Those Eyes

How I love all three colors at the same time.


Or maybe this one. Never ever though I would be obsessed with strollers.

A plea for good (tip) karma..

May the gratuity gods be gracious this week. Let a hotel shuttle full of high rollers come in and drop some serious "scarilla" so that we might acquire a jogging stroller for the upcoming 5k. Oh, and for our morning walks to school for the kiddos. After all they are like 30% off.

Daddy Day Care Redux

Home. Alone. With five humans under the age of 10.

Behest my brethren from my bachelor days. Nay, have I been captured by life and its trappings of off spring. Though I pronounced that I should never hang my bugle in an invisible baldrick and that I should live as a bachelor, I say now, that all seasons shall pass. For I am the Master of my brood and bride and betwixt it all I demanded that she go and travail against the beserkers from the Northern Dalles this day and bring back fruitful bounty. For I shall remain and instruct the flock in skills of swordsmanship. A fortnight early for lessons of the blade you say. I beseech you to fear these mongrels.

So far so good. No injuries, hurt feelings, or potty accidents.

Lazy Wednesday

It is beyond good times at the house. A lazy rainy day full of nothing to do. Snuggly babies and big kiddos enveloped in our chocolate brown magic couch sloth. Breakfast was a can of spaghetti-o's and a chocolate chip cookie. Why? Because it was there. No TV. Just each other. If we only had a pool like the Willies we would be set.

No paparazzi please. The only pic the wife would let me take/post this morning,

Book worm and snuggle buddy.

Its always easy being cheesy.

My Lovely

She is so beautiful in candle light.

Dare I say I love it when she blows.

One of those days

You ever have one of those days. One step forward, two steps back. I blame it on the rain and lack of preparation.

The stalemate has ended...

I blinked first. I was having an unspoken no blog stare down with F5. I finally cracked and decided to post.

We are getting settled in the new house. Too settled apparently. H's bathroom is still not finished. The yard needs to be mowed. The garage cleaned out. The dog days of summer have hit. I love the fact that we are much more comfortable here and have the room we need to live and to have visitors.

I know how much life has changed when all I want for X-mas is a B.O.B. double jogging stroller. The man cub is growing out of his car seat already and the other double doesn't handle the parts of our walk that are not paved that we come across when we get lost in our hood.

My gangsta wife had a great birthday. I must say that I shopped for her over a month and a half. It was much easier to siphon off cash without her noticing and not scrambling last minute. It will be a challenge to top it next year but I have a few ideas already.

Ok...I think I am back. Simple post today but I was hoping this was like riding a bicycle.
