Yesterday my husband calls to say that he needs a ride home from work because the car will not start. Crud!

It is at the repair shop currently with the help of a good old fashioned tow....wonder what is wrong with the ol' turdball????

...They called and think it's the starter ($318.00) or possibly the engine could be locked up (thousands) AHHH! We hope it is the lesser of the two evils! If it's not, the repair shop can consider themselves the new proud owner of it (per my husband's words).

Ahhh, just another day....

Why Do Children Have Brain Damage??

So, the twelve year old decides to have some fun in the kitchen the other day. Poor unsuspecting mom enters the kitchen returning from a bedroom mission and landed on her bottom!

That really hurt. My overly analytic brain was whirling. What had happened to my kitchen floor?? I mean, I usually keep it pretty clean, but never so shiny and as slippery as that day. So I decide to myself...I will ask the boy!!

I guess while I was working about in the house, he decided to take a little break from his schoolwork and have a little party. He thought it would be fun to spray the floor with pledge, put some socks on, and have a nice dust busting, skating arena.

HUH?? My brain just doesn't comprehend this sort of craziness! A part of me says, "very creative idea", and then the other part makes me think, "Are you that goofy, son??"

I know there will be many more adventures such as these living with all boys....I hope this is amusing to some of you....or some of you may be thinking this is payback from my childhood....whatever it may be, I know my kids are nuts.

Nothing will ever surprise me anymore...this is what motherhood has taught me.

We're Back From The Beach.

Home again after our great vacation.....time to unpack! This is my most dreaded part of vacation. Not only is the end inevitable...I have to put everything back in it's proper place.

We had a great time on the beach. The kids made a really huge sand castle with a retaining wall that survived high tide for a couple days...pretty amazing! We walked the stores and just relaxed in our condo. It felt wonderful just to lounge and be around family.

School and work to resume tomorrow...must go prepare!

Wonder where we will end up next year.........
