<p>Hi Ann - nice to see you back in these parts.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fun - 3 day work week for me!!!  Heading to Montreal for an extra-long weekend with the family on Thurs.  Anyone ever traveled there?  We have a bunch of things we want to see, but still open to suggestions, especially if you have fun ideas for the kids.</p>

Hey Litch! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I went to Montreal but it was when I was a kid.  I was intrigued by the McDonald's menu in French and riding the subway....but I am from the midwest, so I'm sure I was much more easily amused than most kids.  <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//wink.gif"> </p>

<p>Jack is probably saying:  Mom, it's GREAT outside.  Let's go scout out the neighborhood shenanngans!!!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Howdy, all!  Wonderful weekend here.  GA Tech won.  Falcons won (though I nearly yelled myself hoarse at the high-stress game).  Braves won!   I rearranged living room furniture, and now am at the final painting stage for the room.  Yeehaw.  Hair is hlghlighted.  Made crock pot applesauce. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh yeah.. and I made those <strong>pumpkin bars</strong>.  I said it before, and I'll say it again - whoever brought that recepe to my attention - I love you and hate you at the same time. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif">  I brought 80% of the batch to work today, because I knew I wouldn't have the proper restraint if they were all at home.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another fun thing from the weekend:  The <strong>classic car show</strong> in town.  Here's a slideshow of photos I took (unfortunately, I took about 250 and only 100 would fit in the show, but you can view the album if you want for the total collection)   <br>
<a href="http://s129.photobucket.com/albums/p236/ailarie/Misc/Classic%20Car%20Show/?action=view&current=9be023a7.pbw" target="_blank">http://s129.photobucket.com/albums/p236/ailarie/Misc/Classic%20Car%20Show/?action=view&current=9be023a7.pbw</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I got tickled at one point.  A guy with a yellow truck (it's in the slideshow) commented (after I put my drink down - away from the vehicle- to get a closer look )- that I needed to buy the car from him. HA!  I laughed and responded with an "I wish!".  He then replied "Well, you need a ring, at least".  Me:  What?  The guy then gives me this...</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/58513/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="100_1621.jpg" src="../../../image/id/58513/width/1000/height/500" style="; width: 1000px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I figure it was a marketing technique, because the vehicle with the most votes would win, and his truck was tweety-bird yellow.    Anyway, as he gave me the ring, he said "I'm sure you can find a kid to give that to...".  I responded "Who said <strong>I</strong> won't wear it?"  <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif">  Sure enough, it fit my ring finger.  Pft. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Okay.. I've hogged this thread enough for now. Have a FAB day folks.. even if it is a Monday!!</p>

<p>Litch, all I remember about Montreal is beautiful architecture and really mean natives.  <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif">  Oh, and getting lost a lot.... which is related to the natives because they kept giving us wrong directions on purpose. </p>

<p>Wait, you think the orange body paint had something to do with it????  Interesting...  I hadn't considered that.  </p>

It's too cold out (46°) for Jack to want to hang out outside. He had to pee.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now he is pacing around looking for someone to snuggle with. When temps cool off he becomes a major heat mooch.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>WIP</strong> - go home!</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I feel skinny today. Probably because I'm cold and everything is shriveling up trying to stay warm. </p>

<p>Got my very first baby gift from <strong>Missy</strong> which was so sweet! (<strong>Missy,</strong> you got my email, right?). 2nd babies kind of get the shaft so it was such a nice surprise. Had a dream about <strong>Maria</strong> the other night but can't remember what it entailed. <strong>GoV</strong>- how ya settling in?</p>
<p> </p>

<p>Hi <strong>Ann</strong>!  Nice to see your legs around here again!  <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>KJ</strong>- Hope traffic gets out of your way.  You should be able to use the car pool lanes since you're a doublet, right? </p>

<p>Everything went pretty well here over the weekend with the national press bearing down on our football team.  I was on my feet (err, foot and cast) way too much though and walked way too many miles in the course of dealing with work stuff.  Yesterday was pretty mellow though, and Amy let me kick back with my foot up and watch football for a good chunk of the day.  Then we went to a neighborhood watch meeting to meet the local residents.  The group skews quite a bit older, no other families with young kids were there.  Oh well, Mila can probably score some good critter watching gigs while folks go south for vacations over the winter.  The going rate seems to be $20 to $25 per day depending on number and type of critters.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a good Monday y'all!</p>

<p>Well, we're back to the gray rainy days after a weekend of gorgeousness.  Although I just need to muster my way through Thursday and then I'm off with Jason to Vegas for the weekend.  His kickball team made the National Tournament that will be played there this Saturday.   I'm picturing it all set up like the movie, Dodgeball - so look for coverage on The Ocho!<br>

<p>I just washed off the walls above the cupboards - you know, that foot of space between the cupboards & ceiling? We have flourescent (?) lights on top of the cupboards, and WOW, are they dusty. I don't use them, generally don't think about them at all, and apparently have not wiped them off since the last time I painted the kitchen 6 years ago. WHOA.... I bet there's an inch of dust. Dh said the bulbs should come out before they're cleaned..... which means that has become his job. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title=""></p>

<p>howdy peeps.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>busy day at work, research I was suppose to complete last Fri took forever for me to finish this morning...good grief.  My boss sent me an email over the weekend though, saying a report I'd done (on the many named, multiple spelling, Sheik of Arabi, dude) was good.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>not sure there's much fun around here this morning, cold rainy day here.</p>

<p>Morning folks!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So rough going around here.  This baby is doing a number on me, my back in particular.  I ended up leaving work early Thur and then called out Fri.  After a day and a half resting I felt ok all weekend.  But today is unreal, the pain is horrible, people are stopping me in the halls asking if I am ok and I can't decide which is worse, sitting or standing!!  Luckily I have a doc appt tomorrow so I can ask him about it.  but sadly, I think this is my lot for the next 2 months.  Not fun.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But in fun news, we did begin painting little man's new bedroom over the weekend.  Think of the brightest yellow you can...and then amp that up!!  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title="">  But a fun color for a kids room and every time he walks in he says "Oh Mommy, I am so excited!"  so that's all that counts to me!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have to go back to see what i missed over the weekend.  Oh and I did get a good out loud laugh Maria cause I am just hoping J's team has no uniform mixups <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>

<p><br><img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wave.gif" style="width:25px;height:15px;" title="">I'm so glad you liked them!  I do cut back the butter significantly when I make them now, but the first time around I made them as is and they are definitely super rich.  I've also always wanted to make the choc-peanut butter ones, but haven't dared to yet.<br>

<p><br><strong>Lori</strong> - does it help to get on all fours to try and move him around at all?  DD went through a spell sitting on a nerve and I had to do this often to get her into a better spot.  Yes, you'll feel silly, but it did help me.<br>

I tried that an so far, no luck.  I am hoping to hit the pool this week.  Last time the only way I could get relief was some pool time, Aidenw ould just float right on up and it was instant relief!  This time though, the pain is way more intense so not sure what I can do to help it. <br>
