I hope all you dads had great day yesterday. Moms, I hope your children’s father and your own father had a great day.
Even all of you who fill the fatherly role.
Hope you were able to play your “Dad Card” to get out any unwanted duties. Now we’re back to real life so it’s back to working and cooking and cleaning and jumping on trampolines and putting kids to bed and doing whatever it is you do as Dad.
I was talking to a boy on the playground last week at school. He told me, “There’s a June bug over there” and pointed to the ground in the corner of an asphalted area.
I replied, “Oh, show me.”
“I stomped on it.” He explained. “It’s not June, yet.”
Had that bug just waited one more day, he would have been in the correct month and would have survived. Though I know that boy made a many people happy. To some, the only good June bug is a dead June bug.
In case you’re counting, there are 210 days until Christmas!
You’re probably not counting, though. Neither am I.
But just like Christmas Eve, not a creature is stirring. The boys are asleep with visions of God knows what dancing in their dreams. The parrot is covered and quiet (until she screeches for a treat at 9:30). With it so peaceful, I leave you these good reads for this evening. Or morning for those of you on the other side.
Sorry about that. My caps lock was on. Here’s our forecast for the rest of day, tonight, and tomorrow morning.
This is what Friday’s forecast looked like.

This is one of my favorite posts of the week. I get to share what you shared with us. The perk is when others then share what I wrote. A huge thank you to all those who have shared my writing. It never goes unnoticed and is always appreciated.
17 weeks seems such a small amount of time. Especially when you compare it to the 35 weeks we have left until Christmas. However, this time next week will be the last day of April. Mother Nature, being the fickle beast she is, decided to give us 2 inches of snow last night. It looks more like Christmas a week after Easter than it did on Christmas! Go home Mother Nature, you’re drunk.
I found some of these by searching the tag #atozchallenge in my reader. I found some new blogs to follow. Hope you do to!

Hang in there Lent folks, this is your last week of abstinence.
Warm weather is upon us. The sun is shining and the winds are calm. Friday’s rain made the snow go all gone. The boys want to go out to play, but mean old dad is making them clean/tidy up their rooms in order to gather up all their dirty laundry so that I can wash. They mooed about it, but I gave them the option of playing outside or wearing dirty clothes to school. Smart boys chose to gather laundry and tidy their room first. Mark one in the win column for dad!
I was in the shower with the 5 year old yesterday. I needed to shave and he was dirty so we joined forces. At the end of it we were standing in ankle deep water from Bang having put the plug in the drain. I started stomping and splashing. He laughed and splashed with me. The curtain was closed so I thought it was safe. But then DW comes busting through the door like she was a one woman SWAT team. Then I heard the smoke detectors blaring. I thought for sure I was going to have to flee a burning house wrapped in a towel. Turns out the bathroom floor somehow got flooded and water was pouring from the smoke detector on the ceiling directly below the new pool room formerly known as the bathroom. The water shorted the detector and set it off. Since all three detectors are wired together they were all blaring. Because they were blaring, the bird was squawking. DW’s blood pressure soared. We have a guy coming to find out why our pool bathroom decided to empty into the floor below.
And in case you missed it last week, we took a short 3 day vacation to do some visiting and touring. You can catch the highlight video of friends, family, a science museum and animal rescue facility here.
Good Morning, Sunday! I hope everyone had a good night’s sleep. Good luck catching that lost hour for those of you who turned your clocks ahead. Crash was up at 6:30 (really 5:30 before the clocks the changed). Bang was up at 7 (really 6 before the time change). Fortunately, this is our March Break so we don’t have school all week. Lots of time for them to get caught up. Or be so tired and cranky that I’ll fear for their survival.
