What long weekend?

We work four 9.5 hours days during the summer, so we 'get' Friday, Saturday and Sunday off each week. You'd think that a 3-day weekend would last forever. Nope, it flies by almost faster than a traditional weekend. I cannot believe it is after midnight already.... Time flies when you have a birthday to help plan and hold, help with yard work, move vehicles around, enter baseball cards into the database, play games with the kids, program new phrases into the LCD license plate frame, hang out, check email, check ebay, eat, sleep, clean out my truck and play with the kids some more. :-)

Em got a whistling Frisbee for her b-day. It's made of foam with little whistle-like things in it. If you throw it hard enough (say, 60+ miles an hour, evidently), it whistles. Now, the catch is that when you throw it hard enough to hear the whistles, you are throwing it too hard for it to maintain any kind of stability. We burned a lot of calories chasing that puppy around!


The kids and I have been playing more Oblivion. This time around, we are mainly hunting... Seriously. You can pull out the old bow and arrows and hunt bear, deer, crab, or whatever else happens along. I do not hunt in real life. Nothing against it other than getting up at 4am to sit in a tree all day just doesn't appeal to me... On the game, you have shoot most animals at least 3 times before they start rolling down the hill. Great entertainment, and you get the meat afterward as food!


Oh, my LCD now reads: "ITS HOT IN TOPEKA! IM A HOT TOE PICKER! I PUT ZE DUCKS IN CRYSTAL POND!" :-)


Say goodnight, Gracie.....
