For the Record…

Do you ever have days (weeks) when you  know your husband deserves better? When you know that a head cold shouldn’t keep you from doing dishes, or picking up toys, or trash, or laundry or pillows or–where was I? Right. Head cold.

Tomorrow is the science fair at school. Harrison (6), who is so completely related to me sometimes it’s scary, came up with a brilliant science fair project, all on his own. He wanted to make a volcano. One with a switch that you can turn on that will make the lava shoot out of the top. We ended up with something a little…less. He’s quite happy, and I managed to work the switch out of the equation.

(For the record, I made a volcano for my first science fair project, and there might have been a switch. That’s all I’m going to say about that right now.)

Forgive me for getting crass, but I can always tell who Rex has been hanging out with by the things he says. Since Christmas, I notice that he’ll pass gas, then look at me in this knowing way and say, “You know what that means!” Since I have heard my mother say this about five million times, yes, I know what it means. Rex obviously doesn’t, but he says it just the same.

And lastly, (because apparently my post about housework was too depressing to continue with) I am pleased to announce that June is 85% potty trained. That means that she only forgets to peep 15% of the time, and we are quite certain she will eventually stop pooping her pants.

Hope you have a great day, and if you haven’t already, BUY A T-SHIRT, SAVE A MARRIAGE. Wow, I should really get that one printed up…


  1. Kids are still making volcanos, huh?

  2. Potty training sounds like so much fun.

  3. To answer your question, “Do you ever have days (weeks) when you know your husband deserves better?”

    Yes, almost every day of my chocolate eating life. (sob)

    Good thing that most of the time he thinks I’m the cat’s meow.

    PS: Your potty training percentages look great!

  4. How about my whole marriage? (re: knowing my husband deserves better)

    Seriously, I’m positive that our entire relationship is his test in life and he’ll someday be rewarded with a straight-laced, honest to goodness Molly Mormon type wife.

    Check out my latest post as evidence. LOL!!

  5. I just want you to know that since I have like zero attention span, it takes a heckuvalot to keep my attention. Hence, you are heelarious. I nearly wet my pants with “Don’t Breastfeed”. Where have ya been all my life?

  6. Oh, my husband deserves better. Daily.

    I’m glad that Junie is so close with the potty training. Way to go!

  7. I hate science fairs. They are run by mean, old maids that have no lives.

    The end.

  8. I AM SOOOOOO PROUD OF YOU! You go, girl!

  9. Oh, I am going to start saying “you know what that means” when I fart, because it makes me laugh very, very hard!
