For some completely insane reason my dh insists on driving with the windows down. Why did we pay extra for the air conditioning if we're not going to use it? The point is, while drive to the air show at March Air Force Base yesterday, ( with the windows open! ) I killed a fly with my sunglasses. Well, the fly hit my sunglasses, thereby killing itself. The really super gross part was that the dead fly landed in my lap and after finding something suitable for fly removal I then had to clean fly guts off my sunglasses. However, it makes the $182 I spent on these veree cool, sophisticated looking sunglasses completely worth the outrageous amount. Who knows? If I had been wearing my cheapo $5 from WalMart the fly may have shattered the glasses and lodged itself in my eye! Maybe next time I'll try catching the bugs in my teeth.

What is up with headbands? I bought some for myself when my hair was shorter and the darn things kept slipping off! So I gave them to my daughter thinking that maybe my head was just too fat. Fortunately that's not the case because they kept slipping right off of her head too. I suppose it's possible that we just have really small heads. Today while shopping I bought her some child sized headbands, not the kind that are like giant rubber bands, but regular head bands. Those won't stay on her head either. I know these things work, cause I've seen several people wear headbands succesfully. I just refuse to accept that my daughter and I have misshapen heads.
and another thing! . . . . . .
Why is it that when you go to the trouble of cleaning out the car your children then find something that instantly converts to crumbs and dump it on the back seat? I spent a good hour on saturday cleaning out our truck and what did my daugther do today? She brought along for the ride to school half a dozen barbies and for the ride home, a bag of potato chips which are now residing on the back seat of the truck in a million tiny pieces. Just the chips, not the barbies. I just had a horrible visual of dismembered barbies all over my car. Yuck!!!
this is the last thing, I promise, really . . . . .
We had a nice weekend. The weather finally decided to straighten itself out and give us something that actually resembled spring. Saturday I helped my son practice baseball, then I convinced him to help me clear all the crap from our lawn so dh could mow the lawn. The lawns have not been mowed in a good two or three months, probably longer for the back lawn. Our backyard looked like a rain forest and our frontyard looked like we were trying to start a weed farm. After the clearing of much trash, toys, and lost small animals I went inside and told dh that we cleared the lawns so he could mow them. Not exactly subtle, but the fact that every time we let the dog go into the backyard we lost him for three days didn't really seem to be driving the point home. After that we just lazed around and enjoyed the lovely weather. Katie ( my daughter ) and I sat on the patio and ate lots of yummy fruit and made fun of the boys.
Sunday we went to the air show, as I mentioned before already and on the way home stopped off at a park to play. I went down the twisty slide several times and enjoyed the swings to the amazement or embarassment of my children. Even better was that I didn't have to cook dinner that night!
