Assorted Bits of Information

Brian and I drove together this morning because we’re going to Applebee’s for dinner after work. I can’t wait. I love Applebee’s. I don’t even know why. It just seems to be the one place that Brian and I choose to go when we go out.

Brian and I were the only ones on the elevator this morning, so we were able to steal a kiss before we reached his floor. Mmmm.

Riley was sick again Friday. I was called in to pick him up. I picked up all the kids and they were able to come home early and play with their friends, outside until dinner. (Except for Riley of course.) That makes them so happy. They spent the entire weekend outside. It was so nice. The baby even had some outside time. Darby, however, was bright red by the end of the weekend. Note to self: put sunscreen on all the kids.

We revisited our “monkey with a stick” conversation. Actually this is a regular dinner time topic, I’m not sure why. Jordan is just funnier about each time it’s brought up. “If I see those teenagers again, they better watch out. They haven’t seen such and such a gun yet.” I forget which wooden gun he threatens to use on them. He has several. He still isn’t afraid of those damn teenagers, though he sounds a little sad when he notes, “they probably won’t be coming back around again.” And he said they were so rude when he pointed his bazooka at them. He says one of them was standing there exclaiming, “I’m dead! I’m dead!” I don’t think he liked them mocking him and his weapons.

It’s a funny thing about the boys. They love to play with army men and GI Joes and set up wars between the Americans and the “bad guys”. They love to play with their light sabers and Batman swords and wooden toy guns, but when it’s all said in done they are the sweetest ones in the family. Jordan loves his stuffed animals that he tucks into bed every night and Riley gets upset when one of his classmates is humiliated or made fun of. Even the girl isn’t as sensitive as the boys. In fact, she can be downright mean and I’m pretty sure she could beat the crap out of either of them. In fact, she probably has a time or two.

Speaking of the girl her birthday is coming up. Brian and I have been talking about what to get her because frankly she is not easy to buy for. I thought she might like a Gameboy because they just came out with a pink one and sometimes she uses the boys’ Gameboys. Brian asked me if I thought she actually played it and I said I wasn’t sure, but I know she watches the movies on there. Well, he thought it might be more prudent to buy her a portable DVD player than a Gameboy considering she used the Gameboy for movie viewing only. Duh, that does make more sense. I made a comment that the boys are going to be so jealous. He said that we will just tell them “that’s what she gets. That what she gets for being so picky and not playing with anything.” They are going to be so jealous.

Well, my New Year’s resolution of losing weight is actually coming along very nicely. I had high hopes to be over and done with it by the end of February, but it turns out I wasn’t that dedicated. I’m almost to the end of April and I still have 2 pounds to go. Actually it’s more like 5 because I tried on my old pants and they still don’t fit right. I can zip them, but they’re still snug and my butt looks big. So I figure I’m going to have to lose five more just to be able to fit in my old pants and look good. Oh well. Brian, on the other hand, is a weight losing fool. He’s lost over 20 pounds already. It’s crazy!!! He has more will power than I do. I don't mind though because he looks delecatable.


  • I like the stolen kiss part Mmmm!! Indeed!!

  • I wish I could lose weight. Not so much lose weight as tone up. I have flabby areas. Hate it.

    Excuse my ignorance, but what's applebys?

  • I love when kids get outside for real play time. They sound entertaining to say the least.

  • I hate this changing of the shape of the body it just doesn't seem fair. First we have to be stretched out and go through horrible pain and now it's still not over! Hmph! And Queen, seen pics don't believe you!!! :)

    Serendipity, Applebee's is a restaraunt, nothing fancy, just a nice little place to have dinner and beer. However, last night we were not so impressed. Brian says there was bad mojo.

    Truckdriver, I knew you would agree!

    Miss Jay, they are very entertaining. There is always a story to tell.
