I didn't have time to post an update last week, which is just as well. Not too much going on, but here's the latest ...
Had a pretty splendid barbecue last weekend in honor of the kids' camp friends and their parents. I'm so impressed with Usdan and the people it attracts (except for this guy, but that's another story) Speaking of Usdan, my daughter was in a fabulous production of Once Upon a Mattress this week. Kudos to all involved for putting on such a great show. And congrats to my little bunny on her wonderful solo. I've been spending a lot of time writing and rewriting these past few weeks. One particular challenge was writing song lyrics for a teenage boy character in the 1970s. I thought my head might explode. My husband gave a great presentation on solar energy the other night. It's something we should all consider for our homes. For more info, click here. Been having a lot of fun watching my 14-year-old figure out the Rubik's Cube. I have no brain for this kind of 3-dimensional puzzle, so it really impresses the hell out of me. One unpleasant event this week--some dickless criminals broke into my minivan in the middle of the night and ransacked it, looking for a GPS that wasn't there. I keep it in the house now, because the last time I left it in the car the buggers got it. I told the local police they should keep my driveway under surveillance if they want to catch these guys. (I'm assuming criminals don't read by blog. If they do, at least I have some satisfaction in calling them dickless, which they are.)
