This & That Thursday

Random stuff...
*I was so excited to receive a "just catching up" phone call from a friend from Robertsdale Tuesday night. Rita and I would get together regularly to run (or half jog/half walk...whatever). The exercise accountability was great and all, but having an hour to talk with a sweet friend is what I miss most about her.  I'm not gonna lie, I shed a few tears when we hung up (and several times later that night)... Loneliness is hard y'all! And this is coming from an introvert!

* Speaking of introvert... Have I ever mentioned that instead of "shy" or "quiet" I jokingly refer to myself as "selectively social?" If I go out of my way to talk to you, consider yourself special. My kids have this tendency too. The 3 of us can get obnoxiously loud, but not until we become comfortable and that can sometimes take a while.

* I worry... A lot... About everything... I worry so much that I keep myself up until the wee hours of the morning just so that I can crash from exhaustion rather than be alone with my thoughts while I fall asleep like a regular person.

Now that we've determined I'm borderline crazy... let's move on to the fabulous kids I've got!

* Audrey won a prize for the robot she built for the library's summer kids program. Go, Audrey!

* Julia found a tick in her hair today. "Mom!!!! There's a bump on my head and it's hanging off a little!!" It was already dead. I removed the other half, cleaned her scalp with rubbing alcohol, and immediately googled the symptoms of Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, because (despite Matt's eye rolls) that is the natural reaction!

* We marked off another item on our summer "to do" list today - homemade ice cream in a bag. It was easy and pretty tasty! :)

*The girls have been helping me a little more often in the kitchen. Audrey cut up strawberries today (to serve on top of the ice cream we made!) and here is Julia dicing potatoes for dinner.

* That's about it - thanks for reading! Blogging makes me feel connected to others. I need that right now.
