On the Sly

My father-in-law is in town this week so I’m trying to blog on the sly. He’s a nice guy and I wasn’t planning on talking smack about him on here or anything, but still. I consider this corner of my world to be reserved for friends, family that can’t disown me and perfect strangers. Not in-laws that I’m trying to convince I’m normal.

So far I think it’s going pretty well. He arrived Saturday evening and Sunday morning we went to the Farmer’s market. Sunday afternoon Nate and his dad planted 4 new plants in the amount of time it normally takes me to plant one. It was kind of awesome.

The problem I have now is that Nate is in class 3 evenings this week and I’m a pretty boring person. I mean I don’t get out much and in the evenings I watch TV and work around the house. I would like to possibly not bore Nate’s dad to tears. On tonight’s exciting agenda is a trip to Lowes, to buy more stuff for my yard, and then some Monday night football. I bought Iron Man and Indiana Jones (4) on DVD last week which I had planned to use later this week to distract him from my previously mentioned Boring, but he’s already seen one of them.

Tonight we’re going to the mall to buy a teddy bear for my dad. More about that later. It’s an interesting story.
