Sleep Tight, Mommy Loves You

What are you dreaming of little mogwai?
I'm wondering
How can such loud shrieks come from such tiny lips?
The hardest part of being a work-out-of-home mom is having to sometimes come home late. There are days when I leave for work before most of the kids are awake and come home when they're already asleep. I miss the dinner table chat, the scurry to get into pajamas, brush teeth and the "good night mommy". I don't know how many times I've stood in front of a room full of parents urging them to spend quality time reading and talking with their children and then make the dark and lonely drive home to my own children who I've spent little or no time with that day.

"What Happens in Saipan Sprays in Saipan"
Dinner table privileges are great, especially when shared with scrumptious food and stimulating conversation. Tony and I had a delicious post-Thanksgiving dinner date with good friends who will remain nameless lest they choose to identify themselves. The culinary theme: nuts. The evening conversation: juicy. Thanks for the fun evening and the company guys!

Rachel Ray, you disappoint meThis is the Rachel Ray garbage bowl. I guess she figures you can save time cooking with her recipes so you won't notice getting suckered into wasting your money on a granite bowl to throw your trash in. I'm not making this up. You can buy it almost anywhere for about $20. It's on the gift lists of many a Food Network Chef-wanna-be. What has this world come to? Next thing you know, we'll be selling Sandra Lee's Semi-homemade Strapless Bras.

Boni, I have zero problems when I read your blog on my laptop, which is pretty new.

...but when I was using older computers while on vacation, your site would freeze up the computers almost every time.

I think people using older, less powerful computers are the ones with the problems.

When you log on Boni's blog just sit back, take a 2 minute break and wait for it to reload. When this happens you are free to scroll, if you try it any other way it will freeze as Angelo had experianced. So grab a drink or snack and just give it a little time you'll then be OK.

I'm glad you guys are all commenting on how ridiculous the garbage bowl is and how peaceful Sommer can look when she's not wreaking havoc, and not on the ridiculous slowness of my page loading. I've said it before, and Glen has concurred, my page is easy going. Stop rushing!

Sweet little girl. And don't get me started on the garbage bowl!

i notice if i try with explorer it will freeze up but firefox no problemmo.

Nope, I have a decent year and a half old laptop on the slowest internet connection anywhere (I am in Mongolia), but BoReGo loads up right fast. Randy Steele's with the massive front picture takes more time, but I usually fly right by it, to the hard core, same with Glenns.

Boni, I have that faux granite bowl, I used it with salads for years. Are we dead yet?

Boni said...

Salad belongs in bowls, not garbage, and not for $20.

Okay, Boni... Once again, your last paragraph belongs on stage. Bring the props and demonstrate. You're really good.
