Oh my. This sucks. The fussing, the lying, the emotions, the general ups and downs hourly… I didn’t realize boys went through it to… though I must say, THEY STINK. At the end of the day I do not want 2 or more middle school boys in my car. BARF. Please help me understand why they do NOT want to take a shower when they smell so bad. I know when they get interested in girls it changes but until then… how come I have to hear the whining? “Must I take a shower again?” D’uh it’s a new day and you stink. Yes you must! Help me!

Love this one
A Priest was being honored at his retirement dinner after 25 years in a parish. A leading local politician and member of the congregation was chosen to make the presentation and to give a little speech at the dinner.
However, he was delayed, so the Priest decided to say his own few words while they waited:
“I got my first impression of the parish from the first confession I heard here. I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place. The very first person who entered the confessional told me he had stolen a television set and, when questioned by the police, was able to lie his way out of it. He also had stolen money from his parents, embezzled from his employer, had an affair with his boss’s wife, taken illegal drugs, and given the clap to his sister. I was appalled. But as the days went on I learned that my people were not all like that and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and loving people.”
Just as the Priest finished his talk, the politician arrived full of apologies at being late. He immediately began to make the presentation and said:
“I’ll never forget the first day our parish Priest arrived,” said the politician. “In fact, I had the honor of being the first person to go to him for confession.”
Moral : Don’t Be Late

I washed my son’s tennis shoes the other day. They have been moved all over the house. This morning I lined them up by the dining room table. I wanted to have a better look later to see if they are worth keeping for me or should I throw them away. And at 5:30am this morning Champ spotted them. Now the lighting is not good and he was really upset. His hair on his back was up. Legs straight. I went to the dining room to see if some animal had gotten into the house. Nope. I finally stopped and looked at his eyes and realized he was looking at the shoes. So I touched them and said it was ok. He ran to the other side and growled and barked at them. I laughed. What a silly dog. Good guard dog. Keep me safe from clean shoes!

Say what? My boys keep talking about this game or that item being OP. My terms were on the lines of ‘No Duh’, ‘Gnarly’, ‘Where’s the Beef?’, and more… so I had to ask about OP. It means Over Powering. It’s an acronym. Guess it fits with the phone texting and general attitude of the day. I know I have a few years left in this world… I’ll be interested to see what the slang of 2010s will be!

We were talking about guitar racks storage at musicians friend and how many it could hold. He was saying he might need one of these racks if he got a bass guitar or an electric guitar. He told me that both required amps but that the bass was lower sounding and the electric was the same sound as his acoustic guitar. I can still learn new things. Then again, I am learning a lot about music with my kids.

Ok, I need to work on my titles… but I really thought off and on all day that today was Wednesday. Having the kids off 2 days last week and then having to work the weekend… really through me off. Isn’t daylight savings coming soon? I think I need to re-evaluate what I’m doing and when. I can’t seem to keep up with my own life! Where is that pokemon game… I need to lose myself in a false reality.

Last August I stuck my hand in a dog’s mouth. Long story but my engagement ring got damaged. I had planned on getting it fixed but so many things happened since then. This morning while thinking about it, I couldn’t resist looking around online and found Reeds.com diamond rings. Ok, I don’t need a new one, I need mine fixed. But it was fun looking. Now back to finding a place in town that will fix my ring. Time to call some friends and see if anyone knows a local jeweler.

Worked Saturday morning while hubby took kids to pancake breakfast. Oh, and he won some of the silent auction stuff. I will be going to get it later today. Found the music school for my younger son to take a piano test for furthering his education in music. Came home to insanity. With the day pretty much gone. Mom Mom MOm MOM. I was tired of hearing that. Then Sunday comes around. We have to sell scout camp cards from noon to 2 – the boys did AWESOME. From 2:30 to 3:30 was my youngest den meeting. Did I mention the dad that was going to run it called at 10:30ish and said he couldn’t make it. Yaaa… I was running full force Sunday morning trying to get everything together. Overall, not a bad weekend… music, learning new things, and pokemon! Yep. I made time to play it. Just a few minutes here and there… but I needed the break. Life is good.

Seems to be the season for silent auctions. Boy Scouts, Band and Schools. The band one has been going on for many many years and it shows. They have park tickets, hotel weekend stays, lawyer consultation time, dental discounts, doggie day care gift certificates and more than you can believe. They have music lessons but no musical instruments. Can you image if they had gotten b3 guitars at musicians friend for this? Talk about awesome. Don’t get me wrong, they have tickets and signed stuff to a show in Hollywood worth over $2000. No joke. So while I mentioned the guitars tongue in cheek, I wouldn’t be surprised if it happens in the future. It is amazing what people will donate. And a wonderful thing too!
