Oh yea, by the way, I went to the beach yesterday. (heehee) It was so hot at my house that the Kid and I put on some shorts and traveled the long mile down to the ocean and we froze our asses off! The wind coming off the water was SO cold. Of course, my kid and the 20 other kids that were playing in the sand could have cared less. There was even one little girl with a tiny little spaghetti strap sundress on. I was really wishing I had a sweatshirt and jeans on.
My dad and step-mom came and stopped by yesterday afternoon after they got off work and we had some dinner with them. After we had some ice cream, the Kid was sitting on our tall stools that we have at the counter with his 'play' goggles on he leaned to one side and the whole thing fell over and hit him in the face. The goggles cut his face a little. I thought it would be so much worse. I tried to get a picture of it, but it just didn't come out that well. It really is just a little red scrape under his left eye that we totally thought was going to be a huge shiner today.
But I do have good pictures of his new toy. I went back to the consignment shop and bought him a Kettler scooter (with the 2 wheels in the back) for only $25. Brand new on Amazon is $119, on sale from $147! Another score! He rode up and down our driveway about 6 times, and we have a loooooong driveway. Hubby was working upstairs and decided to come out onto the roof to see the Kid riding his scooter, and the Kid had a fit that he couldn't go on the roof too. Seriously, a down right fit...like I took his best friend away. So the scooter time was over. And I had just gotten settled in my beach chair on the lawn with my new Parent's magazine and a bottle of water. Damn hubby.
I am seriously looking forward to a new food site a few of my bloggy friends have started. I even sent in a few recipes myself...so be on the lookout for Mozzarella Chicken (a dish with WINE! yum!) and Milano Chicken (a kind of cross between chicken parm with a pink sauce).

And can SOMEONE, please, tell me how I can just put Chop.Stir.Mix (and other sites) and let the words alone be the link without the whole http: // crap.com?? Thanks!!!
