Random Update

Hello, friends!
Lots going on as usual.
Here's a quick random update of all the business as of late.

* This past weekend was anything but uneventful.
Two of our little guys were grounded.
Like no watching television PERIOD,
no playing outside PERIOD,
no hanging out with friends PERIOD.
Do children realize that when they are grounded,
the parents are grounded as well?!
Not only can we not take the kids to do anything fun,
although we did go out for a family lunch after Trysten's basketball game,
but we have to deal with their attitudes when they are reminded of their confinement.
To top it off, when you are in a divorce situation,
the child who is grounded tries to call the "other parent" for sympathy.
So, we let them do it.
Twice.
Now, this is not to say the whole weekend was a bust.
To the contrary.
It made for a lot of family time.
A lot of which was spent on the patio playing UNO,
watching old home videos, talking about vacations we've taken and lots of memories of Pop.
Lots of memories of Pop.
Sunday was a different story because I was under the weather.
I was in bed ALL day Sunday
while Ryan did laundry, wrangled the clowns and cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner.
And that was our weekend.
I'm praying our 2 guys have learned their lesson
because I don't want to be grounded anymore.

* Speaking of being in bed all day Sunday,
I watched a lot of trash TV.
A lot.
I watched parts 1 and 2 of the whole Kim Kardashian's wedding.
Wow.
That was a huge undertaking.
I also watched part 1 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion.
Did yáll see that mess?
It was out of control.
Teresea has been blacklisted out of the family.
Why?
Because she's crazy.
I could go on, but I won't.

* See this little guy:
I love him.
And he loves school.
Look at him writing word problems for me to solve.
Makes a mama happy.
Speaking of school,
I transferred him to where I'm teaching all year.
We are only 2 doors apart,
and I cannot tell you how fun it is to see him every day.
It doesn't get much better.

Are yáll still here?
I'll be back with more later, but for now, it's Sudafed and bed time!
Happy Monday!

So true about the parents being grounded too!! Good for you thought - following through with it. So many parents don't and that's what's wrong with today's kids!

Is Carter about to play beer pong?

Just sayin'....... :)

Grounded.. always sucked. I bet that is hard with the divorce. I can imagine they threaten to go live with the other parent. Heck, I probably would have.
Looks like Carter is into cup stacking? I saw a kid on Extreme Home Makeover who was into that.
Also, I need to catch up on my trash TV. Cali put me behind! I did watch the wedding though and I must say.. disgusting.
Their whole lives are staged for TV.
