And so, with it being Monday I'll have you all know that I survived not one but THREE sleepovers this past week.

Can I say here, without sounding too weird, that eleven year old boys are kind of awesome? (When they aren't acting like their parents owe them uber-expensive birthday presents)

They play and they laugh themselves silly and shout out random phrases that are mildly annoying - until you hear the laughter. They make fart noises late into the night, giggling themselves right off the bed.

Also, the amount of gatorade they consume? It boggles the mind.

I've been watching Survivor and um, just wanted to let you all know that I'm not at all happy with the the all girl alliance thing they've got going. Ugh, I can't imagine anything worse than being stuck in that type of situation with bitchy girls who think they're the shit. Poor James.

What I haven't been watching, at least since last week? The Red Sox. Seems like I haven't missed too much.

It kind of irks me when a mom, who lets her son watch any and ALL war movies - from Braveheart to Saving Private Ryan - kind of gives me the "ohmygosh NO" when I ask if it's okay for him to play Ghost Squad with three other boys on the Wii.
Okay then.

Tonight is the boy's last hockey practice until August. The girl? She starts skating on Saturday. No rest for the wicked.

But I do have yummy Tek-ish Sox photos on my blog, taken from my lower box seat at yesterday's game. If you click into the link for the entire album, there's a couple of Speedy McEllsbury in there too. ;-)

Megan and my granfather were watching the Sox tonight well of course they were they're playing Toronto, and now that Megan went to Toronto watched the game she's all over baseball :) Or I guess I should say sitting down to enjoy a snack while watching baseball. haha.

WOW to the movie/game thing.. people are really weird when it comes to what they let their kids watch and what they let their kids do eh? I'm all worried about Nims Island which we're suppose to take the kids to on Saturday. It says "frightening scenes" but nothing in the trailer suggested to me that it was no more frightening then when Nemo's Mom died!

Connor had his first sleepover last weekend. When you say sleepovers how many kids are sleeping over at one time? And you had THREE nights over! WOW! I don't think I could handle more then one!

A little note to .. blackbird ..

Your 17 year old is less than 1 yr. away from BEING Pvt. Ryan. Maybe he OUGHT to see this movie. There is a war going on , whether we like it or not.
