Sunday we went to the Tiger's game. We had pretty good seats behind home base. It was so hot that wwe could only sit through a couple innings at a time before having to cool off. We rode the Tiger merry-go-round and baseball Ferris Wheel. After the game the kid ran the bases which was really cool.
FYI: David Lossing is the Mayor of Linden, Michigan.
Last night a man came to our door asking for Scott. Thinking it was a friend of his I told him he was golfing and should be home in about an hour. He tells me his name and shakes my hand. I replied with a Nice to meet you and we stand in silence for a few seconds before he clarifies that he is the city’s mayor.
Scott called earlier in the week to complain about the new No Parking signs installed on both sides of our newly paved street. Now that there is no parking allowed on the street people have been parking over the sidewalk. Sidewalks we paid a lot of money to have installed.
Mr. Lossing explains that it’s for safety of the children who dart out into the street to cars can better see them. He will let the police know to cruise the area checking for cars parked over the sidewalk and make sure the community is better informed. When I asked where people would park when coming to our yearly Summer Happenings, he started listing all the public parking spaces. I didn’t want to sound like I was attacking him but it sounded like half of the mentioned areas are blocked for the festival.
So nothing changed by Scott’s call except I was assured that when I had guests over for a party they would not be ticketed for parking in the street.

This silliness was started by their father years before they were born and continues on...
Conversation at dinner tonght.
Ted asked for more bread after "dropping" it into Maggie mouth - again.
I told him he has to eat more meat before the dropper-of-the-bread may have more bread.
Amelia: Ted's Indian name is dropper-of-the-bread. hahahahaha
a little later...
Amelia: I am a little Mommy. I want to be her when I get bigger.
Scott: What does Mommy do?
Amelia: She looks in people's ears
Scott: She is an Audiologist.
Amelia: Yep. That is her Indian name.
I CAN NOT believe that I spent $45 on a pair of flip flops!!! I got caught up in the Crocs hype with my kids and didn’t squint at spending that kind of money on their developing feet. But I can’t spend that kind of money on myself – especially on something I can’t wear to work. After my garage sale Maggie & I walked up to the local Spa and I purchased a black pair. Even with my discount I got buyer's remorse on the walk home. C'mon! They're flip flops! Forty-five dollars??!!?!?! I don't even like flip flops! I can't stand the little thingy between my toes. But after wearing them all week on vacation I don’t even like walking around the house without them. I haven’t suffered from the severe restless leg syndrome that I usually do and that is enough to justify the cost for me. I have yet to really discover whether they claim to shape my legs (let's be honest, no shoe can shape these legs!), but I will say this...they are cuter and more comfortable than I ever expected and I feel like a cool trendy mom wearing them.
Is this too much? she asks
It's OK, I said and handed it to Amelia.
I want too much too! Theodore shouts.
While changing, my sweet daughter walks up and points at my bare hips and announced that Mommy has stripes just like a zebra.
Thanks for noticing. Those stripes were a gift from you & your brother!! :-)
