Today Ollie decided that it is time for him to spend a few nights at my house. With both brothers away, I think he gets lonely at home. So, tonight was his first overnight at my new house. We brought over a twin-sized inflatable mattress and found a place in the living room that will have to serve as his ‘room’. We closed the blinds on the sliders, pulled the drapes, and closed the blinds on the skylights. Hopefully the morning light won’t wake him too early because we stayed up WAY too late watching the remainder of The Clone Wars and the beginning of The Revenge of the Sith.
It was a mostly cloudy day and not beach weather according to Ollie, so after I did a little morning house cleaning, we spent most of the day watching the Star Wars movies. I then took Ollie home to pick up some clothes and announce to his parents that he was moving to my house for a night or so. Then we came home and fixed dinner. Ollie wanted hamburgers, so I went to the store to get the burgers and buns. Ollie did the grilling while I cooked the corn-on-the-cob. The corn was really tender, and the burgers were done perfectly. Yum! It was the beginning of a delightful evening.
