The Kitchen!

A while back I posted about the agony of our kitchen remodel, and just realized that I never followed up with the finished product! Well, allow me to present ... The New Kitchen!

Note the wine rack, a gift from Jesus. He keeps it stocked for me, too.

Maybe that's not a fact I should advertise.

But I bet my fellow "OMG I so need a glass of wine or I'm going to sell my kids" members will appreciate it :)

I See Where This is Going

Also filed under: Parent of the Year

When I got home from work, I saw these on the kitchen table.

Somehow I just knew they were Isaiah's. So I asked my darling husband where those came from, and sure enough, Isaiah saw them at the store and asked for them. Of course, right now he thinks they're test tubes, and he enjoyed pouring Gatorade and Kool Aid in them.

But I see where this is going. His college years will not be good to me, will they?

Children, or, Why I Have Grey Hair

We have VoIP, because we're cool and we hate AT&T. (Hipster disclaimer, I hated AT&T back when it was SBC)

The bill is a fixed amount each month, until last month, when it was almost double. What the...? I look up the usage and find a few looong phone calls to some number in Portland. *I* don't know anyone in Portland. *Hubs* doesn't know anyone in Portland.

Oh, and the calls were made around 1am each time.

A quick look at Daimean's FB friends reveals a young woman in Portland. Whom he'd been calling at 1am to chat up. Oddly, my first response wasn't, "Why are you calling some girl in Portland at 1am?!" but rather, "Why the heck didn't you use your cell phone?! You have tons of minutes there!"
