The first official school-free weekday of summer is…wet. Very wet. Thunderstorms.
That picture has nothing to do with today. I just like it. And that’s where we were at the beginning of last summer – Wilmington! We are too swamped to even leave Sparkle City. Everyone left for Memorial Day Weekend and Jack said the only fun thing to do today is play with a paper clip. Pretty sad.
We went to Blockbuster (I know, we’re the only people that still use Blockbuster) and rented the 1st Harry Potter movie, The Sandlot, and The Adventures of Super Mario Brothers III. All of my favorites. I just got finished playing Monopoly-The Clone Wars edition because Jack thought he might lose and wanted to shut it down before I turned the corner on all of my mortgaged properties.
We got the house. Yippee! I thought I would be on cloud nine when it all ended, but the whole process was so long and emotional that I am just thankful to not invest time and thought into it. At least not until the closing, which is July 30. Even though we have a contract on the house, I will not truly believe it is ours until we hold the keys and all of our stuff is sitting in boxes in all of the various rooms. Remember my great-great-great-great-great-great-granddaddy is Thomas, the disciple who doubted. We have a lot in common.
