Cheeky

A few minutes ago, I asked Gabe to “pick a hand,” and when he chose it, I gave him the M&M that was hidden inside. He was impressed. Just now, he came back to me with balled-up fists. “Pick a hand.” I tapped his right hand, and it was empty. He shoved his remaining fist …

New white stuff on the ground

I don’t think I’ll make it to the gym this morning. I’ve got muscle achiness from being a little too gung-ho with the weights yesterday, and if I combine that with snow shoveling and then a bunch of running, there’s no way I’ll wind up being much good company on my date tonight with my …

It’s the little things that annoy

When I first began losing weight, the first place I noticed my wardrobe “malfunctioning” was in my pants length. As I decreased my girth about the midsection, I suddenly began tripping over my cuffs with much greater frequency. Today I had to begin rolling up my sleeves. What the heck, man? I didn’t sign on …

They get weirder as they age

SAM (discussing a large project): “This is definitely not freshed.” ME: “Erm? What do you mean?” SAM: “Freshed. It means ‘cut.’” ME (not getting it): “Well, ‘fresh’ means ‘new,’ but I guess if you mean something like ‘fresh-cut flowers’…” SAM: “No! As in, ‘I freshed the wheat!’” Oh. Threshed. 😆 Those “th” sounds still sneak …

Swap package!

I got my “Defeat the Winter Doldrums” Dishcloth Swap package in the mail yesterday!    If you click on the first picture, the Flickr page has notes identifying everything that was inside. 🙂 (Well, everything except a stuffed sheep, which Gabe spotted and immediately claimed for his own.) My partner was Pati of Yarns, Needles, …

My hands are freeeeeeezing

Can’t seem to warm up. Gabe feels the same way; on our way back from the gym today, he started sighing and lamenting. “Why do we have to have winter? Why does it have to be snow?” If the snow has started by the time he wakes up from this nap, I think his poor …

Fancy pants

ERIC (cooking): “Do we have any wine?” ME: “Yes. Wait, check it first; it might be skunked.” ERIC (mock sighing): “‘Turned.’ Civilized people say ‘turned.’” Yeah, yeah. As though I didn’t positively hear his brain and gut screaming to pronounce the word “hea-thern” when we were singing in church this morning. Ironically only, of course, …

Book Run

Got out this morning and got Sam some books. 🙂 Our haul? Read more… or Read more right here… » – Magic Tree House, books 7-12 (they’re like the potato chips of kid books; finish one in a couple of bedtime reading sessions and jump right into the next) – Noodle, from the “Puppy Place” …

Shot myself in the foot

Oh, no, Sweet Gym, I cannot go to thee, For I have no sweats to put on! Knew there was a reason I needed to do laundry last night. I just felt too lump-like to drag myself downstairs to do it. Consequences… When Gabe was a baby, he used to get insanely jealous whenever I …
