Is it in their genes?

I am a mom to 3 boys.

 
Handsome devils, no?
 
I also wife to one Bobster:
 
 
Lucky woman, no?
 
I know, I know, what more could I ask for.
 
Here's the thing.
 
I have never heard or seen a group of people talk to the television like they do.
 
From the oldest to the youngest.
 
Especially the youngest.  He talks to the Wii Mario Video Game like a boss.
 
The older ones will do it too but mostly with sports.
 
Then there's Bobster.  He pretty much talks to the wall.  Nah, he will talk to the tv as well.
 
To be honest it annoys the heck out of me.
I can't take it.
I feel like I live in an insane asylum when they do it.
 
Wait, wait,...maybe I do live in an asylum.
That's not the point.
 
Am I the only female subjected to this?
Do others do this?
Do females do this?
 
Tell me I am not alone!!!!!

Dams & Their Makers

Last night Cheeks was reading a book about The Transformers. 
One of the sentences ended in "Hoover Dam".

He thought it was a bad word.

I explained to him what a dam was & who built them.

Me: "Some are man made, which means men make them but others are built by beavers"

Cheeks: "Justin Bieber builds dams...YAY"

Sigh.

Let's Thanks James Joyce

For this stream of consciousness post.
Whose James Joyce you say?
You are killing this English major.  Killing me.
Look him up.  He is the father of stream of consciousness.

What's been going on lately?
Hmm.
Feeling blessed.
I am finding out that if you just wait long enough Heavenly Father provides.
Not that this means you don't participate or find means and just sit back.  This means that you might not see how He is providing but once He does you look back & says to yourself "Oh yea!"

See this kid with The Grandpop?
Oh, he's going to make me bald.
What a love BUT boy, do we have our hands full.

He was diagnosed with ADHD last year.
Thank goodness.
Now if we could just get his behavior under wraps all would be good.

The other day he told his entire class to put their finger up their butts.
This did not go over well.
Sigh.

We have put in for help.  He had behavior therapy last year and it seemed to help big time.  Sadly it came to end.  Lets keep our fingers crossed that we get approved again.  Bobster & I have tried everything.

The other boys are doing great.  Tim works non stop at The Grand Luxe CafĂ©.  If you have one in your area, go...do not stop to collect $500, just go.  The food is to. die. for.

Chris is getting ready to graduate 8th grade.  Where did the time go? When I met their dad, Christopher was in 1st grade.  The same grade Cheeks is in.  I feel so old.

That's about all going on in my world...well I need my 7th root canal...that's new.  It's really just par for the course.

Tell me, what is going on in your neck of the woods?

FlipFlops & Other Quirks

It's here.
Spring.
Summer is just around the corner.

Toes will be making an appearance.
Time for me to get my 1st pedi of the season, break out the sandels & slides.

Notice I didn't say flip flops or thongs.

Yes...these...

Are my mortal enemy.

Have been since I was a little girl.

I can not stand flip flops.  Or thongs.
Anything that goes in between my toes.

Gives my the chills.

I'm sort of sad about it really.

There are some too cute for words thongs & flip flops out there.
My tootsies balk though.

I take 2 steps and I'm dying...dying to put them in the trash & run free.

Not barefoot though because that's another no no.
I despise shoes but I love my socks.

It can be 90 degrees outside & I will put shoes on just to walk out back.
CAN.
NOT.
STAND.
BAREFEET.
OUTSIDE.

Come to think about it, I also wear socks around the house.
Not slippers...my feet get hot...just socks.
Sometimes to bed too.
Although most times, the cool sheets on my warm tootsies is just too good of a feeling.

Ah...coolness.

Tell me are you a flipflop/thong type of person?
