Best made plans

Well, I had plans to clean my very messy house today, but it never happened. Here I am on this infernal machine again. Why is it that less than 12 hours after my hubby comes home from a trip, my house is 50% messier than it was? How is that possible? He's just one person. One big, messy person with a LOT of crap! This man has more equipment, or "gear" as he calls it, than anyone I have ever met. Really. It permeates every room of the house and trickles out into the garage. His truck is full of it. Sam's room is full of it. My tiny little bathroom in the back of the house is currently packed, our bedroom holds little treasures as well. When the computer guy was here trying to get us set up I was looking in this plastic bin where I keep all of our disks and setup stuff and there were bullets in there. Sheesh! He's just pulling into the driveway so I better stop talking about him.

Ranger has to go back to the vet tomorrow. They wanted to make sure that the swelling was going down, so I made a follow-up appointment. It's a good thing because the swelling is worse instead of better. He's through with his antibiotics and all that, but his nose is still looking pretty bad. I'll let you know what they say and how much it's gonna set me back.

Sam just tried to do a little celebration dance. It was basically a circle, but he couldn't complete the entire thing because he lost control and spun out. Too cute! He LOVES his Dada. He was so excited when Vince came home from California. He just starting screaming, "Dada, Dada!" And if you've ever heard Sam scream, you know how crazy the homecoming was. I never thought it was possible for one little boy to be louder than his 2 sisters combined. Anything's possible I realize now. His latest cute trick is "nigh-nigh". He grabs a stuffed whatever or his favorite blanket that Aunt Bonni made for him and cuddles with it and says "nigh-nigh, nigh-nigh". Or when you put him in the bed he starts up with it. And he says love you. "Ah-voo". His favorite word is still no. Typical.

I will be making another trip to Wisconsin soon. My Grandfather's funeral is set for Oct. 15th and they are having a burial for my Grandmother's ashes on the 16th. So, I will fly out there by myself for a couple of days while my mother-in-love flies in to watch the kids since V will be out of town--AGAIN! Busy, busy.

They are predicting snow for later this week. Snow! October 1st. Snow! Oh, I miss the south. We still have summer clothes out. Not that we've gotten to wear them much. It's been so cool here all "summer". I've already scraped ice off the windshield once a couple weeks ago. It's nuts. I'm beefing up the Halloween costumes so the kids can wear their snowsuits under. The heater has been on for a couple of weeks now. Let's see. The heater was on until June and then comes back on in September. Is that insane, or is it just me? No wonder there's a bar on every corner up north.

Well, Vince and I are supposed to have a date tonight, so I guess I should get off of here and get dinner for the kids, get myself ready and the kids dressed. I have 30 minutes. Think I can do it? You betcha!

I am glad you get to go out tonight! Dress warm!

When my husband is home, it stays messy too...I can have the coffee table cleaned off, and 1.5 minutes after he walks in the door, there are 3 glasses, 2 computers, sunglasses, papers, gallon water jugs, cookies, and remotes on there!
