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!

*We were less than healthy this month. Though I joke, please know that I do feed my children real food.
This year I had a zombie pirate and (because he had to have a costume for a band concert,) a cardboard spartan.
Someone that lives here said,: "I hope we don't have many trick-or-treaters."
C. : (texting sarcastically from work) "Things are on sale. All of these women are coming through with bags of potatoes and fruit and frozen turkeys...What's going on? Should you be doing this?"
Me: "Young son, those are the people that I tell you about before you go to bed. The ones who cook. We will be needing none of that."
C. : "Cake mix is on sale too."
Me: I'll be there in ten minutes."
***Alex: (texting): "Apparently, people in the real world have to make their own sweets. Being an adult is not fun at all."
Me: "Come over here. I made a cinnamon cake last night and I'm the only one eating it."
Alex: "You are SO lucky."
Me: "This is why I miss you. No one gets excited about cake around here."
Alex: "It's because they don't know what it's like to go without it."
***The man: (pretending to wipe his eye) "C. brought me a bucket of buttered popcorn from the movie theater. He just gets me."
Is it only at our house? (Quotes)
"Am I the only one having a problem with 6 empty cans of pop and a half-eaten loaf of french bread on the air-hockey table?"
"This time change is awful. Does anyone else want to go directly to bed after dinner?"
"The dogs are impatiently waiting at the dryer to get warm sweaters."
"There's enough dog hair in the lint catcher to make a small sweater...and I'm considering making one."
"Did you know you can stand in one room and see a Halloween pumpkin, a Thanksgiving branch AND a Christmas tree?"
"You know what's disturbing? You complain that I snore, yet the only setting on your sleep machine working for you is 'Trains'."
"You know life's going downhill when you ask for underwear and socks for Christmas."
Convos of the month:
Alex: (texting) "FIVE!"
Me: (confused) "dollar footlong?"
Alex: "The number of times I submitted my comment on your blog before it showed up."
Me: " Thanks for your unwillingness to give up."
Alex: "It's a good thing I love you. Copy and Paste and your blog go well together."
The man: "Did you get the results from the doctor yet?"
Me: "No... But..."
The Man: "But what?"
Me: "She ordered 3 bags from my shop."
The Man: "Well THAT can't be good..."
*note- It was all good.
The youngest has a future in business:
He creates a soda drink menu and gives it to his brother.
Mountain Dew is 5 cents.
Mountain Dew is the middle child's favorite soda. He has braces, though, so he's not allowed to drink it without a straw.
He explains this to the youngest.
The youngest then flips over the menu.

Happy Friday, Friends
