I'm sorry, tonight's one of those incoherent nights where I just feel like I can't string two thoughts together that make any sense. I was surfing the Net for a while, but that got boring really fast. We had an early dinner so everything got cleaned up early. The kids are outside. The oldest and the youngest are playing tether-ball with the girl down the street and my middle one is practicing his soccer moves with his dad. I never played tether-ball well when I was a kid. I was afraid of the ball. Tether-ball was huge when I was in 5th grade. I remember standing in line with all the other kids because that's what you did at recess and then my turn came up to play. Rhonda A. was the best tether-ball player in the 5th grade because she'd get that ball going fast and then she'd just keep it going round and round and it would wind up around the pole and you'd be toast. Sometimes a kid would get brave and be able to hit it and then they'd volley for a while, but Rhonda would always win. She was mean. I never even tried. That ball scared me. I just stood there and took my punishment and slunk away when it was over. You know, I was a wimpy kid, now that I think about it. I was shy and very unathletic. Fortunately, I was never picked on. I was pretty smart, so I had that going for me. Anyhow, so, that's tether-ball. And then, there's soccer. Missy Lou's coach called earlier and she's practicing tomorrow at 6:30 at the Sports Park. Bubba is tomorrow at 6:00 at one of the schools. I'm kind of dreading what Duh-duh's coach is going to say when he calls. Tuesday and Thursday nights are very popular practice nights around here. I've been looking in to cloning myself.
And here's my sweet little Sparky. Isn't she cute? There was a cat on the fence Saturday night and Sparky barked all night long. All night long. I squirted her with the squirt bottle dozens of times, but to no avail. I just about opened the gate and gave her the boot. But, look at that face. Could you really give that sweet thing the boot? We took her to the vet today. She's fine and healthy. Looks like a terrier mix. Hmm, ya think? She got two shots. Just about took the vet's arm off. And she cried like Missy Lou when Missy Lou gets shots. I think they're related. So, that's all I got tonight. The munchkins are in and it's getting to be bedtime. I should go and do some parenting. Good night!
