It's Friday and time to fragment. See Mrs. 4444's blog to see who else is participating.
Gosh, it's hot. Did everyone before me mention it's hot? Well it is. Predictions for today are a high of 99 to 101.
Like many people in the Midwest we experienced the terrible winds and storms last Friday. I was coming home with #1 son from the pool and it was so dark - in many years I've not see the sky get so dark so quickly, and the initial winds came down so fast. I was looking at stuff blowing in the street, looking at trees bending over, checking for funnel clouds, and muttering, "I just want to get home... I just want to get home..." We got home safely, and did not lose trees or power, thankfully.
Saturday afternoon followed with another hot day and a line of thunderstorms, with heavy winds also. Was this going to become a daily pattern? Luckily not, but now they are talking about approaching drought.
A good Independence Day was had by the family, eating inside in the air conditioning. We had chicken prepared in a marinade the children like, and all the usual fixings. The ice cream sundaes were a hit.
The Girl keeps harping on her 'need' for a cell phone. For us, 12 is just too young for this. Yes many of her friends do have one. I guess I am getting old - I don't see the 'need' to text friends all the time. And as recounted previously on my Friday Fragments, there was an issue with bullying texts sent using another girl's phone, and my daughter being involved. So don't start planning anytime soon Missy.
