Rise & Shine

Up again early this morning, but this time Sean is up too. Miss Lilly is making it almost six hours during the night, which is remarkably well for her age. The puppy training pads are going to be a help in housebreaking her. Sean has her playing in the family room. She especially likes this on large stuffed bone that squeaks. This morning everyone is up with her. Thank goodness for coffee and cable.

We are gong to be a busy bunch today - lunch out, the Republican Round-up, I could have gone to my 25th class reunion [but didn't want to], plus a few errands, and Sean has a birthday party to go to this evening. I know that we'll all be tired this evening.

Lunch was fantastic out with LG at the Great American Steak & Buffett - LG's cooking was delicious as always. Sean opened his birthday present from her while we were there - an mp3 player. He is going to enjoy it quite a bit, it will give him something to listen to on long drives and times when we must sit and wait forever. Sean & I ran a few errands this afternoon after lunch, we purchased the worming medication and 7-in-1 shot for Lilly, plus stopped off at Walter's to drop off his laundry and feed the boys.

I took this really cute photo of Sean & Lilly asleep in the passenger seat of the car on the way home from errands this afternoon. They just looked so darn cute it was impossible not to take their photo.

The Republican Round-Up turned out was great, the attendance topped that of last year! George Allen and Eric Cantor spoke and energized the crowd. Brock's Barbeque was catering the event and the food was terrific, as well as the entertainment. I've got the bumper stickers for the car window and signs for the yard. Sean had a good time also - barbeque, hot dogs, cookies, popcorn & cotton candy all to fill up all the hollow spaces of a teenager. Miss Lilly had really missed everyone while we were gone and showed everyone lots of love when we got home.

We arrived back home in time for everyone to catch their breath before Sean headed off to a birthday party at the skating rink. The boys even had time to take a short nap to recoup from the events of the morning. It will be around 10:30 p.m. before he gets back home, but he'll definitely have fun.

A Dollar Per Point

A professor was giving a big test one day to his students. He handed out all of the tests and went back to his desk to wait. Once the test was over the students all handed their tests back in. The professor noticed that one of the students had attached a $100 bill to his test with a note saying "A dollar per point."

The next class the professor handed the tests back. That student got his test back and $64 change.


I bought a box of self-improvement tapes-- "How To Handle Disappointment". I got it home and the box was empty.
