Pretend that it's Tuesday. Except tomorrow is still Friday....

Did I actually say I would be back tomorrow on Monday?
Silly me.
I have no good excuse.
I am a bit of a creature of habit...
and not having a computer at home for over a month...
I have to remind myself I can actually use the computer now...
and I've sort of fallen into a pathetic little morning routine that involves coffee
and watching the dvr'd reality shows that Colin refuses to watch with me...
in my pjs.
Now I'm trying to work back into the coffee/computer routine...
or at least the blog routine.
some of the computer time can just end.
seriously...not necessary.

I've not had a ton to blog about...
it's been rainy...
and we've been inside.
I shall blame the rain for my inability to prioritize what I should do around the house....
like for instance....
the house is a pit of disaster?
How about I WASH and sort the legos.
all 750 million of them.
Logic. Where has mine gone?
Also please note that in my mind this would just take a minute...
2 hours later...
with a kitchen table full of legos...
and nothing to PUT the freshly WASHED and sorted legos in...
I decided, this was not my best idea.
(and who washes legos anyway?!?)

Legos though are in fact fabulous.
One of the few "toys" I do not regret buying the boys
they still play with them.
They better still play with them
they're all clean now...

It feels so good to be baaaaaaaaaaaaack...My husband fixed the computer.
and then.
I was sick.
but now I'm better.
and my computer is too.
and things are happy.

I sorted through over 1000 photos today.
posted some,
straight from the camera,
photos on facebook...
and that pretty much was my day,
leaving no time for a proper blog post.

I have a vegetarian curry cooking...
and some brown rice.
(and some brownies because I'm already anticipating the protests over the meatless meal)
I'll be back tomorrow.

Happy Monday friends.

well. alrighty then...

almost a month later.
and the computer is

colin is in the process of "fixing" it.
shouldn't be much longer now...

so I'm online sporadically.
missing my blog reading.
and facebooking.
and blogging.

i figured while jared was at soccer,
and colin and jack at the ballfield,
i'd just stop in and say hi.

we got back from our 10 day whirlwind tour of the midwest on sunday.
munster (indiana) for a wedding.
then to the lake for a few days.
and to racine for the race and to see my folks/gabby/mike/evan.

(a few) highlights:
seeing our family(s) and uncle mikes (who we like to pretend is ours as well)
evansen's superstar blonde curls (he has the BEST hair ever)
watching jack banana fish. he loved it. such the fisherman.
my husband driving the boat. oh. so. sexy.
watching the boys tube.
jared water skiing and driving the waverunner sans an adult.
the harley museum (like i didn't want one before. can a harley be a need?!)
the milwaukee art museum (banana wanted to see a "real" art museum)
meeting becky (small shout out)
cheese curds at the yardarm (yUm)
while i'm on a food kick Racine pizza. seriously. good. and really un-gluten free...
watching my boys run the race (minus jack he helped w/ the video-ing)
listening to ev say "Dack"(jack)...unfortunately not so much AuntE.
drawing together in the car. (draw and the pass to the next person to add to...very fun. try it)
the fart machine. funny.
my dads breakfast burritos. i'd like another now. please. (darn it. i'm back on food)
chicago radio stations. getting to hear the gufs. on the radio.

the car ride home. how can 3 boys be fantastic the entire trip and then make me want to jump from a moving vehicle during the trip home. so. naughty.
the mosquitoes. blood sucking bastards. hate them. (don't worry. we have them here too.)
not getting to see some friends.
feeling like we didn't have enough time any one place.
Colin crashing roxy. aka the truck. (we won't dwell on this one. k?)

i took SOooo many photos.
which of course i can't show you until someone...i won't mention any names...fixes the computer.
it will be fabulous to relive my vacay photos.
but for now.
pretend you can see us boating. running. and obviously eating.
i'm the fat one with the ridiculously long hair...

and a story.
without a photo.

i might have slammed jack's foot in the truck door the other day.
it hurt.
i felt horrible.
i apologized.
he said. still crying a little...
"it's ok. i forgive you."
a few seconds later.
"you know how when you break a mirror, and you have seven years of bad luck? well. there should be something like that for people that slam their child's foot in the door."

hopefully it won't be a month before i'm back.
