never wake a sleeping child

parenting 101 right? except sometimes the mommy gene overrides all sanity and logic and one finds oneself waking the baby in an effort to confirm the baby is still breathing....I am curious clearly C is not a baby so when does this overwhelming an idiotic compulsion stop???? I just woke my almost 10 year old "baby" to make sure he was still breathing because he does not normally sleep until almost 8 on the weekends

my new method to deal with stress

climbing into bed and putting my head under the covers.....the theory needs a little work but it'll do for a weary Friday evening

it wasn't really all that ironic

the rain on our wedding day that is I've always heard it was good luck!
14 years later and I am still deeply in love with my dear husband David even those times when I want to smother him with a pillow to make him stop snoring

best laid plans

big dinner plans on Saturday were thwarted by the popularity of the tiny tiny restaurant, even with reservations we were looking at about a half hour wait at best near as we could tell. Plus tables were jammed in to fit as many folks as possible and the noise level did not really lend itself to a quiet dinner for two as it was going on 8 o'clock we opted out for the evening winding up with Captain D's to go and an evening at home. Disappointing but we would have been more disappointed spending a sizable chunk of money on a dinning experience we would not enjoy....although I am quite sure the food would have been great so we may try again at a later date with an earlier reservation time perhaps. Regrouping included plans for brunch at one of our favorite restaurants the Northshore Brasserie, we love the brasserie and have been numerous times for dinner & lunch but never brunch because well we do not go to brunch often enough for my liking. But brunch it was & brunch there was stupendous! a little pricey but not really when you consider the quality, quantity & variety of food being served and I might add I have not even mentioned the whole kids under 12 eating for we have another 2 years where C could eat free!
