Busy Saturday! Mosey went on a scout field trip in the morning to the Vireo Preserve where they helped plant some seeds, clear trails, and do some conservation work. Mosey did NOT want to go as of yesterday afternoon, but I put my foot down and told him he had to go. He went, albeit reluctantly, and ended up having a fabulous time. "It was AWESOME!" was his report when I asked him how it went. See? Sometimes moms do know what they are talking about.
I did yardwork in the morning and then did errands for most of the rest of the day. Ugh. Took Joseph to Target with me to get groceries and prescriptions. I am so glad Joseph still likes to go to Target with me. He doesn't talk a whole lot, but we are together. Later after putting groceries away, I took Mosey down to Austin Pets Alive for their kitten nursery "baby shower." We brought a donation and got to tour the kitten nursery. Just before we left, Ben said, "Whatever you do, do NOT bring home any more kittens!" And it's a good thing he did because there were 3 roly poly little solid grey kittens that were like miniature teddy bears. They were SO CUTE. But 6 kittens is more, much more, than enough.
After dropping Mosey off at home I went to Jiffy Lube to get an oil change and my car inspected. It failed inspection because I'm missing a clip on one of my windshield washer blades. Really?! Even though the wipers are 100% functional, I fail inspection because one of them is missing a clip. So now i have to go to an auto supply store, track down this missing clip, install it, and then go BACK for a re-inspection. I was peeved. At least I sat by an interesting fellow while I was waiting. Turns out he is the father of the guy who plays Simba in "The Lion King" on broadway (Andre Jackson). No kidding! He showed me pictures and talked for an hour (really) about his kids and the best way to raise kids. He was a cool guy.
Meanwhile Ben and Brigham drove up to the cabin to go kayaking. Joseph and Mosey stayed home. I made banana break with a whole bunch of really black bananas and then pretended to try to clean the house for a while before deciding to do the infinitely more productive task of updating my blog. :-)
