Well much to my surprise, Abby actually enjoyed the fireworks this year! Well the first half anyway, and then she got tired and we had to go home before the finale. No surprise, it was 9:30pm after all. She absolutely adores older boys too. Her current crushes are a 6 year old boy who is the son of DH's best friend, and an 8 year old boy who is the big brother of a kid at daycare. Amazing how young this stuff starts, huh?
Anyway, we had a very small turnout for our cookout on Friday, so I will probably be eating chili for the rest of the week. Saturday we saw Grandma A, who is doing a little worse every time I see her. She fell recently and had to have a couple of stitches on her face, just under her eye. Sad to see her all banged up like that. Sunday we saw the 6 year old again, this time at a local park. I was exhausted by Monday morning, since I'd also taken Thursday off from work to clean house, but it was a good weekend all and all. Yay!
And now of course I've got more Disney ideas. I think I will try to work in the fireworks at Magic Kingdom and Epcot into our plans in September.
Work is busy again too, with the official beginning of Fiscal Year 2009. My "summer season" is over, and fall work has begun!
