the battle against 2 little boys. I'm ready to get them caps and gowns and diplomas for their graduation from Aunt Ness's School of Reality Check because not only have they lost the word NO from their vocabularies, they are pleasing and thank you-ing and excuse me-ing up one side and down the other. We are on schedule. We eat at noon and nap at noon thirty, we eat supper at 5:30, play outside until 7:30, take baths and are asleep by 8:30. There have been no time outs today and they were very well behaved when we took them to The Magic House in St. Louis last night. I have pics but they're not ready for viewing yet.

I've been doing battle with Sprint today(funny how they listen when you tell them either get it straight or I'm cancelling 5 lines of service with you that I've had since God was a child.)

They were supposed to have his new phone in on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and it was a no-go. I talked to Franco, his original salesman and we came to an understanding that not ONLY will Michael's charcoal gray Sanyo Katana LX be overnighted from their Centralia store but by 1:30 it will be charged, operational and a courtesy car phone charger will be presented to him as well as an adjustment to his Sprint bill because he has been without service for 6 days and it's not good for a 2nd Lieutenant not to be able to carry on the business of the Army and checking on his sister and mom on a daily basis.
And...I finally did it.
The girls got the first 2 seasons of the show House and I have watched 2 episodes and I.am.hooked. This guy has my sense of humor and delivery and the shows are so well written that I can't figure out the endings.
Much to the dismay of my children, I now have a new quote taken from Dr. House in reply to when they ask me, "Do you think you're always right?"
I now say, "I don't, but it's kinda hard to operate on the other assumption."
Back to work. My munchkins are sleeping, the daughter is resting and all is well with the world unless I look at the negative spoon count and I just am not looking.
Thinking About Perception - Thanksgiving was truly lovely this year. Jess and Bob hosted and for the first time in twenty years I was lazy and did no cooking and little in the way of...
