I'm On Board

I've resisted the lure of the blog mostly because I feel I really don't need one more thing to add to my "to do" list daily, but I'm caving in. I already check the blogs of friends routinely, so I might as well give them one to check in return.

My big news of the day is that both the babies are napping - in the house! Lately they will only nap while the motion of the car lolls them to sleep, which has allowed me the opportunity to get to know my surroundings in our new area of Texas, and has also added to our gasoline costs. The real reasons behind their nap at home today are:
1) My visiting teacher came right at about the time I usually pack them up for our daily spin.
2) The air conditioner in my car is running at a level not strong enough to blow a flea off a hammock nor cool enough to slow down a fly.

When the car was ruled out as an option, I resorted to the old reliable mother's helper, the television. We brought out blankets and pillows and reposed on the carpet while we watched Lightning McQueen blow his tires in "Cars". When they lost interest in that I turned it off and and switched to my DVR recording of "What Not To Wear". Amazingly, that worked when Disney had failed and they were asleep before Shopping Day 2 had even begun!
