Holla Hump Day

This week's shout outs go to...

...everyone involved with me getting a new ride. To name a few, Sonja for watching our kids, Skip for being an expert and checking it over, and the lady they call "V" at Carmax. I truly never thought "it takes a village" could apply to buying a car as it does everything else in my life. neighbor Christy for hooking me up with a cheaper and better deal with Orkin than my pest control company was offering. Last summer when Christy would tell me that "the guy" was coming to spray her yard for mosquitos I just thought it was something you might do instead of putting bug spray on your kids. Or in addition to. I didn't know. After going outside for two nights last week and getting eaten alive I remembered how much I hate living like an itchy mess. I also really hate bug spray. However, what I hate the very most is watching my kids get bit even when they have bug spray on. Sometimes you have to pay for things that can make you happy. That's a tough lesson to learn when you don't want to pay for such things. But, we spent the entire afternoon and evening on our typically mosquito infested deck and received not one bite. That, my friends, is happiness bought. It's the little things. other neighbor Tres (Christy's husband) for making it possible for Lila to have fun at a friend's birthday party last weekend. The party was at Leapin' Lizards, and Lila is pretty scarred from a past experience at Monkey Joe's. I can't remember if I blogged about it. I would sort of be shocked if I didn't. At any rate, the gist of the story is that we were at Monkey Joe's, the power went out, the jumpies collapsed...with kids in them...who were screaming. It was AWFUL. Somehow Lila and Carson weren't in them yet. That doesn't matter though. Lila held on to that day and was 100% sure at this birthday party on Saturday that they were going to fall down with her in them. I even went so far as to tell her that things like that only happen at Monkey Joe's. Not my smartest mommy move, but I just wanted her to have a good time. I have no plans of ever going back to Monkey Joe's anyway, so what does it matter? SO, Tres carefully helped Lila through a jumpy about thirty times. He's just a big kid at heart anyway, so I know it was fun for him. I honestly would have done it myself, but he was so excited to have a reason to be one of the kids. By the end of the party she was begging to stay and having a blast!

Happy Hump Day!
