The Twilight Zone I think I have entered the Twilight Zone. My 12 (almost 13) son is trying to give my husband fashion advice, and doing it good naturedly. He likes a girl who off-again on-again likes him (depending on her parents disposition) .. the girl I thought he liked I met tonight and she is even MORE hyper than Josh (hard to believe huh?) and cute, just hyper and flighty. Josh wants to get his potential gf a Teddy Bear and Chocolates for Valentine's Day (yes, I have entered the Twiglight Zone, he's actually thinking ahead and about someone other than himself!!!). Let's see, I have other things to blog about but they are all getting jumbled together and I really should get to bed. But i swear, my son is a TRIP!!!
Separation Anxiety OK, so I don't really have separation anxiety, but I have been separated from the girls I usually spend my lunch and breaks with. We're on the "no flex" schedule, but apparently there is flex. No flex in our start and end times, but flex in our breaks. Like tomorrow, I won't get my first break until 9AM. That's 3 HOURS on the phone before I get to eat breakfast. Aiya! Oh well, at least with separate breaks I get a chance to get on the computer instead of socialize. More later. My lunch is MUCH later in the day.

Tired, not sick and tired, just tired

I am actually tired of vacuuming. And I like vacuuming, usually. And I am about to beat my daughter. I wonder how my parents convinced me to clean my room? I wonder if I was ever as openly defiant as my daughter? The few times I remember even attempting her current attitude and behavior I had to go cut my own peach switch. And that was all it took. My mom always said I was a fast-learner. Tags: cleaning , kids , discipline

Video of Steve Irwin's death to be destroyed

This is a good thing Australian police are doing everything possible to ensure that the video tape of Steve Irwin's death never becomes public. The officers who investigated the Crocodile Hunter's death have destroyed all copies of the video tape that shows him being stabbed in the chest by a stingray barb and dying. The original copy of the video has been handed over to Terri Irwin, Steve's widow. According to the Australian press, Terri plans to destroy the original copy because no one should ever have to see it.
I'm proud of myself. I haven't been keeping as up-to-date on the checkbook as I wanted (what with both Tim and I using checks and debit cards), but I am doing pretty well AND I paid bills tonight. It's a good thing. Some things were about to get shut off. Not because we can't afford it, but because paying bills kept slipping my mind in December. December was an awfully busy (and spendy) month. And now to get back to the usual budgeted grind

BIG oops

US broadcaster CNN has apologised after mistakenly putting the name of US Senator Barack Obama as a caption on a story about Osama Bin Laden. An advertisement for a feature about the whereabouts of the al-Qaeda leader carried the caption "Where's Obama?" over images of Bin Laden. CNN has apologised for "a very bad typographical error". A spokesman for Mr Obama, a potential presidential hopeful, said he accepted that it was an innocent error. "Though I'd note that the 's' and 'b' keys aren't all that close to each other, I assume it was just an unfortunate mistake," his spokesman Tommy Vietor said.
