The husband's ugly green sled

This is the big project that he worked months on... it's a Kawasaki Invader that he made into a race sled. He hasn't raced it yet though.

Time flies when you are having fun

Demon #1 had an orthodontist appointment at 9:30 this morning... got outta there at 10:00 and we headed to WalMart.

I let her skip school the rest of the day because
  1. I am Mom and I have the power.
  2. She's getting close to straight A's
  3. It was a Taryn & Mom day

I called the husband to tell him we were going... he told me to remember peanut butter & bread. Ok.

So we get to Walmart at about 10:30 and start shopping.

We get done with shopping and head home... I call the husband on the way home.

Him- "Where are you?"
Me- "Driving."
Him- "Where from?"
Me- "Walmart."
Him- "Just now?"
Me- "Yeah, why?"
Him- "Do we have any money left?"
Me- "Yeah, why?"

I look at the clock.... it's after 12:00!!! We spent an hour and 1/2 in Walmart shopping! I didn't even notice until he said something!

Things that make you go "Yeaaaaaaa!!!"

Lucky Charms was on sale at the grocery store yesterday... 3 for $6!!! Now thats something to get excited about. We are talking orgasmic excited. Yes, it's that exciting. It's Lucky Charms! Geez, don't you understand?

If you know me, you know that I love my Lucky Charms. It's one of the only cereals I'll eat. I love Peanut Butter Crunch, but it tears up the roof of my mouth so I don't eat it. I used to love Honey Nut Corn Flakes, but like many products that I fall in love with, they quit making it. I have now resorted to Honey Nut Chex. They are not Corn Flakes, but they'll do.

If they ever quit making Lucky Charms.... we don't want to go there.

No, seriously, we don't.

All GM cereals were on sale, so Demon #1 got her favorite - Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

See? I'm not a bad mom - I think of my kids.


Good Morning

It's 5:30 in the fricken morning. One of the downsides of the husband getting up at 2am is the husband gets up at 2am.

Dog starts whining, she has to go outside.

Dog comes in, jumps in bed. When the hell did she get so big?

"Honey, why are my shirts folded?"
"I ran out of hangers"

Kiss on the cheek and away he goes... driving the big truck into the sunrise.

There's no sunrise at 3am. But there is a huge feeling of being upset pissed off when you are lying there in bed realizing that you are in no way going to fall back to sleep.

So upstairs I go to see if the internet functions at 3am. It does, did you know that? People are actually awake at 3am, other than me! Ok, she doesn't count. She lives in the UK. But alas! I hear a voice coming from the end of the hallway....

"Mom, what time is it?"
"in the morning?"

Demon #2 proceeds to get up, get dressed and go downstairs. So she's awake now, too. Great. Crabby kid alert at 6pm tonight!

Oh... and the dogs are now sleeping on my bed.
