Back to it.

Here’s a little gem nugget for you…I’m in my room yesterday, turn around, and Colin is standing in the doorway.

“Can we eat clams?”


“Can we eat clams?”

“Who?  You?  People in general?”

“No!  Can WE eat clams?!” *he’s now starting to look at me like I’m a little slow in the head*

“Right now??”

“NO!!  Can we EAT them?!”

“Technically yes.  Some people do.”

“EWWWW, but they’re seafood!”

“Yes.  Some people like them.  Daddy and I like them in clam chowder.”


“No, clam chowder is good.  It’s soup.”

At this point, he starts making gagging noises, slaps his hand over his mouth and runs away.  Then I hear “Oliver!!  Mommy and Daddy eat clam powder!!  Gross!!!”  Mmmmm, clam powder. 

Today is finally back to normal routine day.  After 18 days of the boys being out of school (not that I counted), I’m so ready.  One is already at his and the other is leaving in a few.  Then, back to the gym for me!  I’m actually looking forward to it.  3 weeks off is way too long.  2 months before that of half-assing it is even longer.  Time to sweat.   

I’ve got loads and loads….and loads…of vacation pictures to go through.  I fully intend to get them all in one place and then making a post about it and pretending like I have a bunch of people in my living room being forced to go through the slideshow all the while wishing they could at least be drinking through the explanation of each picture they couldn’t care less about but they have a horrible host who refused to serve them anything until the presentation is over so their suffering only grows with each slide.  I’ve always wanted to be that person at least once.  Not really, but it makes me laugh thinking about it.  But, I won’t do any of that today.  Today is sweat, lunch date day (YAY!), errand doing if there’s time, and then school’s out.  And, I don’t actually have all the pictures in one place (ALAN! :p) yet. 

I love this article.  You should read it.

    Let me be the first to sign up for the excruciating (it’s only 9:15am and I used “excruciating”, spelled properly, in a sentence. Wow.) slide show! I’ll bring my own drink and snacks, so no worries there. I do believe you have most of the vacation photos… since I took only a few… so get cracking, Woman!

    Today it was 50 degrees outside when I woke up. I am wearing my new woolen slippers with half a sheep on one foot and the other half on the other foot. I’ll have to put them away again after today, since the temps will go back up into the 80’s. I like my slippers, and would like to wear them for more than one day at a time.

    I scanned the article, and since I have never held a gaming controller in my hands except to move it from one box to another, I realized I am old. Old as dirt. I’ll have to take my inspiration from tried and true (to me) sources: does this detergent really make my clothes whiter, for instance. My bottom line has always been “Life’s a Beach, and then you die.” I don’t even go to the beach any more. Too hot. I’m rambling.

    As to the clam powder, that kid is just the most inspiring and hilarious kid E VER! His mind is very deep and unfathomable, and I know he is going to keep you on your toes. How is his Wonderland coming along?

    Glad you are home safe and sound. We got home and our AC went out… life’s a beach, you know.

    Love and hugs,
