    The "Good Night" Project 2

    Haven't popped in the last couple of days...my parents were supposed to come today for an appt in the city tomorrow but showed up Monday b/c of pending weather and then came straight to our place instead of my brother's 20 mins away. So, I've been entertaining and peacekeeping so to speak...and i have to drive my mom to the city since they hate the traffic. Off to bed soon as we have to get out the door early to bring kids to school with Easter cupcakes and a baby gift for a teacher leaving, and be to the doctor by 9:15. Cross your fingers, say a prayer that the snow stays away tomorrow...and that the doc's assessment of Mom will tell us a cochlear implant will stop the vertigo, help the deafness, and restore quiet in her head (she says it sounds like she's in a wind tunnel with a constant roar in her head driving her crazy) ever since an ear infection in Dec 2014 changed her health completely for the worse. Nighty night all. Peace and prayers to Brussels and the World.

    What film are you watching tonight?

    I decided to let him go hesitantly as it is 2.5 hrs long (wow!) but then she texted to say they would be staying home for the party instead...crisis averted...whew....gotta cut the apron strings soon...:(

    Throwback Thursday

    I'm in the middle of Mad Men...telephone number is my guess if the 70s were like the stewardesses of the 60s in that show!

    Funny you mention migraines (*sorry u have one)...this page was on my FB feed...apparently, a piercing in the inner cartilage of the ear folds has made all the diff for some people! http://m.huffpost.com/uk/entry/8531022

    What film are you watching tonight?

    Advice: has anyone delved into the Batman vs. Superman trailers and the pg-13 rating? Is it completely unsuitable for a 9 almost 10 year old? N1's friend is turning 10 and is having a sleepover for his bday and he wants to go to the cinema to watch B vs S. His parents asked if my son was able to go. I'm weary b/c of the rating and the little sneak peek of a girl superhero crawling into a hot tub with one of the guy superheroes...not sure how far the scene goes from the trailer...and if course they want to go Friday. We did let him see Star Wars, Jurassic World, some of the Avengers...so if it's along that line, fine. I don't want it to be a Deadpool type superhero movie for adults.

    The "Good Morning" Project

    Happy Sunday morning! The Weather Channel can't decide what Mother Nature intends for us this week...the guy says big nor'easter coming to dump wind and snow yet their forecast says 6 derees and rain for Tuesday with very little precipitation all week....hmmm... I've searched the site but can't find much on accomodations around St. Pete's. My sis with her family of 5 are going near the end of April and she's asked me for help....so I'm asking you all...what are the really nice condos/suites for three kids/2 adults in St. Pete's area?? Prob for a week to 10 days... Have a good day!

    Robe Idea

    Friend of mine made wonderful robes for her 2 sons' bday last year (black with maroon and black with green) and she bought the iron on embroidered patches from eBay for the chest crests. They were amazing. You should make them!

    The "Good Night" Project 2

    Watching Supercross from Detroit right now with the Muggle...so hard watching live tv when you can't fast forward the commercials! Mad men on Netflix earlier. Spent the afternoon cleaning the basement since my parents are coming to visit on Wednesday and the spare room is filled with junk. Took the boys to Toys R Us this morning for the free Lego minifigure scavenger hunt they put off. Boys are "camping" on the couch downstairs tonight - crossing fingers N2 doesn't wet the sleeping bag/couch...that would be bad ...despite being 6, he still wets sometimes...he was dry for 2 months there and earlier the week, he was wet 4 nights in a row...so frustrating and we've tried everything.....hhhmmmppph. Nighty night!

    Good afternoon now! No snow day as was forecasted so the boys dragged their heels to the bus in disappointment. It did snow enough to clear but not close school or work. On the other hand, it's given me and bday boy hubby the day to ourselves to adult, relax, and eat as he was still under the weather and stayed home from work - at least til 3 pm. Happy Friday!! Happy bday to Kris' spouse, Freddyglove's spouse, and mine - we'll have to plan a meetup around the 18th at some point in the future; one bug bday party! Lol....course that just means more work for us catering to the bday peoples so maybe another time! ;p

    The "Good Morning" Project

    Well, it's nearly lunch...boys will be home from their half day soon - PT interview day. I booked for this afternoon while my Muggle is at work since I figure the boys are old enough to play in the playground behind the school while I am inside and so I wouldn't have to go tonight in a forecasted snow storm but alas, the Muggle decided to not feel well and for once take a day off work sick. So, the boys can stay here while I'm gone. It was nice binge watching Mad Men with him once they left for school this morning. Major faux pas this AM, apparently, leprechauns are supposed to mess up my house and leave gold coins on St. Patrick's Day. 10 years into this Mom job and I didn't know this one when N1 woke up searching for gold! Oh well...sprinkled some shamrock candy on the pancakes to make up for it. Think we'll have stew tonight...the suggestion was Irish but I have no lamb so beef will have to do. Have a grand day all! Congrats on the test passing Lainie, and Happy Birthday to Nathan, Kris...tomorrow is my Muggle/husband's birthday too...:) FreddyGlove - should we ask why you bought 7 dozen bagels?? I mean, I shop at Costco too but 7 dozen...hmmm jk
