My life has been a crazy whirlwind of activity. Anna and Scott came in for a visit and stayed over a week. They now live in Denver. Scott has a job at a health club and Anna thinks she has a lead on something. They are trying to find teaching jobs but are taking anything that they can get at this point to have some money coming in. Whatever, the bank of mom is closed, well except for gas money so they can leave.
The boys went prospecting. Let me tell you, if you ever want to start up a business this is the rack to get into. It was $15 a bucket of sand!!! And that was the low end!!! It went up to $135 for a bucket!!!!! Each of the boys ended up with a few little
Of course, the biggest of the bunch decided that he wanted to stick his head in Andrew's lap and try to eat his $4 cup of carrots. We survived after I told the scared kid not to freak out because I'm not sure what the animal was going to do. I threw a few carrots like the ninja Aunt that I am and freed us.
Then my adorable little nephew asked me to "kiss" the giraffe. I mean how do you say no. Thank God there isn't a picture of it but some freaky giraffe pushed the other gentle and polite kisser out of the way and shoved his tongue in my mouth and then up my nose. Yeah, I can now say that I made out with a giraffe. Unfortunately my SIL saw it all and I have been the butt of many jokes. Like, once you go giraffe you never go back. Damn it. But at least I got his name, I made out with Eddie.
On our way back from the Dells, we stopped in Madison WI at the casino. You only have to be 18 to gamble there so I thought that it would be a nice way to end our trip, the boys gambling for the first time. We gave them money and thought this would be awesome for them.
We didn't stay long. DJ lost $25 and Jordan lost $35 and I thought that they were going to have a meltdown. I guess neither will be wanted by the mob for gambling debts anytime soon. DJ especially was not a happy boy. He stood over me glaring at me, telling me how stupid it was to gamble and how he wanted to go. I sent him to his father and then we left. They really kill all the fun. And Den and I were both winning! The boy is not going to do anything to upset his fuddy-duddy ways. The kicker is they lost my money so I don't know why they were so mad!!!!
And that about catches you up on my life.
