wellllll. heres whats up. i came home from hawaii a bit early... their mom had to go to bermuda, so the kids went to the mainland to their grandparents house for two weeks. so i got to come home early :) yes..'got to'...i missed everyone so much. and i can't tell you how happy i am to be home and not watching Sid the Science kid.. or curious george.. or martha speaks..mannnn. i forgot how annoying those theme songs get. what ever happened to arthur? those were the days. when 'gogurts' didn't exist, and only peanut butter sammys on wheat bread existed.
saying bye was a wee bit sad..but hey. i'll never have to catch them peeing in inappropriate places again. yahtzee.
