Plans for the 4th?

So what is everyone doing for the 4th of July? We are trying to come up with some ideas. Something besides just going to Point Mallard to watch the fireworks.

Bad Dream
I had a terrible dream last night. I dreamed Pablo's aquarium was leaking out of one of the bottom corners. I was running late for something and really needed to leave, but the water was draining out fast. He was just like panicking I could tell. I had the little bowl that I bought him in, but for some reason, I didn't want to put him in there. Then I went to the kitchen but all the bowls were colored. I wanted something clear so he could see out. Well, all the water ran out and he ended up on the floor somewhere. I thought he was dead :-( But I picked him up with his little net and put him in some water, and he sprang to life.

When I woke up this morning, the first thing I did was look over at his aquarium. He was swimming around waiting for me to get up :-)

Look Mom, No Spinner!
As we were trying to plan something for the 4th, someone suggested playing Twiste. That brought to mind the lakehouse trip. One night while we were there, we found a Twister box. Well, the mat was in there, but the spinner was missing. So, resourceful as we are, Shane called out random instructions while Kyle, Tammy, Melody, and I played. It was umm... interesting. Especially when Shane called out a color that wasn't on the board.

Four Three Two One day weekend
In other news, I met up with K and J-Mo for dinner last night. I have decided to take off work tomorrow. So you're probably thinking a four-day weekend, right? Well, no. I have to work Saturday. AND Monday. HUSQVARNAAAAAAAHHHH!!!! Anyway, I am pretty well exhausted from all that has been going on lately. I've been working six days ever since the beach trip. *whine whine* Need to get out of this place for awhile. I'm ready for another road trip.

"And you know it might not be that bad. You were the best I ever had. If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago, I might not be alone..."


  1. I missed talking to ya today!

  2. Plans? Well, got lots of 'em. Started Tuesday night...continued last night...and tonight...Friday is 'off', Saturday night is Salsa dancing, Sunday is running, pool party, fireworks, Monday is resting & cleaning. Whew! I'm tired already!

  3. Salsa dancing cool.. I learned some of that stuff back when I took ballroom dancing lessons... samba, marange' (sp)?, and such.. fun.

    There's all kinds of stuff going on in Alabama and Tennessee for the 4th. Just gotta pick an event or two and make an appearance and let the fun begin!

  4. Lindsy: Yes, I missed talking to you, too :-\

    Lass: A pool party sounds fun!

    BooBoo: Please be more specific on the AL/TN stuff.

    Why want anyone with a pool invite me over?!?! Augh!!!! You have one little incident and that's all anyone wants to remember.

  5. Don't worry, some good plans will come together for ya. Sometimes the best fun isn't planned in advance.

    I have two July 4th parties to go to, but can only make one. Dave's friends party has been planned for six months, invitations came out a month ago, so we accepted. Then, two days ago my family (aunt and her family) decided to have a party at their lake. The parties are 2 hours apart and start at the same time. I'm going to the party that we accepted the invitation to first. But I would like to be with my family.

    I hope you get some rest from all your hard work. Take care and have a great 4th! :-)

  6. I have an ocean that I'd more than happy to share! :)

    Just because you have a day off, doesn't mean you should allow your blogging obligations to go by the wayside...

    Have a great fourth, whatever you do.

  7. Cindy: Thanks. Have a good time. I did get some rest today.

    OC Girl: I'll have to check out your ocean sometime. Yes, I did let me blogging obligations slide today. Sorry O:)

    Hope you all have a great 4th, too!

  8. Really good tennis story.
    Hope you had a great 4th

  9. Thanks for stopping by. I come across your blog often :-)
