1. Hey, Superheroes need to eat too!


2. 11:00 am-Turkey Roll up, 12:00 pm-nap, 1:00 pm-Save the world.


3. "When I've confirmed that all four food groups are present in this sandwich, I'll give you back your computer cord."


4. "I'm pretty sure I asked for peanut butter. No worries, though. I will pull all of this meat out of here and flip my bib around. In say, five minutes, let's both give this "lunch" thing another try."


5. "I'm saving some of this meat for later. The Xbox is the same thing as a refrigerator, right?"

Fly on the Wall: August 2015


Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the August Fly on the Wall Group Challenge. This month, 13 awesome bloggers and I are describing what it would be like if you were to take a peek inside our homes....



Have a "look" around mine, and then go visit the other blogger's pages. There's always something fun, sentimental, or better yet, embarrassing going on. It's like your house, only we're admitting to the craziness. You have our permission. Buzz on over!


Cast:
Me
The man
Alex, the eldest 
Micah, Alex's husband 
C., The middle (son, 17)
J., The youngest (son, 10)

The fly on the wall was in a lot of places this month. The last bit of summer seems to have that effect on insects and people.

Sarcastic Convos and Dreams: 
Whether big or small, everyone had something to celebrate this month.

Micah, the son-in-law, was offered a coaching job at a local high school. According to him, a job pertaining to basketball is something that he has always wanted. (Well, besides having the undying love of his in-laws, but that's another story for another day.) Seriously, we are so proud of him.
***



This is a panorama of Alex's new classroom. She starts her dream job of being a teacher on Tuesday! Of course she still has dreams of being a dentist, an acrobat, and a hot air-balloon driver. She would also like to be related to the man who invented cheese curds. One day at a time, girl. 

Texts from Alex during the week of her teacher training. She has just recently given up sugar and white flour (during the most stressful week of her new career.)

Alex: Mom. I'm hungry and the district is catering. My salad is mocking me.
Alex: Mom. They brought in bagels. And cookies. Is this a bad joke?
Alex: Errr. Pizza. You brought me up to never turn down free food, mom. Why is this happening?
Alex: Pasta today :(
Alex: I'm feeling better. Confident. I can do this!
Alex: Ok. The freaking Waffle Cart is here!!! 
***

C.'s dream came partly true this month. He wants to finish school and become an astronautical engineer. He spent the better part of our trip to Florida at the Kennedy Space Center. 
One day, he will be an employee.

C. says that he would drive this van and tell people he manned a vehicle for NASA.

He also said he'd even work the grill at the "Orbit Cafe," a restaurant at the space center. 

C.: "I'll tell everyone I work for NASA. I'll say, "I'm pretty important. Without me, NASA wouldn't even function. You could say that NASA runs on my work. The instruments I work with get pretty hot, but it's a sacrifice I make daily for America.'"

C. in the hotel with his 9 dollar space blanket. Sucker.
***
J. has dreams too. He wanted to see a spacesuit. He wanted to live in Canada. (Don't ask.) He wanted to stay up all night and watch the Food Network. He wanted to fly on an airplane long enough to finish a movie. Oh, and he wanted to eat a pretzel as big as his head.
He almost got it all.
Who needs the Space Center when you can pose with a familiar name?

Canada ala' Epcot Center

Pretzel. Check.

J.: (on the plane): "You know what? I'm going to tell my wife to drive the kids when we go on vacation. I'm going to tell her I'll fly and meet her there. We probably won't fight that way."
C. : "You probably won't have a wife that way."

Finally:

The man: "Our anniversary is coming up. It's a big one! What are you thinking you'd like?"
Me: "Something big and shiny."
The man: "Something that will make people ooh and ahh?"
Me: "Yep."
The man: "Something bigger than your current ring?"
Me: "Um, yes!!"
The man: "So we're on the same page?"
Me: "After all these years, I certainly hope we are!!"

Yes. Yes we were.
Happy Friday, Friends!

Murray on the left, George on the right.


1. Murray bargained with the stars in the sky: "Get me through this ONE night without throwing up, and I will never EVER, double-dog-dare or not, drink a gallon of warm chocolate milk again."


2. "Wake up, Murray. Does something smell funny?"


3. "Keep playing dead, Mister. But when we get to the next Chick-Fil-A, it's YOUR turn to dance."


4.  George immediately regretted opening the cab window for some "fresh air".


5. The straps were loosened. George figured it would take three hard nudges. Maybe four. Today would be the LAST day he'd ever have to be second-in-line.
