Pardon Our To Do List

Yes, I know, I disappeared for a week again, and just when I told you we had some fun stuff lined up to show you.
 We still do. But a few minor things sucked up all my attention.

Two of our graduates had scholarship snafus that needed sorting because advisors always insist on treating your children as adults and you like an amused observer.
I was not amused. I don't think they were either.
 By the end, I think I could have gotten HIM in school.
 We had a lot of family down for a very special occasion: we sprinkled my Father-in-Law's ashes, which had been residing with us for a few years...
 ...with my Mother-in-Law's ashes...
...and we watched them mingle in the ocean sunset.
Between that, my broken rib still wreaking minor havoc, and the bout of stomach flu that sounded like too much fun to pass up, it was Saturday before I knew it, and I had no desire to tell you all I was doing was beaching on the couch to stream Supernatural.
 We will be back though, starting tomorrow. Count on it!

Going Shopping

 We have some Back to School projects to complete today, and that requires a trip to Joanns!
Everyone is depressed about having to drag in there, right?
So let's go get some STUFF!
Headed for Joanns, BRB. 
If not back, avenge death.

Goofing Off

Three little Minions, all starting college simultaneously.
 Double soy vodka fudge Prozac decaf low foam mocha latte, anyone?
After all the last minute running, signing, scanning, emailing, calling, screaming, 
ranting, organizing, printing, faxing, and double checking, we figured a little letting loose couldn't hurt.
Plus we had family down with small children, so it was off to the beach to the water playground!
 How fast can you turn teens to toddlers?
Repeat after me: gravity spinning seat...
 ...and enthusiastic younger brother!
 This knocked the calculus right out of him.
Next up: can centrifugal force remove physics?!? Let's find out!...and perhaps drop physics and replace it with art appreciation on your schedule.
 Maybe we'll let the smaller cousins have the toys. At least until things stop spinning violently out of control in our heads.
We're switching gears from Summer to Fall under the watchful eye of Granny today,
so get ready next week for some simple, subtle transitions you can do with things you 
probably already own.

House Hunting

With so many projects left to do around Chateau Inferno, sometimes I get discouraged and
think of chucking it all.
Wouldn't a new, perfect house be a delight?
What would you do if you woke up each day, and there was nothing on your agenda except sunning by the pool and choosing a new place for dinner?
Pretty flippin' sweet!
So we hopped on a boat Tuesday night and cruised the intercoastal to see what properties were up for grabs.
Wanna join us?
 The right transportation is key to get you in the house hunting mood.
You guys hop on board while I check the lottery tickets.
 Make sure the property is in good repair with water access for those emergency swordfish runs.
 Adequate parking is important, and see if the community limits the 
spaces you can allot if you're throwing a bash.
 Separate guest quarters. Be still my heart.
 I like the His and Hers entry stairs, although I think it's conducive to racing.
If I had 12 million dollars worth of house, you'd be able to SEE it.
 I will bet money this gazebo did not come in a box from Target.
 This yard is just screaming for a couple of gold painted concrete lions, don't you think?
 What do you use turrets for these days anyway? Warding off castle attacks?
 This is a little plain, but I think some nice plastic flamingos would raise the curb appeal. Or wharf appeal.
 On the bright side, mowing the lawn takes 10 minutes.
 I think I could finally get some privacy here.
 "Savannah, you're cleaning bathrooms one through four, Thom, you have five through nine..."
 I'm not walking around naked in this house.
"I'm running to the grocery store, do you need anything?"
Let's turn around and head back in.
 The ultimate corner lot.
Hide and seek would be out of control here.
I wonder how much of this space they actually use?

This is more in my price range.
Trust me to find a trailer anywhere, huh?
