It seems to have rejuvenated each of the kids too, who were already getting into the "I'm bored" of summer before we left. They've been whirlwinds of activity since our return, and I'm not complaining.
And speaking of summer activity, a growing pothole at the end of our driveway is no more! It's been there for as long as we've lived here. I never called the city to patch it since we live on a dead end, and I didn't want to be a driveway diva.
On Friday, I noticed a patch truck slowly moving down the street. It stopped in front of our house, and the driver utilized a manly forearm to point the pothole out to his colleague. The two of them, attractively dressed in matching safety vests, hardhats, tans, and manly forearms, then got out of the truck and proceeded to jackhammer, sweep, and fill. It was beautiful.
In movie news, Magnum and I watched Wilby Wonderful. It looked like just something light and quirky, but turned out to be deeper than expected. Like!
And in car news, the sweet Civic is nearly all TRANSFORMED from her spa day.
|If this is our Civic, then that girl is Megan Fox|
I say "nearly" transformed because we ran into a weird glitch with the shop, but that's too long a story to get into. I am fairly confident that she'll be roaring to go by the end of today, though (please please please...)
