Happy 4th of July

My little fire cracker is crashed in the stroller. She's suffering from a multitude of ailiments including new heart meds (a beta blocker) that makes her feel funky, new teeth coming in, and not being at her home (we're staying at Grammy & Pa's at least this weekend). Before I got "the pox", I had grand ideas of celebrating the 4th of July with my usual grilling of burgers, dogs and my homemade ice cream. Even though I am feeling better and starting to scab, I have been banned from the grill...not that I would be able to eat a whole heck of a lot. I have lost over 20 lbs since I left China. I think I lost 5 lbs on the chicken pox diet! Oh well, my dad will get us some BBQ from Bill Miller and I'll just hang out in my biter biscuit stained lounge pants and t-shirt and celebrate our country's independence!

It still hasn't rained here and the temperature is in the triple digits! I REALLY hope that nobody pops fireworks on my street or the street behind me. It not only freaks out my dog but it also is dry as a bone and my grass would easily catch fire.

I will be hand watering my grass a little before dark, JUST IN CASE! I dont trust the geniuses on my street either! lol
Glad you're gonna relax today. You guys should go out in the backyard later and watch the fireworks from Schertz!

mmmm....homemade icecream sounds really good? After your pox heal up and Grace is recuperated from her surgeries, maybe we can have some to celebrate!

Have a great weekend!
