I know that hubby and his brothers always found something to do.

So did my brothers. Unfortunately for me, being the only girl and 6 years younger than the youngest brother, it was "Mommmmmmmmmmmmm, get her out of my room!"

Evenin', all.

I wasn't enough of a tom-boy to be allowed to hang out with my brothers. :/

I was a tomboy but they were so much older -- 6, 8 & 10 years older to be exact.

I shadowed them whenever I could though.

My sister was like that, but they were pretty good at shaking her. She's 6 and 7 years younger than my brothers.

Were you driving during that white-out we had a little while ago?

...just catching up.

I drove through a white-out in Blue Ash on my way down 71. I was home before it got here. The grass is white even though it only snowed for about 20 minutes!

O.K. Skek, if your still around, and everyone else as well...
Good afternoon! I posted this when I first started "talking" here.

This is my then 6 year old son's room after I asked him to clean it. When he finished this is what I saw from the hallway. I thought "Great! I'll go get the vacuum and finish up for him."




Then I came back with the vacuum and opened the door the rest of the way...









Me- "Where are you going to sleep tonight?"

Son- "In my bed."

Me- "Where?"

Son- "Oh."

That pile is covering two beds by the way. His trundle bed was pulled out and is also under the mountain of toys!

OK. Just finished taking a pork tenderloin, herbing it with oregano, basil, and rosemary, salting and peppering. Then wrapped with bacon, put meat thermometer in, , coated with Olivia d Olio, and into 400 degree oven until temp reaches 155.
have potatoes cut up, to add for roasting after it cooks a while, too.

Wife bought a merlot yesterday, so it isn't perfect, but not a bad dinner.

That is a great story, I bet you told him to get everything off the floor put away. I tell daughter the same thing, but she hasn't thought about the bed yet, although her bay window is a frequent dumping spot.

He has two large tubs and 2 sets of stacking bins in the corner of the room that are usually empty because his stuff is all over the room!

Pretty good, thanks. Work is still busy as heck, but at least high school basketball is over and I have more free evening time now.

I love watching the kids play, but I was starting to get tired of being at games 3 nights a week.

How're things down your way?

Thats a lot of being a good aunt! I didn't put a cover over the pool so my last couple of weekends have been spent converting it from bass pond to sparkling oasis! Spring break in a couple of weeks and the boys are going to want to swim.

If it stays sunny the water temp may be up to 70 by then! They did that last year and I thought they were nuts!
Have fun in Vegas! If I send you a dollar can you win me a million?

Gotta go do some dishes, see you later!

Sure sounds near perfect to me. "Wrapped with bacon" Explain, please. A few pieces over the top. Completely covered?

I just saw a commercial for AXE deodorant for men. I guess I'm turning into my mother, but that commercial sure seemed to me like 30 seconds of foreplay and I think I would have been embarrassed watching it with my kids.

That's not the stupid one where the stinky guy sprays himself, then peels off the "stink" as a girl comes up, is it?

No. This one, a hunk comes out of the bathroom with red boxers on and the girl on the bed is obviously impressed and they start rolling around on the bed and then the floor. I'm not sure it's deodorant because they were saying something about how skin feels.

Well, I accomplished one of my goals for the weekend -- Making my son miserable by going up to his room with trashbags for weeding through junk. We threw out 3 big bags of stuff. Mostly old magazines and junk. But he got all his DVDs put back in the cases -- that is, where we could find the corresponding cases or the DVD.

No, he was surprisingly docile during the entire event. He can actually use his drawing table now so that should be nice for him.
