Having Visitors

Every once in a while you get a wonderful reminder why you have the kids you have, lol. The boys had friends over today and it made me so thankful that I have been blessed with the kids I have. Even though I think they can be rotten and terrible, at least they aren't like the ones over today! I don't know but I just don't think it is right for a 10 yr old to still be in third grade, and then while swimming in the pool take a birthday gift away from a 7 yr old and say "I am the guest so you have it give it to me if I want it." But I maybe that is just me.... I don't know. And you can bet when I tell another parent that I will be picking my kids up at 2pm, I won't show up at five to 4pm with out calling. How can people do that, really? First it is just rude to show up two hours late... to anything, let alone your kids at someone else's home. Second, they don't know me from a hole in the wall. I certainly wouldn't leave my children in the care of a stranger for 5 and a half hours.

Anyway, I got in some beading time yesterday before a huge light show! We had some really wild lightening go through about 11pm last night. It was light up a dark room so bright you could read a book kind of lightening. I was able to get an order finished up and 25 more of the discs for my necklace. So now I have 60 of them just 50 or so more to go, lol. But I thought I would show you a pic of the order. Catherine loved the color combo and wanted some similar to the "All In A Row" set. I was happy to make them. I am LOVIN' making plaids! Check them out.

Unfortunately, it was so hot and I was sweating so bad that I couldn't keep my safety glasses on my eyes, lol. so I didn't get to work on the new beads. But hopefully tonight. It is still muggy but loads better then it was yesterday. And Ron took tomorrow off work so I should get loads of bead time in then too :)

Oh... I got my full refund today from that who big tado the other day, thank heavens! It was such a relief to see it post in our account. And we changed the credit card numbers too so we should be in the clear. *sigh*

I will check in with new beads, hopefully, tomorrow.

So why didn't you call the mother when she was an hour late? I would have been right on that phone! So did the boys have fun?

Thanks Chrissie... someone sent my an email that said they look very "Mondrain". The artist Pret Mondrain... I think they may be right!

Hi Mom... I know you would have called but I didn't have the number where the parents were. Yes the boys had fun. Jacob & Dylan are now writting a script for a movie the two will be shooting. And Andrew & Eli played Bionicles the whole time.
