What scares me a lot

My children are growing up so fast.
I miss them already.
When they are around,
its so easy to
wish that they would go outside,
be quiet,
leave me alone.
But now that that beloved hour of quiet has come,
they are fast asleep in their beds,
I have a quiet house, to myself, at last...
I sit here and look at their pictures,
I miss them,
I really want to spend that quality time with them.
I wonder if I was nice enough today,
Did I teach them good things today?
Or did I set a bad example?
Do they know how much I love them,
Or do they think that I care more about the house being clean?
Its going by so fast.
Why can't somebody just shake me,
and make me pay attention to them while they are here?
All too soon,
the house will stay too clean,
too quiet,
The toothpaste lid won't be all guncky,
No muddy footprints on the bathroom sink.
and I'll be too lonely.
I miss them already.

Uncle David was cleaning out the garage of Francis, the grouchy old lady that lived next door to us when we were little. As he was cleaning, he ran across this: On the backside:
HA!!!! HA!!!!!! HHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm technologically retarded

I can't figure out how to put a link on the "link" spot, so I'll try it this way. We'll see if this works.

Bruce and I went out for our 12th anniversary on Saturday. We went to a restaurant (which is supposed to be one of those fine dining hoopla places). Anyway, the waitress that we had must have been having an off night or something. (That, or she is in need of being let go). Bruce and I were cracking up at how many things she screwed up! We really weren't upset at all; it was just so funny! First, she brought me an iced tea, instead of the water that I ordered. No big deal. Then she swore mildly as she was taking it away. Next, she took our orders and couldn't remember if what I had ordered came with sides or not, so she had to go to the back to ask. Again, not a big deal. When she brought us our meals, she didn't bring Bruce's potatoes at all. (He never got them). Then twice during our meal, she came by to drop off sides that we hadn't ordered at all. Wierd! Bruce and I were laughing our butts off! When she came with our ticket, we paid with a gift certificate. She then brought us a new card with the extra left over on it. She had shorted us by about 2 or 3 dollars. Since we were paying with a gift cert., and it was free to us anyway, we just laughed some more, and tipped her between 15% and 20% anyway. Let someone else be mad at her. We had had some good entertainment, if nothing else.
We then went to see the DaVinci Code, which we enjoyed.

Nothing in Particular

Okay, I thought I'd try this blog thing. I don't know if anyone will actually read this. I don't have much to say right now. I need to head outside to play with my children. I'm just seeing if this is going to work.
