word of the week

FRUITLOOP - 1. verb. To forget something you earlier remebered. 2. adj. to be a goober

in a sentence: Tammy totally fruitlooped about the party on sunday and forgot to come even though she remembered in the morning. After realizing she was such a fruitloop she was going to call, but fruitlooped that too before she got the email wondering where she was.

Video Store: "hi this is video to go, and the matrix revolutions dvd you returned is missing disc one"
me: "oops, i totally fruitlooped and forgot it in the dvd player"
video store: "that's ok, it's a common mistake"
me: "after my son wake's up, i'll be glad to bring it over"

i'm such a bonehead sometimes. lol

Summer days

so it's been determined my evan's nurse at the dr's that he has hand, foot and mouth. apparantly it's very common in young children/babies in the summer. and it's contagious. according to (an online baby doctor site i love) it's mostly contagious through the saliva.... hmm who was drooling on him that he caught this virus? who's kid was running around just drooling on everything.. i have no idea but it's funny to imagine. we had all thought he was working on his 2-year molars, which i s'pose it still could have been, but more likely it was the mouth sores associated with the virus. they didn't give us any medicine for it, and it should go away in about a week. i did call the dr's again this mornign to ask if there was anything i can do for the blisters on his feet b/c they seem to be bugging him when he walks (they're on his soles!) poor little guy. he is otherwise fine and happy though, which is all good.

i finally got my first sunburn of the season last week when i went to go visit amy in nh. my back got fried. and from that day it's confirmed that evan has daddy's skin. evan has the french skin that tans and not the pasty scottish skin that burns. thank god. i'm not sure i'd wish it on anyone i care about. i'll never forget the time i burnt my butt falling asleep at the beach by my house... not my whole butt, but the outer parts that were exposed thanks to my suit. i couldn't sit comfortably for days. now i wear those suits that have those little skirts to hide my fat thighs. it's not an old lady one tho.. atleast i don't think so.

evan looks very cute in his babe-in-suit as we say around here. look at that little gut. what a porker. he is so funny these days talking up a storm. mostly words we can't decipher, but it's cute all the same. it's amazing these little kids can learn so much so quickly.

later all, i'm gonna get reading on some HP

hum drum hum drum....

yeah.. i'm bored at the moment. evan's in bed and jason and tyler are watching empire on abc... a show i couldn't get into. i finished reading the Closers by michael connelly and am in the process of waiting for some books of his i bought on ebay to show up at my door, b/c he ismy favorite author. what did you say? what do you mean i have time to read? yeah only after evan goes to b ed, but when the book gets you sucked init's hard to put down and i've been known to let evan run amok in the back yard with the hose dribbling some water while i sit cozy in the chaise looking up once in a while... it's even better when the neighbor's come over to play b/c they keep evan occupied.

i could play my computer game, but it's 10:30 something and that too sucks you in once you play.. hate to stop. altho when you die and reload and realize you haven't saved in a while.. that's usually a good stopping point.

perhaps i'll head up to bed soon.. i've been pooped. that week off of work really did me in i guess... made me lazier, is that a word? oh well... if it's not i'll hear the wrath of nanny in my sleep. always correcting our speech, she was.

evan's doing well with going to bed on his own... he has stopped throwing up due to crying so we've been able to let him calm himself to go to bed... last night was 20 min, and tonight was shy of 15... didn't notice he stopped. oh well. people say it only takes 3 nights. i wonder if tht's just an average.

i have a toy party on sunday at 2:30 you should come. there will be some food there. btw. bring a friend or two. let them bring their babies. i have a kiddie pool they can play in.

jason had a job interview this afternoon at some charter school in fitchburg. jay says it went well, and i hope something good comes of it... altho it is an hour commute. beggers can't be chosers.

i'm grateful i don't have tourists constantly driving me crazy during the summer. sorry mom. sucks for you. but you should be grateful it's only for 3 months and not 9 months of college students being assholes and idiots all over the place. they don't know how to drive, those little snobby brats from CT.

mom, if i don't remeber to mail you out your next dvd, i'll bring it with me when i'm in the area next. how do you like the show? it's addicting... perhaps i should just mail it tomorrow when i'm not working. i'll have to find an envelope.

later, sleepiness is taking over, and i had the need to blog so i did
