Things I Learned This Past Weekend

The attitude of a 10-year-old girl increases exponentially with the size of the cast on her leg.

The bumper sticker says, "It's Never OK To Hit A Child," but I maintain that it's OK to really want to.

A glass of wine and a cigarette enjoyed out on the deck will keep you from lunging for the throat of a 10-year-old child.

There is nothing funny about bathing a child with a cast on their leg. Someday I may change my mind and find something humorous to write about the incident. I doubt it.

The Spanish teacher assigned a project for Spanish class due today (Monday). I was informed Sunday afternoon. #1 Son had known about it for almost two weeks.

It is almost impossible to create a poster "promoting foreign languages" with no further instruction.

My son has no creative ideas for last minute projects.

The poster project was worth a test grade.

My son has no sense of urgency.

When in doubt, go with what you know and love – food.

By combining our "talents," my son and I are able to slap together a poster that says, "Foreign Languages...Get a Taste of Something Different" in about an hour and a half.

About Me: I'm the mom of three: #1 Son (20), The Princess of Wails (17) and their baby brother - The Baby (6). I was a grad-student working on an MA in history until we were surprised - I mean blessed - with The Baby. I'll get back to it...someday (the thesis, not the kid - I have no choice concerning the kid). I am one of only a few people I went to school with who is actually using their history degree in my career (and to think my Father called it Basket-weaving!). I live a very hectic life amongst massive clutter. I call it a good day if we have managed to get home at night without losing one of the kids (no matter how hard I try!). Friends say I have a humorous take on life's happenings. The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying.
