The Weekend in Review

Yes, dear Reader, because there’s only one of you…

Mr. Mouse will be heading to the big city of St. Louis for an internship this summer, provided all other minutiae of life decisions works out the way we want it to. He studied really hard for his drug test (ha ha) and background checks are already underway. This is very good news. I am trying to convince him it would be a good idea for his little mouse brain and little mouse paws to rest for a week or so after his graduation–get a chance to refresh and renew before plunging in to working full time again. We shall see how that works out. We headed to visit the families this weekend, had corned beef and sauerkraut, ate pizza way too late, found our favorite Easter candy, oohed and aahed over the patio doors in Home Depot, and played with the puppies. Okay, so they’re not little anymore, 67 and 73 pounds–but who’s counting? They have gotten really good at digging in the pasture, and one of them pulled out a mouse! Ahhh! I also fell in love with a 1949 Ford F6 that’s up for auction in a local town. It’s not rusty at all, has good tires, and basically needs sandblasted, painted, a thorough scrubbing, and a new set of seats. Sigh. It would be nice to have for parades to pull floats and that sort of thing for little meeces later on, but I guess it’s not meant to be. Somehow I doubt it will sell for much, but we have no place to keep it while we stay in school. Just bad timing I guess. Well–that’s it, not much to be ecstatic over, but just enough to be kind of interesting.
