Take That

7_quick_takes.jpg


1. You know how I was complaining mentioning that the weather was rather awful this summer? September has made up for it. In spades. The kids have been playing in the sprinkler every afternoon this week. Which is kind of unheard of for us. It was even hotter here yesterday than it was in Dallas. Which just makes me smile. I'll take warm whenever and wherever I can get it.


2. I have a dear friend Char. She lives in a remote northern community that has been greatly impacted by the US recession (even though it's Canadian. It's a long story). Anyway. Many of the men in the town have had to leave to find work elsewhere leaving behind wives and kids. Char is starting up a group for women whose husbands are away, but doesn't know what to call it. She's asked all you lovelies to come up with some ideas. You can visit her blog and leave a suggestion or just one here in the comments. If you do visit her blog, don't mind the dust. She hasn't posted in months. Maybe if you leave a comment she might start blogging again. Stranger things have happened.

3. I realized I have not told you all what's been happening with the headaches. They've been a great deal better. Due in part to it being summer, it always seem to get better in the summer and due in part to my new best friend, Motrin. That seems to be the one pill that does it for me when all others failed.

4. This week at the library we just discovered the wonder that is Cornelius P. Mud. My kids think this is the BEST BOOK EVER. Spud laughed so hard the first time I read it I thought he was going to wet himself. So I quickly slid him off the couch and finished the story. I think I've read it 566 times since. If you have small boys with a quirky sense of humour, you gotta try this one.

5. My nephew has a new hobby. Sticking items up his nose. Someone suggested to my sister that she the nostril closed that isn't blocked and then blow into his mouth to dislodge the item. Apparently this is called a "Mother's Kiss". I call it, "some women are waaay better mothers than me". That's what pediatricians and specialized instruments are for. Do remember my sister in prayer as this is the fourth time he's lodged something up there in three weeks. The fact that she is still sane is testament to how wonderful she really is.

6. Our DVD player decided it just could not take one more moment of Bob and Larry and died this week. To Spud this was an unspeakable tragedy. So, we took ourselves off to Best Buy. Man, those things are cheap now. We got one for 40 bucks. I was thinking back to when they first came out and they were 300-400 each. It must be a sign that DVDs are going the way of VHS tapes. Now if I could just get Way Cooler to set it up, Spud will be able to live again.

7. Numb3rs starts again tomorrow night. Yee haw. A show where the geeks are cool. It just doesn't get any better than that.

Does your sister have a nasal aspirator? They're cheap - about $2 - and easy to use (like a hand-held suction pump) and whisk things out of noses FAST.

My VCR died and we have 5 trillion kids videos that we now have no way of watching - but who WANTS to buy a new VCR? So we're unsure of what to do.

Thanks Beck! I do have a bunch of nasal aspirators from when the kids were smaller (although we call them "snott suckers") and I hadn't even thought of using them. I'll have to try!

I'm super happy about Numb3rs starting tonight! Love this time of year!

Your nephew? Reminds me of my husband at that age. Only he didn't stick things up his nose - he swallowed them. Five trips to the ER for stomach pumping when he was four. Glad the headaches are a tad better, though.

Nicole said...

THAT'S a Mother's Kiss? Yikes.

Emily said...

Thanks for the book idea. I have girls, but they're nothing if not quirky!

Knittinchick said...

A mother's kiss? Urgh! That is one level of nasty that women shouldn't have to sink to!

Twoot twoot on the dvd player. Spud's life will be complete with Silly Songs now..... just leave WC with the Wonder Boys for a few evenings when they're cranky and I'm sure that you'll have that dvd player hooked up in no time at all.

CC said...

Mother's Kiss? Gross. She's a way better mother than me too!

Great news on the headaches. If only that were true for Prof X....

And I'm going to take a look at that book. Right. Now.

momofthecrazies said...

Trust me, the Mother's Kiss is WAY less gross than sitting in the ER for 5 hours with some guy that had some type of stomach virus. WAY LESS!!

Janet said...

My son had a penchant for sticking things up his nose too. I had to take him in TWICE, the little rotter.

PS- I am seriously considering getting a shirt from "Cafe Press" that says, "I Love My Computer Nerd". :-)

I vaguely remember my precious, darling little boy shoving a pony bead up his nose. It was one of those times I nearly bit my tongue off to keep from saying something snide/snarky/mean (gotta love boys, they give plenty of opportunities for practicing self control). Luckily the way ha had put it in, the hole through the bead made a tunnel to breathe, and also let me get something to pull it out (I think a crochet hook). He also hadn't shoved it incredibly far up there.

I love Numbers, it actually has this confirmed math-o-phobe interested in math. Ok, maybe not interested enough to take a class.

I will have to look at that book. We love the funny books, Mo Willems is another funny author we love (Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, Today I will Fly, My Friend is Sad).
