1. "So, does this car come in a convertible?"


2. Tapping the shoulder of a salesperson: "Um, do you work here? I'd like to buy that light blue cooler, please."


3. "Oh, didn't I tell you honey? We've decided to go bowling instead."


4. Sign on front: "Car for Sale. AS IS."


5. "Just wait until you see what we have in the trunk!"

6. When she saw the tent on top, Rose realized Harold might finally be leaving for good.

Fly on the Wall: March 2015

Hey-O!  Welcome to the March Fly on the Wall Group Challenge. This month, 14 amazing 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 (daughter, 21) 
C., The middle (son, 16)
J., The youngest (son, 10)

First of all, I'd like to explain where in the world I've been for the last few months. But if I did that, I'd actually have to give an answer. The truth is I've been dealing with issues out in the real world that are a bit too painful to blog about. Yet. I miss writing so much. I hope to continue, but for right now, I'm here. Thanks for sticking around :)

Hockey, anyone?
Red Wings forever, I know. But, we are across the country from Joe Louis Arena. For now, the youngest is attending games here in our city. Our team, the Mustangs, are part of the Western States Hockey League. J. absolutely loves it.
Thank goodness the Mustangs also wear red.

Since J. likes to imitate life in LEGO form, this is sitting in the middle of his bedroom:

Check out that audience. Everyone is a fan :)

Here's the zamboni!

The announcer.
...and the "Stanley Cup". 


Love this month was:
  1. Getting coffee each morning from the man. He rocks. There's no other way to put it.
  2. The middle child giving up Java and Coke for Lent. Someone has to pick up the extra caffeine. I'm happy to help.
  3. Sharing something personal with an in-law and getting the kindest response EVER. Seriously. EVER.
  4. Getting a text in the middle of the day from the eldest that says, "I love you, mama."
  5. Getting funny memes and words of encouragement from amazing online friends.
  6. Receiving a surprise gift from my forever friend. 

Thank you, Nick Nack! 

Yep, I'm Asian.
You might have already known that. But, if you had any doubt, check out my red "Mr. Miyagi" painting job. It was the first coat of my sewing room re-do. 
Old room with the dreaded "I don't know what's been on you" carpet.

First coat. Wax on, wax off. Two brushes at the same time.

3 coats later...


Quote of the month: (and a bit of bragging)

To the man and me: "Oh yeah, if you want to come tonight, I might be getting an award."

-said the boy who won First Place in Engineering in the District Senior STEM fair, The Office of Naval Research Award, a Yale Science and Engineering Association Award, and the 2015 Intel International Science and Engineering Award for Sustainability Solutions. You know those times when life gets you down? When being a teenager is really hard? This night told all that negativity where to go.

While I had nothing to do with these awards, I did give birth to that child. Let a mom hold a certificate or two.

Advice of the month from Grams:
When I asked Grandma what keeps her looking so young:
"Walk around with Jesus in your heart. Let that light shine through. Oh, and always wear a long-line bra. In a size that fits, of course, not one that you WANT to fit."
-Thanks Grams.

1. "Hold the phone, people. I forgot. I'm scared of heights."


2. "Just give me a second, Helen. I KNOW I put the Christmas lights somewhere up here."


3. After eight fabulous lives, Tom was finally ready to go toward the light.


4. "Blast the Led Zeppelin, Honey. If this isn't the stairway to heaven, I don't know what is."


5. Tom vowed that this would be the LAST game of "Truth or Dare" he'd ever play with the dog.
