Wow so many mom's stories...
We've posted stuff on one of the boys already. It is good to see there mom's do something for them.

Today: I've got to go out... just because it will be 60 deg.... yes I said 60!
(It is going to be 32 in a few days... yuck)

The other reason is to get a piece of hardware for the toilet. Somebitch broke last night...

My wife goes into surgery this week... I can tell you I am not looking forward to it... or the long recovery that comes with it.

Anyway I am going to go... have a nice day 'eh.
