monday on tuesday

1:37 am - Wake to hear a small commotion downstairs as K, Middle and Youngest are preparing to leave the house to see meteor showers.

1:50 am - Am mesmerized by this playing on the television while the boys found flashlights, as how could one NOT BE?

2:08 am - I manage to tear myself away to look for "meteor showers" with the boys on the front lawn.

2:15 am - Having determined that the yard is not the best area to view "showers" we adjourn to the car.

2:17 am - Stand on mosquito infested beach, squinting past heinous lights of some kind of barge-thing, attempting to only breathe into tee shirt as beach is awash with some fetid material.


2:35 - Return to vehicle where I am accosted by Middle, who wants to show me "how blinding this flashlight is."



2:36 - A raging foot/slap/flashlight vs. camera-flash fight ensues.

2:41 am - Return home and stumble to bed.

9:07 am - K wakes me for Youngest's dental appointment.

9:45 am - Power Band applied to Youngest's top teeth. Six more weeks of silver teeth. Leave office feeling depressed.

9:47 am - Return home. Call oral surgeon: a mishap caused us to receive the bill for $3299.00 on Saturday. We DO have insurance. Heart rate slows.

9:50 am - Covering physician will write prescription for medication needed to fly to Italy.

9:55 am - Learn dishwasher, scheduled for delivery in 24 hours, will now be delivered on Saturday.

9:57 am - Accept offer of $50 gift certificate for my patience in this matter.

9:59 am - Meet with K to discuss his plans to film a barbecue competition at the end of the week.

I can't keep this up.
We ran errands, picked paint for the front door (a Benjamin Moore gray green) and then went to my mom's where K hung a mirror we gave her three years ago and fixed her ceiling fan.
Middle went to a museum, Oldest was out all day, and Youngest played on the computer.
I did laundry and cleaned the first floor.

I capped off the day with a huge burger at my pal's house and we sat and watched The Queen on her giant television, which was fun - but it's a sad movie.

I'd have to say, the foot fight might have been the highlight.

Love the foot fight shots! Your flash illuminates without washing out everything.

F was out in the garden some 10 six hours before you guys...waiting for the same meteor showers...isn't that something? But I did not join him...I was stuck in bed with one of my horrible headaches...HORRIBLE.
Foot fight looked indeed like the highlight of it all.

I loved it when the kids became old enough for the occasional foot fight. It isn't so much fun playing that game with a toddler.

You're way ahead of me, I got home last night and all I've managed is to unpack the suitcase and drink a beer today (well, there was food too but you know...
