Twilight Envy*

J is on me about ignoring this poor blog. He's kinda right, but really, nothing has been going on. Things have been really busy at work and I'm working late and coming home tired. I almost got hit by a bus today trying to cross the street to catch my parking shuttle.

Father's Day weekend was nice. I was really worried about J's gifts but he appears to like them. While we were shopping, I let BB and Molly each pick out a bottle of nail polish (blue for BB, purple for Mol) and I did their nails on Saturday. They both look so cute

Dad punked me at Mass on Sunday - here's the story:
Every year for Father's Day, Dad wants to see his kids at Mass. This year he was preaching at the St. Louis Cathedral, so we got up early, got dressed and headed out. The Cathedral is packed, of course, and there are no bathrooms, which is no bueno if you have a 3-year-old. So, we went to Mass, didn't see Mom or Dad, halfway through Molly had to go to the bathroom, so then I've got the two older kids in the Cathedral and Molly and I are walking around Jackson Square trying to find a bathroom. Turns out Dad had gotten sick and called in a substitute, but I didn't know it. He was better by mid-afternoon and we all went out for a terrific lunch

No good news on the termite front. We've been going back and forth with our termite company, and although we keep insisting the termites are in our attic (based on the fact that they're coming out of the top of our wall in the bathroom and our bedroom ceiling) the termite company cut a hole in our masonry at ground level. Of course they were surprised there were no active termites there. BECAUSE THEY ARE IN THE ATTIC!!!!! Someone is coming out again Thursday. Of course, we currently get a termite swarm IN THE HOUSE every night between 8:30 - 9:30. It creeps me out and makes BB and Molly cry. Good times.

Dean and Brenda's wedding is getting closer - J and Ian got their tuxes yesterday and the bridesmaid dresses came in today. We made our hotel reservations. I still need shoes for Molly and me, but I think that's it for the big stuff.

*And the reason for the post title:
H1 and SIL(H) went to Forks and LaPush yesterday! Saw a pic of SIL standing next to the "Welcome to Forks" sign. We're going next summer, I don't care what happens between now and then. We're going to visit J's grandmother in Oregon and and we're going to Forks. Make it so.

Just to set the record straight, I was to be the "deacon of the Gospel", that is, the deacon who proclaimed the Gospel reading during Mass. The Archbishop ALWAYS gives the homily.
