Blogging from my iPod touch....thank you Todd!

First of all, at about 4:30 Friday morning, I had a terrible nightmare. There was a little girl who kept pointing at my wedding ring, shaking her head. Because of this, I leaned over to the nun and whispered, "Sister, this child is of the devil." The nun freaked out. Then, I started talking in a really deep, scary, and comical voice (think "redrum"). Then I woke up, but had a really hard time going back to sleep.

I woke up for real at 7:45. We all started getting ready, because Todd had to work ON HIS DAY OFF. Todd's dad called and asked if we had been to the "donut parlor" and since we hadn't, he offered to bring the kids some donuts.
Once the kids had finished the donuts, we got our shoes on to leave. I spent a good 15 minutes looking for my keys, only to finally find them in my purse.
We headed out to see my mom and dad. My mom had made sausage jambalaya and it was GOOD. I mean, IT WAS GOOD, y'all.

My parents watched Finley while I took Jonah to get his hair cut. The lady who cut it kept calling him Joshua. That's a new one. People usually call him Noah. Actually most people call him Jonah. But if they're going to get it wrong, they say Noah.

We went and picked up Todd and headed up to the mall to play some "Lunar Mini Golf." I have to say, I was astounded by the price. Granted, I haven't played much mini golf (or putt putt, as I like to call it) since they closed down King Putt about 18 years ago. So I was expecting to pay around $2 per person. Nope. It was $8 per person. For an extra dollar, they threw in some glow-in-the-dark necklaces. Todd wore his as a headband.

Turns out, mini golf is a lot sweatier that I remember. It was hot in there, y'all. And another thing...I assumed with a name like Lunar Mini Golf, there would be some space ships and stuff in there. Again, nope. One side of the room had sea creatures, and the other had jungle animal. Go figure.

After golf, we headed home. Finley fell asleep in the car, and I was looking forward to a little nap myself. But when we got home, our power was out. So we laid Finley down, called in the power outage, and tried to decide if it was too hot to stay home. I suggested Todd go get us some ice cream, to help "beat the heat." Finley then revealed to us that she wasn't really sleeping, just cat napping. So she went with Todd to get ice cream, even though by then, the power was back on.

I ate my ice cream, then I ate my dinner. We fed the kids, then Jonah enjoyed a root beer float while he watched Garfield. I personally can't believe they even still make Garfield movies. In my mind, it's along the same lines as Alf. That boat has sailed, y'all.

Todd bathed the kids (thank you dear) and then we put them to bed. I was going to read but I couldn't find my book. So I went to bed.
