monday randoms.

first of all, i would just like to say that tomorrow is the most wonderful time of the year: it's the first day of school! this was my first summer at home with the kids {i quit working near the end of last summer}. i think we had a very full & very fun summer.

this is the only picture i have from the weekend that hurricane irene visited us:

{excuse the mess behind him...i was doing some household purging.}

that same sweet boy pictured above said to me last week, "mom, wouldn't it be cool if i could fart money?" yes, it would, son. oh, would.

oh, wait, i lied. i do have another photo from hurricane irene weekend. i'm sure you all have seen this yo-yo by now {be warned, i opted against to putting a star over his wee-wee}:

{picture is from a friend's facebook page}

adam & i have decided not to have a 10th wedding anniversary party this coming february. i think we're going to the daytona 500 instead. nothing says i love you like stock cars, a beer buzz & a gazillion race fans. {personally, i'm still hoping for a new diamond...he just doesn't know that...yet.}

i'm really hoping that the algebra class i'm taking this semester doesn't kick my booty. of course, since it's an undergrad level class, all i need is a passing grade of a c or better. c = credit! ha ha!

speaking of grad school, i had an unfortunate altercation, if you will, at my local campus bookstore. apparently, buying a book {to use for one homework assignment that's due today because the copy i purchased elsewhere has not arrived yet in the mail} & then returning the book is a violation of the university's honor code. she said it was like buying a dress, wearing the dress & then returning the dress. the cashier basically told me that i'm committing fraud against the school & that she was going to turn me in to the honor council. my friend, lis, was with me when this happened. she {as well as i} couldn't believe what she was hearing. she also got to witness - first-hand - michelle going apeshit {yes, i just referred to myself in the third person}.* 

speaking of going apeshit, here lately aidan keeps telling the dogs to stop going asap. i keep telling him that asap means something else & doesn't make any sense the way he's using it. and then, it hit me. going asap = going apeshit. i guess i need to stop saying apeshit around him.

about a month & a half ago, my mother-in-law gave us two moonflower sprouts. because it is a vine, we have it growing up & around two tomato cages that are tethered together. last friday evening, we noticed our first bloom:

is it just me or do you think the year is going by a little too quickly? i can't believe it's september already. that being said, my birthday is in less than two weeks. not that i'm counting down the days or anything. 

stay tuned for more random stuff...random seems to work well for me. i hope you all are enjoying your holiday weekend!!

*just so you know, i called the main bookstore at my university and spoke to the assistant director {a.k.a. that mean lady's boss} and he apologized profusely for her actions. i hope i don't have any more run-ins with that insensitive, no couth having meanie.

Your kids crack me up. I love it!

And I think anyone who wants to show his tiny wee wee on national tv doesn't deserve a star.

Your son is SOOO cute! Ok, so this psycho at the book store? ummm that's crazy. And.. hello, most schools let you SELL your books back at the end of the semester, so what's the difference? Glad it worked out ok!
