...Yes, we killed some zombies

I am in a good mood today. I don’t know if that’s really noteworthy, but I wrote it down, so there you go. I am even enjoying the heat and the sun.

Incongruously, I want to sit in a dark room and listen to very moody music.

I had a great long weekend. I took off Friday afternoon, and I packed up Floyd and drove down to hang out with my family (I know, shocker, right?). It was a weekend filled with sun and booze and sleepovers and hot dogs and deviled eggs. So, you know, perfection – well, except for my dumbass brother deciding that it’s TOTALLY COOL to bring loud-ass people back to your mom’s house to party at 3 AM, while everyone else is trying to sleep. Fucktard!


Billy and mom and I did take the kids swimming on Sunday. They have the most awesome pools at the local rec: an adult pool, and a kiddie pool with an umbrella/mushroom that streams water like a shower, and a sort of play-area with jets of water coming up from the ground, and down from a twirly sprinkler thing, and out of a turtle’s mouth, and out of some buckets. It was a lot of fun.

I spent quite a bit of my time floating around with Owen and/or Kailyne in my arms. They clung to my neck and torso like little monkeys. I got Owen to go under once. When I wasn’t playing Mama Monkey, I swam with Malachai. It wasn’t too long ago that HE was clinging to my neck, but now he’s beating me in swimming races! (OK, I let him win, but it would have been close a few times anyway, I think).

I miss swimming. I was a little mermaid when I was a kid, and I don’t go swimming enough now. It’s really good exercise… I wish there was a pool around that wasn’t constantly filled with little kids (sorry, little kids, but you bug me).

I also miss the Sahlen’s Hot Dogs I ate all Sunday and Monday. I should buy some for myself at home, have myself a little pic-a-nic.

By the way, I found out Floyd likes donuts.

I knew there was a reason I liked Floyd.

Ditto on little kids in pools. Except for the ones you name-check in your blog post (they're awesome).

Also, I wish I could swim.

Thanks, foggy!

Yeah, Floyd likes sesame seed crackers, and anything sweet. Oh, and ham, of course.
