Seriously, to all you dad's out there... hat's off.
I had a pleasant day. Got to sleep in until 8, which is late in this house. KG made me eggs and bacon for breakfast, and brewed my coffee! I got a couple of cards, ans then my parents came over with toys for the boy.
They brought us a new air conditioner and a sand box for TKJr, which then necessitated a trip to Lowe's for "play sand."
We went out for dinner (fried clams!), and had ice cream at Peaceful Meadows. Came home, and I put TKJr to bed.
Now it's time for a beer. That'll make the day complete.
I finally broke down and bought myself a pair of flip flops for around the house. I've had a life long adversion to sandals... so for those who have known me a long time, that's big news. I figured I end up spending a lot of time poolside, at the beach, or just kicking around in a sweltering apartment, so it made sense. If I can get used to it, I'll graduate to a pair of real sandals. Woohoo for me.
I don't know what the big deal has been. I was a strange little kid, and some of those strange mindsets have clung around. I remember the one and only time my parents tried to buy me sandals. I was maybe 4 or 5. We went to a little shoe shop in town. The salesman told me to take off my socks. I refused, freaked out, and tried to run away. Never did wear those sandals.
So.. almost 30 years later, I'm finally getting over it. My feet thank me.
