"Good night, Gizmo. I'll most likely get rid of you in the morning." Says I.
"You're going to give Mini-Me a complex, if you keep doing that," observes the professor.
"Why?" I want to know. "I'm not getting rid of HER."
Mini-me tells me "I may have astronomy and spelunking as my hobbies when I'm older."
I love that she chose these. and impressed that she said "May". As if she's keeping her options open.
I'm a romantic. Utterly.
The Professor is utterly not.
He's a geek. Gamer geek.
I am not. (I like games, don't get me wrong -- just not like he does).
It's a wonder we have four children.
Oh, heck.It's a wonder we talk.
He keeps me stable...so I can keep my head in the clouds.
"Mom!!" g-man says, "Robert E. Lee was cool!!"
"MOM!!! Ulysses Grant went to school with Robert E. Lee!" ... "He's cool, too."
History buff in the making?
Uncle Kick-butt got himself engaged.
To someone that's sweet. and special.
She thinks he's cute. Even when he's annoying.
To this sib - when he's annoying - he's just annoying.
he's a great brother though.
Today's his birthday.
Which means .. I'm going to be 37.
My logic spasms just a bit at that number.
So I focus on the fact that he's 31. And wishes him a happy birthday.
Went to see Avatar last night.
I liked it.
I want to see it again.
Valentine's day is coming up. It's hard to miss. They put the decorations up the minute the clock struck midnight the day after Christmas.
The professor is worried about finances.
So I asked what he wanted to do.
(Bubble's birthday is actually on the 14th. So we adjust our date stuff to celebrate her birthday.)
I asked, "Are we doing gifts or not?"
He was mulling it over and I asked myself, "YOU IDIOT!! What *are* you doing?!? Your love language is gifts! You'll be bummed if he doesn't get you something for valentine's day. The romantic in you will probably be disappointed anyway - because it's a well established fact that he's not.
But a gift is a gift. Right?"
And if I told him "no gifts" - he wouldn't break that. At all. Ever. Never ever.
So we'll set a budget for gifts.
sometimes life is just too normal to blog about.
