I DID NOT WATCH ANY OF THE OLYMPICS ON TELEVISION OR INTERNET. I DID NOT GET EXCITED ABOUT THEM. Maybe that makes me an un-earthling. I think it was the whole China thing. I have nothing against Chinese people. I am against their government. I am also against Bush and Cheney. Does that make me un-american. I wonder who will win this next election and how things in America will change. Okay, so the thought running through my head after I typed that last sentence was in a stoopid Chinese accent and in my brain sounded like, "I wonder who will win this next erection..."
We spent over $200.00 getting the kids their school supplies. They are not supplied by the schools. It could be worse. I heard about someone in Chicago who had to buy school supplies AND books and spent over $800.00. School for my kids starts on September 2 and it will be very strange to have a quiet house for more than a couple of hours.
There was a storm this morning about 5:00 a.m. that was a lot of lightning and thunder. It woke all of us up. The lightning was beautiful, the thunder was loud and scary. We have needed the rain, though. It is nice, though, to not be in a constant emergency drought situation - like Utah. It is about 70 + degrees here today. Slight breeze.
