Where to Start?

I was offline last week and it just about killed me. We emptied the family room in preparation for our new floor installation, and the poor little computer sat lonely and unplugged in the hallway for days on end. So much has been going on and I couldn't even post one thrilling sentence about it! You missed out on the new maple hardwood, our good weather, a soccer tournament, oh, and the twins CUTTING THEIR HAIR. Well, the modem is back in the wall now, so watch out . . . daily posts this week, starting with:

Why am I using an exclamation mark? "Soccer!" sounds like fun, which it might be for the players, but not necessarily for the moms who have to drive their 13-year-old daughters to game after game after flip-floppin' game for the first big tournament of the summer. Someone needs to invent a new form of punctuation that will express my combined feelings of exhaustion, slight headache, and pride in my kid's ability to pass a ball across a field using only her feet. "Soccer : P" doesn't quite work.

Dinner last night: barbecue chicken, hot dogs, watermelon, cherries

Wow, you have been busy. I can't wait to hear all the stories.

I watched my mother-in-law spend all summer just driving her two youngest to soccer match after soccer match. It's actually part of the reason I haven't enrolled my boys in sports.

I am impressed at your girls playing soccer (football to us) they look like they really enjoy it.
Glad you are back online.
