Oh my la-la ....

Chandler(12) comes down stairs at 6 this morning, the first day of 7th grade, our conversation:

C: Mom, I got it.

Me: Got what?

C: I got IT!!

Me: It, what?


Me: Oh!!!  My la-la!!! 


Yes, my first born got her very first monthly cycle! She's crampy, but otherwise doing fine so far. She knew what to expect so she wasn't too spazzed out.  But what a crappy day for it to happen on!  I'm going to take her to a nice lunch Saturday and get her a little gift of some sort.  If you have an idea please post it in comments!

School, Burban, Fay

Lots of stuff going on!  I'm coming up on finals for the summer A session in my class with DeVry. This last week is a killer!  We're analyzing the annual report of Whole Foods - 68 pages long!  On top of homework, lecture and discussions!  Going to be a mega busy week!! 

Yesterday the Suburban sprung a leak - transmission fluid in the driveway.  Frustrating because we're getting ready to go on the vacation and a big chunk of $ is tied up on that, so not a lot left for repairs right now. 

We're also keeping an eye on TS/Hurricane Fay.  We have many friends and family down there on the W coast side of FL.

Never thought I'd say ....

This conversation would never have been conceived of.


Upon finding salt in Adam's hair:

Me: Tori did you put salt on Adam?

Tori: Yes Mommy

Me: Why did you put salt on your brother?

Tori: I want to eat him!
