Hello All! Happy 4th! Ry and I are in CA for the week hanging out with my parents. People keep talking about how hot it is here - HA! What a nice break from NJ.

We're getting ready to head out to the fairgrounds to see the fireworks and I'm sure I'll run into someone I know from high school (very few people leave this town).

This article made me laugh and cry. We need to educate our children better. http://www.firstcoastnews.com/news/strange/ar...

My husband took the week off and they are enjoying some time together :) I visit here once a year and alternate which boy I bring with me.

So far it appears you are... my little lilting lark of morningtide.

I was out in your neck of the woods yesterday and kept peering into backyards to see if I recognized anyone

I spent a couple hours in the backyard yesterday scrubbing a rotisserie and an electric fryer that had been sitting untouched for about three years in a corner of the kitchen. Discovered they were cacked with dried grease. Ew. Then I lit off some fireworks.

Just finally got here, been catching up from the long weekend. This whole work thing is really getting in the way of my Topix time lately.... ;)

Ugh. You are crazy. That is not a marriage, it is a publicity stunt.

I don't know that I like this west coast thing. I feel like I'm so behind everyone else. Ry said yesterday that he doesn't like CA because it took us over 3 hours to get back to my parents' house from Santa Ana (we had gone to visit my middle bro and his family this weekend and then to Legoland). No place in NJ takes 3 hours - that is one of the main things I love about it.

Happy Monday. It's warm here. It was 89 in my place at 10 p.m. last night. I posted about it on FB -- I didn't complain/whine too much, but I was so miserable (changed sweaty clothes four times, took two cool showers, etc.). but I tried to make jokes about it. Like how my dishwater wasn't cooling off so fast. ;)

But a friend showed up at work today with a perfectly functioning window AC unit they no longer need since they installed central air last summer! Woo hoo! Nick hopes to come over tomorrow night to install it for me.
