I've got the house cleaned, wine chilling, cake frosted, butter warming (for cornbread), book read, bathroom scrubbed and table set for the Bumbles tonight. I feel so pulled together right now that I'm positive I've forgotten something.
Team Testosterone has no school this afternoon, so I'm taking them and their buddies to play laser tag. Yes, I have ulterior motives--keeping my house clean AND getting to play laser tag. Win-win.
I demonstrated a few of my new bo staff tricks to my karate pal, L, last night and she told me they look good. The most complicated one involves spinning it around one leg while I turn--it feels really awkward, but apparently it looks cool. Will have to enlist a kid to videotape it just so I can see for myself. The boy who teaches me these bo staff tricks is incredible. He makes everything look amazing.
And now I've just looked outside and noticed our yard. Yesterday was recycling day and the dumb dog goes around foraging and brings back cans and jars from other people's bins. Of course Jax's treasures are all over our yard, making the dead lawn look even worse--if such a thing were possible. At least he doesn't crap in our yard, so we've got that going for us...
