Holiday Mode

I've pushed the button for holiday mode on this blog. That means there'll be more fluff posts than anything else for a bit.

One of my oldest daughter's friends is getting married in a week and a half. That means oldest daughter will be here for a week, and we've been asked to house some other wedding guests as well, so I have to get the guest room ready--the guest room we've been using as a storage room to hold all the extra stuff the returning kids brought home with them and the Christmas decorations, too.

Yes, you read that right. I am embarrassed to admit that I have not yet boxed up and put away my Christmas decorations. There's a good explanation for this, but I forget what it is.

What I really should do is write a list of the top 100 things that have broken around here in the past couple of weeks: keyboard, lawnmower, rotor tiller, weed wacker, the backyard spigot, the hot water pipe to the downstairs bathroom, one headlight on my car, one blinker on another vehicle. That'd be a start, anyway. Oh yes, there's my youngest son's balance center, also. That's been acting up, so I have to drive him to and from his school finals. The bus is no place for someone with vertigo problems.

And I was wrong, there is a picture of me getting my citizenship certificate. Here it is, from way back in the audience, with the back of an unknown man's head front and center.

We had a regular old midwest thunderstorm yesterday afternoon. Hail--lots of it, and big--and so much water that the street by my house was a river for a while. And it went on and on and on. Very, very strange occurrence for this part of the country. It's hard to tell how much damage there is to my plants yet, but it looks like most of them will be okay.

These pets found the storm a bit worrisome, so they hung out together on the bed.

This guy, however, found all those little white balls falling from the sky fascinating.
