We are going to get kicked out

My husband doesn't swear on a daily basis but if he is trying to fix something or watching his Browns football team play then some swear words definitely come flying out. He is quickly learning that he has got to watch it. He yelled Jesus Christ the other day in a temper and now the boys are saying it constantly. It is almost a week later and they still walk around the house and occassionally say it.

I am trying my best to turn it around and say some quick prayers several times a day like "Dear God, Thank you for our cars. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen" so they will try and say Jesus Christ in a nice manner. It doesn't seem to be working. They go to a Christian preschool so I'm just waiting to be pulled aside when I drop them off or pick them up. Ugh....

My husband quickly changed things up on Sunday after watching the Browns fumble the ball. The boys were luckily in the other room but he yelled the F word really loud. Then he comes out of the media room and says loudly over and over "Quack Quack like a DUCK! Quack Quack like a DUCK! Luckily they didn't pick up that new word. :-) Let's see if my husband learns to hold his tongue.

New York

We had so much fun! Went to great restaurants and had great conversations. Loved Spice Market and Po. I really relate to these girls. Love talking about politics, kids, cooking, etc. It was especially nice that it wasn't all husband bashing. I have been in groups where that is the running conversation. We really had a great time and have lots of new stories!

New York

I am so excited. I leave tomorrow for a girls trip to NYC. I lived in NY for 3 years after college. The girls I am meeting and I all worked in the same dept back in the big days of AIG. We were the only women for a little while so we got very close. I haven't seen them in over 5 years. The strange thing is that 3 out of the 4 of us had twin boys (without fertility drugs). It must have been the water there, right?? :-)

We have all remained good friends and stayed in touch so I'm excited to finally get together again! I'll have to tell you afterwards about the fancy places we are going to eat at. The girls made reservations months in advance at all the top/hip places. I had to go shopping...I didn't think my Ann Taylor Loft t-shirts were going to cut it. Ha Ha.
