I don't have a funny title tonight

It's still hot here.

But I have good news. My husband is now employed!! The really good news is that he explained to the project manager our situation, and the guy remembered him from when he worked for the company a while back. The guy likes him, likes the work he does, and didn't want to lose him, so he offered DH a better job, which includes a company vehicle. He'll be working at least through the end of the year, so another happy thing. In this industry, to have a job for six months is a good thing.

The next good thing is that I have childcare for RWA. Bay got into the day camp-one kid cancelled, so they had one spot. My friend is going to take Kay, and also Bay when they don't have camp. Her son goes to the camp with Bay, and they're best buds.

I've been trying to get my house cleaned, which is just not fun. Not only is it killer hot outside, but with no A/C, it's really bad inside. But we're also dealing with the demonic two year old. If I pick up one thing, she pulls out two. Today, I got the kitchen cleaned and the floor mopped. I started washing our bedding, and then I realized that running the dryer would be disastrous. Well, I can't line dry my stuff, because #1, I don't have a clothesline, and #2, I'm so allergic to pollen, that I get really sick from line dried clothes.

Went to the bank, dealt with finances, got depressed, got some ice cream and took the girls to a park where we could eat it in the shade. It was much cooler than our house.

In other news, the spider carcass is still in the middle of the floor. I've decided that I'm not going to vaccuum because I want the reminder to the other spiders to be reminded of my wrath.

It's still hot, I'm thinking of filling my bathtub with ice cubes and sleeping there...

Yay for the job! Yay for the childcare! Boo for the bank and the a/c.

I made my dh kill the last two spiders I saw. One was, I swear, some genetic mutation. And I know in my heart of hearts that he was going to bite me on the toe and run up my leg and bite me some more if I'd gotten anywhere near him. I just know it.

I'm glad the job and daycare issues resolved themselves! :)

Thanks guys! I'm pretty happy.

Michelle, I don't want to miss you at Nationals!! We have to meet up.

Sela, I am certain that the evil things are plotting to take over the world. It is my mission to see that they don't achieve their goal.
