Wow, it's been a whole week since I posted last. Hm, what's been going on?

Well, we had a nice long weekend at home for Memorial Day. We spent a lot of it outside around the yard working on things. I spent too much time at Lowe's debating over painting or not. I finally bought some random yard tools that I needed, but I haven't had much chance to use them. Thyme had her vet appointment on Saturday, so I've been keeping a close eye on her. She is still sleeping a lot, but she finally came up to me lat night in the computer room wanting attention, so I guess that means the ickiness of her shots is wearing off.

We spent some time Sunday at the library and the park. Jack managed not to hurt himself, so that's good. : ) On Monday, we tried to work in the back yard, but ended up spending most of the time talking with our neighbor. She has two little kids, a girl who is finishing kindergarten now and a little boy who is 3.5 almost. Jack really liked playing with their t-ball set, so I think we need to see what the park district is offering this summer. Afterall, we certainly won't be in a play. ; )

Our neighbor (Megan) invited us over to their cookout later, so we got to meet her mom and Uncle. It was too funny because Jack starte calling him "Uncle David" because, well, that's his name, but he's not Jack's uncle, so. And Jack does have an Uncle Dave. *g*

The kids had fun playing around, roasting marshmellows, and trying to play basketball. We ended up spending quite a bit of time working on the basketball stand to lower the hoop. That was interesting. Eventually, we got it down, and the kids took some time shooting around. Hopefully, we can start spending some more time with them so Jack has some friends in the neighborhood. They are pretty much the only kids his age on the block, except for the grandkids who visit across the street every now and then.

Today is computer day for Jack at school, and tomorrow is Touch a Truck at the park. I am going to keep Jack home and just go to the event ourselves since he has his doctor's appointment for a physical in the afternoon. There's no reason to be running back and forth all day long.

I guess that's it. No wonder I haven't written anything. Dull, dull, dull. : p
