This and That

Remember my declaration that I was going to go all Super Nanny on my kids and create a list? Well I did tonight. It's a "House Rules" list. It's a list of things that the kids MUST comply with, such as "no running in the house" and "use an INDOOR voice". They aren't incredibly difficult rules, but such simple, basic things that my kids JUST DON'T GET that having it in writing may help. If they break a rule, they get a timeout. And damnit, if this doesn't work, I'm calling Jo Frost herself to straighten them out.


I need a book to read. I am supposed to be reading Mike Lowell's book (Red Sox 3rd baseman who looks like my husband) but I need something else to read at the same time. I love mysteries. Any suggestions?


I am all over the place today. I stayed up until midnight watching the All Star game (J.D. Drew rocks!) for no reason other than it was on tv. Then I got up to a vomiting child for the 2nd day in a row. Poor little Drew has viral gastroenteritis and just can't keep anything other than water in his body. Dragged him to the doctor today to make sure he didn't have a blockage or anything like that. Can't wait for the sickness to go away.


Argh, I don't have anything else to say (Auntie Nettie, shush!).

Ugh. Sick kids - poor guy!

Go buy any paperback by Harlan Coben. You will love me. (just be careful because he has one series with one character and you'd want to start at the beginning, so just buy one that isn't a Myron novel)

I recommend Tell No One - they made a movie of it in France.

I'm hoping that Drew is feeling better and that you had a great day.

That's a great idea to make an official list. My mom's a teacher and she does that. Then she can Refer To The List when needed.

If you like mysteries, you probably already know the ones I like: Agatha Christie and Jeffery Deaver.

Viral gastroenteritis bites the big one. Good luck with that.

Projectile vomit on the DAD!!!!! Awesome!!! :)

Hmmm... a mystery.... I don't really read mysteries, sorry! I'm currently reading the Twilight series, which is actually a teen thing, but like Harry Potter is just as good for adults. It has vampires and werewolves in it (I know, I know), which I don't usually read AT ALL, but another woman in my mom's group was raving about them, so I figured I'd go to the library, and OMG. Awesome.
