. I did go for a haircut, and it's new and different and I'm still trying to figure out how to make it work. So no photos for now. Sorry. I also spent a bit of time at Border's wandering around looking for new books. I did pick out 3 for myself and have started on Jody Picoult's Vanishing Acts. It's very good, and I want to read it all day long. Oh, but those darn kids always NEED stuff, like snacks, or diapers, or timeouts. Reading is relegated to the evenings.
Yesterday I took Meg over to her school so she could play on the playground with her friend Benton. His mom and I sat under a tree, drinking coffee. It was really quite lovely. And even though it was raining, the kids had a blast. There was no fighting, no yelling, just fun. There is something to be said for playdates on neutral ground. So of course she is having another friend here at the end of the week. I hope the weather holds so they can go outside.
I've been battling with Meg's IPod Shuffle. When I open ITunes and plug in the Shuffle, ITunes doesn't recognize it. I don't know what to do, and the "help" section on the Apple site doesn't help at all. The poor kid just wants some Hannah Montana and Van Morrison on her IPod (I know, weird for a 7 year old, but she just loves "Brown Eyed Girl"). Anyone have any suggestions?
Oh darn, my "free" hour is up. The kids' tv show is over and I guess that means I need to find a way to keep them quiet while the twins nap. Must be storytime.
