  • What a wild storm on Sunday!  Bad weather doesn't really bother me, but there were a few minutes, sitting in the basement under the stairs, where I wondered if this one was going to be a game-changer. Fortunately, the only damage we had was to our basketball goal.  Now, how do you fix that?!

  • One of Carter's favorite snacks is apples.  He takes an apple wedge and then kind of teethes on it, spitting out little pieces.  It's the wierdest thing, but it can keep him busy for a long time.  

      • On Friday evening, I went to a girls-only wine and appetizer party at our neighbor's house.  Before I was invited, I had also signed up to make dinner that evening for a lady in my mom's group-- who is also a neighbor--who just had a baby.  The party required we make an appetizer that paired with our wine.  So by 7:00, when I left for my party, I had made an appetizer and made dinner twice.  I told Frank I was sure I'd be home by 10 because all I wanted to do was get into my pjs.  (Here is where I need to say that the clock on my phone has been a hour slow since the time change.  No matter what I did, it wouldn't set to the correct time, so I just got used to it being an hour ahead.)  Well, the party was a ton of fun, and I caught my second wind.  When I checked my phone, the clock said 10:40, so I'm thinking it's 9:40.  As I walked in the door, Frank said, "I told you that you'd be out past 10."  Apparently, the clock on my phone had finally reset itself to the correct time, and it actually was 10:40!  Oooops.
      • I cleaned out the toybox last week, and threw out everything that was broken.  Which, for us, is a lot.  Then I took another full sack down to the basement.  And you know what?  I don't think either one of them noticed!  Jacob still has 487,238 cars, so he's fine, and Carter still has Rubbermaid containers so he's fine, too.  I had to take a picture of them one afternoon:  pillows on the floor, coasters in the windows, bowls dumped over, and potholders scattered around.  Nice game, guys.

      • Our friend Wile E Coyote came to visit yesterday!
