W hiskey T ango F oxtrot

Okay, so I totally stole that from Meleah, 'cause I loved the sound of it. And it really describes the week I've had. Last weekend was one of the busiest work weekends in a while. I will post pictures, and tell that story in the next post.
Monday night I shut the computer down, and that was the last time it was ever on again. Dead. Completely and totally dead. That Very Expensive Motherboard that, we had put in about 2 months ago, died. No connection to the Internet, and no access to ANYTHING else on the computer. Files, Pictures, TONS of music, my work website stuff, etc. NOTHING. Not a FOXTROT Thing!
The week was looong. The dog is very difficult to train. Or I'm really bad at training and she listens to my husband, but makes me crazy all day. MY RIGHT KICK ASS chocolate-brown-platform-5-inch-heals, (My one and only pair of really HIP shoes) is now shredded. One of my sons pacifiers is buried somewhere in the back yard.
My son peed 1 drop on the potty. Literally. My husband said it's virtually impossible, but my stubborn son managed to do it. 5 minutes later, he practically filled the kiddy potty. That was Wednesday. It hasn't happened again. Obviously this training is going very well too.
Tonight my husband called me on the way home from work, saying he was picking up a new CPU. This is a man who will wear clothes until they are in shreds before he'll spend money. He never shops for himself. I was a little stunned and slightly annoyed, because I'm the type to do as much research about what I'm purchasing and for what price. BUT he came home with a great new CPU. Except that it has Windows Vista. Ehh.
So, I'm back and childless for 2 nights. I have big plans. Big plans indeed. I am going to stain the decks. Front and back. And drink and grill. maybe not in that order though. My parents are taking my kids up to Mahwah NJ to visit my Grandmother, their Great Grandmother. My parents picked them up tonight, and they'll leave mid morning, take my grandmother to lunch and keep them Saturday night. WOW!! I'll miss them though.....
So, I'll further update in the next post. Everyone have a great Memorial Day weekend. I missed you all!!

I'm so jealous of your weekend! Sure you don't want to come borrow a very cute 2-yr old?

chefmom said...

I would borrow that adorable 2 year old anytime! Except this weekend...lol. I just wish I had better plans then staining the deck!

hmmmm...

Drinking and grilling = PERFECT.

No Internet = Flipping Out

Dog Training = Nightmare

Potty Training a BOY? One piece of advice (if I maybe so bold)?

I used to put a few cheerios (yes the cereal) in the bowl to give my son a target to 'shoot' for. Thankfully that tuned into a game that he wanted to play = Potty Training Sucess!

xxoo

Missed you too mama!

PS: WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot was high-jacked from Michael C

Meleah: It was a good weekend. I have heard the cheerio trick works. That's my next attempt then!
And I guess I owe Kudos to Michael C then!

We missed you too! Glad you're back even though things have been crazy!

Michael C said...

Oh it was the computer? I thought I ticked you off because I didn't order my last cake from you. Oh wait. Crap, I didn't say that...

chefmom said...

Michael c: lol! No I wasn't mad. I couldn't ship a cake in the shape of your missing left nipple ;)

meleah rebeccah said...

ROTFLMA @ your conversation with Michael C.

chefmom said...

Mel: That was pretty good wasn't it? I was laughing so hard when I typed it!!!

Michael is straight comedy.
