G turned thirteen on Friday. We celebrated with a party G style. G planned for us to:

  1. Go to the movies,

  2. Come home and eat pepperoni pizza (his favorite)

  3. Watch the new episode of iCarly,

  4. Eat cake and open presents

  5. Watch the new Monk episode.

All in all we had a good time. Originally we planned to see Journey to the Center of the Earth in 3-D. When we got to the theater, we found out it wasn't showing in 3-D where we were. For a minute I thought we were going to have a melt down teenage style, then one friend mentioned they had seen Hancock and it was the best movie he had seen all summer AND a show was starting that fit the schedule... so we took the kids to see Hancock. Once we were in, we were surprised by the language. My husband debated taking G and his friends out, but then we would have "ruined" the plan... which would have meant we "ruined" his birthday. So we kept them in and then I apologised to the parents (my friends) who forgave me...

Then it turned out there were back to back episodes of iCarly. So we ended up cutting cake and singing Happy Birthday during a Monk commercial break. G was fine with the schedule changes (flexibility is such a beautiful thing...)

After the festivities G played with his new light saber in the backyard.

In short, it was not a perfect day, but close...

Good Coffee- thats CHEAP!

I can not believe I am writing this. Yesterday I had my first experience with truly good cheap coffee. It's the Wal-Mart brand French Roast made w/ arabica beans its a Medium roast. Don't get me wrong, its not a complex flavor, it won't become an instant favorite... However, it holds its own. You can't beat the price and dare I say its better than Starbucks new house blend...

With gas over $4.00 a gallon, I'll be drinking this for awhile...

Going on Vacation

Well tomorrow I'm going to Tennessee with the kids and Hubbo. We're all having a nice family vacation before the launch of the business. So I've got bubble gum, ear plugs, and all sorts of crunchy foods, as well as a new Star Wars book! All should go well on the flight provided there are no unusual noises or smells... Well noises we can deal with, its the smells that can be a problem. Anyone have any idea on how to handle offensive smells on an airplane???

Please God no weird smells...

I'll be back in two weeks, the website is looking great!
