Lazy days of Summer...

I've been so unmotivated lately. Vacation will do that to you, I suppose. Of course, now I'm back at work, and still trying to get back into the swing of things. I've switched to a 4-10 schedule. Four 10-hour days and one off. Unfortunately, we can't always have off a Friday or Monday, so no consistency. And, the possibility of overtime goes right out the window... Ah well, at least I will be able to use the extra day each week to work on schoolwork (or whatever).

We ended up going to see Get Smart (Thank you all for your suggestions) at the movie theater Saturday. As for dinner, I couldn't decide where to go eat, so I picked a theater that served dinner. I've been there before, and it was pretty good, but this time the service was AWFUL, and the food was so-so. We stopped off for drinks before, which was nice, and the movie was very funny. I think that Steve Carrell may be the only person on earth that could have done Maxwell Smart that well. I've tried to think of someone else who could have pulled off that role, but I can't.

I've been taking lots of pictures with my new camera (and I even uploaded them to my computer finally!) My kids are cheesy posers (I mean that they have to give me a cheesy pose anytime I take a picture), so I've been sneaking around taking pictures of plants and cats and squirrels and things (Squirrels NEVER pose...)

Here are a few samples.


Boys being silly (Please ignore our phallic swimming pool.)




More silliness...




The weed I replanted turned out to be a Sunflower. Now I don't feel quite so stupid...




Sunbathing...




Whoo Hoo! My camera kicks @ss.


This was done at the end of our driveway...




Remind me later to tell the story of how Budman darn near lost a finger while we were having our fireworks show.



Have a great week!

Love the shots of the boys! My boys are of the age now that every photo I attempt to take of them looks like a mug shot. They refusal to smile makes me insane! I've also tried the sneaking up on them thing, but I swear, they are a quarter Ninja, for they hear me and freeze!

Get Smart looks okay overall, though Steve Carell seems to be veering more and more toward slapstick-style humor
