The Search Party.....

Okay, someone threatened to send a search party out for me, it's been so long since I last posted. So, here ya go C....

Been supremely busy, as usual. Still plugging away on the real estate, but have now made a conscious decision to take it DOWN a notch and just be sort of casual about it until the boys start school, as I am spending much to much of my time with them on the whole thing and it is having a negative effect, not just on them but on me! We are never going to get these pre-school years back, so I am going to enjoy them and have as much fun and as many hugs and cuddles as I can get while I can get them and before they start being embarrassed by their parents. However, I am happy to say that there is some activity going on in the world of real estate and it is interesting and fun, so that is cool.

The hubs is good, although we found out that most likely he will be laid off by next July. Joy! Don't get me started on the f-ing cancer-like-all-hail-the-might-dollar-screw-the-employees-as-long-as-the-f-ing-stockholders-are-making-money behavior of the American corporation! I don't suppose that there would be enough time for my Democratic Senator to introduce some legislation creating tax consequences for corporate outsourcing before he gets the axe, but I'm writing a letter to Hillary about it just the same. However, breathing deeply and attempting to remain calm, I am trying to look at this as an opportunity for him to perhaps find a new job closer to home than 45 minutes away, so maybe that will work out. At any rate, at least he's got a little bit of a head up about it, so that's cool.

My mom came the visit and we had a great time. Cooper and the mo are big fans of each other, two muskateers indeed and now he gets on the phone and extensive conversations with his grandmother now that she is back in Oregon, complete with shshsh-ing me to make sure I am not noisy while he's on the phone.

Gage is a drooool machine, think he has 2 year molars coming in, and as a consequence seems to take comfort in hitting Cooper, because of course that will make him feel better. Otherwise, he's awesome and really funny and talking more and more and sings and sings and sings. He's going to be a musician fo sho! Just this morning, to my delight, he was rocking out to The Reverend Horton Heat when it came on the radio.......he's got the beat!

I've been trying in vain to get them interested in soccer, which I understand from Mommyrox is the cheapest (equipment-wise) of the sport. However, I have discovered that they are pretty uncoordinated and can't keep their hands off the ball. ANOTHER mommy gave me an even better idea: SWIMMING! Speedo and goggles, all you need and the meets are always indoors, no sitting in the cold and rain (crap! totally unforeseen consequence, drats!). Upon which her two HULKING sons informed me that swimming and soccer would be good sports for them to get into if I wanted them to get picked on by the la cross, football and hockey players. I'm scared now, what if I screw them up by encouraging them to were speedos and be in the drama club? They are gonna get beat up aren't they? And it will be all my fault....

Speaking of beatings, I can hear them coming down stairs from the naps, hitting each other or at least yelling, "stop it" at each other.....gotta go.

peace out my lovelies.

Oh Miss LDV.....So glad to call off the search party!
We are in such a hot soccer area that there is no way for your kids to get picked on. Besides they will be the cool kids. They like the Rev Hort Heat!
Sitting in the rain is a small price to pay for your childs happiness. They will know you love them by such a simple gesture. Isn't that what it's all about anyways. The hand thing that's the goalies job, do not be discouraged! Soccer is still an option.
Sorry to hear about the hubs, that f-ing sux!
