The up hill battle called..

This morning Remington comes to me and says,
I don't have any clean socks
Did you check your basket?
Yes I don't have any. Can I wear a pair of yours?
I guess so.
I probably should have taken a hint when I say him wearing a pair of his brothers socks over the weekend and then yesterday when he had a pair of soccer socks on for church. I didn't so today he wore a pair of my socks. I'm sure I just did laundry yesterday last week. As I was sorting laundry having a de-ja-vu feeling I realised. Laundry is like those stair machines. You keep climbing never getting any where sometimes falling behind and climbing like crazy to catch up. Wanting to just give up but you can't because you know what will happen if you do. You keep climbing never getting anywhere. Never an end in sight.
I hope you all have a happy Monday! Me I'll be under a pile of clothes looking for a way out!

Someday I would like to be able to send my husband to a NFL game. He has never been to one and I would love to be able to do it. He LOVES the Steelers so that is where I am going to send him. He would also like to go to a NHL game. I could kill 2 birds with one stone because Pittsburgh has a hockey team too. I'm going to have to save a little bit of money to get this done, may be by his 40th birthday. This gives me 4 years to save.

Silly kid stories


Coleton has had a pretty bad cough so I took him into the Doctor. While there he asked if he was going to have to get a shot. I told not today but before kindergarten starts in the fall we'd have to go back and get his shots for school. He looked at me and I told him I was sorry but everyone who goes to school has to get shots. He was quiet for a minute then looked at me again and said "I don't want to go to Kindergarten"


The boys were watching a movie and I was getting ready for work. They asked if I would make them some popcorn. I went in the kitchen and put a bag in the microwave. (yes I was being lazy) Gage walked into the kitchen and asked what I was doing. I told him I was making popcorn he says...
"oh for your kids?"


A friend of Ryan's at work gave him a box of whoppers that was decorated like a reindeer. There was a cute little poem about reindeer and the surprises that they leave behind. They had cut out a little hole in the back of the box so you could get the whoppers out. We asked the kids if they wanted to try a reindeer poop. Gage got a funny look on his face and when he tried it he smiled big and said "I love reindeer poop!"
