Out of the mouths of babes...

We rented Kung Fu Panda last weekend so the boys had to watch it over...and over...and act it out. Any way I was sitting in the kitchen eating lunch when the 5yr old came up to me and said "You eat when you're upset!"
"What a thoughtful, philosophical, deep, observant child", I thought. And what a transparent parent I must be! I was actually worried for a minute until he started reeling off other quotes and I realized it was a quote from the Kung Fu panda movie! Funny boy!
I take my big test on Dec 2nd and if I pass I get to graduate on the 12th and actually enjoy Christmas! (until I have to take my boards in Jan!). It's nice to see the light at the end of the tunnell but it's coming awfully fast now!

Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting!!!

So while I was at Costco at 6pm (with the rest of the county) my real estate agent calls. He says someone wants to see the house--in like an hour! Normally this wouldn't be a biggie but I was at costo, the kids hadn't eaten dinner and they NEEDED to bathe tonight. It took like 45 minutes to get home the lines to get your reciept checked were backed up to the registers at one point. It turned out fine in the end but weird. I try not to be around when the house is shown (besides, it's hard to see the house for the kids). You both kind of feel like you're interupting eachother.
After baths the boys still reeked of testoserone so wrestlemania broke out in my living room. One of those times when it's obvious we need more space (so they can get a running start at eachother). Ran my first long run in awhile. Got sunburned (sweet!) but realized that every public restroom between here and Highland is locked up for the season. I could post more but let's just say I'm glad they don't lock the port-a-johns on construction sites :).
I'm wiped out and Kell got a chocolate creme pie @costco--see ya!

Thank goodness for CO detectors!

So I went to bed at about 11pm. One of the littles woke me about 12am. At 1230am my CO alarm started going off. I read it and it said like 43, I thought 'not too bad' and took it off the wall and tested it-255ppm! I know a guy at the fire station, but he had his phone turned off so I thought I should just call dispatch-yeah, they put me on hold. Luckily I could page the capn on his fancy phone and they were just going to a call. When I told him what was up he told me to start the car and shlepp the kiddos out to wait for him. Not my idea of a good time. I mean CO wouldn't be a bad way to go, right? (just kidding)-but really.
So I got the kids in the car (this couldn't happen when it's warm, of course) and of course J&J have already exchanged blows. I waited in the car with the kids while capn & crew went through the house-I have to say how glad I am that we showed the house today so everything was amazingly clean-except (of course) my brazziere lying on the end of the bed. The stove was the culprit and the capn turned it off and opened some windows and stuff and my detector reads 0. I brought the kids back and put them to bed but I have to stay up for a bit to recheck before I drift off to never-neverland....

I'm not ready!!

I guess it is November but I am SOO not ready for the snow to be falling like it is! Oh crud I just remembered it's garbage day. So now I have to actually put on shoes to drag the can to the curb! I got up to run this morning, when I was up with whiny boys at 4:30 it looked clear so I didn't even look out til I went to step out the door @6. When I saw the snow I knew my runnning buddy would not be going out so I decided to stay in too. Glad I did. So even though I was up and dressed (to run) nearly 2 hours ago I sit here back in my PJ's with my pinf fuzzy robe and haven't got a whole lot accomplished. Okay I did run the trash to the curb.
I'm sure all of the Republicans are surprised to see that the sun did come up this morning (teehee). Glad I didn't have to stand in line for long.
We've had a few showings of our house this week and the realtor has said they've gone well, but no offers yet. It's funny though on our listing it says "Motivated sellers! Bring all offers!" I would probably describe us more as wishy-washy, especially since we haven't actually looked inside a new house for us! Whatever, I just hope people don't try to lowball us.
School is still crazy and my brain is usually full by 10am. My big test is less than 4 weeks away and I feel like there's no way I will ever feel ready. I have to pass this test to be eligible for the boards in January. Graduation is December 10th, or maybe it's the 12th? At any rate I'll have a few weeks off in December. I'd better go make sure I can find the kids coats!
