Make Mine Medium Rare...

(one of those sweet moments when the boys are working together...the older boy was showing the younger one how to fly a paper airplane. Isn't that some rite of passage?)

So - the week. The week is over, and now we have to start a new one. I don't think I am ready yet. Recovering from doing all of that yucky, stressful paperwork and telling my boss that he owed thousands of dollars more than he expected took quite the toll on me. For four days or so, I tried in vain to get my back to loosen up - to no avail. At one point I thought I had lung cancer...but no. I don't. But I am scared of these damn smokes again - so THAT's a positive thing!

Got to check out a new group last night, a really, really GOOD group. I love bands that are just starting out because they work so hard to make the audience happy. I love watching them try new things to see what kind of response they will get. It is the epitome of being an artist - expressing oneself authentically, and measuring the effect that it has on other people. Bonus was that the lead guitarist and vocalist is a new chef in the kitchen. I have such a new found respect for him - he never once led me to believe that he is as talented as it turns out he is. THAT is modesty, my friends.

We have made a new deal in our house:
Jerry is in charge of all of the cooking, and I will do all of the cleaning up. I LOVE this deal.

Except, I don't want to do the cleaning either.

Have a good Sunday, all!

Please.

Jeff and I have a similar (unspoken) deal. He cooks (simply because he can and I can't!) and I clean. I'm happy with the trade-off. It's not for everyone, but it works for us. :)

I love the photo!

How the hell did you get Jerry to agree to be in charge of all the cooking??? You must tell me so I can use it on Chris!!!

Miss you!

I would gleefully clean up everything ALL the time if I could only avoid that dreaded task of cooking. Unfortunately that is not going to happen anytime soon in this household. Yay for take-out!! Hope you have a good weekend.

Marla: Thank you for validating my feelings - I honestly have wondered if I was not given a gene that other wives have. Turns out, I might be sorta normal after all! ;)

Sarah: Oh sweetie, it would be my pleasure. And I would love to have a tutorial from you on how you capture children so very well. If you WANT to share your secrets, that is!
;)

Katya: Must be the secret to your success...I really like that Jeff. Unspoken arrangements?! Wow...he is a smart man! Thank you for liking my photo - as always, high praise coming from you. :)

Brenda: Keep buying him new equipment and telling him that he must try it out several times to make sure he is doing it correctly. Like what he is doing for you TODAY for instance! (enjoy the roasts, my dear!)

Becca: YAYYYY for take out. You are a girl after my very own heart!!! You have a great weekend too, my dear.
