Maybe, Sort of an Update?

I wish I knew what to write. I wish I could tell you all the fun things I did with my kids today, but I can't.

I can tell you I yelled, politely, at Caroline, pleading with her to stop arguing with me and do what I ask. I love her (obviously, since this blog is usually singing her praises) but sometimes that sweet, non-stop, spectacular voice and brain of hers kinda hurts my ears.

I can tell you that Eli let me know that my yelling scared him. *cringe* I politely thanked him for the vocal check and we spent the rest of the night being kind (ish) and patient (ish).

I can tell you that I got a phone call from Joey's dr.'s office and they said that his tests came back and there are no abnormalities. What tests? "Well has he been seen recently?" "Yes, by numerous people on quite a few days. What tests." "His xrays." "Ok, so he has a cast on a leg that isn't broken?" "Hmm. I don't know. Maybe I should get Steve." "Yes, get Steve please." Steve now calls me "Dear" and tells me that he doesn't know why I am being called and that the test they are referring to is Joey's xray of his hip. Not broken. See you later this week when we assess those crazy stitches, Dear.

I wish I could tell you that water is so good. It's not. It is bland and somewhat refreshing but not nearly as fun to drink as Diet Coke. I miss Charlie, who I pay 71 cents to each morning for a refill.

I can tell you that Joey's cast is ripping his diapers, so I have lovely urine filled beads spilling out of his pantlegs, all around my house. Is it disgusting that I let them dry and then I vacuumed them up? I have taped the offending area of the cast. We'll see.

I can tell you that my friend Natalie will not read this post because there are lots of words and no pictures and she is admittedly ADD.

Can I tell you how much I love the We Chirp button over on the left? I can brag about it, I didn't make it, but it is such a cheery, lovely thing, don't ya think? I have posted an etsy finds over there. I might do some here, some there, who knows.

I can tell you that having someone bring us dinner is honestly one of the nicest things that could have happened to me this year. Twice. To not worry about it was heaven. Twice. Thank you a million and two times.

Can I tell you I am loving most of the U2 album. It was leaked a few weeks ago, so I have had some time to digest it. Did you know that they are on Letterman every night this week? 3 more to go. I love them. Eli told me today U2 was his favorite group, too. Good kid.

Funny post! Do you have another friend Natalie, believe it or not, I read EVERY word! Love the We Chirp button too, it's actually on my side bar! You forgot to comment on Bachelor, I'm sure you have a few things to say about that!

Ha! I yelled at Isabel last night (not politely) and Lib told me I was scary! I asked her if that was new information..

So funny about the cast and ripped diaper - Tallulah's did the same thing to her diaper so I filed the top of the cast with a nail file until it was smooth and shorter.

I love my We Chirp button but always forget it has a function and just type in the blog address to We Chirp anyway. Duh.

I know how nice it is to have someone bring you dinner - that someone was you.
