Happy Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day.  A day to remember all those men and women who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.  It is also considered the beginning of summer and the past few days it has felt like summer around here.   It is very hot and very humid.

The Running Nazi and I met this morning and ran 10 miles trying to beat the heat.  It was still very warm and humid even at 6:30 a.m.  Glad we got that over.  I'm spending the rest of the day in the pool.

The Boy was Best Man in his dad's wedding Saturday.  He said that everything went smoothly.  He got to do the things he wanted to do with his friend Friday and Sunday, but still showed up on Saturday for the wedding.

He never got his hair cut, but his grandparents got hold of his hair with plenty of hair spray and managed to get it looking pretty good.  It will most likely still be plastered to his head in that same style for the next month or so.

He also got home an hour earlier than I expected and The Murph and I were out with friends.  I got a call from The Boy with the security alarm going off in the background and The Boy asking me for the code.  He didn't remember it and he didn't call me to let me know he was on his way home.

Good thing he was able to get in touch with me or he would have some explaining to do when the police showed up at the house.  Would not be a good thing for The Boy.  If he didn't remember the code, he probably wouldn't remember the password either.  Not good!  That was Saturday.

Then Sunday, his friend drops him off at the house early and we aren't home yet and he has forgotten his key.  He calls me to let me know he's home, but doesn't say anything about not being able to get in the house.  We take our time getting home and when we arrive, he's sitting outside, locked out.

It's going to be an interesting summer.
