SLUGS.

Not that I have anything against slugs...I have memories of big yellow banana slugs out by my Aunt's cabin in the woods when I was a child--and my dad gleefully running around with a salt shaker...but I have to say, SLUGS is what we were this weekend.

How's THAT for a run-on sentence? :-)

Well, other than the one soccer game that didn’t get cancelled on Saturday because of rain, we just were…slugs. I got quite a bit of research done, and other than showering, we didn’t go anywhere.

It was kinda…nice.

Sunday was more of the same, and it was very relaxing. Of course, heh heh, now I have to do some serious cleaning because I didn’t clean WHILE we were being slugs…

I am nearly finished with the first chapter of my sequel. I’m testing the waters. I have most of the modern day story plotted out, but the ancient story needs SERIOUS research. I wish my research books would come in the mail faster! But I was cheap and opted for normal delivery. Why pay a low price for a book and pay twice that amount for shipping? Doesn’t make sense to me. But I am a VERY impatient person…

Typical Monday stuff today—I am going to try and squeeze more plotting in with the cleaning and laundry. And I discovered what my sons do when they “clean” their rooms. They put all their CLEAN clothes in with the dirty clothes, and dump them all down the laundry chute. I was going through the pile of dirty laundry from them and I found at least 12 shirts that were clean and UNWORN. I was hopping mad. Lazy butts.

That’s seven and nine-year old boys for you.

Happy Monday!

Several months ago I learned to tell Meg, "and don't just put things in the laundry because you don't want to fold them!"

The cat and I were slugs this weekend. It was wonderful. I think you need that downtime every now and then.

Oh yes...I remember all the times the clean clothes were mixed in with the dirty clothes and thrown down the laundry shoot!

(Sometimes I sort of miss having something to yell about.) 'sigh

Ha ha, Jenni--that's EXACTLY what my boys did! I guess I need to be more vigilant with FOLLOWING UP on whether or not they fold their clothes...

Ha, Ha!! I believe I remember that in California! Sounds like something dad would do! He's such a character sometimes....
