This photo was taken of Scooter before the rains came to Oklahoma. It has been warm, humid, and raining since Monday. Everything is soaked and muddy. I am going stir crazy being stuck indoors.
This week has been a busy one. I have accomplished a lot. But, I still feel like I am overwhelmed with all the things that still need done.
My posting might become a bit sporadic since summer is upon us. Now that Wee One is big enough to go and do things, Im going to be busier than ever…not to mention Son #1 and his summer league games. He has one tonite at 8pm in a town over an hour away. That is too late! I wont mind when schools out but during the school week, I think that is crazy.
Today I have to go thru all of Wee One’s baby things that are packed away and wash up some of the baby clothes. Ive already went thru the baby toys, washed up the walker, babyswing, and high chair. Our dear sweet 16yo babysitter B. is having a baby boy in a couple of weeks. Yes, you heard me right, this star athlete and excellent student has gotten herself knocked up by a cowboy from up North.
I first suspected something wasnt right with her around X-mas. Guess I was right. She told me back in late February she was pregnant. Her family doesnt have much money, they are not on welfare or anything like that, they work but money is always tight in their household. Buying new things for the baby is going to make it tough on B. and her family.
I silenced my lectures and questions about her predicament. I am sure B. has heard it all from her family and most likely on a daily basis from her nagging mother. B. is a smart girl. She is doing fine as far as I can tell.
Wee One has been an absolute terror this week, he has not cut me any slack. He has gotten into all kinds of stuff and has tried throwing a couple of screaming fits. Gah! What a brat. Maybe he’ll behave better when we can get outside and we arent cooped up in the house.
My central AC unit is fully charged and switched on. I am happy about that. Maybe not as happy as Marvin tho.
Kitty showing Marv who’s boss…..yep, the females rule around here, or at least we try too…..even thought we are out-numbered.
