My Brother Rides an eBike to Work

I know, right??

This sort of makes me want to ride a motorized bike to work. (Keywords, sort of! HA!)

But seriously – think how much you’d save on gas!! And how much weight you’d lose! And how much deodorant you’d go through when you got to work! HA!

Look Who’s Coming to Town …

Hurricane Issac.

Issac

Course, by the time it reaches us, it’ll be a tropical storm … but WOOHOO – RAIN!! We need it. We’ve had drought conditions these past months and though I’m not exactly looking forward to the “storm” part of that tropical storm, I am looking forward to rain.

Cross your fingers that Issac stays on course!

Jazz’s Senior Picture

And suddenly, we’re here.

Kevin went with Jazz when he had his picture taken. Jazz had no interest in the whole changing outfits and posing 100 times thing, so Kevin took him to get his senior picture taken and nothing more.

However, they took several and though the one you see above is the one Jazz picked out for the yearbook, Kevin couldn’t resist buying one copy of this expression, too.

Senior year starts in two short days.

My baby is a senior … I can’t even wrap my brain around that one yet.

Taking Off Early … For a Change …

I’m HOME!! I left work at 1:00 p.m. today (we didn’t have any doctors and I have everything “pretty” much caught up) and OMG … it feels so good to take an afternoon off!

This does not happen very often, but I’m going to try and make it happen at least once a month, if possible, because it does wonders for the morale!!

I came home to find both boys looking rough and beds unmade. I hate that I’m not around to whip their butts into gear, but oh well, they’ll have to learn they can’t sit around and be lazy all day soon enough. I’m taking Jazz out to buy some clothes. I haven’t bought the boys clothes in, oh gosh, over two years? And I know Jazz is only down to one pair of jeans that fit him now and I think he rotates about three t-shirts now – everything else is too small.

I told Dude a long time ago if he needed new clothes, he would have to get a job and pay for them himself. Of course, knowing Dude, he couldn’t care less and will likely wear his clothes until they literally disintegrate on his body.

I need to buy more body lotion (I LOVE shopping for body lotion) and pick up my 5K packet today, too – the Girls Just Wanna Run 5K is tomorrow morning, so I GUESS it’s not “technically” a day off since I’m running errands, but STILL ….

I’M SO HAPPY TO BE OFF WORK!! I know that sounds so silly, and taking off four hours early is not that big of a deal, and yet, it FEELS like a big deal and … FREEDOM!!

I have a lot of website work ahead of me this weekend so I feel like I’m playing hooky by taking off early.

Yep. I’m going to have to do this more often.
