Where'd my alarm clock go?

Okay, so putting the Scotties back in the crate with Flood was all it took for her to sleep quietly until I got up to walk all of them. Just in time for Critter's aviation camp. Which starts at 8:30 this morning and then 7 am tomorrow. Maybe I'll get to sleep in on Saturday. ;)

Thunderstorm moved in yesterday evening, just as I was fixing dinner. I need to get back into the habit of turning the computer off at 5pm. It makes for more family time in the evening.

With the storm outside, it seemed only fitting that the pineapple boats be served with sailed furled, tied up in the marina. ;) I didn't bother with the toothpick masts this time.

Tigger is sick. The doctor prescribed Ceclor, and he's getting plenty of rest in between doses. The goal is to be fever-free before the sleepover on Saturday.

We've gotten back to reading Tolkein before bedtime, and have started The Return of the King. It was kind of nice to read the synopsis of the other two books, but all the human politics is still a bit confusing me, even reading it aloud to the boys. And I swear, it still feels like the white tree just springs into the plot in full wilt in the third book. The copy that we're reading has a beautiful rendering of the fortress city on its cover though. It was fun to refer back to the cover, while reading a description of the city.

Still haven't paid bills. Going to pick up what the boys decided on for Flar for Father's Day on the way back from taking Critter to Aviation camp. Then, gotta buckle down and do paperwork.

After that, I can concentrate on getting the house ready for an invasion of (entering) 3rd and 8th graders.

Tonight's date night with Knight. Gonna pick up tickets to the Scooby Movie for tomorrow.
