We've had a pretty good weekend so far. Yesterday (Friday), Jim took 1/2 a day of vacation and hung around here. We spent our Friday night eating chicken from Slim's here at home...and watching the first Narnia movie as a family.
We are wild and crazy like that.
This morning, Jim had to get up and do a long run...and then he came home and made breakfast for us all. He made some more of his gluten-free shoe sole pancakes. Surprisingly, Joshua and Clark both ate them. I ate a left-over muffin. Jim also made bacon and eggs. It was yummy.
It was cold and we stayed here all day long. Joshua is feeling MUCH better. Holly and Aaron came over and we all watched the Razorbacks pull out a win against Mississippi State in basketball...but not before having about 3 heart-attacks over how weak our defense was. Good heavens!
And then we all went out for pizza...annnnd now we are back home.
I know. How lame are we?
Oh, yeah. We ran by Kroger on our way home, so I could get a few things for the week. We might get more snow tomorrow night...and maybe even more later on in the week. Jim is concerned that they might cancel the Little Rock Marathon. It's next Sunday. He and Morgan and Faith are all supposed to run the half...weather permitting.
After we unloaded all of the groceries, Joshua reached up to push the buttons that close the garage doors. The big door went down easily, but he couldn't get the other door to work. He would press it...nothing. I said, "Joshua, you have to press it more...intently...and I kind of acted out that he should be firm and hold it a little longer.
He turned around and put his finger on the pad and I KID YOU NOT...started pushing it so fast. The only thing I can compare it to is how fast kids use their fingers when they are playing a video game.
Or the sound of a rapid-fire machine gun.
Not that I've ever heard a rapid-fire machine gun...but I imagine it would sound the same.
