So you think you wanna be a fly on my wall? You want to know what goes on in my house? Read on… then be sure to click on some of the blogs at the bottom of the post. They need love too! That’s because we all compiled these nice little snippets of our lives into posts and are sharing them simultaneously to give you the ultimate fly experience. It will be like traveling all over the world except different. And less expensive. Certainly less expensive.
So one or two of you might recall my epic screw-up last month when I discovered that it was Fly on the Wall week too close to fake it. Damn it. Normally I’d stay up all night and finish it but that wasn’t happening this time.
You see, the Friday of last Fly on the Wall my husband and I were about to embark upon the celebration of our 15th wedding anniversary. We got to stay overnight without children and got to eat really good food. It was a good night! So I apologize for the lack of fun (for you) as I got to have all the fun to myself (for me).
I also discovered a possible career that night. Think Blogger Vs Fried Ice Cream?
We’ve also had a lot of other things going on this last couple of months…
New school year, new teachers…
They are doing pretty well thus far.
We’ve also had sports, as in the Professor started flag football and Evil Genius was his coach… Because I’m terrified of being sued for using the only good picture of The Professor in football which happened to be the one taken by the professional, here is a picture of The Princess at the football game instead…
The Princess started Girl Scouts this month. You know what that means, right? Her father is actually quite addicted to Thin Mints. Think I’m kidding? I’m not. It’s going to be like having a live in crack dealer come Spring.
Thank goodness she doesn’t sell this stuff… this would get me in trouble.
The Princess spends a lot of time arguing with Daddy these days:
The Princess: “When I grow up, I’m going to be a princess!”
Evil Genius (jokingly): “You’ll never be a princess. And if you are, I’ll burn your kingdom to the ground.”
The Princess (Not joking): “You’ll be dead by then!”
We a little tailgating recently:
I’ve spent a lot of time up late planning things. Then I start thinking (I really need to stop doing that):
What I think of at 11:30 at night-How do stormtroopers go to the bathroom? I would think that wouldn’t be a good career choice for yours truly seeing as being able to pee quickly is very important to me.
Speaking of stormtroopers…
There’s been LOTS of work stuff, which is why I’m insane and have mashed potato brains:
I find it fascinating how much the Professor recalls for someone who barely seems to be paying attention most of the time! Every program we have at the library he is quite the font of wisdom. For example, he knew all about jousting when many other kids had no clue. Guess I’m doing something right?
And we’ve generally been having fun…
Windows 8 should come with chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate. *sob*
Now don’t run away just yet. Click on these blogs for more shenanigans…

NEVER too many pictures!
If you need any help researching the fried ice cream, just let me know, ‘kay?
And it’s good to know that I’m not the only one mulling over random questions late at night. Maybe we need a support group?
Congratulations on making it into the book! That’s wonderful. It looks like you’ve had a busy, amazing month. Never apologize for living your life outside of the computer. Celebrating with your kids and husband, eating good food, watching fun movies and playing at the library. That’s what life is all about. Mmm Cinnamon ice-cream 🙂
CONGRATULATIONS on the book. So well deserved.
I’m totally going with you on the Fried Ice Cream quest. We can start a new blog and document our travels. We could even write a book. What do say? Let me go along . . . please . . .
Congratulations on the book and the anniversary! 😀
Great Pics as always. LOVE fried ice cream and candy corn — I’m an addict too.
I always travel with a spare pair of slippers for my hands?! 😉
You need to make a trip on out here to me in So Cal. We have some INCREDIBLE Mexican Restaurants… I’ve actually never had fried ice cream but I am slightly addicted to chicken tacos.
Congrats on the book!! I can’t wait to read it!
I especially loved the tailgating pic of the kiddos and the pretty girls with their unicorn friends. ❤
You and Michelle are both in the book! So happy for you (and her)!
As for the Princess’s scores, those are outstanding! You are definitely doing something right. 🙂
No such thing as too many pictures!!! Pishhhhhhhhhh
