Summertime…and the living is easy

Well, I am completely, 100% over teaching summer school.

The everyday thing stinks. The students are burned out, and some have quit caring. I am trying to make it interesting and exciting, but it is so hard. It will be over next Friday, praise the Lord!

I had a fairly entertaining weekend. On Friday, a friend from Dallas, Kim, came up to NWA, so me, her, and Beth hung out. We had dinner at a fun little local coffee shop and had yogurt. It was great to catch up with the girls.
Saturday, I went to Ty’s shop and helped out. I feel like I can do more and more there, which is good. I am finally feeling like maybe I belong in that realm of his life. One funny thing happened…I was watching the mechanic’s new puppy, Oakley. He is a precious puppy, and he is still being potty trained. Well, Oakley moved over to the big black plastic mat that is under the office stools, and he squatted. I was just about to pick him up and move him outside, when he had EXPLOSIVE DIARRHEA. EW. Everywhere on the rug. And it smelled so bad. I could tell this little puppy didn’t feel well because immediately he ran to his bed and laid down with a sad look on his face, so I didn’t punish himI thought for a split second about trying to clean up the mess, but the smell overtook me. I couldn’t do it. I just dragged the rug outside so they could hose it off. I couldn’t deal with it. When I came back in, I tried to find something to cover the smell, but all I could find was Windex…so I sprayed windex ALL over the front counter area to mask the smell. Ugh. Gross.

Then mom and dad came to town and took Ty and I out for a nice meal. We went to Copeland’s and had a great dinner and dessert. It was so good.

Ty and I at dinner
Our favorite thing at Copeland’s is their spinach dip…they serve it with fried bowtie pasta instead of chips or bread. It is soooo yummy! Mom and dad each had a little tasting plate (of crab ravioli and steak) and Tyler and I shared crab cakes with shrimp alfredo. Then we all had their wonderful cheesecake (Mom and dad had white choc strawberry, I had praline, and Tyler had their chocolate cake). Delish!
My wonderful parents after dinner! Don’t they look full and happy! ha!
That night, me, mom, and Ty sat on the couch playing online trivia games all night and it was so fun! We played “Name that Car Logo” and “Grease Trivia” and “Name that 80s song” and much more. We were being so competitive and having a blast. We laughed all night long!

On Sunday, we went to visit Aunt Bobby and Uncle Jerry a couple hours away. We had a great visit with them. We ate BBQ, watched our wedding video (since Aunt Bobby was just getting out the hospital when we got married and didn’t get to come to the wedding), and visited and had a great time. Then we came home, napped, and watched TV. It was a great weekend.
