[summer break in 80 days] day 47

072009 clouds

9:46 Now the caffiene is gone and I can't keep my eyes open. And it's raining, double whammy.

1:53 We missed swimming because of the rain. Andy was pretty upset. He was whining about missing his bike ride until it dawned on me that he doesn't usually ride on the days we go swimming. I reminded him but that didn't help much. UPS arrived with our amazon order a day early and Andy got his new recorder. That made him happy.

The 8x10s arrived from Mpix. I love how quick they are and how great they look. Now to trim and mount on cardstock. And mail.

7:22 Distracted earlier. We went to lunch then to Oliver's to see what was on sale. No kids bikes on sale, figures. The salesman suggested an adult size bike but I won't do that. I know our parents bought us bigger bikes that we could grow into but it's not safe. Ryan picked out a white mirraco bike, Icon Intro. White?! So we put a down payment on it as he can wait until his birthday. Andy got a handlebar bag that also was not on sale. Nice sale.

I spent most of the afternoon talking to Bonnie and working on the blog for Baby Thompson. I ended up doing it twice since I wasn't thinking and did not install it in the root folder. The second installation and set up went much quicker.

Andy is still wearing his recorder though he isn't using it.

9:46 We also got a new book today, Taking Care of Myself: A Hygiene, Puberty and Personal Curriculum for Young People with Autism. It's geared towards those with autism and has some great info and ways of explaining growing up and such. Already Andy put on his robe after took off his clothes so he didn't run through the housed nekked. I have been trying to get him to do just that but I guess he needed to see it in print.

Really feeling tired tonight, yawn.
