Bits And Pieces

My husband is threatening to take me on vacation!

Most people would be thrilled... not me. If you know me, you know that I don't like to leave my children. They need me. I need them. I'm not kidding. He's threatening to make plans, find someone to watch the kids, and take me away for a few days..... and I am freaking out! 

I told him if he waits 3 1/2 years I will gladly go. Yes. I said 3 1/2 years. Then Alyssa will be 5 and pretty much be able to take care of herself.

The husband thought it was a joke. It was not. So now I have to live in fear of my husband taking me on vacation.


On another note, I can now add something new to the list of things Alyssa has broken... my flip. I'm so mad. It was charging in the usb port when she decided to pull it out and mangle it. It actually still works, but the usb plug is broken and can't close. Thanks a lot, Alyssa. I think I have to send it back to the company, so they can fix it. They are supposed to call me tomorrow to let me know that it's gonna cost as much or more than buying a new one  how much it will cost to fix it. Again, thanks Alyssa.


So, I think I might need to buy a trampoline for my backyard. I know that they are dangerous, I know that I will then be giving an invite to every single kid in our neighborhood to come over and jump on it (I know this cuz we do it to my neighbor), but I think my kids will love it! 

Check out Alyssa on my Mom's little trampoline:

See how tired she was getting from all that jumping....  more time on the trampoline... less time breaking things in my house.... might be a good thing.


  1. ive been thinking of buying a trampoline for a while now. but then i keep telling myself that im crazy for even thinking about it.

  2. if you don't let jon take you on vacation, i'm gonna let him take me on one instead!

  3. Rayli - what the hell is wrong with you?

    First - why were you up at 4 in the morning?

    Second - why in heavens name would you not take a vacation?

    If I had a backyard, I would buy a trampoline (for me though). Just get the one with the net.
