Another day...

We had an interesting day here in mundane land! I finished chopping down the bush that was taller than the house in the front yard and it kinda fell on the fence. My dear husband was trying to sleep at that time, since he worked off and on through much of the night, which is why he wasn't there to help it fall away from the fence. He said he would rather do it later, but the trouble with later is that it never comes.
(A couple days ago, Ravenna, trying to quote a scripture, said, "Do not put off the day of your procrastination.")

So, I did what I could and then told him I thought it would be a good idea to get it off the fence before the dear neighbor with the perfect yard saw it. So, he hastened off to Sears to buy a chainsaw.

I fed my dear baby (7 weeks old today!) while he was gone. Then, we chopped up the tree together. Actually, there was no chopping involved, it just sounds wrong to say, "We sawed up the tree together," maybe 'sawed down' would sound better. Nah.

Then, Ravenna came home and did her homework. Then, we watched "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer" together, with Christian, while Geneva & Dexter watched a couple "Thomas the Tank Engine" movies instantly on Netflix on the computer in the bedroom. It's so cool that they have Thomas movies on Netflix, available for instant play!

Oh my goodness, I just looked up Buffy on and found that it is Paul Reubens that plays Lothos' servant, Amilyn! I love his dying scene! I had no idea it was him, I was just looking to see what his character's name was, because I didn't remember hearing it in the movie. He looks so different with ugly hair and fangs.

Well. You learn something new everyday. I hope.

Oh, the other exciting thing that happened today, I guess, I mean you can't portray tone of voice in print, but picture Ben Stein saying, "whoopee," and you'll know about how I feel about it, but I digress...
Uh, the phone guys came, about 2 hours ago, and fixed our home phone line, so Ravenna celebrated by making the first phone call and stayed on for two hours. Actually, she did hang up a couple times, but her friend called her right back each time and it was startling to hear it ring after all this time!
I said, "Let's unplug it."
She said, "It's music to my ears."
