Australopithecus would really have been sick of us debating out while here they’re catching deer. (We’re catching viruses.) Religion or astronomy, Encarta, Deuteronomy: it all started with the big bang.

I know you’re all waiting to hear the fascinating things I’m doing.  /rolleyes  I’m updating less frequently…sorry about that.  😛

Em didn’t end up going to the library with her friend last Monday.  They never called and weren’t home most of the day, so not sure what’s up with that.  Oh well.  Let’s see, we went to the pool a gazillion times.  Wednesday we went out to lunch at Chilis and saw Judy Moody.  Thursday we went to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid at the $1 movie.  Friday we drove down to Barnes & Noble and Waldenbooks to get Em’s free books.  Then we went to the used book store to use my Groupon and take in a bunch of books for credit.  We ate lunch at Canyon’s and then stopped by the library.  Then it was on to the pool!

This weekend we went to see Cars 2 on Saturday and to the pool on Sunday.  It was a mostly uneventful weekend.  Cars 2 was alright, but it really didn’t blow me away.  Might be my least favorite Pixar to date.

Em’s got her best friend coming for a sleepover tonight.  The pizzas are ordered, the trundle bed is pulled out, and the house is semi clean.  That’s about as good as it’s going to get.

Our mostly house-trained dog turned out to be mostly NOT house-trained.  He’s been getting worse and worse peeing and pooping EVERYwhere.  It’s fucking annoying.  So, we’re doing some annoying house training.  He goes out every hour.  If he does anything, he gets 15 minutes of play time off the leash.  Then he’s back on the leash or in the kennel until the hour is up.  If he doesn’t do anything, it’s back on the leash or in the kennel until the hour is up.  So far there have been less accidents, but having him on a leash the whole day is hella annoying.  In the kennel he whines and barks and it annoys the hell out of everyone.  So, yeah.  Today’s day 3.  Tomorrow we’ll go to 30 minutes off the leash.  I think.  He’s had 1 accident each of the last 2 days.  I dunno.

We got the info for Fall soccer.  They’re changing uniforms.  So, we have to spend $75 on new uniforms that we don’t actually need.  (But they’re Addidas!  Who cares?!)  They also created a new soccer complex for all the games to be at.  If I had multiple kids, this would be awesome, but I don’t so I could care less.  So they’re tacking on a $25 fee for the new complex.  So instead of the $125 that we SHOULD be paying, we’re paying $225.  /sigh  We’re probably still going to do it.  The only team sports I could find for Em is Basketball, Softball, and Soccer.  Em’s not interested in the other 2 at all.  Basketball’s pretty cheap.  Softball’s pretty cheap except you also need a batting helmet, glove, bat, and something else…can’t remember.  So, we’re sticking with soccer.  The only other viable option in the area is the YMCA, but it’s a lot to get a membership with them and then you have to pay more for soccer.  Plus, I haven’t heard great things from them.  One of Em’s friends does Upwards, but I’m leery of putting my kid in anything sponsored by church stuff.  So, yeah.  On the plus side, it looks like Em’s best friend’s going to do the same league in the fall and we can request that they be on the same team.  Yay!

We had Em’s 7 year checkup today.  Shut up, I know it’s late.  I keep getting farther and farther behind, but you can’t have appointments less than a year apart so it sucks.  Anyway, she’s 48.8lbs (25-50 percentile) and 46.25″ (10-25 percentile).  She’s a shorty.  She’s been in those same percentiles since she was born.  She grows right in line with the standard growth trends every year, so I’m happy.  She’s not having any kind of issues other than getting her to eat vegetables, of course.
