    Yes, we'll get you fitted for one of those nice self hug jackets. I hear they are all the rage this season.


    The Wolf Cub and I went for a little walk and the toe piece of my favorite t-strap sandals blew out and I was left walking barefoot. Now I know barefoot is healthy and all that but Grok didn't have to walk on blacktop asphalt in the summertime. Yikes!

    Thankfully there is a mall within a few block of here and I managed to step from shady spot to shady spot along the way. One little shop was having a buy one get one free sale on summer shoes and a buy one, second one 1/2 price sale on clothes.

    So, two dresses and two pairs of sandals later, we finally got out of there and came home. My feet are a bit sore. Grok also had better calluses.

    It is amazing how dog friendly this central area of town is. Everybody brings their dogs everywhere.

    I did a bit of online retail therapy today at Amazon. I bought one of these:Slider - The Unscooter

    plus a bunch more cocoa butter. I love that stuff.

    I also got a card came that I had hear about called Cards Against Humanity that looks like it might be a good addition to my monthly game night roster.

    It was cloudy and windy this morning but clearing off now. I think I'll take the hound out for a stroll. My feet are still feling a bit sore from hot pavement walking yesterday so just a short stroll

    Cards Against Humanity rocks. It's a so-not-right version of Apples to Apples, and free on their website if you're a DIYer.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    I like Apples to Apples, that's one of our game night favorites. Cards Against Humanity sort of sounded like the "adults only" version of that.

    If it is free that is cool, but what would you print it out on? Plus it was only 25 bucks.

    We're cheap, printed it out on card stock we had lying around. We will probably buy the already made version at some point.

    I had this whole thing about kids/birth control answered, and I must say that I'm really happy having one *very much planned* kiddo. I'm glad that I don't have more. I just think it's beyond my capacity. That being said, we are birth controlled now for certain.

    To DS's credit, he did a good job of keeping it together. He is used to having quiet, home down time with us and his lego. Unfortunately, he had three days of kindy, followed by one afternoon of child care on the third day, followed by two straight days of child care with his friend (whom he insists he no longer likes -- they do key each other up pretty badly), and then monday she came and 'interrupted his quiet time!' so it was a boisterous, freak out of a time when I wrote that.

    On Tuesday, he should have had another day of care, but we decided instead to keep him home with us in the AM, go into the office late (where he had two hours of time there and was totally mellow and did his meccano/erector sets -- he's getting quite good at building with them!), then he and I went swimming for two hours in the afternoon, and then we went to dinner and he had cartoons while I taught my last class. He was *so* happy and mellow and so well behaved.

    It pointed out to me that in addition to his two hours out of doors/active per day that is necessary to his survival, so also is quiet family time -- which he obviously hadn't had enough of.

    And, i learned something. As much as I like the little girl and taking them to the pool on Monday, it's *a lot* more fun when it's just DS and I because we have a completely different rhythm together. I suppose because we are interacting more than the two of the interacting and needing me to watch to make sure that they don't hurt each other (by accident, of course. they don't know all fo the risks of the water, even though we go over the rules every time before they get into the water.).

    So, i learned that about myself and about my son, and that's good stuff. Means I can implement even better.

    I look forward to having more teachers ready to go, too, because I want to do three nights off, two nights on per week. That would be *so* much better for all of us.

    Well I'm glad good people like you are reproducing, even if not in the droves that other people seem to be.
    And yes, not getting enough exercise and outdoor time can make anybody cranky. I know it does with me.

    I've looked up some youtubes about this scooter and it looks really good for city sidewalks, much more maneuverable. Its main competitor the Trikke has foot pads that are on a fixed vee shaped bar but on this one the foot pads can come together too. So when you ride the Trikke you can only ride with the rollerblading motion side to side. But with the Slider you can do that motion or you can do >=>=>=>=>, propelling yourself forward while not taking up the whole sidewalk and probably getting a great thigh master workout to boot.

    I just got a notice from Amazon that it is supposed to be here Monday. Can't wait. Will report back.
