Remember When

Remember that one time when we went to a 4th of July barbecue and everyone ended up with food poisoning?

Yeah... that happened last night.


The food was delicious going down, but not so much coming back up (or out... or both). And since we're still not sure what caused it... all those leftovers in our refrigerator are going right into the trash. And Joel's poor mom was in tears today because she feels so bad.

As Joel has been saying all day, "Shit happens... literally!" LOL

Luckily, the rest of our weekend was pretty epic. Joel's sister, Resha, was able to get Friday off work so we took Aniya to the new library to check out the children's section. It was SO NICE! They have all sorts of puzzles, computers full of stories and games, and a crafting room where we made a paper lantern. I also found out that they have a Teacher Resource Room with a laminator and die cutter. And you can print posters on their giant poster maker. I'll give you one guess where you can find me for the next few weeks of classroom preparations!

Puzzle time at the new library
Our city does fireworks on the 3rd, and we ended up with fantastic seats thanks to a hook up from Joel's stepdad (who has a guy for everything, I swear). The show was probably one of the better ones I've seen, which is good since we missed round 2 last night due to the sickness.


I'm telling ya, between the library and the fireworks show, I'm feeling pretty good about my city right now! It's nice to see my tax dollars well spent! :)

  3. AHHHHH...feel better. I missed the fireworks in Oakland because I didn't want to go to the ball game on Friday night...two games is enough for me. If they would've told me there were going to be fireworks that night...maybe I would've considered it! Can't wait to see the posters you come up with! xo
