There's a new princess in the family

Look at how pleased Uncle Matt is with little Tenley. She's quietly scheming.

This was taken at Campbell's class picnic on the last day of school. Kira ruled the playground that day.

If I'm a little bit cranky

this should explain a bit. This is INSIDE my house at night, with fans and windows open.

Oh and did I mention that Matt is sleeping in an air-conditioned hotel room and I've been taking care of sick feverish kids in this?

My mother and my sister let me know that I can come over to enjoy their air-conditioned comfort. What they forget is that my a/c in my van is broken and that would mean an awfully uncomfortable 1/2 drive there and back. Once Matt gets back, he is going to take the van in to be fixed, but I'm not going to drop it off, because that would mean trying to make my way home across the city with 4 busy, hot, whiney kids.

So I sit here and sweat. Okay, I'm done now.

Spicy dog

Can you imagine? I was trying to cook a meal. SO of course, Kira took over my spice drawer. First she took out the ground oregano and spilled a little on the floor. I was surprised to see Puck lick it up and then ROLL in it. Kira thought this was great so she sprinkled it on his back. I took away the oregano and she threw a mini-tantrum, stopped midway and got out the onion salt and sprinkled that on him.

He does look happy about being well-seasoned though. And I must say that oregano and onion salt smelled much better than that usual stinky pointer smell.
