Family Business

Annie and the boys/dogs left to go home today.The house is a little quieter. I was going to go with them for a visit but I changed my mind. Just imagine two women, two children, and four dogs in a small car on a five (or so) hour drive. Annie's two dogs are lab puppies and really cute. But they are a little much for Lady and Daisy. I, therefore took the coward's way out and told her I'd come visit with her later.

Last night while Traci and Annie were playing Warcraft in the kitchen Bobby and I were looking for something to watch on tv. So he turned to IFC (the Independent Film Channel). He stopped on a 1996 movie "Crash" which had been on for about an hour. He told me it was a "twisted" movie. We watched. He was right. Who wants to crash a car and then have sex in it? Very strange, even stranger considering I watched this with my son in law... Yikes.

Then this afternoon Bobby's father came by. He sat and talked to the grandkids. Traci sat in the kitchen. Should I sit down and chat? What to do. But, he left to get Bobby who had dropped his car off to get new tires. Problem solved, I guess, for now. When I first separated from Jimmy, Bobby laughed that his father and I could get together (Ha, not laughing). Bobby's mother died a while back so his dad is alone. No thanks. No way. That would make an odd joke. I could be Bobby's mother in law and stepmother all in one. No thank you! Glad it was only a joke.

Now, I'm off to see if the green beans I blanched are cool enough to be put in the freezer. Too bad Traci doesn't care for green beans. There are a lot of them. Now that it is quieter we can try to watch the Astros game tonight. Either that or the grandkids and I will be picking more green beans...
