Re: Week... whatever. :)

My task for the next few days is to weed the front garden beds. They look bad!


I've been working on that too. A couple of weeks ago, I hired a friend of my DD's from high school (whom I knew needed a few bucks) to come over and [more]

Re: Speaking of gaping maws

I think some of this is just me having only girls for the past 7 years or so. DS moved into the dorms Freshman year, and even the year of BoyInTheBasementAfterGraduation - he dined out most of the time. So I've forgotten most of my teen-boy survival [more]

Re: Speaking of gaping maws

I'll try bananas - I bought one bunch the other day, but so far, just DH has eaten any. They don't seem to have any favorite fruits. I'll keep trying.

Cereal- they don't quite understand breakfast cereal. I had been stocking up in [more]

Re: You need $100K a year, at least?

Depends on where you live. A two bedroom apartment could easily run more than $2,200 around here. $1,500 a month for private school is about right.

Location, location, location!

Around my neck of the woods, you can rent a [more]

Re: Speaking of gaping maws

DH is highly amused by this all.

I mentioned that DS never ate like that - he reminded me that DS wasn't exactly athletic. I asked him (Capt of the wrestling team, super athletic in high school) if he ever ate like that - he reminded me he [more]

Speaking of gaping maws

OMG! Teenaged boys!

Today I walked in the dining room and found CS17 sitting in front of a plate of 3 hot dogs and a huge turkey sandwich! Plus chips and my last Arizona tea. I was so shocked I didn't even notice what CS14 was eating beside [more]

Re: Dressing up -- shoes

I'll second the recommendation for Munro Americans! I have a pair of low heeled pumps that I've used for years - and they are my go to shoes for Mary Kay Seminar which is held in the Dallas convention center - I walk for miles in them for several [more]

Re: Dressing up

A lot depends on your definition of "a fortune". I'll spend $100ish on a good quality dress that I know is classic enough I can wear it for years. I'll spend much more on a formal gown that I know will get multiple years use (my company has [more]

Re: That thing I'm working on

I'd be amazed and amused at the husband shopping/announcing his finds.

Sidebar a little:

We've been working out new routines since our two are out of the house - the CKs (Chinese Kids) do help with things, but I don't put as many [more]

Shifting gears

The Chinese boys have arrived. 17 & almost 14. One junior, and one unexpected freshman - I thought he'd be older.

OMG. So different than the girls. Gaping maws that are going to be a huge challenge to keep fed! Sports buffs - both fans [more]

Mini progress report

So we've been progressing on the basement where we're adding a bathroom and laundry room. That's good.

But 2 weeks ago, we looked at the kitchen floor and decided those 5yr guarantee tiles just weren't going to last any longer than the 20 [more]

Re: One of each

I think LilMiss' schedule the first year of high school was ballet 4x a week, plus 4 art classes after school, I think at least 2 of those days the two overlapped and she'd have ballet followed by art and wouldn't get home until about 8:30 or 9pm [more]

Not quite as dramatic, but we've been having bee stories around here lately too. MrHunzi went out to mow the lawn the other day, and decided to mow part of the jungle that used to be my vegetable garden before the torrential rains of June turned it [more]

Re: Office

I had a teen come in and help me the other day in my office - pulled out the bins and told her - I want to get rid of most of this - so if I'm dithering about something, your job is to say - You don't need it!
