In a week

In the past week...

...I ate a Peanut Buster Parfait for the first time in about 20 years. That last bite in the bottom of the cup that is nothing more than glob upon glob of hot fudge still makes me gag, but it was still dang good.

...I switched to Google Chrome. And while I continually try to hit "refresh" on the right side of the address bar I still big puffy pink heart it.

...I earned $30.

...I have been reminded that if we would just have a "love them like Jesus" attitude toward every person we encounter the world would be better. I am working very hard on this.

...we got copies of the two new Guitar Hero for NintendoDS and I think I've given myself carpal tunnel.

...I have realized that it was the birth of one little boy that drew our family closer than it's ever been. I am so thankful for that little boy because I am so much more thankful for my family now.

...we took off driving on one of Paul's days off and spent pretty much the entire day in the truck. The original purpose of the excursion was to shop for pellet stoves, but instead we just drove down to the dam, visited Dairy Queen and a really stinky bait store.

...I held my breath so long in the above-mentioned bait store that I got light-headed.

...I think my couch has developed a permanent imprint of my hind-end.

...I have started writing my belated blogaversary post and have also stopped writing it while waiting for inspiration.

...I booked an Uppercase Living open house. Now to paint the living room so I can justify buying pretty words to put on my walls...

...I have discovered that the ants invading my home are purely nocturnal. I wake up at 5:30 in the morning and there are dozens of the little buggers scurrying around my sink and after killing them all and repeatedly mumbling curses on their little three-sectioned bodies while I wait for the coffee to brew, there are no more to be seen until the next morning. Go figure.

...I have been let down and disappointed.

...I have been uplifted and encouraged.

...I have fallen madly and deeply in love with my new Crocs flipflops.

...I have seriously wondered if we scared off our Amish friend because it's nearly July and we haven't heard back from his bearded little self.

...I grounded my two oldest children for having a flippin' knock down dragout wherein brother punched sister and sister threw brother into a desk. It's like an episode of WWE around here at any given moment.

...summer has come to Oklahoma even though summer won't even officially get here until tomorrow. It's been so Oklahumid here it's nearly swimmable.

...I sweat right down my butt crack not once but twice.

...I have realized that posts like these are a serious copout - and I really only realized this in the last like, minute.

I know summer has finally come but this week and this week alone I will embrace the hot and green. After a week of gray ocean I'm enjoying this, briefly.
