I think it is officially unofficial summer. That is when my brain shuts down for three months. But I still gotta blog.
Starter Wife: Kinda Sucks, A Lot
The first episode wasn't sooo bad. But the second? Man. I guess my problem is that I can't read romance novels. Seriously, in episode two Love Interest Sam says, "I think something's about to ignite...and I want to be there." And then they kiss. And that's when I throw up a little bit in my mouth. And yet Tivo tells me I just made it all the way through episode two. What the hell is wrong with me?
Horse Races Rock
...Even if I'm not secretly Super Lucky Lady. The last time we went - 10 years ago, I won $347 on a total bidding allowance of $20. I bet on a horse who ended up with such outrageous odds I thought he had died at the gate. He won! Not so much this time. But Jac practically whipped out a stogie and his race papers and called his bookie. He did come away a winner. We saw the whole darn Mom'sFamily Clan and it was really nice. Most notably, I finished my second Va Tech hat and gave the pair to my cousins. They turned out pretty cute, but I have got to make larger hats! Somewhere in a pattern I read it said to knit for 5 inches and then start reducing. If you do this, you have a hat that will fit my soon to be 9-year old cousin.
Can't Get Beyond the Thunder(cat) Dome
4:25 this morning. Jac and I are clinging to the last couple hours of sleep before we have to start a new week. That is until the blood-curdling growl of our cats losing their shit in the front hall. I don't know what got into these kids. Our petsitter left a note Sunday that said, "Do the cats usually hiss?" Apparently things are amiss in the unbelievably serene Cat Universe. What on Earth could they be fighting about? Whatever it is I hope it's blown over by 11 tonight.
