A Shout Out

My friend Alison started a blog to write all about her love of running.  Why are we friends, you ask?  In all honestly, I don't know.  

  • She runs. I run after my kids and/or if someone is chasing me.  
  • She's a Mizzou fan. I married into the Cult of the Jayhawk.  
  • She gets to buy adorable girl clothes and I'm stuck in boy town. (She does have one boy, but he's outnumbered by his sisters.)  
Despite all this, I like her.

If you want to cyber stalk Alison, here's the link:  Http://

I plan to follow along from the safety and comfort of my couch.  Probably with a cookie in hand.

Please note:

When sequestration takes effect, the mini-industry known as Wayne Manor will be forced to make furloughs.  The following will be laid off:

- Nelly and her crew of three.
- Rolando and his assistant
- The hardscaping crew will not be retained for our $40,000 project.
- Solange will be cut back to 4 days per week.

While these cuts are not huge on a national scale, I have to think that Nelly, Rolando, Solange, the landscapers and the people they employ will think otherwise.

Robin was home sick on Friday. We were cuddled on the couch watching tv when a jewelry commercial came on. He asked me if I liked a ring and I said yes, it’s so pretty. 

He said if he has enough money in his allowance he would buy it. I asked if it would be a Valentine’s Day present for me. He said no, for Kristina. I said, Kristina!?! Why not mommy? He said that she was the best girl in his class.

Great. Four years old and he's already tossing me to the side for some cute girl.

Happy VD, bitches!
