Sunday...



Oh I'm a wreck today... I need a long... hot hot shower and loads of cleaning.
I helped my buddy move yesterday... although me and my heria were not all that much help... I could manage to ferry boxes around and set up all his geek.

We woke up to this yesterday...
and while that's all pretty 'n all... it became a blizzard of winds and nasty ass cold... Lovely day for a move.

This is the ultimate in "I Am Canadian" moving experiences...

and if you want more... an even nastier picture of trying to load the truck in the [ :: whipping snow... :: ]

Any ways... that was yesterday... today it's kinda melty out and we've a very busy day ahead.

wearing
~ stuff I pulled on when Geo woke up and declaired "it's time to go downstairs"!
~ and a nasty itch on my head... I sooooo need a shower.
planning
~ I need to find a roast... the grocery store butcher was out of the roast I wanted so I need one!
~ We're having 8 adults and 4 kids for dinner... (I'll have my kids on stick... hahaha) ok, no really... It's my dads birthday next week and we're having the family "do" at our house tonight. :D
~ so there will be much cooking... cleaning... and, hopefully, picture taking... :)
~ to let Geo watch the "Documentaries" on the LOTR TT X disk set... in hopes of properly prepping his brain for the movie... I know he will eventually get to see it... and I want desensitize his head to the notion of the bad guys and the fighting... "see, those are the people from that documentary doing the fighting..." blah blah blah... parenting boys is weird.
wishing
~ a big welcome home to my texas sugar jennfromtx
~ and a get well soon hope out to an newly-texanized boston pookish... lil'pookfreak
~ and an absolutely monsterous "Welcome" to Brooklynn... 8 lbs and 8 ozs... and is kimberly27616's new little neice... congratulations Kimberly.


Any ways... I need to zoooom. So hopefully I'll get to hang out a little later. :D

Have a wonderful Sunday.

randomness...

~ you heard about the KKK "inductee" that caught a bullet in the head from a riffle shot into the air during the ceremony... when the crowd found out it was not life threatening... they celebrated by shooting their guns in the air. Darwinism at it's absolute best.

~ if you own Cotton Denim Pants... with a gathered elastic waistband... you need to fix that. mk?

~ not a whole lot compares to the restorative powers of watching your kids laugh their heads off... [ :: like this :: ]

~ does anybody not get teary when the old man waves to the kid at the end of Home Alone?

~ there's a huge cross rib roast in my oven... hmmmm

~ it's time for taekwando... see ya. :D

Oh yeah... and I'm getting pretty freaking sick of Paris Hilton spam... have you looked at that girls face... he lips and smile... it looks like a kids drawing... I mean, fun is as fun does... but her face is over the top ick!
face

... 8-)


My dad celebrated putting another year under his belt. :D
We had the family over to out house... there was much cooking
cleaning, and fussing... and, of course, completely worth every
moment of effort. :D

Before we eat...


and, after...


The roast was outstanding... really tender and fed a lot of people. :)

That's a cross rib roast, fresh, not frozen, in the oven at 300 for 3 hours... wrapped in foil with a package of lipton's onion soup mix poured over it and a can of cream of mushroom soup... just pour it on, wrap it up and cook ... oh, and after a couple of hours of cook time, open it up and put in cut-up onions, carrots and potatoes... yum! - and don't forget to make gravy from the puddle of goo the thing is cooking in when it's done. Lift out the meet and pour all the goo into a sauce pan... heat it, whisking like mad... add 1/2 cup of water and a teaspoon of flour... whisk till you start to feel self concious of your ass going back and forth... Exceptionally yum!

alrighti... the boys are a'bed...
all bathed and storied...
and it's just ... about... time...
for the Alias tape!!!

(excited)

See you...
