  1. Yes, you are right. And I do work on that. But sometimes that means ignoring everything the child says because if I answer even the most innocent comment from him he turns it into an argument. It takes a lot of mental energy staying one step ahead of this child conversationally.
  2. I hate it when you've got a sick kid, and you're really hoping you don't get it and so you hyper-analyze every single twinge you have, hoping to heaven that you aren't coming down with it, too! Am I getting sick? Or is that just gas? Hmmm. This may be a long night!
  3. Saw that in the movie theater when it first showed. Thus starting my 40 (?) year long love affair with Harrison Ford. That crooked smile. Sigh!
  4. I'm sorry! I understand about the arguers. I have one, too. He argues about everything. Hugs!
  5. As long as there's coffee with peppermint mocha creamer... I'm all for it!
  6. Ok, now I am convinced that germs can be transmitted via the internet. I have a barfly now. Fortunately he only barfed a couple of times and now seems to be on the mend. We were all fine and healthy until all you people decided to start getting sick.
  7. Your breakfast sounds good and healthy. I am so tired of eating the carp we eat for breakfast (boxed cereal), but that's about all I can manage at this time in life.
  8. This is my kids. They throw up and then they're fine. We're all drowning in mucus around here, so I'm thinking that's it!
  9. I though about asking, but I assumed you explained what it was several pages back and I didn't want to let on that I hadn't read every last word that's been written since the last time I visited this thread. So I thought I'd do what I always do in conversations where I have no idea what they are talking about.... Listen until I pick up enough context clues to figure out what it is!
  10. And now, for your enjoyment, a poem by me. I call it... "Knitting by the Fire" I'm sitting... and knitting Knitting by the fire. I'm knitting.... a scarf Knitting by the fire. The cat.... is watching Knitting by the fire. I'm knitting.... And pearling Knitting by the fire.
  11. Points for quoting myself!I'm done! Spent all afternoon on-line and I'm done! And I'm sorry about sick kids! And I agree, older women do need to go lighter! And I'm not a huge fan of Barry Manilow! And I never could learn languages. Except English, when I was a mere tot.
  12. We eat the stirring kind. Adams Creamy is what we get.
  13. I hate Christmas shopping. I hate it! I hate it! There! I said it! I hate going to the mall. I can't go to the mall. I have 4 kids. Actually 5, but one of them is at school during the day. I hate doing it on line. I don't know what my kids like to do. Isn't that strange? Right now, they are waiting for me to get off the iPad and get on with school and all 4 are playing some little game they made up. Which is great! But how can I buy that on Amazon? I finally got the boys bought for, now it's just my little girls! Sigh! And time is fleeting. I've got to get this done, soon! And Booya! Humb
  14. Never saw Batman. Love Dick Van Dyck! But I really want to watch Christmas Vacation. I need to laugh. And that movie makes me laugh!
  15. What is the matter with you? (Said in the same tone of voice I use when I cannot believe my child just did something)(one thing I hate about typing, have to explain the tone!)
  16. Wow, that's pretty good! The only person I imagine where she lives is Tex. because that's in her name. I think everyone's name ought to have a reference to where they live. That would be helpful. I would change my name to KrisCal!
  17. That would be a good solution if we could get him to do it without beating him. Actually, I did convince dh to let him continue to do sports, even though his grades are in the cellar. He loves basketball and more than anything, he needs the excerize. So, hopefully he'll have a coach that will run him good!
  18. Ok, so apparently what I thought were slice and bake cookies are not slice and bake cookies. Guess the kids in Children's Church are going to have to go with crackers again as a snack! And it's not letting me upload the picture. Well, imagine a whole cookie sheet that is one big, smeary mass of peppermint sugar cookie!
  19. Of course we do. That's why some of us rarely set foot on any other thread.
  20. Ok, so does anyone have an anti-dote for testosterone overdose in a 12 boy? I am about to go craaaaaaaaaazzzzzzzzyyyyyyy!
