Next week we are planning a trip out to the mine where Justin will be working. It is fun, cheap and educational. What more could you ask for. Plus, you can smash a penny into a suvenior that says, "One Hell of a Hole" which really makes the kids giggle.

My friend Celeste came over today to play. She LOVES appliances. I could really care less. The only requirement I have of a fridge is that it keeps my food cold. Anyway, we have lived in our new house for nearly a year now. So when she comes over it drives her nuts that I still haven't removed the blue tape and styrofoam that the manufacturer puts on the sliding shelves to protect them from breaking during shipping. Oh, my energy tag was still in there too, which I think totally boggled her. I told her I don't really mind, and Justin, being a man of basic needs, must not either. So today, she proceeded to empty my freezer and remove all the tape from it. It only took a few minutes, but honestly, I would probably never have done it or cared that my freezer shelves slide in and out. What would we do without super friends? I repaid her with lunch made out of a myriad of leftovers. We had BBQ chicken pizza, macaroni and cheese, pasta salad, grapes, and veggies. Our kids are also great playmates. They are the right ages and genders so that everyone keeps themselves well occupied while they are there. This is a huge relief, because although I enjoy being off the school schedule, it has been a pain trying to keep the kids entertained, especially Meagan.
