A Bit of This and That

I just haven't been in the mood for blogging in the past few days. Not much is new around here. Just the same old same old. Here are a couple of tidbits from the past week that I thought were mildly blog worthy.

I picked Ross, Mark and Blaine (one of my everyday extra kids) up from school on Thursday (they usually ride the bus). As we were walking out, two girls (neither one of them were the love note writers) from Mark's class ran up to him and said "Mark!!!" and hugged him. Is it him or does he just go to school with some silly, crazy girls?! Whatever it is, he could make a mint if we could bottle and sell it!

Saturday Justice had one of those miniature basketballs in the house. He was aiming for the pictures on the wall. You could tell that he was trying to hit them. Naturally, I took the ball away. He then went into the kitchen, dragged over a chair, climbed onto the stove, and dug a golf-ball that I had taken away from him a few days earlier, out of the cabinet over the stove, where I had stuffed it for the time being. "Oh, I don't think so!" I said, and took that away too. Well, undaunted, he goes into my bedroom and got out his father's prayer rock, with every intention, I'm sure, to knock down / break my pictures on the living room wall. Drat him!
