Lucy's Birds

Lucy's Birds


Originally uploaded by justlisaw.

Last year Lucy was just six months old when bird season rolled around. She got several quail but no pheasants. This morning she got her first pheasants and two more quail.

I demanded some credit too because I cleaned the kitchen really well this morning. Took apart the range hood and the stove and scoured the tiles. I figured if I cleaned it up reallllly good, they'd come home with something to make a mess with. I was right!

Taking Inventory

I've been camped at my desk for more than a week now and just started the process of digging out. 7 glasses, 3 mugs, 2 big plates, 1 little plate, 2 empty gum packs and scrap paper a few inches deep litter every flat surface within my reach.

I've ignored all of my friends through this stretch and I'm sorry. I preach that life is about priorities but sometimes life sets them for us. I am hanging onto a single strand of hope that this week will be better.

This makes me CrAzY!

1 in 5 parents believe their children are online too much? Gee, I wonder who will resolve this problem for them?

Due to my job, we have a lot of computers in this house. All of them are connected to the internet. I am on the computer at least 9 hours per day. The kids are on the computer less than 9 hours a month. They are not allowed to use instant messenger or have myspace. Emily has a fotolog site that is rarely used and always monitored. Christopher gets online to look up the occasional cheat code. Ben never gets on. Emily could be an ebay-aholic but no one lets her.

I'm pretty sure if we had just given them unlimited access to the computer, 1 out of 3 of them might be shut up in a bedroom playing games into the night and fighting on myspace. As is the case with everything related to children, it's all about enforcing boundaries and parental responsibility.
