Well, the first thing of note...

...the trip to the orthodontist for Boy on Friday was remarkably uneventful. And cheap. He was back there for about five minutes while they installed but a single spacer between two of his back teeth. THURSDAY, however, promises to be much more involved and costly. Goes in first thing that morning and gets a full set of wires. ::sigh::

But, at least I was able to get through early and get the Focus fixed finally. Fantastic! Yanked off the old hose and PCV, put in the new ones, and THAT was done in about five minutes or so. Zipped down to the foot of the hill and had Lisa the Parts Guy erase the fault code and reset the warning light, then it was on to pick up the girls from Grandmom's.

Home, and it was pizza night when Mom got there. Ordered from Papa John's online, and it got there in 30 MINUTES! Amazing. And they didn't have to call for directions this time.

As we waited, the kids got out and rode their bicycles. A wonderful evening--the sun had gone down, and there was a strong breeze blowing from the north. Looked like a storm somewhere. Didn't rain at the house, though. But it was so nice and quiet and peaceful, even with the various whooping and hollering of the kids. And the Wreck of Boy, when he hit his nose with the handlebars when he fell off onto the sidewalk.

The pizza guy pulled up as I was on the end of the driveway. We swapped hellos and pizza, and then there was supper, and that was pretty much the end of Friday.

Which led directly to Saturday...
