4th of July

The rain here in Texas that everyone has seen in the news attempted to cancel all the Independence Day plans, but not for us! Tuesday night, my nephew spent the night, and helped us begin our holiday by getting "sick" and his dad (my brother) having to come get him at 12:30 in the morning. Aren't kids so fun?? And my brother is so cute showing up in his boxers and t-shirt.

We continued our 4th holiday by going to Main Event to celebrate my friend MEM's son's birthday. He turned nine. They had a special of unlimited video games (ARGH!) and Glo-golf (glow-in-the-dark putt putt golf) for $10. A decent deal. My older two sons latched right onto that! We stayed from open (10a.m.) until about 2pm (and my older two until 5). Last night, MEM and her crew, along with my friend KB and her family, came over to enjoy Bugman's legendary brisket (yes, it should be!!). Can you believe we devoured a 15 lb. brisket? I hardly have enough left for a sandwich! Whoo hooo! Means there were fat and happy people here!

Poor KB... went on vacation for two weeks and returned to find her A/C had gone out in her house. Now for some of you up in parts of the country, that's no big deal; you might not even HAVE A/C. But for us down here in balmy, HUMID Texas, it's a crisis. So she was so happy to spend the day at Main Event, then come here.

It's 8:15 and the kids are still sleeping... Tiny was up twice during the night, so while this would normally be unusual for him, I guess not after getting up twice. It's nice and quiet except for kitty cats playing in the clothes basket. Bugman's off killing bugs in Seabrook. He fired Bubba last week from helping him on Thursdays (and doing termite jobs) so today will be the first day he's worked at the apartment complex without assistance in several months. He may hire Legoboy to help him.

What did Bubba do to get fired? Yelled at his boss (Bugman, who also happens to be his Dad) in front of a customer. Besides being embarrassing, it's also wrong. You don't yell at your Dad, and you DON'T yell at your boss. Anyone have a strong, teenage boy wanting occasional dirty work? Pay is decent, and the employer is nice!!
