We had such a great time at the humane society tonight and Tyler had so much fun playing with dogs and cats! He has a favorite dog named Ernie and favorite cat named Meatball. I was pretty impressed with how clean the place is kept and with the programs available for kids. He's interested in a veterinary program they do where kids can watch surgery and when he gets a little older, can attend a "stitchery" clinic. Very cool stuff going on there! Before we even left, he asked "can we skip scouts and come back tomorrow?" He wants to help make dog treats, an ongoing project.

Will used to go and do that also. They'd let him come and work at the shelter and work with the cats (his favorite). He loved doing it.

Yeah, we can show up any time and just go do whatever we want basically. I just have to stay no further than an arm length away from him until he's 16 (except for summer camps and other times when they don't require parents there).

Mom would already be gone for work. Then we came home in the afternoon and were alone until mom came home from work. In that time we were more responsible than most kids. I remember doing the family laundry at age 7 and cleaning the house with my brother. I had to start dinner every night too. Me and my brother were very independent and we did the right thing coz my mother would kill us with the wooden spoon (she used it as a threat, she never once hit us) if we didn't.

I say GO TYLER. As long as he has emergency numbers and neighbors to go to for help if needed, he will be just fine.

I love the picture in your signature Deb. I don't think you have ever looked happier. It's a great picture. I'm sure you were thrilled.

You could run away to my house after I move. I'll be near the mouse and you and Tyler are always welcome to stay. Of course, I think Heather will have something to say about that.....hahahaha.

I have to relearn to pace myself. I was able to do it when I was alone, but I forgot about it now that John is with me and we have so much to do.

Usually I do well with one day on and one day off. I'll try that again.

We worked on the house Monday and Tuesday. I took off Wednesday and Thursday. I'm hoping to get something done again today. John is packing out all the glassware from the dining room still. Not much got done for the past two days because I was out of it. John spent his time grocery shopping instead.

At least we accomplished getting two rooms done by tomorrow. That will be a Monday thru Friday week.....so two rooms in one week is good.

Where is lunch at Be Our Guest??? I have never heard of that. Is it in the castle?

How cool that you'll be celebrating Will's birthday with him at the Park. That's way better than sleeping in and you can go to the beach on Sunday.

Ernie and Meatball.....how adorable!!!! I love that they have such a great program for kids, but I wouldn't have the stomach to watch everything going on. YUCK! Good for Tyler that he's so interested and loves wanting to help. Maybe he will become a veterinarian. That would be so cool.

OH how nice. Does she rent a place down there or stay with a friend? I bet you wish you could join her, even for a little bit. Miami is hot hot hot!!!

The steak is marinating, the dining room glass is getting bubble wrapped.....all is well with the world today. We are making progress.

The next room is the kitchen. More glass. We're going to take only what we can afford to pack now and do it again at the last minute. Most of the kitchen things will be left behind. John wants all new pots and pans when we move. But we have lots of mom's kitchen things that John took......a meat slicer, a stand mixer, an electric frying pan....etc. Mom liked to buy kitchen things because she cooked all the time. We can pack all of those out now.

Deb - 2 rooms in 1 week is AMAZING!!

1 thing you can always do - with the glassware....is sit at the dining room table & wrap while you sit. John can bring you more glasses when you need them, and he can take them away from you too. That way you can still be helping but resting at the same time.

I LOVE kitchen tools/gadgets! More than 1/2 my kitchen stuff is from Pampered Chef. Sad thing is I don't cook so much anymore. Well, maybe some day I'll get back into it.
