And it's winter now, at least a month earlier than we expected.
The kids are happy enough about it.
We had lunch with my parents and my sister, pizza and lots of laughing.
And then we got to the pool and parked the car and realized we'd forgotten the towels at home.
"Dance around like idiots laughing, and don't even grab the damned towels. Your behavior today is really not impressing me."
(They have been super squirrely and also argumentative with each other. ANNOYING.)
Going home and returning was just so unamusing, but then I remembered Kohl's is just around the block, so we went to damn Kohl's and bought towels while they waited in the car.
When I got back in the car, in the dark, it seemed like things were wet on the console where the shifter is. I turned on the light and it was full of my diet coke they'd somehow knocked over!
I yelled some more about what were they doing, and this can't get wet, and the compartment where I throw coins was full to the brim, so I stuffed a corner of a towel in there to mop up, all the while bitching.
Finally we made it into the water.
But we didn't realize all her newfound energy and ridiculousness were medication side effects--her eating everything and begging at the table, raiding the wastebasket, having to go outside at 6 am, humping the kids, just generally being a lot busier dog was the medicine.
Tim still talks a little bit like the Little Tim used to with the overly round vowels. He laughed and said, "Oh yeah, first he ate garbage. THEN he humped the kids."
Oh my goodness. There he is playing Subway Surfer.
Onward. We can do it. love you all so, Val, aka MOM, aka Grandma
