Da Nile

Today was my one day to sleep in before Scott leaves again (he stayed home a couple of days! YAY!) and the kids came in to wake me up every 5 minutes from 7 am until I finally gave up at 9. ARGH!

Last night, I finished the garage painting. The floor looks FAB and cleans up so easily. I'll have to take pictures later, since we can't park cars in it for 7 days.

Since I got such a late start on the second half of the floor, I was still out there working on it a couple of hours after dark.


They were out in force last night, I guess, and my dripping sweat was probably a siren call. I've counted at least 20, and know there are more.

I'm waiting for the West Nile virus *laugh* I checked the CDC web site this morning and they have found it in animals and mosquitos here in Texas. Last night I probably stuck myself out there going 'PLEASE! Please make me the first human victim in Texas!'

(Note - I'm being facetious. I know I probably won't get West Nile. I'm just a big mosquito bump and took some Benadryl a little while ago, so I'm kind of loopy)

On a brighter note - took my mom to IHOP yesterday for lunch. They have the yummiest and most dangerous thing EVER: stuffed french toast. I got the banana caramel, which had a banana cream in the middle, was cooked up, the sliced bananas were put on top and drizzled lightly with caramel. I love IHOP.
