Things Found

We told the kids it fell from the sky but I found it late one night on the curb. What to do with an old claw foot tub? I'm sure I'll figure it out.

Hello Four. Welcome.

Saturday, June 26th, 2010: Lew turns four. Toilette trains. Continues acts of public nudity.
(Current foot wear favorite: hightop pumas; still a little rough on how to pull off underwear)

It's always someone's birthday


I'll take it where I can get it.

Boy Kid: "Hey Dex, is that your new babysitter?"

(pointing to me)

Dex: "no! that's my Mom."

Sometimes I hate breakfast

Neville: "Lewis is staring at me!! Whhaaa! Make him stop!"

Lewis: "Neville, hey Neville! I'm staring at you! Look at me Neville, I'm staring at YOU!"


Lewis: "haha still staring!"

Me: "THAT'S IT! From now on we will be eating our breakfast with our eyes closed!!"

Doing stuff is overrated.

Today I ran 8 km in 39:26, placed ninth in my age group, did it in the pouring rain, without music or someone to talk with, almost no training (one to two 6 km runs a week don't really count) and about four day's notice (just how I like to do things). All to just scratch "running a race" off my "bucket list." I thought about waffles the whole time. They are cooking now.

It's a fucking miracle.

Lew pooped and peed on the toilette. He'll be four in about three weeks.

Could this be the end of diapers for me?????

(To be continued...)


See a penny pick it up and all day long you'll have good luck.
See a penny let it lie and bad luck will pass you by.

See a gigantic severed bird talon? .......... I was torn. But I didn't pick it up (but I won't lie: I thought about it). I wonder what will happen next.

Side effects

On my way into roller derby practice I had to walk through a group of men. One, under his breath and as fast as he could spit it out said: "yo-what's-up-baby-doll?" I took it as a compliment.
