A bowl of hummus and baby carrots is sitting next to me. Afternoon snack. #feedthatmetabolismsosheisfastaslightening
My light blue Skullcandy headphones are on and up loud as I listen to the "Rock of Ages" soundtrack. People, it is so so good. The movie, the music, all of it.
Van is in a big cowboy phase. His scooter is his horse and he has named it Roebert. That's right, ROEbert.
Library books are all over the place. I hate the library. We load up on books and my kids don't even read them. We go and Violet runs around like a wild Indian on the war path. All that's missing is war paint and feathers. Having said that, I think she will be an Indian for Halloween. It would be appropriate. Violet, the Library Injun.
Jack has had his sword and shield taken away. He watched "Thor" and all of the sudden, he is yelling at all of us and walking around the his arms out and his chest puffed out. So until he can start being nicer to his family, he doesn't get to have his "Thor" weapons.
I have to mow the lawn tonight. It will be my 2nd time ever- the first time being a week and a half ago. Ethan just doesn't have time and I am trying to be a good wife and help him out. After my first mow, I can truly say it sucks. Pushing around that heavy beast and trying to make it look good is such a crock.
Ethan is catering an event today. Only 80 people. Yesterday he catered for 300. And he casually mentioned that he loved using the kitchen's big Hobart mixer for the mashed potatoes. It then occured to me that he peeled enough potatoes for 300 people. "How many pounds did you peel?" He replied, "80." Shocked, I asked, "Were you alone? Did anyone help you?" He said, "No. Why?" Ummm, because that is a lot of damn potatoes for one shmuck to peel. So everyone, book Ethan to cater your event. No instant, boxed "mashed potatoes". HE PEELS POTATOES FOR 300 PEOPLE!
I am struggling with the Boy Scouts of America's final decision about homosexual people not being allowed to participate in scouts. It's really making me feel like I don't want my boys to participate in scouting. How can I treat my children love and acceptance of everyone when a group they are expected to participate says that they are openly not accepting of gay people? It's very conflicting for me. What are your thoughts?
