What do you do for FUN in Lamar on a Friday night? 

Why, make a tent in the living room, of course!

Great start to the day 

I stayed up later than usual last night because as I was looking over an ARC/proof copy of King's Rose Madder that I want to sell, in sucked me into reading about a third of it. Barely escaped w/sanity semi-intact, etc.

Mike came in to my room about 10 with a burning question. Was it okay if he moved my big black chair in the living room, with all the stuff piled on it?

He wanted to sweep under it so he could mop the floor.

Yes, after three days of pre-teen angst and recalcitrance, the sun has come out and Mr. Happy Mike is back! Was it the 2/3s of a cake he ate for breakfast at dawn? Who knows? Who cares?

Then when I finally got settled to read my email and the on-line New York Times, I learn THIS!

"on Nov. 16, all 45 episodes of "Pee-wee's Playhouse" will be released on DVD for the first time."

There is still some good left in the world.

Life staggers on 

Mike has gotten into a stage where he is performing experiments on everyday household objects. Knowing he is doing so to learn about his environment because he has reached that mental stage in his development does not quite offset my angst about pretty nearly every one ending in me screaming, "YAAAAAAA! MIKE, why did you DO that?!?!?"

Here's a little household tip. It's not a very good idea to put the toilet paper in the TOP tank for disposal.
