I couldn't possibly make this sh*t up.

I hope I get a harmonica

Who loves Adam Sandler? We do! I forgot it was the first day of Hanukkah but coincidentally woke up singing his Hanukkah song. Obnoxiously, and changing the lyrics as I pleased.

me: So drink your gin and tonica…

Jack: Mom. Just. No.

me: (making breakfast) Jack today’s the first day of Hanukkah for real, so how funny that i woke up singing that song.

Jack: Yes, how Ironica.

me: 😳

On that note, have a happy Hanukkah everyone!

Funny Jokes

Is that redundant? LOL. Jack and I were driving to school this morning, we missed the bus, sort of on purpose. The alarm went off and I just didn’t want to get up. So I shut it off and pretended that we had a power outage ha ha. But of course cats and dogs have their internal clocks and they won’t let me sleep very long. 😦

Quick update on cats and dogs… Moca caught the lovely virus, or parasite rather, Giardia. This was right before Thanksgiving, and she’s only just now gotten slightly better. Talk about a skinny dog OMG. And Bella went in for dental surgery on Monday so she is in a little bit of pain this week and not eating well… as you could expect.

Jack broke his foot again for the second time, or toe rather, same foot same break same spot same everything.

My house is like an infirmary, the morning routine goes like this, feed the cat, feed the dog, feed the boy, give the cat liquid pain medicine, give the dog one and a half pills for tummy troubles, wrap the boys toe, wipe the dogs foot and other toe because she also has an infection LOL, makes probiotic in the dogs lunch so that the dog walker can feed that to her at noon, repeat.

But it’s the season of CHEER I tell you! Perpetual hope! I’m still smiling.

So, we were driving to school and I was listening to Christmas music and being goofy and telling dumb jokes, and laughing at them by myself naturally.

Jack: that’s not funny.

Me: what? You mean my joke? Oh I get it, it’s not funny because no one’s laughing.

Jack: no, it’s not funny because you don’t know how to tell a joke.

Me: Sigh.

Liquid Cats

me: Check out this picture I saw on Facebook! Haha.

Jack: Liquids take the shape of the container they’re poured into. Therefore cats are liquid.

Half-scale Tissue Box

Words I never thought I’d type in the same sentence haha.

I found this box in my office at work and laughed. Everyone always commented on the mini tissue box and it’s been here for months… maybe even since last summer. I can’t quite remember when jack made it.

I move it from surface to surface when I clean. Very rare indeed. And today I moved it again and happened to look at the bottom.

Too funny. Jack has a great sense of humor and he always cracks me up. I’m still working on getting him to use his powers for good! Not evil! 🙂

I recently went to his school conferences and each teacher pretty much had the exact same story to tell:

Jack is a very good student and a lot of fun to have in class. He seems to really enjoy learning and participates quite frequently. He’s known for his humor and one-liners, and if something comical is going on, Jack is probably in the middle of it. We moved his seat so that he wasn’t so centrally located and his friends were moved to the other side. Jack is very smart and does the work very quickly. He might be a bit distracting when he finishes so we are working on having Jim slow down a bit.

me: Jack, I told them to give you another assignment if you complete your work that fast….

Jack: What? How come? I’m smart enough to get it done quick so I shouldn’t get punished.

me: Well… you can’t distract the other kids that need the extra time to do their work.

Jack: That’s not fair.

me: It was sort of a joke so I don’t really think they’ll do that. But all your teachers really like having you in class.

Jack: That’s because I’m likable.

me: And modest.

Quote of the day – Stranger Things

You should get this. If not you’re falling behind.

Jack: Oh no not Hopper! I don’t want him to die, I like him!

me: He won’t die, he’s a main character.

Jack: I want Eggo waffles.

me: Me too.

If you haven’t started the Stranger Things series on Netflix, go ahead and start it!

I have the actual China set from 1984 🙂

And I promise you there will soon be Eggos in your freezer and the Clash blasting from your Walkman.

Cold Weather Makes Things Scarier

Doesn’t it?

Are you scared on a balmy summer evening as you stroll down the street in your neighborhood, looking at the moon and watching for that first star to show itself so you can make a wish. You hear the crickets and the frogs chirping… the sounds of children laughing in the distance as they take one last dip into the pool.

Nah. Nothing scary about that.

Now drop the temperature 50 degrees, add a little wind, some dry leaves scuttling across the pavement, leafless tree branches clacking together like the dried brittle bones of a lonely wandering skeleton, a dog barking in the distance, a twig snaps in the woods nearby…you get the idea…

Jack and I were out on a walk with Moca, it was dark and we carried flashlights. The moon was pretty bright so we turned off the flashlights to let our eyes adjust so we could enjoy the darkness.

me: Are you ready for Halloween next week?

Jack: I need a costume but other than that, yeah.

me: I hope it doesn’t get too cold … I hate walking around freezing my butt off.

Jack: I don’t want it to be freezing because then you can’t even see your costume, but I don’t want it to be warm either. The cold makes everything seem scarier!

He shivered a little with the thought, and I had to agree. The cold Fall weather and longer darker nights make it prime time for some good scares. We will definitely watch some classic scary movies this weekend and into next week. We just finished the original IT by Stephen King what are some of your go-to scary movies? Comment and let us know!

Can’t catch a break

I just wanted to borrow Jack’s charger for 5 minutes. AFTER I baked him cookies even!

Sheesh.

Jack:

Written on his fancy travel pad probably from Hawaii 😉
