The No Good Very Bad Dog and Other Tales

I left the room for ten minutes...TEN MINUTES!

Is it just me or does it look like she's laughing at me?

Speaking of cars, Wes is stranded out of town tonight. (Do you like how I made that completely random segue?) His SUV started smoking and clunking. Pretty sure that's not good. I think it's an evil, progressive plot to lure us into participating in the Cash For Clunkers program. We're standing firm!

And much poorer.

I'm up to my eyeballs in quadrangles. Caitlin had 4 pages of math homework tonight. The first problem said to draw a line segment AB. Caitlin exclaimed happily, " I LOVE line segments!" I'm afraid this enthusiam is going to wear off rather quickly.

I'm also up to my eyeballs in simplifying algebraic expressions. What I used to call order of operations they now have a nifty acronym for...PEMDAS. Huh. Why didn't we think of that? Of course, it took fifteen minutes and a really confusing conversation with Hayley for us to figure out we were talking about the same thing.

I have been to the gym at 5:30 AM two days in a row!

I'll wait while you pick up your jaw from the floor.

But I'm suffering major sleep deprivation which doesn't really help my rusty math skills.

Or my patience with no good very bad dogs.

Night-night, interpeeps.

so what's wrong with Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally?! Have we offended the "aunt Sally's" of the world and we're no longer allowed to say it without paying her portion of proceeds or giving her proper credit??!! ;)

Man, are we living the same life? (Minus the 2 girls and higher math?)

What is it w/ dogs and toilet paper!! UGH! Mine does it too..we no longer even keep it on the roll...just sits on the counter, homeless.

So sorry about the car...I may be dragging my kids out at 5am to go pick Adam up from work...he had the car towed to the job site (which is already 70 miles from our house) because it was cheaper!!

Praying that your hubby's car won't make you have to give your firstborn...hang in there!!

Naughty, naughty dog!

Aaaah, the joys of math. And the joys of dealing with teenage girls. Do not envy you there, Lisa.

I've been wanting a dog. Thank you for curing me.

We're living the same life this week...
the dog and the PEMDAS.

Not the car stuff or the line segments (thank God!).

Hang in there. Hope Wes' car recovers with little stress on your wallet.

Lori said...
