I Never Could Get the Hang of Saturdays

"Share your knowledge,
It's a way to achieve immortality"
The Dalai Lama

Yesterday Hunter and I cleaned the house...ok, not the whole house, but the downstairs at least. We vacuumed, swept, and washed the floors, then finished the laundry. Hunter insisted on helping with every step, he poured the soap into the washer, added a sheet to the dryer and pushed the button, he wiped the toilet with me, washed the floor with me, wiped the cupboards and appliances down, AND he insisted on vacuuming all by himself.

Where we fight our parents our in the streets
To find who's right and wrong"
Elton John - Bennie and the Jets

Today was D's first Flag Football game, and he got his Team shirt, and team photo, which took so long that we got started about 45 minutes later than we should've, it made for a long morning.
Afterwards we came home, had a snack and then a nap...which went surprisingly smoothly.

Is never enough, you better seek out
Another road 'cause this one has
Ended abrupt, say hello to heaven

I got pokie's gift in the mail today, and I excited!
Rollercoaster Tycoon Delux! I can't wait to start used to be one of my fav games growing up, and since I have a bit of spare time on my hands, and need something that I can do that demands I do it without children, I thought I'd make up a list of gift ideas (next month being my b-day and all) at

I'd love to go see a movie tonight, even if it's by myself...probly won't happen tho

You got to take the time.
You'll miss what really matters,
You'll miss all the signs
Amanda Marshall - I'll Be Okay

Our phone bill has been a bit ungainly lately, so we may be switching to just cell phones for local and making use of an internet phone for L/D, and just keeping us hooked up with the internet. Unfortunately there's only one provider for our area, which is effing stupid.

Taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven
Will you ever win"
Fleetwood Mac - Rhiannon

There's something in our chimney. It's flaps and flutters every once and a while, and makes me wonder if it hasn't made a home in there. At first we thought it was stuck, but it would be making more noise I now I think it's made a home in there. How does one flush out something from a chimney without killing it with smoke from a fire? I don't want to harm it, I just want it to move on.

Where the revelations run amok
Ladies and gentlemen"

Just put a little smoke up the chimney?

I think I'm just going to call the landlord and let hi m figure out the best course of action...cause Chance wants to climb out on the roof himself to see if he can spook it out, and I'm afraid if we try to smoke it out it'll die and stink up the place
