I just got back from a Mrs. in Ministry meeting. I'm really going to love going to that. I think I'm going to try to plan a game night next Tuesday at my house with some of the ladies. Can you say "Mexican Train"? CHOO CHOO!
Before my meeting (doesn't that sound important?), Quinn and I (with the boys) were invited over to Woodman and Scott's house for dinner. Woodman is my sister-in-law's sister-in-law and I love to say that. Say it three times fast. Wooh! That is soooo fun. Anyway, dinner was very good and I'm looking forward to getting to be better friends with Woodman. And maybe she'll help me with decorating ideas for my house, because she does a lot of her own decorating and it is impressive.
I dropped off an application today to be an assistant to the music teacher at Silas' elementary school. This avenue dropped in my lap yesterday, and so I'm pursuing it until it is no longer, uh, persuable. This is a huge deal, and I don't know what else to say about it right now.
I found a weird thing in the silverware drawer today. I do not know what it was, only that it kind of looked like a cross between a kidney bean and a bug with no arms, legs, antennae, or head. It totally freaked me out and I stood looking at it for a full five minutes, waiting for it to say "boo" or something. I eventually, after much encouraging coaching from myself ("it's okay- just take it to the big garbage can outside- it can't possibly get you- it has no head") snatched at it with a big paper towel and threw it in a cup and took it outside. Running. I nearly passed out. I'm okay now.
Quinn put training wheels on the little bike for Felix today. He's so excited to ride a bike like the big boys. Poor thing. He wants to be big so bad. "No momma, I not a bayba, I Beex." "No momma, I bigga now." I don't like it when he tells me he's not the bayba (pronounced Bay-bah). I do like it that he still calls me "momma doodah". I don't know where this came from, but it is sure cute. He's nearly three and I can't believe I don't have a baby in the house. Maybe later. I would love to have another baby (maybe two) someday. One big project at a time. Seminary is my baby right now. Goo goo.
My in-laws are coming on Sunday evening to take the boys until Thursday. Blink blink. Whatever will I do? Thursday, Quinn and I will drive to G'ma's for the fourth of July. Jason (Quinn's cousin) and Michelle will be there, as will Kerri (Quinn's sister) and Mitt (um, Woodman's brother and my brother-in-law), and Quinn's brother Chris. It will be a blast, as always, and we will be wall to wall people, which sounds horrible, but is actually great fun. I'm looking forward to it, as well as a wee vacation from the boys.
Perhaps I'll get the rest of the wallpaper peeled. Yeeeaaahhh, I'll probably not. I'm reading The House of the Seven Gables right now by Nathaniel Hawthorne. He's wordy with his descriptions, but I'm loving how spooky the book is. I might just have to finish reading and listen to creepy music. Mmmm, fun times for Kim. I may just throw in some Edgar Allen Poe for the heck of it. I highly recommend Poe for raising the hair on the back of your neck.
And on that note... go to bed.
