I guess I'll go eat worms!


Remember this post?

Well, the 80 degree weather has returned and, once again, it is hotter than hades at the Babbling household. And the air conditioner is being all tempermental and isn't working.

And - wouldn't it just figure - B's car is acting up and is on its way to the shop as we speak.

A little break, that's all I ask for, just a little one. Like, maybe just one or two months where we can just save money for the next impending financial drama. We're just on the verge of being debt free (with the exception of our student loans - blah!), so I should have figured that we were destined to have to fix, repair, or replace something. Adulthood seems to work that way. Sigh.

In other news, Baby B and I took a lengthy walk today which proved to be rather lucrative. First of all, I found a pedometer just laying on the sidewalk. It's a cheapo one, but it works. Then, I found two quarters. Can't beat being paid 50 cents to go on a walk, huh? And, lastly, and most importantly, I found a lovely, slimy earthworm that I couldn't help but show Baby B. Having never experienced the wonder and amazement that was his first earthworm, I made sure to document the whole experience so that I could blog put pictures in his baby book about it. He's holding the creepy crawly in the second picture after snagging it out of my hand.

Somehow he managed to squish the worm into two pieces while I wasn't looking (fooling with my camera maybe?), and I think I got earthworm pee all over both of our hands, but, hey, whatever. It was fun and squishy and earthwormy.

We're headed to The Lake for the extended weekend, so we'll be a little MIA for the next couple of days.



Oh, and because I think everyone should eat their dinner off of their head, I will leave you with this...

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, BFFs!

I love the look on Baby B's face when he's holding the earthworm- priceless!
