It's Tuesday, it's random. You know the rap. Go see Keely for more.
-> My "Spin Cycle- Collage" idea spun way out of control. It started with me scanning photos of my Mom for the collage. Then I remembered I promised my cousin I'd scan him some old family photos, so I added those to the pile. Then while I was sorting, I found some really neat ones of my grandfather that are starting to age poorly, so I thought I'd better get those scanned, too. Then I had a pile of over 70 photos to scan at Target. Oh, wait, I had to get to Target. Without the boys (because nothing spells disaster clearer than two toddlers at the self help photo center and a complicated project). Yeah, last Friday before that happened.
-> We had a house guest this past weekend. Auntie Steph, who usually comes in for major events (weddings, births, etc) came for a random visit. Because there were no new babies, or weddings, we actually got to hang out and go do stuff together. I learned how to play Mexican Train (where has this game been all my life?) She helped with the photo project (because it required all 4 of our hands).
-> Her one goal for her Cleveland visits has been to visit a Michael Symon restaurant. Until recently, he only had 2. Neither one is "cheap" or kid friendly. However, he recently opened "The B Spot". Amazing burgers. I highly recommend it. And the root beer float? I ate and drank so much I could barely move.
This thing just creeps me out. LG came home singing part of the song, so I had to google it to find out what the whole thing was. He came home with "snaps that monkey right out of the tree" which was a little disturbing, but not half as disturbing as watching this man sing the whole song
-> Little o has decided on a new method of walking around. He's tired of his walker, and still refuses to walk alone. So now? He grabs the back of LG's shirt, pulls himself up and toddles along behind LG. You can imagine how much LG loves this. "Maaaaaamaaaaaaa, he's gooooooot meeeeee!" I have to try really hard not to laugh when I detach O, though. It's pretty funny stuff. If I can contain myself next time, I'll get video.
-> Every once in a while I have to remember that my kids are not trying to thwart my personal plan for success. It's hard, though. There are days I swear that LG won't use the potty just to piss me off. He can use the potty, he wants to wear Elmo underpants. He just doesn't bother. Then I remember that I'm not the one in wet pants. And it's not me that'll be going to Kindergarten in Pull Ups. He'll get his act together eventually. I might end up carrying little o down the aisle at his wedding, though.
Ok, enough about me. How are you?
