A few little pumpkins from our front porch.

After a night out with a bunch of friends and getting home at 1:00 A.M., hubby and I don't want a phone call at 7:30 A.M. on a weekend asking to borrow something unless it is an emergency. It doesn't matter if you saw our dog in the backyard for a split second so he could go to the bathroom, that doesn't mean we're up and around. You silly, silly neighbor.
With the phone ringing right by my bed and hearing hubby talking quietly and getting up to make his way downstairs to get the sour cream, I'm awake for now. With hearing your knock at the door and your voice as clear as can be, I'm awake for good now. (I'm not grumpy. hehe)
I would never, ever call anyone this early to borrow something. So next time, please just make your way to the 24 hour Wal-Mart that is five minutes away or wait until a decent time to call. I value my precious sleep, especially on the weekends!!
I think this was his sweet revenge for one party we had this summer when we were a little inconsiderate and hung out in our backyard until 11:15 p.m. with the men playing some game with bean bags and drinking a few cocktails. We had to hear about it for the next two weeks afterwards. (And the neighbors didn't get home until 10:30 that night anyway. We would have welcomed them to join in.)

All the I-pods are gone in the house except for Mr. T's and there is no way I'm listening to his music. So found myself turning on the CD player, which by the looks of it, hasn't been used in a long, long time. It's hidden in the entertainment center and the top of it was covered in dust. The only thing that was in the CD player was Christmas CD's - a little Country mix, Mariah, Harry Connick Jr. and Jessica Simpson.
Girlfriend calls...hears music in the background and asks "What are you listening to"? Christmas music, you heard right. I have to admit, I'm loving every minute of it.

As soon as he gets in the SUV, the hockey odor is overwhelming. Even before we get out of the parking lot, I have to crack open a window. I open his and he asks me to roll it up because he's chilly. (He's worried about being chilly where I'm just trying not to pass out.) I try to handle the stench but every few minutes I have to crack a window and breath in some fresh air. I felt a headache coming on (I kid you not) so I finally roll down my window and leave it. Mr. T says "Mom, can't you smell that horrible skunk smell?". I'm thinking it smells pretty darn good compared to the odor in the car. Can you believe it? I would rather have the window down with chilly temperatures and smell the odor from a skunk than have to be consumed by hockey stink. Will I ever get used to the smell?!!!! (According to my boys, I'm a wimp!)

Thank you to Grove Gal K and Grove Gal E for the lovely surprise. Now I just have to make sure my kiddies don't try to use it because this one is all for Mommy.
