On Saturday we went to a Jimmy Buffet concert which started with a massive tailgating party in the parking lot. Talked with a LOT of people (everyone is your friend at the Buffet tailgating party). Met some interesting characters and waded in a homemade pool in the bed of someone’s truck. Had some margaritas. Drank some ‘good’ tequila. Managed to not puke in the heat. I didn’t over-do the drinking, it was just that hot.
On Sunday we went to a ‘back to school’ party.
On Monday the girls and I went school supply shopping (nothing like doing things at the eleventh hour).
On Tuesday we had the kindergarten open house.
On Wednesday I sent all my darling daughters to school. I had 6.5 glorious hours to myself. I cleaned house and read and talked to an old friend and colleague from my crime lab days, then I went to the Borders bookstore after dinner.
Today I had a date with my dental hygienist (FINALLY!!!) in the morning and it was as rewarding as I anticipated it would be, then I went to an educational supply store and chatted with a teacher about science experiments I’d done with the girls and then I visited my grandmother in the nursing home.
I’m so wiped out I can’t even muster the energy to write a decent post.
I’ll come back tomorrow and post some pictures and share some stories.
