I just realized, Ron will be back in Texas on day 200 exactly. Isn't that funny? I can't wait to go down to Dallas to pick him up at the airport! I spent most of today picking things up around the house so that it will be nice and clean for him when he gets here. You know, because he's been living in a third world country.... with a bunch of guys.... in a tiny little closet. So I figured it'd be great for him to have his giant house all clean so that he can just stretch out and relax. Of course, Cody may have destroyed it again by the time we get back here from Dallas, but you never know. Maybe I'll get lucky this time and nothing will go wrong. Yeah, right! Just tonight Cody came in from playing outside to tell me that he had his (3rd) new phone in his pocket and fell, and it broke. And guess what? He's gotten so many insurance replacements that they will no longer cover him. Go figure! So I had to call and have the OLD old phone activated... Damien's old Razr. You'd think the dang kid would learn something, but he doesn't. That's okay, though, becuase MOM sure has learned. NO more new phones for Cody. He will be getting a used phone next time if I can swing it, or whatever phone they have on sale. No exceptions. I am not going to keep throwing away our money like that, no matter WHAT he thinks. I am NOT that patient a person!
