Pushing my Buttons

Tonight at dinner I had about had it with the boys’ behavior. I finally turned to Ez and said, “are you trying to push all my buttons?” He then started making electronic button noises and pointing in the air like he was pushing buttons.

(I know not my best parenting moment, but it was too cute not to pass along)


One day last week Matt came home and asked if I had showered and I responded yes and that I had also blow dried my hair.  His response, “I thought you looked pampered.”

Apparently the new definition of pampered in my life means I used my blow dryer!  🙂

friday update. matt edition

“woah halloween is fun. candy is good!” was what we heard tonight from one cute kid while handing out candy. 

This is the matt edition of the friday update. so it’s probably not as in depth as stephanie would be.


same deal as the usual. no sibling referals this week. I think how it feels for us, and i feel bad for who ever is number 1 on the sibling list. they have been waiting a long time, and I hope they are matched with a sibling group soon!

Work outs

Stephanie has been doing lots of walking, and is still rocking on her push ups. Me, i kind of work on them. I have lost some motivation. not sure why, i do like the results so far. I’ve been back cycling on the road bike in wee hours of the dark mornings (with headlights!) a lot this week. I guess my road bike and i just need a relationship break. We are friends again. 


The garden is coming along. Maybe next week some pics may be needed. Things are still alive, and sprouting a bit more. 

Grass is coming in nicely for the winter rye


we carved some mean pumpkins with Steph’s parents & steph’s bro & wife. the results:

Stephanie is funny.

So since Stephanie decided she was allowed to post my skittles comment. I decided I would return the favor by posting this. 

Last night we were discussing that our imac didnt have software to scan. But the lap top did, and it used to be hooked up to the scanner at one point. 

Stephanie refers to this existing connection as: “They are still friends“. 

So that must be straight out of a tech manual right? Yep. An existing software found on a past computer allows said computer to remain friends with any past devices.

I still laugh about it. 


Ahhhh Skittles

“I could’ve spit the rainbow.”
