Today In A Word: Chaotic

Yesterday the Bug Boys were here.  They drilled holes all around our house, then this morning came back and finished their task of 'termite prevention'.  


This morning Summer was here to hang out with me while her mommy attended Field Day at school with Rissi.


It was hot.  So I decided I would try out my new snow cone machine.  

Disaster.


I ended up transferring the ice to my Ninja instead.  Snow Cone machine =JUNK.  Ninja = AWESOME


Every time I looked out a window, I was face to face with one of the Bug Boys....


Though all the blinds and drapes were closed (Mad Dog prevention) Gracie found it amusing to tear through the house at breakneck speed barking non stop for 3 consecutive hours, sniffing under doors, and listening in between barks for any sign of strange talk from outside,  until the Bug Boys were gone.

 Meanwhile, I tried to amuse the little one with Sponge Bob Squarepants and snow cones.  


 Gary was next door in the office doing a hearing test, so    another of my morning tasks was to answer the phone and watch the camera/monitor so I would know to run next door if I would see a car pull up to the office so I could take care of whoever it was without interrupting the hearing test.  


 When someone came I would scoop up the little one, run to the door with Gracie lunging at my heels to get out and get at those Bug Boys, shoo her back inside, dodge the Bug Boys who were working around the house, and...  well... you get the picture.


 Chaos finally ended, and the Bug Boys wrapped things up and were on their way.  Gracie fell asleep.


The girls met Anvil and enjoyed picking flowers.


And another quiet chaotic spring day was behind me.

Days like this pass. Love the girls with the gorilla. Love the gorilla holding the pot of flowers. Is the gorilla named Anvil??? How fitting.

Marissa is growing so much, and she is so beautiful! I bet she keeps a close eye on little Summer. Do you have any bugs? I think the girls like Anvil, and he likes them, too. But it is his job to not show it. That is pretty much the reason I bought my little Ninja, for ice crushing.
