spring cleaning

Today was brilliant. Perfect day for spring cleaning, working 'round the house and yard as a family, taking a picture or two, and following it all up with an "insanely delicious" Bruschetta Chicken sandwich at Red Robin. Too bad 'the family' didn't agree with the spring cleaning part... things look great around the little farm even if not done with completely happy hearts.

Quote of the day. Said 15 year old son with learner's permit to mom who told him to relax while driving: "You know, I could pull over right here and you could walk home." Point proved, if you ask me. :)

Last week I saw a woman talking on her cell phone drive off from the gas station with the hose still inserted in her van. She jerked the hose completely off the pump, coming to a shocked stop after the nozzle crashed loudly to the ground. Fortunately, the pump has an emergency shut off valve. Hang up and DRIVE people.

Available: 1 year old miniature American Eskimo dog. Owner loves but is allergic. Very happy, friendly disposition. Basic training completed, knows fun tricks. Plays well with large breeds. Needs practice greeting visitors. Owner's children would like visitation rights. Call now and I'll connect you with Frostfur's loving family to start the adoption process.

Pictures from the Portland underground tour last weekend - Shanghai tunnels, stories of unsavory characters (is that one I see below?), white slavers, ghost stories; the seedy side of the Rose City. Nice way to spend an afternoon with kids and friends. If you decide to go, let me know what you think the dead girl's perfume is - if you can smell it, that is.

Dear Trustees,
The Suburban needs its own set of jumper cables.

And, guess who turned 18 with attitude?


  • Spring cleaning indeed! We boxed up stuff (and some going to Goodwill)in the livingroom and started our paint and floor project on Friday. Wish we could've enjoyed the sunshine more than we did though. The kids got to go outside and play with the neighbor boys and Lizzie is perfecting her new riding skills on her new big girl bike!!

  • Oh the joys of spring, Christie! I mentioned to Steve that we're painting our bedroom this summer. He said, "We are?" At least you can have the windows open and hear the sounds of spring while you work.

  • Yes, that is for sure! We've had the windows wide open all weekend. It was so nice! And hearing the kids outside playing and having fun is a sure sign also. After being cooped up all winter, it's about time they can go out and play.
