Today I took a nap that was less than restful. 
First I dreamt that the house we were living in caught fire.
I remember knowing in my dream that Ben had died
because I wanted to get all of his stuff out of the house.
I wore socks to bed because my feet were cold.
But woke up from my dream FLAMING HOT!
I kicked my socks off and rolled over.
Too late, I was awake.
And feeling like something wasn't right.
I threw the covers off and ran downstairs.  
It was even HOTTER than upstairs.
The thermometer read 94 degrees.
I could hardly breathe.
I looked at the pellet stove and realized my mistake.
I had turned the burn rate up thinking it was the blower speed.

I gave up the nap and headed out to run some errands.  
Because I was tired and feeling lazy, 
I threw my hair up into a hat.
After the errands were through,
I met the kids over at the school to pick them up.
Kayla was still finishing up her practice
so Kaleb and I sat and watched.
Out of the blue he turns to me and says...
"Mom, no offense but you don't look good in a hat."
First off all, I'm not trying to 'look good in a hat'.
I just didn't want to do my hair.
Secondly, WHAT?!?
"And those shoes?  They don't really go with your outfit."
(as he slides down the bleachers)
I just got totally dissed by my 14 year old.

I had bet money you had already changed your FB profile to that hat shot. I lost. Uncool.

ha ha! I can't wait till Jalen starts telling me similar things. I'm still pretty cool in his eyes, but I don't think it'll be too long.
In my opinion I think you are ULTRA cool!
