The Small Things in Life

Yesterday, I received a free sample in the mail. One of my favorite words is free. The package contained Kotex maxi pads. Two of them were overnight pads, approximately the size of school buses. I was looking forward to seeing if they worked. And then it hit me. The most exciting moment of my life in the last month was me looking forward to test driving a maxi pad. Does this mean I am easily pleased by the small things? Or does this mean my life is pitiful? I'm on the fence with this one.
Last month we took the chance to do a family thing and went to Lake Tahoe. Dave Ramsay would not have approved. But we had a great time.

We went out to eat at a buffet and Azure saw some crawdads. She asked what they were. I told her you suck the juice out of their heads. Her reply was, "awesome!"

A man behind us snickered. I told him you really do suck the juice out of their heads. He wasn't laughing at that. He was laughing at her reply.

My little tomboy...


Not much is going on here. We are impatiently waiting for school to end. June 17th is the day. Everybody has had summer fever since mid-May. Hurry up and be done, school!
