Hi Julie:

By some lucky twist it has not been that bad. Must be some kind of miracle! :D:D

Although I don't think I'll push my luck on that again!

Thanks for asking. I have missed being on this post, it just has been hard having my daughter so far away, but then I should be on here more often I guess.

What % of the population "gets" that commercial with Andy Roddick?

Who wasn't addicted to it? Wasn't that the "free" game that came with the Atari 2400?

Yup...pretty sure it was the game that we all got with our Atari. PONG. :lol:

I havent seen the Andy Roddick commercial so I dont "get" it at all. :huh:

I'm not sure if they are still airing it. It was out during the US Open. Roddick is walking down the tunnel and his handler says to him, "...watch out for this guy, he returns everything". They walk out onto the court and Roddick sees the white "line" across the net, he looks up at the scoreborad and it says Roddick -v- PONG, then he says "PONG?"

You have to see it for the full effect. (even the vintage sound effects!)

Yea, but does Rachel? She's a lot younger than I am!!

I'll go out on a limb and say that if she spent any amount of time with that Atari, she gets it. Those sound effects just crack me up!

Nikki,

Yes, it's been a better day today. We went down to a carousel that is about 30 minutes south of us. Day delayed birthday fun for Micah.

Mitch is still sore but needs to head to work tomorrow. We wish he could take more time off but he doesn't get sick pay.

My Dad was/is in the hospital again. He went in Wednesday night. He thought he'd be out yesterday but he didn't call. I may have to try and call him again. I posted on the omg thread so forgive the repeat for those that have read over there. They pulled a liter of fluid out of his lungs. He also said his kidney is shot and he will remain on dialysis for the rest of his life. I would strongly suspect that he won't be making any more trips up here. He's in Arizona and we are in Washington. He would usually drive up here 2x per year. Now if I could figure out the money to go down and see him as well as meeting the california gals on the way.....His health isn't that bad yet as far as we know. I'll have to check on prices of stuff out of curiousity. I'd have to take all the kids with me. They'd drive everyone crazy (including me) and wouldn't be restful for my Dad at all. :blink: My mom is on vacation for the next 5 weeks too so she couldn't help with anyone and she's not too terribly concerned about cc issues and such with the kids anyway.

Richard- That photo is PRICELESS!

I would say my wife agrees. She saw what you see there and couldn't pass up the opportunity to preserve it for..."posterity" ;):P:D:lol::lol::lol:

I agree Richard, great picture!

I finally saw the Andy Roddick/Pong commercial, I was watching the Steelers game yesterday and they played it during. Hysterical :lol:

Andrea, sending hugs and smiles your way :)

Molly, be careful! Your air band practice sounds dangerous :lol: I think I missed the post you explained what Air Band was, and you know how scary it is to go back in Rachelville..... We had an Air Band show every year at my high school, we could put a group together and perform to any song, like a lip-syncing showcase, and you could dance or goof around, or both- and they sold tickets to it. By what you describe I am thinking yours is different :lol:

Well, I'm back, and none the worse for wear. I managed to "eduacte"my mother and not get sick.

When I have some time, I will post my whole dining experience in Calagry area establishments in another thread. It will be quite lengthy, and I have to get ready for work.

Glad to see everyone is well.

Hello all!!!

I havent been here in what seems like ages!!! We have gotten so busy lately. I barely get on to read anything anymore.

We are all well here, hope everyone else is too.

We just started mygym yesterday for Colin. He absolutely loved it. He tried to take over the place! He was running all over.. it was like a gold mine for him, as we dont have a lot of space in our house, so the open floor just had him crawling around like a mad man.

We are trying to get ourselves together for our trip to Disney next Friday. We will be staying in my parents house, so I need to get baking to bring down bread and some snacks. It feels so overwhelming just for a vacation. I know most of you have done this already, this is a first for me and I need to sit and put things in perspective.

Other than that, we are all fine!! I hope everyone else is too! I will try to get here a bit more, just to keep up with things! Take care all!

Stephanie

Boy things are busy here! Not sure if I mentioned the big hole at the front of my house...we have a deck off a room at the front and our 5 day project turned into a 3 week epic (mostly because of rotten wood and rain). MIL and I finished resurfacing the deck on Monday - good thing, since it was raining all day Tuesday and cool and overcast Wednesday. We had to put the glue on and decking material in minimum 15c (59F) weather. It was about 22c (71F) when we did it, so that's good. The door and window are in and caulked. Now we have to finish up the door - shims, trim, etc. Then put the siding back on and paint that. Then we move to the inside and put insulation and drywall and window trim inside, paint, etc.

Hockey is going full force with 2 kids in this year, and so far I've been able to get to all the practices. In the past my husband always went to the Sat/Sun practices because I work until midnight and the practices are at 7am usually a minimum 20 minute drive away. I did manage to get to all the games last year.

The strangest thing is that Ty, who I always thought was a "watcher, not a joiner", is joining everything! Beavers, hockey and at school Junior Choir (which was expected) and Running Club. Running Club! I asked if the permission slip was a joke because he usually has the same attitude about running as me - you need only run if something is chasing you! It's great. Lots of the moms and a couple of teachers have mentioned how he's really come out of his shell and is so much more energetic this past year that he's been on the diet.

That's all. I'd best get at that pile of laundry. I wish the dog would help with the folding.

Stephanie,

Have a great time on vacation. Planning is always tiring isn't it....not to mention taking stuff you can eat.

Linda,

Wow, you're making me tired and I haven't been up very long. Seth and I have been lazy the last two days. :P If you manage to train your dog to help with the laundry then can I borrow him/her to help pull weeds?
