Buddy has 4 more days. Technically, Tuesday, June 3 is the last day - the school picnic. We've been every year since he was in Kindergarten. I think we may skip it this year.
It's always fun, don't get me wrong. It's at a lovely local park, parents' bring pot luck type dishes and the school (PTO) provides hot dogs and fixin's. The kids get to run their hearts out and if the weather cooperates, it's a nice day.
However, they have an outdoor Mass to kick off the day. It's a full communion Mass (as is every Mass in the Catholic Church). It requires reverence and quiet. I can't count on Sissy to not be halfway across the field before the service even starts - much less stand in line with me while I receive communion. Yeah, right!
At any rate, I'm still debating it in my mind. I know Buddy would really enjoy it and Sissy would enjoy it. It would be me getting little to no enjoyment out of it. I guess we sacrifice for our kids, though, huh?
I'm still working on some different blog topics as suggested. I'm waiting on my new scanner/printer thingie to get here because there are old photos I want to scan for one piece. I ordered the same thing as Ron, only without the wireless router (we already have one).
I'm actually looking forward to the summer break. We'll get to sleep in a bit (or as much as Sissy will allow) and have a much more laid back schedule. Although if I get any more laid back, I might be in a coma. LOL.
My friend across the street and I are planning on a surprise for our other neighbors. They are 91 and 92 and will celebrate 70 years of marriage on June 6. They have no children or really much other family around, so I think we're going to do a little fruit and candy basket for them. They are a sweet couple, and great neighbors. The wife, at 91, still gets out and sweeps off their sidewalk every day and she's sharp as a tack, too. It's not unusual to see letters to the editor from her in the newspaper. We should all be so lucky to be that spry at that age!
Not much going on today, and for that, I apologize. I think my day will consist of laundry and a trip to Kroger. And, it's Elderly Hell Day! Oh, Blonde Goddess, what am I thinking??
