Tuesday Tidbits... what a crazy, lame title for a blog post. Ok, I guess it is, Random Thought Tuesday.
Yesterday my husband got his Oregon Driver's license. He also picked up my temporary Oregon tag (a real one will show up soon). Thank goodness, I can finally drive around town without praying that I don't get a ticket. I mean, I might still need to pray that...nah, I'm not talking on my phone while driving, anymore, and I am not a fast driver. I'm the lazy mom-in-the-mini-van driver. Or, sometimes, I am the crazy-screaming-at-her-kids-mom-in-the-mini-van driver. Either way, I am not a fast driver.
Back to Oregon... we're official. We both have Oregon driver's licenses and I have tags. Also, we finally switched from Merlot (great WA wine) to Pinot Noir (wonderful in Oregon). I guess we are Oregonians.
My husband is totally, 100%, addicted to his Ipad. He watches cartoons on it when he does dishes. Last night he was adjusting webcams (yes, there is an app for that!). With great excitement he showed me how he could adjust the webcam at Seaside. I haven't spent much time with the Ipad yet. Everytime I sit down to do it (on the rare occasion he leaves it at home), all of the kids come running over to me. I put it down and walk away. I don't need a kid magnet. Really.
I am working on a house purge. I hate all of my stuff. It's all too much. That's one of my favorite books: It's All Too Much. This summer, I am going to put the premise of that book into practice. Now, I am just trying to figure out how to get the rest of the family on board. Local peeps (as if I am cool enough to have "peeps"), get ready, sometime in August I am going to have a big garage sale. My husband is hoping for the end of July but I figure it will be August. (And, friends, if you are interested in my stuff, just call me and come get it. I'll give it to you for free.)
I have a new pet peeve. It's Facebook. It's a love hate thing. I find out things I don't want to know. I get information that I do need to know. I find people that I don't need to know. I reconnect with people that I missed. I... maybe I will just stop there.
I love summer. I love every minute of the lack of activities. This is making it hard to meet my goal of inviting people over and planning activities with friends. So far, I am hunkered down in my home, quietly making piles of things I don't want to keep. When the kids get restless, I give them an otter pop or two... or three. I love summer.
Back on being an Oregonian...My husband's truck still has WA tags. They aren't expired yet.
