1. I would apologize (again) for being such a sucker to reality tv, but alas, I know I'm not alone and perhpas it's better than reading Spiderman Returns for a 457th time. I said perhaps.

2. Here's a fun fashion quiz to give the man in your life. I gave it to Wes and actually thought he'd know some of the answers. He knew one. His response, "What hetro-sexual man would know any of these answers? Ask me what a belt is, I know that one."
3. Which is worse - cleaning poop out of tiny toddler's underwear or hearing backtalk from a teenager? I don't know, you tell me. I'm still trying to determine which I prefer. I can tell you poo is not at the top of my list these days! Thankfully, I have a while to wait for the proper comparison!

Truth is, the fresh air often cleared my mind enough that I was able to think of something to do. In case running around your house isn't an option for you or you "bored" child, here are 7 Tips to Fight the Deadly Feeling of Boredom.
5. So proud of my niece and the rest of her team being runner-up in the 11th Region. She was named to the All-Tournament Team as an 8th grader! Way to go, Kiara!
