Tasty Tidbits

  • Emily’s last day of school is this week. Her class is having theme days every day this week. Tomorrow is sports day. She gets to wear her new OU t-shirt. It’s pink.
  • I’ve been packing Emily’s lunch for the last few weeks. I’ve just been putting “stuff” in it – peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, rolled up slices of ham, string cheese, yogurt, chips, cookie. Just whatever I have on hand. She’s LOVING this because she had been eating lunch in the cafeteria for months. The main reason I’m packing the lunch now is that the school will no longer allow her to charge her lunch because the school year is nearing an end. And I don’t exactly know how much a lunch costs each day. Lame, I know.
  • We went to our local home improvement store this weekend and ordered a storage building for our yard. So far, they have not called to schedule delivery. And, you know me, if they don’t start doing right by me, then I’ll have to start naming names on my blog. And you know they don’t want that!
  • On Sunday night, a bad hail storm came through our town. Many people have horror stories of hail stones going all the way through shingles and the roof deck and right into their living room. Many windows were busted out on both homes and cars.
  • Did you know that the largest recorded hail stone was something like 7.5 inches in diameter? Mike told me this. He knows all about it.
  • We’re expecting more bad weather tomorrow. I know this because Mike keeps telling me that “Wednesday looks interesting”. When he says this, I hear “Wednesday looks dangerous.”
  • This is a three-day work week for me. I’m taking a few days off to celebrate Emily’s last day of school and her first day of summer vacation! I want to spend as much time with her as I can now before we become a family of four!
  • I saw on the news that Sonic now has “real” ice cream. (Not sure why this was news.) So today at lunch, I went to Sonic to check out this new feature. And while I believe them that it’s “real” ice cream (why do they need the quotation marks if it’s really real?), I didn’t think the ice cream had much taste. Am I the only one who feels this way?
