oohhh diving in...

Alrighty...

~ I have to say, there sure isn't enough judgment going on lately.

I mean, if only we would leap to more conclusions about the people we only "sort of" know, and if only we would - on the whole - be just a little quicker to judge harshly the actions of these people based on the vast, vast, complete and comprehensive information we have about their real world situations... Why then, we'd all be so much better off.

~ oh... and on a completely different topic...

It is a red hot pot of boiling uncertainty to ladle out opinions on the macro societal issues of mental health, mental health care, crime and punishment. Personally... Not guilty by reason of insanity. is really very messy. Over ripe and swarming with fruit flies for me because I don't really like the idea of mass murdering socially fucked losers only being accountable if they were of sound mind and body at the time of their totally psychotic episodes. It's one big wet contradiction in terms.

yea I know... no, I do... the bottom line keeps moving but it remains essentially the same. I'm glad I go to work and help people. I'm not expected to form the macro social process... I get to take the bus, read you guys, play with my kids and decide day to day if I want to read / hear / see the news. Thankfully, somebody else got that really shitty job.

night night..

g'night... a long day done... the kids didn't get to be till like 10 something... so they're not waking up early tomorrow.

We'll see what gives with the sugar bush.

Other than that... I did manage to get a load of stuff done today...

I'm hungry...

see ya tomorrow.

gaaa

Long night... up too late and fitful in bed... then? why morning of course... with two kids bonking me on the head saying "play".

Stumble, stumble, stumble... no really... I'm out of it today. Must have a bucket of coffee and a shower...



wearing
~ "everlast" sweat shirt / hoodie...
~ sweat pants...
planning
~ k... shower, shave, dress
~ roust Z from sleep
~ feed the rats kids
~ pile in the van and head to the sugar bush...
wishing
~ I had a brain... then I'd have at least gone to be earlier...
~ for a little sweet relief to sneak up on drsuessrox... she's so ripe (preggers) that she's about ready to burst... :D
ps. mags? I've watched very closely as my Z went through this ... twice... you'd be surprised how many people just totally understand everything you're feeling!!

Hey... It's hump day... any plans for that today? Humping I mean. :D
newavi

splash...

Well we made it there and back in one piece... u'h... the "back" part would be better described as "one wet piece"...

The sugar bush is, well here! It's a 40+ minute drive away when the traffic is light. There was no crowd and the weather was warm and toasty... (for winter, that is...)

The thing is, after you've been to a sugar bush a couple of times, it wears thin... but the kids had a blast and that's why we went right? Melting snow and ice puddles all over a big play structure, a sleigh ride through the woods to see all the sap collecting tubes... watching the sap boil in the sugar shack... (haha "sugar shack" !!!) Maple Syrup Taffy... and more wet play.

oh... NOTE: Survivor is ON TONIGHT!!! Not tomorrow
newavi

!!!

The sheer volume of sarcasm that lives here (lj) is just phenomenal... and - of course - it's been spilling over into my real world like Niagara falls...

Stopped, in traffic, at a red light...

George: "Dad? are we there yet...?"
Me: "Yup... take off your belt and hop out!"
George: "huh? DAD!!! Look out the window... theres car's everywhere!"
Me: (looking at an incredulous Z who is staring back...) "Um, George, look, I was kidding and I just wanted to say that I'm sorry I'm being all sarcastic and teasing you... It's just that you just asked me if we were there yet while we stop at this traffic light about 85 seconds after pulling out of our laneway... "

No, seriously though... I'm WAY WAY too sarcastic with the kids... they're going to get is shit all the way through high school and it's gonna be all my fault... :D

ikea - the siren of the 21st century

Alrighty...
a big bowl of salad is on the table...
the rice is ready...
a steamer of green beans (huge volume here... the kids really go for these) is waiting to be turned on...
a large slab of very dead cow is seasoned and patiently waiting, raw, on a cutting board...
the bar-b-q is jazzed, sizzling and waiting for previously mentioned cow...

Now, if IKEA would just release Z we will have dinner....
newavi

the play by play

Feels like my day has been a series of random envents strung together...

What's next? The boiz and I made brownies as I got 'em ready for bed... they get to eat some tomorrow... Z and I get to eat some tonight... with Survivor.

So for now, it's fresh coffee, a quick something else and then lj for a bit... and then Survivor.

Oh, btw... she went for a frame (picture frame) and came home with a new desk for Geo ... and a frame. :D (in my books, that's getting off lightly from IKEA).

See ya in a bit.
newavi

hummm..

Things that make you go hum....

Love the phrase "Bring it on!"

Me and my cam are sitting with Z, she on her computer (we are such geeks) relaxing with a few little projects... and a bunch of livejournal... We've had a really nice couple of days with the kids and each other...

Hey, I just loved Survivor tonight... :D

Any ways... I'm off to read about you guys for a bit... See ya.
