Welcome Back, Zoot!

So, the last time we spoke I was in Knoxville, right? Well…that was an educational trip. And by “educational” I mean “confusing and frustrating and very overwhelming.” Luckily, the people at each bank I had to deal with were very wonderful. And by “wonderful” I mean “patience and understanding and not irritated over my questions.” For the most part I got everything done I needed to with the banks. There’s still an entire house to deal with…but that can wait. Or at least it will wait because it has no choice.

I had taken a four-day weekend to deal with that stuff and decided as soon as I got back to Huntsville that I was going to try to cram enough family activity into the remaining time so that we could all pretend we spent the four days together doing family stuff. So I can look back on my “weekend” very proudly. I didn’t vacuum and I barely finished the laundry…but we played in some fountains, in a creek, went shopping, and wore hats. We even cut hair! (You’ll have to break away from the feed reader to check out my sidebar if you’re curious about that statement. Sorry!) You can’t beat that on paper but you really can’t beat it when I show you the awesome photos as evidence.

    You must tell us where you got that dress for NikkiZ in the last picture! She is adorable-as always. Looks like everyone enjoyed the water, and well…that is one heck of a haircut! Looking good Zoot family!

  15. Mine was BUSY! I’ve spent it working, cooking dinner at 10AM so the kids can eat at supper, we went to a movie, and after last night’s shift, I watched True Blood and Hung. I think I’m starting to get a bit delirious due to exhaustion.

  16. Tiffani says:

    I’m hanging out at the beach with my family, having a glorious time.

    Glad the banks were cooperative and nice.
