Raves: Two treats=two posts

So TWO posts in one day, I know, what's gotten into me...Two is the Magic Number of the Day because today I enjoyed two fun treats. First, thanks to the mad babysitting skills of Brooke, I was able to sneak off to a much needed hair appointment--I'm not kiddin'--I had like three inches of roots showing. And since life's too short to get the same color each time, I decided on a mix of golden blond and red highlights. I had to settle with a less wild red than my hairstylist excitedly convinced me of when I remembered that I'm in charge of teaching the 12 and 13 year old girls at church and I didn't want any disturbed parents calling me because my cherry Kool-Aid colored hair was setting a bad example for their impressionable teenagers. But there is some definite red in my fro as a fun little change for the next couple months.

My second treat was anonymously delivered by a sneaky Sonic drive-by. Ah, what a refreshingly bubbly Diet Coke surprise to find on the front porch. And since I'm not sure whom to thank, THANKS! I hope that gets to the right person--though I have my guesses based on the Chuck E. Cheese paper the little note was written on. I'm practically Sherlock Holmes, you know.

Tonight I had to take the freak show on the road to drive across town to deliver Jeremy clean clothes for the rest of the week--he's been staying at a hotel down there so he doesn't have to drive all the way home and back in the wee hours of the morning, but for some reason he only took enough stuff for half the week. Grrr. So an hour and 55 minutes later, we are back home with very sore buns. The kids were a little miffed that when we finally got there, they didn't even get to get out of their carseats. Jeremy came and talked to us at the car for about 10 minutes and then had to get back in to plan out tomorrow's attack plan. I volunteered to swap places with him, but he passed on the offer with some lame excuse about me not having a law license. Ah, malpractice-shmalpractice. I think he just didn't want to deal with putting the kids to bed either.

I think you should have gone full on kool aid red too! They just put a Sonic by me and I love it, went for Happy Hour today. I feel like I am back in Texas, without that excesive heat that you were talking about!! Oh, and I want a BNL CD too! I love the They Might be Giants and I am getting a little tired of Sharpay and Troy and the Backyardagians. Yes we must listen to it all the time or she freaks out. Yes, she is only 10months old I am in trouble!! I'll send you an email!!
