The licenser is coming

…tomorrow, on a Sunday, to verify that the alarms are in place and the outlets are covered. I sent her photos friday just so there’s evidence that I acted right away. For bonus points, I added an oven safety catch and made my mom clean the porch.

My sister’s dog has been staying but it’s time for him to go back. Nothing is worse than barking when your kid has just fallen asleep, finally, for a nap… and now bam, she’s up again, and also barking enthusiastically. We will miss his crumb eating and the way he quickly cleans up spills, though.

And is it ever going to stay warm up here? I’m sooo tired of the mall play area. It’s free, that’s the thing. And she seems to like it. Today, however, one mom had really lost her mind and was leading about 10 toddlers and 15 school aged children in a game of tag, then hide-n-seek, then a pretend school. A grown adult mom! The rest of us parents and grandparents were so exhausted from being inside chasing cabin-fevered children through our houses for the last 9 months, that we could only stare in amazement at the mom with energy to spare.
