New baby pics two posts below this one for anyone who hasn't seen them!!
96° again today and I.m absolutely zapped. So are the girls. Elcie didn't finish up homework and I didn't even care. I'll send a note tomorrow. We were trying to divide decimals into decimals and neither of us could focus. I can do it; just couldn't put together an explanation that made sense. Her book wasn't much help. I will google and we'll work on it tomorrow.
Managed to put together a one dish stir-fry; cheating every step of the way with frozen veggies and rice-a-roni. Only one stove burner working. They ate it with no complaints; even Elcie who doesn't like rice-a-roni (or so she says). It was covered up with broccoli and cauliflower which she loves along with 6 or 7 other veggies.
Mom and Jonathan were doing fine last I heard. I didn't stay long this afternoon. Two of Melissa's daughters were there plus me, Jim, and Tim. Too many for a new mom. I'll see her tomorrow and maybe the next day I'll take the girls or they might even bring the baby over here.
We have several new visitors between yesterday and early today but I'm dripping sweat into the keyboard, even this late at night, so I'll try to get back to them tomorrow.
It's supposed to start cooling down to the high sixties by the weekend. Maybe I can accomplish a little more. Clean laundry piling up but the girls aren't naked so I'm ignoring it. Tomorrow maybe.
Elcie's wheelchair is in for repairs so she was on her crutches today. We're trying to charge her electric enough to make the day tomorrow. Darn thing has never worked. The agency which provides her needs is shopping for a replacement (we finally gave up on sending it back) and she'll be measured next week. We wanted a scooter for her but there is no way to tie them down to a school bus. So the wheelchair it is. She should have the electric by the time school starts back in August. She'll be mainstreamed for the most part which means classroom to classroom and a lot of pushing with the manual chair. She managed on crutches in elementary school but this is a big, crowded campus and I'm worried she'll be pushed around.
Thanks to all for the comments and compliments about our little "monkey feet'. I'm afraid that name may stick. Discovered it's because he had his toes firmly wrapped around something (the cord?) on his way out. Jim says he has a fantastic grip for a newborn. He has Jim's bull neck but at least missed the ears. Adding Dumbo to watermelon head and monkey feet would be too much.
Giants swept Houston, Mollie - now tied for last place. Barry didn't play. He'll be the DH when we play Oakland in Oakland over the weekend. Long road trip - about 10 miles across the bridge and over to the Coliseum.
I'll try for a little more inspiration tomorrow. Just too darn hot tonight.
