It's 2:30pm and what is your child up to???

(a little joke b/w me and mom) aka Marlo cannot tell the time.  I have discovered this quite some time ago and his skills have gotten so bad that I needed to post a picture.

Every afternoon, because I am at home for 6 weeks, at precisely 2:30pm Marlo goes to the backdoor and wants out to go read his comic books.  He comes in and begins to demand his supper/dinner.  I try and explain to him, which falls on deaf ears (literally) that it is not supper time and to knock it off.

He then proceeds to claw at his food container and starts slapping his ceramic food dish around on the ceramic tile - not a good mix.

The Right Place at the Right Time - Woohoo!!!

For over 20 years, yes 20, it has always been a dream of mine to have fire engine red dishes!!!  Enough for 8 people!  Forget the mugs, they're not that necessary.  Well, in my books anyways!  Just give me the bowls, salad plates, dinner plates, matching trays and a few serving dishes for good measure!

And.....the only time I can find 'red' things for my kitchen is either at Christmas or Valentines!!

I walked into Pier 1 today and the angels were singing!!!  And everything was more than 50% off to boot!!
I scored huge!

Merry Belated Christmas to me!!!!!

Inside the God Box

I found this to be very moving and just wanted to share it.

So True!!!

1. I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history when you die. 

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary? 

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu-Ray?

13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Rum and Coke than Kay.

17. I wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Ghetto” routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front.

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

22. Sometimes I’ll look down at my cell phone 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey – but I’d bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

I am doing great!

Thanks everyone for your well wishes, I am doing great and feeling awesome and it's only been one week!  I have another 5 weeks recuperating time so I can't imagine how much better I will be come then!

Although I won't be driving home for Christmas this year, Lou and I will spending it in Kingston with his family.  We take turns every year, too bad Nova Scotia is so far away.  How awesome would it be if it were only as far as Montreal? 

Merry Christmas and I hope you get everything you wish for.
