So it was all rainy and crumb buckets out last night.
Boss man big gave me a lift to my mechanic... who, after replacing my front tires, the oil... twice... a broken dip stick (and no, vice president Chaney wasn't in my engine) and tightening various nuts bolts and belts... charged me $390 and I still have the weird noise I went in there to complain about. Ah yes... the Automobile... forcing the economy to spiral out of control for about a century now. Lovely. :D
Geo and Edward walked us through their "student lead conferences" (we had a quick dinner and then zoomed to the school). Edward... surprisingly, got all shy at the "Introduce your parents to the teacher" stage... it was terribly cute. :) I know my kids are a million miles from perfect but geeze... they are so adorable and, as far as I'm concerned, so smart.... Big reminders of that are a great way to mitigate the frustration you find at other moments in parenthood.
Today is all cloudy and chilly and ... a PD day... so I got to get up and take care of NOTHING except myself... ahhhh... bliss. :) I snuck out of the house after giving all my sleeping babies little tiny kisses that hopefully didn't wake them. I even went to 'bucks for a coffee instead of making noise (coffee) at home... :D
Makes me smile no matter what: trying to say "sharks with fricking lasers"... never fails...

// Italian news sources are reporting that, following a lower court decision in Rome, Michael Schiavo has boarded an Air Italia flight and should be on the scene yanking Pope JP II's feeding tube before lunch. Vatican sources declined comment but an unnamed source is quoted as saying they have faith that the US Congress will step up to the plate and force the assembled cardinals to reinsert the tube... From the White House Press Room, George Bush: "we want to stress that, the tube... the tube is really important. It's a big tube and it's an important tube. Johnny needs that tube... and by golly, we're going to do everything in our power to make sure that tube gets shoved right back up his... hmm? pardon... Rome? Isn't that in Ohio? Italy... you sure? oh... okay... never mind."
K... time to get busy...
see you a little later ...
