Weekend quotes...

Papa came back from his fishing trip with Ed and said, "Ed invented a new toliet for the woods."
"Oh, yeah," I answered.
"Yep, it's the bucket and bag toliet. You sit on the bucket and put the bag over your head and no one can see you." *drumroll*

When taking pictures of the grandkids, Emily wanted to crawl around Silas so I asked him to hold her up...he says, "Okay, but my mom is NOT to see these pictures!"
____________________________________________________________________
Sunday morning, the three wake up in their fort they made. Jake comes out to me to get breakfast. "He's still in his swim trunks!" I say, "Oh, that's no big deal." Si says, "I'd never get away with that at home"...I say, "Yeah, my kids would have never gotten away with it either!" He and Molly say, "That's the fun part about being at your Mimi's!" Yep...grandkids sleeping in their swim trunks is not an issue after so many debacles you experience with your own children as they are growing up.
Side note...the swim trunks were not left on since the swimming expedition...we had been home quite some time...the trunks went on in the evening when the rain was pouring down...the opporunity to dance in the rain was not to be missed!

Papa came back from his fishing trip using curse words...if the youngun's weren't here, I'd have held him down and washed his mouth out with soap! His excuse: "Ed's a bad example." Geez, George!



Wish I could remember everything...

Wish I could upload the high dive jumps but the video is too big...

Shake, Rattle and Roll...

Emme B at Kid's Place...just a few hours before her bottom tooth starting stomping it's way through the gums with extreme disregard for baby happiness.

Men are from Mars and Women are all the wiser...

So, the grandkiddos are visiting this weekend...I promised that I would take them swimming at Woodland Pool. We have created memories there every summer for years and they remember...
I was preparing to take them Friday and it came a big rainy deal...so we opted for Kid's Place. Before we knew we weren't going though, we all got into our swimsuits...Silas, Molly, Jacob and Emme B...I went to get mine on...and well, it's a $80 swimsuit from Land's End I bought just last summer. Saddness upon saddness, I have lost so much of my...let's say, "chest"...that it was rediculous! There is no way I will be able to wear it so I will have to replace it. As if life is not hard enough already...
Saturday morning...I get up and prepare Emme for pickup, make the others some of their most loved oatmeal pancakes and prepare for another attempt to go swimming. I tell Papa, it's gonna be really rough not to be able to play in the water with the youngun's. And he replies with, "Well, can't you just run by Walmart and pick up a another swimsuit?" Did he really just say that?
Picture this, a Mimi, with three young children, ready to get to the pool, stopping by Walmart ...of all places, with the children...and zipping in trying on a swimsuit. She holds a few up and the 2 hour saga begins...after several trips to probably three different stores, the children are wanting to get in the water so badly they are willing to play in the store's drinking fountain and their Mimi is in a deep depression unable to even care.


Run by Walmart and pick up another swimsuit...my bohonkus!!!!
Thought my readers might need a good laugh...*sigh*

This was the day for OC Certification

This is my eye, face, ears and neck on fire...get the picture?

I was OC certified at my previous place of employment.
This experience was twice as painful...no three times as painful...
I think I would rather birth a baby....
At least you'll have something to show for the pain, as Ariel commented earlier.

I keep getting these "doggie" emails...

Had to share this with you..from the Jay Leno show

video

BTW, I dreamt last night that Winston sat on my lap...He backed up to me sitting on the couch, placed his bohonkus on my knees...stood up on his hind leg tippy toes and sat down on my lap...I said, "Papa, look at this!" He replied, "That's just wrong!" Strange part of my dream for sure...

And now a break from my studies...

Why am I posting this? I am exhausted from studying for my Math exam...I just want to be a part of your world, too...

So, I'm sharing something my aunt sent in an email.

TYPE IN a command under the dog and see what happens... sit, roll over, down, stand, sing, dance, shake, beg, fetch, play dead, etc, and...
it's also very cute if you type in a command that's not recognized...!!

Make sure you type in 'Kiss', too, but do it last!!!
It's kinda sad to close the window after he plays with you...such an obedient fellow...
he deserves a treat!

Happy Birthday to me!

What a surprise!
Papa set up a great birthday get together...I had a wonderful visit with everyone. I only wish time had not went so fast. That's how it goes though. You are busy playing with barbies, riding your bike, wanting your Mom's attention, when suddenly you are married and have a house full of children you want to give your undivided attention to. Then you look up and they have goals they are trying to reach, children of their own and busy lives and you're 43. Life is like that. Moving quickly.
Best to grab ahold of every minute and make it the best.
I had a hold of a really good moment tonight.
Thanks to my little family...
Just a note: Megan: Your card was soooooo great! I could hear you saying Har! Har! Wish you could have been here!
