Another day in paradise

I learned something recently. Life goes on!

Yeah... it's pretty much trotting right along as I sit here slumped in my super-oversized recliner trying and trying to feel better. That dratted virus is taking quite a while to rid itself of my body. One of the benefits of Mr Nice Guy having shoulder surgery was that we had to go shopping for a big ol' chair that he could LIVE in for about four weeks. And he did. He must have spent enough time in it, because now I always get to use it and he's stuck on the uncomfortable couch with the kids *wicked laughter*. I can sit in it sideways, and blog till the cows come home. Which, quite obviously I haven't been doing any of recently. Sorry 'bout all that.

Let's see, news updates? They aren't all that exciting really. We did lose a turkey, apparently from natural causes. If being a thirty pound turkey is natural, anyway. I learned that my daughter can play her brother's recorder pretty well. I even recognized the tune. I just didn't know she had so much talent - from her NOSE. Yeah. Sick. Who's kid would play the recorder with her NOSE?

Not mine. I'm just glad she didn't pick up the trombone.

This sort of sounds like a Not Me! Monday post... guess I missed doing one this week. I didn't, however, miss the one where my friend Beth, from Outnumbered, Three to One, writes all about her pizza leftovers "NOT" getting stored in her bra... and then the subsequent follow-up blog by her sweet, loving son (my new favorite read) on Outsmarted: By One Woman, where he calls everything she says a big lie and mocks her publicly. We know she's telling the truth though. None of us has EVER dropped pizza toppings into our undergarments... or talked on the phone in the bathroom either, for that matter. Right? If you have nothing better to do, and you know you don't, you gotta check out those two blogs. Caution: Funny stuff.

I am beginning to wonder if all this rambling is going anywhere. Since it isn't, and we both know it already, I want to throw another one at you, courtesy of my kids. This is an actual text message I got from my 10 yr old girl reporting on her conversation with my 8 yr old boy while I was away from home one day.

"Mom, I called B a molecule, he called me a particle, I called him an atom, he called me an eve."
For the record: I want to clarify that I do NOT condone name-calling in my home. Unless it's downright hysterical or scientific in nature.

Ahh... life goes on. One of these days, I'm gonna catch up with it! In the meanwhile, keep yer bellies laughing. Between that and some good old fashioned prayer, it makes every day worth waking up!
"Atom and Eve"
