Trash-Can Bears -- Oh My!

Rainy, dreary Friday. Still have the sickie home, her fever's gone but stomach's really bothering her today. She's doing the no-pants dance today and is chillin' on the couch in a t-shirt. The kids get out at 1 PM today and since she's still not 100%, there was no sense sending her to school today.

I think this is the first weekend in a long, long time that we have no major plans. Chris is in Charlotte today and should be home around 6-ish. Tonight's football game is away and we don't have plans to attend. T will be there helping out the Buccanettes. Chris has lax practice Saturday and T is now taking an 8:30 AM dance class on Saturday morning. Sunday is Fall ball. Don't know what time the Alabama game in Saturday but Chris mentioned Penn State is playing Michigan. This is the game he usually has some buddies over and puts the TV out on the deck and has a fire.

My nephew cracked me up on the phone the other day. He had kind of a "rough" day at pre-school and he told me it was because he was tired and cranky. He said the trash-can bears kept him up all night. You see, trash-can bears are different from other bears. When it's dark and everyone is asleep they go thru your trash and make a lot of noise. I asked him if trash-can bears were indigenous to Pennsylvania and he said No. There are trash-can bears all over the world. We also had a very nice discussion about polar bears (FYI -- they are white and very furry) and sharks and dolphins.
