This is my 100th blog post. I had actually written something on Sunday afternoon when I was very, very sad. It was another rant about my struggle in this neighborhood, as I had realized that we've lived here almost three years and I still have fewer neighbor friends than fingers on one hand. But I'm glad I didn't publish that. On Monday, I was blessed to get together with six other fantastic women who I adore, and as I went home, I counted my blessings, those six high among them.
So, here, I'll just share some random thoughts that have been floating around.
~I'm very proud that it's nearly mid-May and I've yet to turn on my air conditioner.
~I've learned you don't have to suffer through a funeral to enjoy funeral potatoes.
~My oldest daughter is REALLY GOOD at softball. It's as though Darin's baseball genes were directly transmitted to her.
~Mom, please stop asking James if I'm pregnant.
~Today, Seven Peaks passes were available at citydeals.com for only $49 each, which is the lowest price I've seen them. Also, that website offers $25 Seven Peaks gift certificates for only $20, which is another way to save since parking passes cost $25.
~Can anyone please tell me where I can buy a girl's dress? One that's not a sundress, or is sleeveless, or halter-top, or even tank top? And nothing that's going to make her look like a hobo or that I just sewed a bunch of scraps together in the shape of a skirt? I'm just looking for a normal, pretty, traditional, girl's summer dress - something that looks like it belongs on a little girl.
~Sonic has really good cheeseburgers, and I love their strawberry limeade; it's the perfect summer meal.
~I am very excited for a family reunion this summer.
