Mish Mosh Monday ...

... brought to you on Tuesday. Such is the story of our life right now. Just go with it, OK?

Here is the latest that's been happening in our neck of the woods...

* I picked up my new iPhone 4 on Tuesday and I am in love. It is much faster than my iPhone 3, it has a video camera, and it only cost me an elbow and a calf... Of course I had to also purchase the Apple Protection Plan, because it's not just protection in case I drop the phone, it's protection for when I drop it.

* The girls had a birthday party to attend on Thursday and because we arrived late (due to after school activities), I decided against bringing their bathing suits. Of course, they were the ONLY kids without their bathing suits, so they just jumped in the water with their clothes on. No big deal right? Except the ocean is FREEZING, and I didn't bring towels either..

* I got another Brazilian Blowout on Friday. Let's have a big yay for spending a few minutes (or hours) trying to make me look (and feel) pretty.

* Friday continued to have its moments ... like when I had a meltdown in front of my neighbor for no apparent reason, AND when Sheridan fell out of the neighbor's tree. She was nicely scraped up, though the worst thing she hurt was her pride.

* Sheridan continued having a great weekend when she spiked a high fever, thus keeping us inside on what was probably THE nicest weekend all summer. To add insult to injury, we have no air conditioning in our house. Which wouldn't be bad if there was a breeze of any kind. But there isn't. At all. It's 90 degrees IN our house right now. I think we may shed a few pounds sweating to the oldies...

* Grady and I have done a whole lot of schlepping around and running errands. Every ... single ... day. It's to the point where the checkers at Target and Ikea probably know my name. I'm really ready to be done fixing up the house and start living in it...

* We're gearing up for a weekend with my folks when they come down for my cousin's Bat Mitzvah party.

* We're making plans for Matt's first R&R scheduled for mid November.


And one of these days we're hoping to hear about our next posting ...

You're not the only one hoping to hear about your next posting!!!! Some of us are totally waiting impatiently on that score, too! You and Jen, man. Can't get enough of the newz!

Can't imagine what a struggle it is, doing all of this without Matt. You sound awesomely capable, but I know some extra hands would be nice!

Yay! on the phone. Very cool. Smart to buy the protection plan, you know if you don't...

Good for you for the blowout. It's amazing how something like that can pick you right up, isn't it?

Glad Sheridan's feeling better. Sorry about no a/c. Hopefully it will cool off soon. If you're up for another trip to Target, (or some online shopping), we have great fans that fit in our windows and you can direct airflow in or out. They make a big difference, and of course it feels a lot better when air's circulating. We've been known to have those on, plus the ceiling fans, plus, when it's really bad, oscillating fans.

Have fun at the Bat Mitzvah. That's a really big deal.

Countdown's on for Matt. Hope you hear about your new post soon, and that you love it.

yeah that mid november is pretty close! But boo for not having A/C...hope you have lots of fans?! I thought you already had your next post?! Not set in stone yet? UGH! I hope you have a good week and don't go dropping that phone - YET! ;-) Thinking of you all!

When I got my phone, I said, yeah this is my when I drop it plan. The guy was like 18 and looked at me all weird. Whatever dude, you will have kids and understand one day.

In realty though, I'm the clumsy one. I almost threw it across my driveway this morning. Luckily I threw the keys instead, which were in my other hand.

yay for the phone!
and how was the brazilian blowout? worth it?

Emily said...

I am so sorry about the AC. I understand. It has been quite hot the last few days.

I must say, though, I am a little jealous of the 4G iPhone.

Anna See said...

That's a lot going on, dear Jill!

Hope your kiddo is all better!

Kat said...

Egad. You have so much going on. I don't know how you do it. I think you DEFINITELY deserve that blow out. :)
