QUOTE OF THE DAY (OR MORE): "No, no. You don't understand. This is an '89 Calico. I'm pretty sure that exceeds the Kelly Blue Book value. The cat's totaled." --A comedian whose name I forget talking about a vet who presents a $3,000 bill for a 12-year-old cat

The scene: Our drive to school this morning




me: Hey, buddy... ya know... your hair really looks better combed to the side,



rather than all down over your eyes and face like a mop.





13-year-old: whatever. Maybe in the 60s, Mom.


me: I wasn't even alive in the 60s!


13-year-old: whatever.

  3. I love your sketches. When I clicked over here today I thought I'd tell you that, whether you included one in today's post or not.
    You've got some mad artistry skills, and you crack me up with the drawings.

    If there's a poll; I vote side part.

    I love the "did you have TV when you were my age Mom?' question. That's the first sign that I need to make my Botox appointment!

  10. Knock wood, the boys still put on whatever I pick out. The hygiene is still a matter of great contention. Brush teeth *and* hair?!
