~1~ I went for a walk this morning along the beach and encountered a woman walking the biggest dog I have ever seen. It wasn't a dog ... it was a horse. And instead of carrying a sandwich bag in which to scoop up poop, she carried a black, hefty trash bag. YIKES.
~2~ Guest bloggers. I've started something, I see that now (see previous two posts). I heard that my brother in-law might want to write and/or contribute. Let me think, let me think . . . No.
~3~ So, one evening we piled in my van and headed to Coligny Plaza (shopping & evening entertainment). I drove all the way there, parked, and THEN realized I did not have my wallet with me (it was in my beach bag because earlier my sister and I had plans for a couple of poolside daiquiris ... but that's another story). When it was time to head back, I handed my sister the keys and, on cue, we all double-checked our seat belts because once upon a time she totaled my car (true story). She turned on the ignition, went to put the car in drive, and instead turned on the windshield wipers at top speed.
~4~ Like good mothers, this week we have made sure to provide square meals for the boys. Case in point: last night we ordered a square pizza from Pies R Squared. And for veggies, we threw a token bag of carrots on the table. No one ate the carrots.
~5~ One day, while sorting through a clearance bin at Barnes & Noble, my sister came across William & Kate paper dolls and handed them to me (or maybe I snatched them). Anyway, I spent a good part of yesterday cutting out the outfits and ignoring questions from the boys who just didn't get the whole paper doll thing. What do you do with them? Do you have a fashion show, or something? Who wants to play with paper? That's just stupid. Sigh. But look ... how fun is this? Besides, how else would you be able to see Prince William in boxers?
~6~ You might think that a week at the beach without our husbands meant all this freedom to go outlet shopping, but remember ... we also have three BOYS with us. We did go to the mall for all of twenty minutes, but it was just enough time to purchase these cute sneakers. And if you tell me they look like bowling shoes I am not talking to you anymore. I really love these sneakers.
~7~ A starfish, sand castles, and two sisters.
