How Strange

I had dinner with my ex-mother-in-law and ex-sister-in-law tonight. I just love them. And then they took Jacob with them to their little town about an hour from here for a sleepover.

I'm so proud of Jacob- he read his first chapter book (of any size) and finished it this week!

The parts of it that I read were actually really funny. I think I'll probably end up going back and reading the whole thing.

Right now, I'm reading a series the Girls are loaning to me.

The Girls? Oh- they're just these completely awesome 16 year old twins that happen to be the daughters of my best friend/partner in crime. They're fantastically talented and willing to watch my kids (which makes them even more awesome)! Check my Youtube videos on them by searching for BACP or Broken Arrow Community Playhouse.

I'm going to go see them in The Sound of Music this weekend-if it's not sold out!

Thanks, Thomas!

Okay, so Randy was remarkably sweet and gave up on his plan to buy a new (to him) truck with his tax return in order to spend the money to get me a laptop for my early Valentine's present. Awww, wasn't that sweet??

But, the laptop would have been a high-falutin' solitaire game if it wasn't for our buddy Thomas. He's really Randy's buddy, but I'm claiming him now because not only did he set up the internet on my laptop, a couple of months ago he totally rescued our home pc too. He's handy to have around in a pinch and I hope he knows how much we appreciate him.

Plus Jackson just loves him for some strange reason.
