No No No No Yes No No Yes, NO. NO. YES!!! That's A Kick Ass Header!
I knew I would be engaging in a battle of wills with Owen about the computer since I moved it to the playroom. The rule is that if he sheds one single tear about what he is doing on it, or about giving his sister a turn, the computer would be off for the remainder of the day.
On Sunday, he threw a wall eyed hissy fit of epic proportions, with screaming, flailing, and throwing things.
No computer until Wednesday.
I'm no dummy. He'll get up in the wee hours and log himself on.
So I changed the password.
I had the dumbest dream the other night:
I was in a romantically lit room, with several handsome man standing around. A couple ex boyfriends, a couple hot actors, cute guy from work, and Al.
I appraised them all before I made my selection; sort of like this:
But I got to do stuff with them.
And I picked Al.
What the fuck??
The kids have a system of letting me know who is in their good graces and who is not. One is either 'Circle' if you're on the good list, or 'Check' if you're on the shit list.
They'll randomly march up to me and tell me which one I am. I'm usually check.
Bea and Owen were playing quietly upstairs. Bea comes down without Owen.
"What is Owen doing up there?"
"He's just playing."
I head up the stairs and I hear Owen's little muffled voice:
"Bea check Sweetie. Why she check? Because she lock me in the closet."
She'd locked him in the closet.
Really cute sweet totally out to lunch dementia lady at work. Always smiling, telling everyone how pretty they are, complimenting hair and clothes. Most pleasantly confused.
I heard her swear yesterday. I was shocked. She never swears.
I was just outside her room and I heard;
I investigated, wondering what had induced the cursing.
She'd dropped her Bible.
Like my new header? And button?
Sherri made them. Go visit her. She's really cool. Like she used to be in a band and everything cool.
Sherri has been faithfully reading and commenting here (and on the old blog) for ever. Ok fine, a couple years, but in blog years, that is for ever.
Faithful readers and commenters are the bread and butter of this blogging hobby. Not much fun without them.
I got an email from a reader. She's been reading here, and myself and some other bloggers have inspired her to start her own.
I love the name of her blog:
Don't Make It Like I'm Dumb.
Please do check her out give her some love. She doesn't suck.
The elephant. I need to explain the elephant in the header and also the one that I put in my Swap package.
Later this week.
ETA: Fixed the links for my sister Sherri. She was kind enough to point out what a dumbass I am as the link to her header site was wrong.
