That’s more like it!

As far as days go, yesterday was a pretty good one. My kids were all on their best behavior (for the most part anyway) so I was super productive. My house is spic and span (well compared to the sticky mess that it normally is), I baked a cake, and gave everyone a bath (except for Jory). That my friends is what a good day looks like in my house. To top it off, Papa Johns brought me dinner, and we watched my current favorite show: American Idol!
Now on to the more mundane chatter…
I figured out how to keep the girls diapers from disappearing from their behinds… Tee-shirts that snap at the bottom. They can’t undo the snaps, so even if they try to pull off the diaper tabbies (which they have) the diapers stay put. Sweet.
Anyone else watching the Olympics?? They are so cool! Of course I never stay up to watch the good stuff, but I’m still enjoying them nonetheless. How cool would it be to say I was the best in the world at something. Oh sure I could say something totally lame like “I fold my towels neater than anyone else in the world” but a) no one would really care, b) I couldn’t prove it because as soon as I fold a towel some little yahoo comes along behind me and unfold it for me c) they don’t give out gold medals for folding towels. So I have to live vicariously through those kids on tv that can all ski way better than I can. (considering that I don’t ski at all)

1. Gold medalist,huh? You are and don't even know it. Years ago Mr. France said if there were an Olympic sport in Laid-Back you'd have the God Medal. I think that was when you were lost in the woods at the Pinery for an hour and we found you playing with a caterpillar. You were maybe 4.
2. You're missing out if you don't include Jory in the baths. He is too. "Conserve water. Shower with a friend" (circa 1969) "Try it. You'll like it!" (Circa 1974). Don't tell him I suggested it. Don't tell Mom, either....

"God" medal, huh? Might be Freudian. "Gold" medal....
