Skyrockets in flight...Afternoon Delight!

That title got your attention, didn't it?  Well, I'm sorry to tell you that it has absolutely NOTHING to do with this blog post.  I heard that song (aah...memories of middle school) on the radio earlier and now it is stuck in my head.  I thought I'd share. :-))

Today has been crazy.  Crazy!  I'll give a brief recap, and then I am going to have a glass of wine and call it a day.

Last night the kids' youth group had a babysitting fundraiser, and Paige went home with a friend and spent the night.  I picked Paige up at 9:30, put gas in the van because it was running on fumes, and ran Clay to McDonald's for a Taekwondo carwash fundraiser. 

 Then Paige and I went to run some errands before picking Clay up and taking him to Panera's for an AP exam review session for his AP Human Geography class.  (As an aside, I have to mention how awesome this teacher is, especially since I have written so much about the heinous teacher from Hell so much.)  While he was there reviewing, Paige and I ran more errands at Target 
and then went back to Panera to (finally) have lunch and wait for Clay to finish.

While we waited, Paige indulged in a little light reading for the research paper she is working on.  She shared this little tidbit with me as I was eating my sandwich...

"Eeww...Mom, did you know that they used to take dried mummy parts and use them as drugs?"

(cough, cough, gag) 
"Umm, no I didn't."

"Gross, huh?"

Yes.  And thanks for sharing, honey!

Clay finished up around 3:30, we gave one of his friends a ride home and then - you'd THINK we'd be finished, wouldn't you?


Nope.  We ran home to let our poor, long-suffering Lucy out, and then I took Clay over to mow the lawn at my uncle's house.  He has a business arrangement to mow his lawn every week.  Which means I have to run him over there.


Did I mention that the temperature was 92 degrees today?

May I just point out that our lawn has yet to be mowed - he is doing that in the morning!!  

Anyway...I'm too tired to think of anything else to say.  I'm going to have a glass of this:

1.  Yes, I know that the picture is sideways.  I'm too tired to go back and switch it.  Turn your head sideways.
2.  Mad Housewife wine?  You KNOW I had to get that!  
3.  I am SO glad I did.
