Rain Rain GO AWAY

We haven't had more than a couple nibbles of summer so far. A day here, a day there. I'm really hoping that it's been crappy out just to wait for me to be off on vacation. We'll see. Major thunderstorms here today.

Last night was a decent evening. Kelly and Doug were having internet troubles with their new wireless router so I was going to walk over with Cooper to have a look. Chris and Carter came along too, much to my surprise and delight! Unfortunately the internet problem was beyond my fixabilities, and Doug had already done all the same troubleshooting I tried. We had a visit anyway, and Kelly dug out her coloured hairspray she had mentioned she had ever since Carter saw Ben's bright blue hair last month. Carter has been telling me he wants red hair ever since.

So Kelly took Carter in the bathroom with two cans of coloured hair spray. Cooper went to supervise but didn't want any on himself. Kelly expertly divided Carter's hair into two distinct halves. I wondered how she divided it so perfectly, and she admitted to having used a piece of cardboard to get such a straight line. Of COURSE I took pictures; here they are!

He was reeeeeeeeeeally happy! That smile is his real real smile. Love it. We walked home and drove to Dairy Queen for ice cream. I had a hot fudge sundae (sort of...she filled it so full with ice cream there was barely any room for fudge.) Of course I ate it anyway. We came home and watched Spiderwick Chronicles again, and a rerun of House after the kids zonked out. My internet wasn't working either, and I wasn't sure if it was a global problem or if Shaw had cut off my internet. I called to tell them I wanted to cut back my cable for the summer down to basic cable. (But keep my high-speed internet of course!!!) Anyway, she advised me that they have a 'summer retention' program where they will discount my cable to $19.95 per month (leaving my internet at regular price)...BUT NOT CANCEL ANY OF OUR EXISTING CHANNELS!!! Huh? Seriously? That rocks bigtime. So for July to September I'll save thirty or forty bucks on our cable bill without any decrease in service. Weird. But good!

I carried Cooper to his bed and left Carter in the living room with Chris. I'm not sure what time Chris came to bed but he left Carter sleeping on the couch. By morning Carter had switched positions on the couch. So on one armrest of the couch there was a big orange blotch and on the other there was a big green blotch. It was hilarious. I ought to have taken a picture of that. The first thing Carter did was head for the mirror to check if his hair was still all cool. He did lose a little on the couch but there was still plenty left!

He was pretty proud to show Alana his nifty hair when we got to her house. I took the Jeep in for an oil change this morning and got dropped off in their service shuttle. Work was good. So many people are on vacation we were reduced to a skeleton crew so one of our nurses suggested we have a pizza party at lunch. Everyone who was there participated and we ordered pizza for delivery. I picked up the Jeep after lunch and brought lunch to Chris.

The afternoon was quiet much like the morning. I picked up the kids after work and we stopped in to see Chris. I stopped at 7/11 to pick up some chicken chunks for the kids and we came home. I changed my clothes and Kelly picked me up for BINGO! We met up with Mom and traveled through the pouring rain to the Bingo hall. Yes, of course we had fun as usual, but we didn't win anything. Which...sucked.

I came home to check our lotto tickets and that wasn't overly fruitful either. A few free tickets for next week. So stay tuned to find out if I become a multi-millionaire next week. In the meantime I'll be returning to work on Monday. ::sigh::

Well, that's about it for now. Hopefully it will get nice out at some point this weekend so we can do something fun. I'd really like to get the camper ready, but I do have a mountain of laundry to do, and on our way back from Bingo, Kelly and I stopped at Safeway to pick up on their super duper laundry soap special. Liquid one get one free. It took us awhile to find the right size and display but we loaded up to our limit of three per customer. Seriously I have absolutely NO excuse not to get some laundry done this weekend!
