Lucky man...

Went out with the girls last night... so much fun! After we finished eating, the waitress came up with a beer and told me it was from a guy who wanted to remain anonymous that he just wanted to tell me that 'my husband was a lucky man'... figured out it was the cowboy in the corner... I told hubby about it and he said that the cowboy was right! I think I'm pretty lucky!

Health reform...

LOVE the health reform bill that was passed in January... now I need a prescription for my NON-prescription drugs so that my Health Savings Account will reimburse me our money... so glad that the government is happy to drown the average American in paperwork!

Babysitter...

Babysat a friends kids last night... what a hoot!

We were going to do a 'movie marathon' and her son (7) told me that he could not sit down because he has a problem with his legs... it started about 10 years ago!

A little later, her daughter (2) found one of my boys' walkie-talkies and started calling Elmo.  She was adamant to get him on the line... about 20 minutes into it, Sean yells over and says "Ky-Ky's calling the Devil"... I looked over to hear her say, "Devil?  Devil?"

Right before my friends got back to pick the kids up Sean runs up to me and announces that he "married Ky-Ky because he kissed her on the lips"... my children are so confused!

Soap Box...

In such a poopy economy, Customer Service is key people! Why do I continually get crappy customer service?!? Do these people think they are the only options out there?!? Dime a dozen baby... dime a dozen! I'm taking my business elsewhere!

Honesty... honestly?!?

Sean said he wanted to play the Wii...I told him he could play for a bit...he said he wanted to play the computer after the Wii...and I said he could play (the more educational) computer for a bit but he was going to have to find something else to do because his eyes were going to be tired from looking at the TV and the computer...so he said with a sweet Sean smile, 


"Mom, I'm getting tired of looking at you!"

House hunting...

What I saw while looking at other peoples houses: 


A fish tank that hangs on a wall, 
really unstable shelving, 
guns just laying out on tables, 
knives, 
a large bracelet that said F**K, 
noisy neighbors working on cars, 
and the number one thing... 
            adult neighbors shooting BB guns at a cement wall! 

I think we will keep looking...

Discouraging...

Looked at houses this afternoon... I was running late and the realtor called when I was three minutes away and told me not to worry about looking at the house because it was gutted! 


Looked at two others with jacked up floor plans and severe need of new carpeting among other things... and lets not forget the fourth that was also gutted and missing half of all the interior walls! 


This is going to take a while!

Armand Hammer...

Ran across an Arm and Hammer ad in Womens Health Magazine... at the bottom it advertised a website for Armand Hammer. Couldn't figure out why they would do that?!? www.ArmandHammer.com 


Sometimes I can be dense! It's like the sign that said 'Restarea Closed' and I thought it was something in Spanish!

Snow revelation...

We are on Day #4 of no school... 


Translation: Ethan is going to go to school 4 more days at the end of the year because they don't build snow days into the school year! 


This would explain why they like 2 hour delays so much...

Mugging for Moon Boots...



Some lady at Costco last night told me that my Moon Boots looked warm... then she told me she felt like 'mugging' me for my boots! I laughed and walked quickly to my car...

Snow Day!

No school today! This may be the first official full day off since we moved here... normally they do a two hour delay and that's it.

Audition-er Critic...

Boys had an audition yesterday for some TV show thing... Ethan flew through it like a professional. Sean, on the other hand, started out that way until the interviewer and the camera guy freaked him out... couldn't blame him because they kind of freaked me out too! Afterwards, I asked Ethan how it went and he said the interviewers voice started out quiet but she eventually got better!

Oh Funny Sean...

Next time Sean is digging his heels in to pitch a good fit I'm just going to say the magic word... 'Fart'... it should induce immediate laughter and complete upward mood swing... this tactic should also erase any previous memory of the aforementioned fit... I feel brilliant right now!

Gotta love a good fart fairy tale!
