You'll never guess in a million years what Ashley and her friend, Danielle are dressing up as. It's a pretty funny sight. (Can you believe I've kept it a secret this long?) (Yes, I know that some of you already know, but don't ruin it for everyone else in the comments section.) More later...

You're in a mid life crisis
Your ears aren't what they once were and you have resorted to doing online hearing tests.
The highest pitched ultrasonic mosquito ringtone that I can hear is 12kHz
|Find out which ringtones you can hear!|
So according to the above results (an idea from Crazy Busy and Lovin It), my suspicions have been confirmed. My son is not the only one who can't hear.
How is your hearing?

I was all set to sit down and post some really cute pictures from Ryan Cub Scout field trip this morning when, Poof!, they just disapeared. I downloaded them from my camera and when I went to look at them, the folder was empty. Then I went back to my camera and found that Picasa had deleted them from there, too. What's even worse is that I had taken a picture for another mom of her son holding the American flag during their opening ceremony and now I have no picture to email to her. So now what you get is some serious ranting of the problem with some parents these days...
Last night I spent three hours shooting out emails to everyone that had signed up to help out with the carnival for Ryan's school that Teri and I are chairing. I must have sent out emails to a couple of hundred parents and can you believe that I've only gotten responses from 3 parents so far? Sad. I hope they don't think we're giving up easily, because they will get a phone call - or maybe a few hundred phone calls. Hopefully the responses will start flooding in once the weekend is over.
On a totally different subject, the kids have their Halloween costumes all picked out and ready to go. They are really excited. Ryan is going to be a Chicago Bears football player and Ashley and her friend, Danielle are going as ketchup and mustard. It was quite hilarious watching them try them on in the store bathroom last week. The costumes are bigger than they are. Now if we could just find the time to head over to Apple Blossom Farm to get our pumpkins.
Well, I'm off to finish cleaning my house. Break's over.

Sometimes, you just need to have a day that flies by. Today has been like that. This morning I had three little ones here to keep me busy - Chloe, Katelyn (22 mo, who my friend Jennie usually watches) and Luke (who is now almost 3 months old and growing like a weed).
Luke has now been picked up and it's just me and the girls. Days like today remind me of why I miss Cecelia so much. Her and Chloe use to have so much fun together and it kept me on somewhat of a schedule during the day. How is it possible to get more accomplished on a day where you have 3 kids versus a day with just one? Granted I pretty much fall into bed and am instantly asleep at the end of the day - sometimes just barely staying awake until my own kids are in bed.
So, now it's my mission to find one more full time little girl like Katelyn so Chloe can have a playmate during the day. (Would also mean extra money in my pocket, too.)

Ryan never ceases to make me laugh. Tonight when I was putting him to bed, he went on a tangent about what he wants Santa to bring him for Christmas this year. He said that he's "been wanting a Chicago Bear's football helmet just like the one (his friend) Aizik has for a long, long, long, long, super long time now. Ever since I was six years old!" He's seven right now. I'm still laughing.

Number of corn stalks surrounding our neighborhood: too many to count
Idiots using the camera on their cell phone while driving: 1
I guess that's what you get when you move out to a neighborhood in the middle of farm country.

This is why I serve frozen, canned and take out for meals. I tried to make Cat's chicken noodle soup since Ashley isn't feeling well today and when I poured in the amount of noodles that she told me to, I thought they looked awfully small and that it couldn't possibly be enough. So I poured in the other half of the box and then because that wasn't bad enough, I poured in half a box of elbow macaroni from my pantry and ended up with this. Way too much pasta in my chicken soup. Maybe next time I'll get it right. Now if only I had three more packages of chicken thighs to even out the pasta.
