Safety First

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a safety fanatic, especially when it comes to my kids. MIL took the kids to Wal-Mart the other day in FIL's truck (without consulting me first, mind you). Olivia was all excited because she got to sit in the middle. Upon further questioning, I learned that MIL didn't put her in a carseat. For some reason she thought Olivia was now old enough that she didn't need one. *Banging my head against the wall* Where on earth does MIL get these ideas?! I told her that by law Olivia still needs to be in a carseat. Here I am all sad about giving up the 5 point harness for a booster seat because it just doesn't seem safe enough, and MIL is driving Olivia around without a safety seat at all! So yesterday she talks about taking the kids to town again in FIL's truck. I had to explain to her - again- that Olivia has to be in a carseat. Arg! Sometimes I just don't have the patience to deal with people.

Fake Bake

I had this brilliant idea to try Jergen’s Natural Glow body lotion. I have really white legs- as in they are so white, when I go swimming people are actually blinded by the glare. Usually I could care less about what other people think about my white legs. But since the lotion had been given such good reviews by friends, I decided to try it so my legs wouldn’t be such an embarrassment to family and friends. And I figured, since the tan develops slowly by applying the lotion over the course of a week, it would be safe to use. Boy was I mistaken. I used it twice- that’s right twice- and I ended up looking like someone waiting for a liver transplant. My legs turned yellow! I can’t believe the drastic results I got from only two applications. Thank goodness I only use it on my legs. I broke down and confessed to Jody what I had done. He got a good laugh out of it. Apparently my legs will be hopelessly white forever. It’ll be okay. Just remember to wear your sunglasses if you ever go swimming with me.

Happy 4th of July

I absolutely love this holiday! There's nothing like family, food, games and blowing things up. Everyone is coming over around 5 to eat. Dad is grilling hot dogs, brahts, hamburgers and New York strip steaks. I have been so spoiled with food since I've been here. I'm making fruit salad. I've been craving it for a few weeks. The side dishes are potluck so it'll be fun to see what everyone else brings. For games we have pool, washers and wiffle ball. And you can't forget the family favorite Catch Phrase. You should see the pile of fireworks we have to shoot off. The stash gets grander every year. It's going to be so fun having the family together. I usually miss out on it since we live so far away so it's great to actually be here.

Look what I saw!

We found out that the Space Shuttle was making a stop at Offutt AFB for refueling. We stopped by to have a look. I can't believe I got to see a space shuttle!
