I need to learn more

I'd like to post a photo every now and then. How do Chris and Robin make their posted pictures look like polaroids? That kid of theirs is sure a cutie. I have a cute little guy here multiple days a week that I'm sure many of you would love to see.

To change the subject. If a headache goes away when you drink coffee does it imply that it was a lack of caffeine causing it? If that is the case I'm in trouble.

Birthday Boy

Harlan's birthday is Monday. He "forgot" to take the day off so he'll be working from 6:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. He does get an hour and a half for lunch so I'll have to think about where to take him out to lunch. Most times he just comes home.

I don't like having his birthday and father's day so close together. I suppose it could be worse his birthday could be in June. Guys are hard to buy presents for. Especially if you have a limited budget and everything that he would really love is in the multiple hundreds of dollars.

I have a few ideas. A new picture collage for his office at work. Perhaps some organizational stuff for his shop. I'd love to get him a comfy recliner type chair that he could just chill in.

In any case "Happy Birthday Har!" You are one of the good ones.

Mother of the....

I am going to be the Mother of the Ring Bearer! Cam is going to be in our nephew Justin's wedding on Jun 4th and I'm excited. For him and me. I like weddings a lot! I like the decorating and such. None of it seems like work to me.

Justin called yesterday to see if Cam would do it. He initially said no but after seeing some pretty nice tuxedos online and getting the book "10 Cool Things about being a Ring Bearer" he is pretty pumped about being in the wedding.

Mom and Don are coming on the 31st. As much as decorating and wedding stuff isn't work. Cleaning and dejunqueing is a major pain. I have not even 3 weeks to accomplish something. I think maybe we'll move and not tell anybody.

It's Mother's Day!

I need to call my mom before it gets too late. It is 3 hours ahead in Michigan. I had a very nice day. We had our traditional "Mother's Day/Molly's Birthday" party at Zywicki's. I got to talk to all my kids and see most of them.

I hope all you kiddettes and kiddoes got to spend some time with your moms. Or at least thought of them.

Next month we get to celebrate all over only with a more masculine theme. It's hard to decorate the breakfast room at church for Father's Day. There are so many things that guys are into. With Mother's Day it's like duh! Flowery stuff. I need to get votes on this June decor. I have 3 tables that need something on them. The choices I've come up with are: sports such as Football, basketball, baseball. Then there are sports such as golf, and various recreational sports horse shoes, badmitton, tennis.... Then there are the fishing and hunting themes. Then there are the handyman type of stuff. Then there are the pipe, cigar and classic literature types. How about the computer guys? Camping, hiking and other outdoorsie activities. Then there are the car and truck guys. What about the musicians? What about the Starbucks and Jazz, Berkenstock wearing dads? How about the kite flying beach dudes. Surfing? Snow, water, web? Men are so multifaceted. One theme doesn't fit all dads. HELP. I need suggestions.

What a drag.

We are enduring a day without a sewer line. Yippee. It should be done by the end of the day. I'm thankful that we have such nice and experienced men doing the work. What a messy job!

Read a few blogs this a.m. Watched Wyatt. Made coffee for the plumbers. Still debating on whether or not to get my hair cut. It is lacking style in a big way. Yesterday I looked like Albert Einstein for most of the day. Only fatter.

I may give myself another couple days to think of all the options. Perhaps I'll jump on the Whipple bandwagon :o)

Rylan has another picture of a cute cat on his blog. I wonder where his cat, Sabre, is with all this activity going on downstairs and outside. I'll have to try to find him later.

Just in case you didn't know. My girls have the best husband, fiance, and boyfriend in the whole world.
