Bird Poo Facials????

Um, yuck. No, I'm not getting one, I was just scanning MSN headlines today and saw an article on the crazy things people do to help their skin. I'm sorry, having someone (or someTHING) else's FECES on my face isn't going to happen.

Well, we were under Severe Thunderstorm, Flash Flood, and Tornado warnings and watches untill the wee hours in the morning--we just let the kids sleep in the basement. Even the baby. They thought it was fun, we were nervous wrecks. The huge cracks of thunder kept waking us up, but what can you do?

I had to go to court over my speeding ticket this morning, luckily they were nice to me, and I don't get points deducted. The judge thought it was quite amusing that I got pulled over in front of a police station. It wasn't funny at the time, but now, yeah, I guess it could be.

So I'm a little lighter on the wallet, unfortunately, but my insurance won't go up. Thank HEAVEN. Friday the 13th has always been a lucky day for me!

I stopped by the store on my way home to buy about five cans of mosquito repellent (ranging from the "baby" stuff to the hardcore DEEP WOODS-MELT-YOUR-SUNGLASSES Deet-filled stuff.) We are going to have a mosquito epidemic this summer because of all the standing water and flooding, mark my words.

YUCK. I bought a net you can put over a baby stroller, too. They're about $2.50, and I have a feeling it will be worth it.

So now the baby is down, and I am going to get some cleaning done. It's friday! Last day of school (I was at the store at 7am buying "teacher presents" because I forgot) and the kids only have a half day. It's still gloomy and rainy outside so we're going to stay home today. I wasn't able to see Kung Fu Panda last weekend because of the storms, but this weekend, we'll make it!

Be safe, everyone!

Enjoy Kung Fu Panda!

And, when you've seen INDY, go back and read my comments -- I'm interested in your opinions!

Glad you're all okay.

Let me know what you think of Kung Fu Panda! I can't wait to see it! :)

Hope you have a great weekend! (and it's somewhat dry for you...)

I loved INDY, though I didn't go into the whys as much as Devon did.

Kung Fu Panda was a hoot. You'll all like it, I think.

So sorry about the storm watch. At least the kids thought it was fun (never mind that mom and dad were on edge the whole night). I hope you all stay safe.

Good for you on the skeeter repellent. I think you're right about the mosquitos this summer. Bleah.
