But who's counting??

Jesse has been gone for approximately 183 hours--he is due back in 1.5 hours.

Today was the LONGEST day, as to be expected. But, Alex did provide me with a laugh when he was playing a computer game; he turned to me and said "Mommy, I gonna kick dis yobot's BOOTY!" Apparently he was battling a robot and thought he had the upper hand. I love that kid.

Friday's Feast


What was your first “real” job?

I worked as a dishwasher when I was 14, but that only lasted a couple of months. I assume that's a 'real' job, it had a paycheck--that was all that mattered to me.

Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity?


Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when…

It's revealed that I don't/can't keep up with current events.

Main Course
What values did your parents instill in you?

It's never too late to change.

Name 3 fads from your teenage years.

Gangsta' rap. Teen dance club nights. All basketball shoes were named after a b-ball player.

Overheard in the night

"Tomorrow is hotdog day!"
-Alex, talking to Athan from the top bunk.

"No! Tomorrow is Saturday."
-Athan, responding to Alex.

(The "tomorrow" they were debating was today, Thursday.)

Handwritten note from Ambrose.

I think it's okay--he DID say "Love" before "Hate." AND he finished the letter with a "Love Ambrose." I think he was just trying to put his frustrations of the day into words, which is great. This stems from him being upset that I had him stay in his room for his quiet time--sometimes it's tough being 5.
Ambrose attended his 1st 'school friend' birthday party this past Saturday. I stayed to help Anthony's mom with 16(!) 5-6 year olds--and also to make sure Ambrose could handle the situation. He seemed to have a blast, but later in the day Jesse asked him if he had a good time, he answered:

"Yeah, if you call getting pushed down 11 times FUN."

Oh boy.
