This morning I went for a nice jog in my best sports bra and exercise gear and I just happened to end up in front of the children’s school. I had a charley horse or something, hopefully not shin splints, but something, so I stopped to stretch.
I just love my photo editing software!
I stretched for about 45 minutes and you will never guess who I happened to see arriving at school! Mr. Williams! LOL. I told him that people would start talking if we kept running into each other like this! He asked me who was at home getting the children ready for school. That reminded me that I had probably better get home to get them ready for school. LOL!
He looks like he might climb mountains too!
After school I asked our new neighbor, Mrs. Wozinski, to watch the kids for an hour or so, while i went to a business meeting. I didn’t really have a business meeting, but I wanted to try the new tea shop downtown that Mr. Williams mentioned to me last week. Starling was so upset and started crying and actually spat at Stella Wozinski. Oh well, mommy is a busy bee! Unfortunately the tea shop closes at 6 PM so after I got dressed nicely and found a parking space etc, it was almost time for it to close.
I had to run to get there before it closed.
I arrived at 5:59 and sat down. The employees were so rude though! I sat there for an hour and they were actually cleaning up around me. It was as if I was an imposition to them. I did not leave a tip. I didn’t see anyone I knew there.
When I got home I did the most embarrassing thing, though. I had bought a cute nightie to replace the pajamas that disappeared and I decided to send a photo to Robert but I sent it to Mr. Williams by mistake instead! I hope he wasn’t too shocked!
This is cute, right?
We were all very excited to meet our new next door neighbors because Mrs. Culligan, the realtor who sold it for our old neighbor (who was so old that we never really bothered to speak to her), told us the family had children! How lovely for my three lil’ angles to have playmates right next door, and for me to have someone I can drop them off with from time to time! They have spent months gutting and getting the house ready to move into. Then on Saturday a moving van pulled up and right behind it a mini van. We were all peeking out the window, when Starling burst into tears. It was the Wozinski family from Starling and Merlin’s school, and poor Starling doesn’t like Stella Wozinski at all. Merlin seemed fine playing with Stella and her little sister Izzy, but I called him right in. It was too upsetting for Starling and he shouldn’t be playing with girls anyway.
Later that day, Starling set up a spot near the woodpile to sit with her telescope and play spy on the Wozinskis! What fun! She borrowed my cell phone so she could call all of her little friends and let them know about all of the stupid things Stella does! She is so creative.
My lil’ private eye.
Last time Röbert came home from the mountains he had bought me the coziest pajamas. He is so thoughtful, he had even removed all the tags and washed them for me. I think he meant to surprise me, but I found them in his suitcase when I was looking for his cell phone. I told him he was a silly man because they had the wrong letter monogrammed on them and I can’t return them if they have no tags (I know this for a fact, I tried it once). He is just so sweet and thoughtful!
Ha ha! They have a K on them instead of an L. Röbert is so distracted sometimes.
