Benjamin says hello


The kids have been enjoying the nicer weather despite the fact that it has been a little more chilly lately. Anna doesn't just make beautiful violets on cakes (see her blog) but she also makes lovely violet rings for anyone interested. Benjamin loves them as you can see. You can also see his shirt is on inside out or perhaps you wouldn't notice. Ah, Independence......


I am going to see the movie "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" this evening with a few friends from church. Everyone is excited (who is going). My own dh does not know we are going yet and neither does one of the other mom's but......opportunity knocks. I do not know a lot about this movie except what I read in the description but have heard a lot of people talking about it. I guess I am more and more like an ostrich in the department of current events. I do catch most of the bigger events i.e. earthquakes, tornadoes and such but frankly I am happy right now to try to keep up with feeding mouths and trying to make sure there is something clean for everyone to wear the next day.


I did manage to have a few words with the Scout Master and the parent committee last night. Pass the wine please......ok, ok, I won't drink too much....... Anyway, I have consistently been peeved by the "Boy led troop" baloney when the boys don't have a clue more than half the time. I think the whole 'cry to easily' thing stands in the way of my making myself clear and when I do explain things I am usually met with blank stares as if they have never considered that boys might need some guidance from 'mature' adults. Did I mention a glass of wine? Dh did give part of a glass and then was not convinced I would sleep that night. No problem.


The grass is now getting crazy long and I am not sure if the mower will start. I will have to consult the dh on that too. I must go throw dinner together and maybe get a load or two of laundry done before we go out this evening.

Sounds waaay too familiar...It's so frustrating to deal with *dense* people especially when you know that you're about to break down any second...
