Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Blogger in absentia

Hey folks. I'm sorry to have been AWOL. I've been swamped with work and all sorts of family things. The kids are now at three different schools. So, between taking them to and from school and work, I'm a road warrior and poor Wheezy McWhistleMobile has the bumps and bruises to show for it.

My company shut down for a company-wide holiday the week before Labor Day and I spent it painting Hot Rod's room in a Florida Gators theme. And, shockingly, the orange and blue work.

I've been on a home improvement spree lately. We got Pickle a new bed from the CSN Stores. Free shipping and its great! He loves it and it makes his room look so much more age appropriate for a 16-year-old. I need to take a picture of it and post it. CSN Stores has more than 200 online stores where you can find everything from nesting tables to fitness equipment to cookware.

And, I FINALLY got out my new coffee grinder from one of the CSN Stores and have been using it for a little more than a month now. As a matter of fact, I'm drinking my freshly ground coffee now. It has been great. Compact and efficient. I'm very pleased with it. Now, CSN Stores is giving me the opportunity review another product for the plug for the nesting tables. So, I'll keep you posted on what we pick. I may just do something flamboyant just for me. That might be a change. Not the flamboyant part, but just for me part. :)

Off to the baseball fields. Hot Rod may be on the mound tonight and I don't want to be late.


Happy Birthday, Pickle

We had a ball at Anime Fest. Can you tell, by these pictures, that he's turning 16 today? Oh yeah, he gravitated to the ladies.

Happy Birthday Pickle. I am so glad we get to geek out together.


Never Forget

A simple gesture like flying the flag goes a long way to reminding the world that we will NEVER FORGET what happened on 9/11/01. Terrorists will NOT win. Regardless of who is leading the United States of America - the patriots, the citizens, the everyday people will take up arms and defend this great country. Do not think you have won, terrorists. You have not and will not ever defeat us. Baseball, PTA, mini-van driving soccer moms, the guy flipping burgers at the downtown diner and even the commercial real estate broker filling up our downtown office buildings will not let you win. You would do well to remember that before you think of coming to our home ever again.
