'Mom' had borrowed the car a few days ago and on Thursday she brought it back. She finally got the inside cleaned out.... from 2+ years ago. Actually, from 2 yrs up until now cleaned-out. She use to use the car a lot when we all lived together and the interior got really dirty. You know, goldfish (the crackers), potato chips and cookies, one lone slipper, one sandal, lots of bagging materials, and lots of old mail. All over the inside of the car. And now its gone. The only thing left to do is Armour-All the inside.... if I had some Armour All.
The boys were very energic. Maybe a sugar high... I'm not sure, but they were running around A LOT. They grow so fast!! Darius will be five years old in a few months. He's not a little boy any more. Sniffle. He's turning into a boy. A 'regular boy'.
I tried to get a good head shot of both of them, but they wouldn't cooperate. Darius looks scared, doesn't he. It wasn't me. All I did was call to him so I could get a photograph. Maybe he was scared that I was going to take the flashlight away from him, but everybody knows you HAVE TO HAVE a flashlight in the daytime!
Mom had trimmed up the boys hair using just scissors and she did a really good job. I especially like how Darius' turned out.... but he doesn't like it. I guess he put up a big stink about it, too. That's mom's attitude coming back to kick her in the butt. She use to stand firm about wanting the boys' hair to be long while everyone around her tried to talk her into getting it cut very short. (insert mother's snicker here. make it two snickers.)
I'm trying to get my butt in gear this morning. I'm going to go get a couple more pieces of clothing. That's a rare occurance for me, but I'm doing it. Plus, the store I go to is having a big 40% off most things, even clearance items. So... I gotta go jump in the shower now.
Update: It was a successful run. I got a 'work shirt' and a three piece outift in black. (I'll look like the grim reaper.) All for under $40. My kinda good.
