Nick is almost ready.

30th September 2006 | 7 Comments

To be married off, that is.  Sometime in the past two or three days (gimme a break, I don’t even know what today is!) I was sitting at the dining room table probably recuperating from cleaning up barf or my own dizziness.  I saw Nick walk down the hallway, go in the bedroom and grab [...]

Quarentined. Part Three!

28th September 2006 | 1 Comment

We survived the Dr’s office and, thankfully, nobody puked while there.  Dr’s diagnosis:  “It’s just a viral gastro-somethingorother, sounds like it’s making the rounds and is on it’s way out.”  He said to just keep doing what I have been doing: feed them light stuff if they’ll eat it, but heavy on the liquids (Pedialyte) [...]

Quarentined. Part Two.

27th September 2006 | 1 Comment

Yes there’s a part two already. That last post?  Yeah, forgot to knock on wood after typing that.  Nick threw up three times after lunch!  THREE TIMES!!  And I started to feel worse too, thankfully no throwing up for me though.  Alex is still at about fifty percent normal.  Nick’s had it much worse than [...]

I don’t care if I spelled that right, in case you were wondering.   Some sort of plague is upon my house.  One of those plagues that makes us run for the bathroom.  A lot.  Unless you’re an almost seventeen month old boy, then it just makes you stand where you are and do what needs [...]

You’re not supposed to laugh!

Alex likes to grab onto both of my legs and stick his head between my knees.  I don’t know why.  Sometimes he just hits his head against my butt or crotch, whichever he’s facing.  The other morning he was hitting my crotch and I said “hey, c’mon, I might need that someday.” The little bastard [...]

Beer to go.

The race is in town. This means more rednecks than you can shake a stick at are surrounding us. This morning after breakfast I loaded the boys up and strolled them over to the track. It’s a 10-15 minute walk through a temporary city of Winnebagos. We strolled around the trucks set up selling t-shirts [...]

Mom can’t knit lace..

21st September 2006 | 2 Comments

…but I can! This isn’t a particularely lacey pattern, but for this yarn I wanted something more solid with a little bit of lace.  This pattern is book recently purchased full of lace patterns for shawls and scarves.  I do have some yarn that would work really well in a more open, lacier pattern but [...]

Hey Nick!

I did it!  I got pictures of Nick!  Behold, the power of Nick. In very little other news, I did remember to watch the series premeire of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, staring the love of my life, Bradley Whitford.  Don’t ask why I have a crush on him, I think I’ve watched waaaay [...]

Hello Temple Law!

18th September 2006 | 6 Comments

Everyone say hello to all the Temple Law students out there! This past weekend I hung out with my brother and his girlfriend who is attending Temple. She told me that she has wisely choosen the cutest background around, pictures of the boys, and that it has drawn quite the gathering of law students. Nick [...]

“Satan’s Asshole”

14th September 2006 | 2 Comments

Yesterday I had to go to the DMV. Or, as one of my favorite comedians calls it, Satan’s Asshole. I’ve never had a particularly horrible experience at the DMV, I have heard stories though. I know the stereotypes. But I’ve never had much trouble in all of my… 3.. maybe 4 trips to the DMV [...]
