For those of you following the journey....
Some rays of sunshine.
1. Richard cleaned off the battery terminals and the truck is all good. I don't understand what the rough sounding gear change might have been or why it's gone away since he cleaned the terminals, but I won't question it. Anyhow, I have a working vehicle. YAY.
2. I'm hopefully going to look at a van today or tomorrow. It's in Mission. We'll see how that pans out.
3. Had a great morning with the boys at Walmart (to buy a curtain rod for Dexy's room, as he busted his blinds and we ate blackberries from bushes in the parking lot), Starbucks (story on that momentarily), and then a playground at Mill Lake (complete with fallen apple-kicking and duck watching and the surprise of a shopping cart in the lake that quite amused Alton).
-Today, I didn't get my 'usual' cheap drink. I splurged on a Mint Mocha Java Chip Frappe. At the playground, AJ asked if he could try my....
"Crap crappa crappa chip crap"
I wonder if Richard's been brain washing him.
Fallen Apple Kicking
-Near the 'boat park' is an apple tree that has lost a whole whack-load of it's apples. I may have to put AJ in soccer. Apple after apple after apple, he was picking them up, dropping, and mid air kicking them. With......... HIS LEFT FOOT!!! I've made a "Little-Debbie". Just like my mom, AJ is right-handed but does everything 'lefty'. He bats left, sticks left, and I realized, kicks left.
-I'll be happy he's leaning toward soccer. It's better than 4am hockey practices, that's for sure. Hmmmm... boring rainy games with scores like 0-1 or 4am practices? It's a hard decision. Maybe he'll just keep up with the gymnastics.
-Dexter - Everything in my power to stop him from eating those apples.
