Do, a Deer

Current mental soundtrack: "Do-Re-Mi" from The Sound of Music

Swimming lessons are over with for this session, and both kids made a lot of progress. B moved up from "Sea Turtle" to "Seal," while M moved from "Frog" up to "Sea Turtle." In plain English, B can now swim across the pool by herself (freestyle), and M can get about halfway across.

We're getting ready for a quick trip to San Diego next week, so today was the beginning of all those errands that have to be done before going anywhere. Today I copied some music that I need to mail, picked up prescriptions, and bought groceries. Tomorrow I have to mail the music I copied today, return a library book, turn in my June timesheet, and buy a mouse to feed the snake before we leave.

I also did 7-8 loads of laundry, took B to piano lessons, and cleaned the fridge. Well, only the main part of the fridge--I'll do the door some other day. For some reason, we seem to have a hard time keeping pickle jars upright in our fridge--there were at least two different spills that smelled (and looked) like pickle juice. Pickles have now been banished to a separate plastic bin that sits on the fridge shelf.

DH and I watched The Sound of Music last night. DH has somehow avoided ever seeing it before, so I thought it was time. He did recognize some of the songs I've been heard to sing over the years :-) The extras in the 40th-anniversary edition were very interesting--we are going to finish watching those tonight.

Apparently "Hello, Dolly!" figures in the new Pixar film WALL*E, and Mr. 42 expressed some concern that he might not get the subtleties because of it. I assured him that he'd recognize all the songs (I played Dolly in high school and remember most if not all of the words). He was excited when I told him that the "and we won't come home until we've kissed a girl" song is in it :D

I'm delighted that you've filled a significant hole in DH's cultural education, in spite of the silly breakings into song!
