The Finale

I drew a diagram of what I discovered yesterday morning. Jack has done this before, so I should know better. But he also has thrown my phone, pressed every button with unnecessary force, and dropped it at least a dozen times- and it somehow managed to work.

However, this was the final straw, and after a few close attempts at being ok- the phone finally gave up and is no longer.

On that note, everything on there is lost, including all your phone numbers. Please, if you will, email me your phone numbers so I can collect those again.

Thank you.

Backyard friends...not the Backyardigans..

This is David and Victoria. Every afternoon they grace us with their presence just below our deck. They don't even come for food really, cause sometimes they just like to sleep there. But I do try to give them a little something every now and then. Jack likes to sit and "quack" at them. And once they are gone he stands out on the deck with his hands palm-up, asking "Where th'ducks go?"

They are our friends.

Cruel Beauty

The face of a boy who is about to have his head shaved.

Jack has lusterous locks, he truly does. And they are beautiful, I'm often asked if I color his hair. Which I think is a stupid questions and I'm quite offended by it, but at the same time I think how lucky Jack is to have such pretty hair.
However, it grows like a weed and maintenace is a nightmare. I just went to Keish a to get his hair cut and it's not the funnest thing trying to make him sit on that booster and tie something around his nck that prevents him from using his arms. So Josh and I decided that we would give ourselves a break, not to mention Jack- cause this hair gets mega staticy and sticks to his face and ears. But it wasn't in Jack's best interest.

We wanted to give him a mohawk, just for Easter Sunday...but the kid wouldn't hold still and the buzzer was all over the place. So was hair. So we just cleaned him right off and what was left was a perfectly shaped, buzzed head. But also- what seemed to look like a cancer patient.

After a nice thorough shower, Jack was cleaned off and dressed, and he decided to grab the phone and call Grandma to tell her what we did to him.

So for those that thought I was being a baby, (DAD) I found these pictures on my work computer. These are the same conditions I was dealing with during that white out, but this is from the Tennis Club's point of view. Good thing I was cozy in my hotel, or I would have had to shovel.

I am quite disappointed in all of you.

Good Times...

One Point for whoever knows who sings this, two points for whoever can remember the pig's name. Oh and five points for whoever can tell me if Triangle Man is a man or a woman.

To Skimp, or Not to Skimp..

So these helpful little tags that people have been sending around inspired me to do the SKIMPING tag. So if you agree or disagree with any of these, please feel free to counteract my Skimps or No Skimps.

NO SKIMP- Face Lotion. Seriously, you may as well put water on your skin if you don't buy the nice stuff. And if you don't want to buy the nice stuff, use baby oil and salt as a scrub. It's good for anti-aging.

SKIMP- Cotton Rounds and Q-Tips. Honestly cotton is cotton, it's not like the cheap stuff is gonna have chunks of hay in it or's still good.

NO SKIMP- Juice. Orange particularly, but really any juice.

SKIMP- Dishes. I believe this because I get sick of my dishes really fast..and want new ones. So as long as I don't pay too much for them in the first place, it's ok. Plus Jack throws them all on the floor anyway.

NO SKIMP- Bra's. I must go with Brit on this one, a nice bra goes a LONG way. And my bra tips are as follows: Make sure it fits best at the loosest setting, because it will eventually stretch and you can tighten as it does. And never put it in the dryer. There are lost of reasons why but just take my word for it.

SKIMP- Nail Polish. I honestly think that the cheaper nail polish looks better.

NO SKIMP- Tires. As my dad says "Your life is riding on those tires."

SKIMP- Clothes. I am a true believer that expenisive clothing is fun to buy, and for the most part very durable. But if you DO buy designer stuff every now and again, it's important to balance it out by buying awesome cheap stuff at Target. That way you aren't a pompous label wearer. :)

NO SKIMP- Haircuts. Now really- I've had to learn this the hard way. But do NOT go to Great Clips for even just a TRIM because they will destroy your hair.

SKIMP- Paper Towels, now unless you are honestly scrubbing your carpet with paper towels like they do on the commercial, you will be just fine wiping up your spills with cheap paper towels.

NO SKIMP- Toilet Paper. Your delicate self needs the best and Charmin is truly what your bum deserves. Plus if you cheap toilet paper is transparently thin, you end up using more of it twice as fast anyway and have to buy more.

Okay, so that is my list. I'm sure I have more, but this computer could crash at any moment and lose this post forever. OH-

NO SKIMP- Computers.
