So do I need to talk about S-E-X more?

cash advance

Or do I need to talk about the D-I-V-O-R-C-E less?

Oh come on, I've been wanting to reference that song for a year and a half.

Go me!

So as I mentioned, today is my birthday. I guess my boys have really been saving their pennies because after a rotten day at work I picked them up and took us out to dinner. Our usual diner is being remodeled, so we took ourselves to Perkins. And the boys gave me a great little table lamp and a DVD player. Our old DVD player died in January. In May I bought a portable DVD player that I could attach to the TV for our vacation. The boys broke it two days after the 30 day warranty was I wasn't in a rush to replace it. So I guess they decided they want their movies back. Ha! Well...honestly I really don't like that the ex-husband spent that kind of money on me for them, but I can't exactly say that. I just makes me feel like I owe him something, and if there is anyone I don't want to owe anything to...well. Anyway.

Guess what I did! Oh just guess! I just programmed my very own universal remote! Don't LAUGH! I've installed toilets, repaired lawn mowers, and loaded concrete at a lumber yard, but that damn universal remote scares me. I can't believe I conquered it! I feel like such a WO-man! Go me!

Who needs Santa when you have dimples?

So do you think there is some subliminal messaging going on in the random play with the fridge magnets?
This, if no one has noticed, is my magic child. No seriously, great mind bending magic flies out of him when you least expect it. Remember when Harry accidentally set the snake on Dudley? It is totally like that. Like on Thursday I picked him up from daycare and we were dangerously close to being late for picking up his brother and traffic was horrible. I was at that place where every ounce of my being was being devoted to holding on to a long blue stream of obscenities. He was smiling and happy when I picked him up, as he usually is, and he was having a conversation with a train in the back seat. Suddenly he said "Mama!"
"Yeah, babe."
"Deedee is swinging from vines!"
Deedee is the name we've given the car.
"See those black lines? They are vines, mom!"
I can't see any black lines. I look around thinking maybe he's seeing shadows of light posts or electrical wires or something.
"Elyas, I can't see any black lines."
"Oh, that's because this is my world mom."
See? Magic.

Yes, I did.
