My Brain is Fried

Learning how to put people onto a commercial airplane is harder than you think (or at least harder than I thunk).
And I feel like I’ve lost my blogging mojo…….cuz ya know I had mojo.
But before my very last brain cell goes, I’ll tell you about our teenager.
She is my non-blogging sister, Angie’s middle daughter. Shaylene is her name.
She was looking for summer work and is not afraid of an adventure and we needed some babysitting help and live on the edge, so to speak. So here she came.
It has worked out great. She is babysitting the boys a little (actually it’s been alot while I’ve been doing my new job training, but it’ll be less starting next week) and she’s working at the grocery store.
Yeah, her Uncle Dave gave her a job and he’s glad he did. She’s dependable, shows up when she’s scheduled, and works hard (all qualities that are somewhat difficult to find here). She’s loving working and her earnings are adding up quickly. Between babysitting and the “quite a bit higher than minimum wage” pay that she earns at the store, along with nothing to spend her money on, she should go home with a good chunk of change for six weeks work
She’s made a few friends here and in her time off has discovered the joys of arctic wakeboarding and fourwheeling.
(yeah, that’s snow in the back ground!)
In her two weeks here, we’ve had only one curfew violation and I gave her the “you had me very worried and I thought I was going to have to call your mom and tell her something terrible happened” lecture and sent her bed with no facebook time. The next evening I asked her to stay in and she did so willingly. So it’s all good and we are loving having her here!
That’s all from this fried brain for now. I hope to have my mojo back soon because I do need to fill you all in on a Independence Day celebration like no other………..
soon, very soon.
I hope.

    Isn't the water cold like melting snow? Then how can Shaylene water ski without hypothermia setting in? Brrrr.I hope your mojo returns quickly. I want to hear about your Independence Day.

  2. bringing up boys

    Just keep the boys away, we don't want her longing for an arctic adventurer when she returns.

    Yes, please bring back your mojo! Love you! Miss you! Oh and for some reason, I have the wrong email address for you. Will you email me so I have the right one?

    So do you wear a wet suit to water ski? Does it keep you warm enough?? Does not compute :-)And I wonder if I could borrow a teenager from somewhere to help out around here this summer…
