Last Summer L was living in Spain and T came to visit, bringing L's October birthday presents with her and hiding them throughout the house with scavenger hunt hints. Well one of the gifts has never been located.
Yesterday I was working in the laundry room and came across a gift wrapped and labeled for L. I gladly brought it in to her delighted that I had finally found the missing gift from a year ago!!! We called T on the phone so she would be "with" us as L opened the gift!!! The girls were giggling and when L ripped off a corner I knew I had made a mistake!!!
Fast forward to earlier this summer. L was at a wedding and T & I went shopping and found a perfect gift for L for THIS birthday. Since T was dropping me off at the airport I asked her to take it home and wrap it and put it in the shelves where we keep gifts and wrapping paper.
Yep, you guessed it, it was the gift for THIS birthday. I'm sure you NEVER do anything like that. We were guffawing all day at my latest foible. I am the constant source of hilarity among my offspring. Cheez Whiz... I hope I have lifted your spirits!!!
Blessings Dear Ones!!!

Rememeber the surfer cult movie "Endless Summer"? Oh, what a dream... neverending summer. Of course that's the lure of tropical paradises. Well, it ain't happenin' here...
It's official... the end of the summer is visible. I can see it from here... I just attended Summer Conference which for all intents and purposes signifies "that's it, that's all you get"! sniffle I actually have 2 more weeks. Some teachers I spoke with go back on Monday. IN JULY!!! Can you imagine? (oh, maybe that's you too). It's time to gather my school supplies, get my head in the teaching mode and think about organizing my course schedules, start finding shoes besides flip flops and sandals.
One more trip, to NY, to celebrate GG1's 5th birthday!! I get to take her back to school shopping for her FIRST DAY of school!!! We are both excited!!!!
I can do this I can do this I can do this.

We have roadrunners here in the Ozarks too. In fact just had one run across the road in front of me and up the driveway of the house I was passing. No coyote tho'.

Ah, but when we get into extended family it gets crazy, K & an R, and M & H then a B and oops it all goes off my theory with another R and my sissy T and her C and more then more repeats and oh well. It works only for the immediate clan.
