The Boys (and girls) Are Back In Town



After a LONG week of microwaved pizza, falling asleep with the tv on, and only the Red Sox games to keep my mind occupied, Ang and the kids came home from the beach today.

Ciera burst through the door to give me a hug, and Rakes and Trot were close behind. I knew I missed them, but until I picked them up and hugged their necks, I had no idea how much.

They all came back pretty much the same as when they left: except for Trot. He's now acting like that kid from the movie "Parenthood" who bangs his head against stuff all the time. So far, the ottoman, the floor, my leg, and a hope chest have taken a beating while he laughs like some little maniac.

Rakes gave me a blow by blow account of the vist to Medevil Times: "dey rode deir horses doing neigh, neigh, and dey bight wit deir dords Dad, and DEN dey go AAUUGH and ball down", all while swinging two plastic swords over his head like The Rock in "The Scorpion King".

Ciera made out the best: her Aunt took her for a manicure/pedicure, her Mom took her shopping for school clothes, and her Grandparents spoiled her like their was no tomorrow. Personally, I think they were just so happy that one of the three kids didn't act like an escapee from a mental institution they didn't know what to do.

As for Angie, I think she had a good time and I think she's glad to be home: even with all the help, it's hard to do by yourself when you are used to working as the married version of the Rock-n-Roll Express.

Me? While I enjoyed the single life for a week, I'm glad the house is back to being filled with noise, yelling, running, and laughter.

In fact, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Yeah, I know Carol: story of my life. A day late and a dollar short.

GO SOX!

C-CITGO said...

Make that a day late, and millions of dollars short LOL

Welcome home boys & girls!

Mattie said...

Ted couldn't be Ray. He's more like Robert: forever jealous of mom's favorite.

That'd be me.

Glad the kids are alright, bro. I know you're beside yourself having them home. Enjoy the cacophony!

Ted D said...

Listen grizzly adams, aren't you supposed to be preparing your science kit for the mountains?

Thanks Carol: it's good to have them home.

Not so good? Washburn getting Papi AND Manny to strike out in the first. It's Jared Washburn guys: check yourself.

"Ted couldn't be Ray. He's more like Robert: forever jealous of mom's favorite. That'd be me."

Little brown noser.

C-CITGO said...

All of the chocolate cake will be for the brown noser if you keep it up Robbie ;)

Ted D said...

Carol, you know you are just encouraging him, right? ;)

Mattie said...

See Ted, they all see it. They all know I'm the favorite.

Bring on the chocolate cake.

Ted D said...

Shouldn't you be asleep right now so you can wake up and watch the sun rise tomorrow?

KAYLEE said...

KAYLEE said...

C-CITGO said...

Yes or No Kaylee - Should I tell you that I'm having a Hershey's "Special Dark" candy bar? (note - dark because it's good for the heart ;)

Ted D said...

2-1 Sox: they scored both runs with me away from the computer: I think I'll not tempt fate.

Heading downstairs for the forseeable future: Keep the Fair everyone.

KAYLEE said...

NO CAROL!!!!!!!!!!! dark chocolate is good for the heart? according to who?

C-CITGO said...

That has been common medical news in the last few years or so. And later, I'm going to have a small cup of jello!

KAYLEE said...

C-CITGO said...

Ted - Make some jello shots while you are away!

C-CITGO said...

I can't believe that it's now less than a week K. Are you anxious?

C-CITGO said...

That woman that they just showed with the rambuncious 2-year old sitting on her lap, that was me with D last year (though D was 1 back then).

KAYLEE said...

C-CITGO said...

When it's all over, I think that you might feel like it went by quick!

C-CITGO said...

Will you be able to do jigsaw puzzles, etc.?

KAYLEE said...

yeah i know but its the thought that gives me fear.

KAYLEE said...

C-CITGO said...

I think you'll find that you are strong & brave, and that you will carry that with you through life :)

C-CITGO said...

I would like to send you a care package (if your parents say it's okay).

KAYLEE said...

yeah if i get through this I should have nothing to fear anymore.LOL!

KAYLEE said...

OK, carol I will ask if you want?ut I wont see them til the 8th I am at my cousins.

C-CITGO said...

The 8th is fine - Enjoy your time at your cousins!

KAYLEE said...

C-CITGO said...

No AC? ay-yi-yi

Goodnight.

KAYLEE said...

night carol and yeah its hot!

Stacy said...

Glad everyone is back safe and sound. I cannot wait to get Rakes still enough to tell me about his adventure and Medival Knights. :)

Listen Wheat Germ, you are NOT Mom's favorite. She told me herself that she always tried to be fair and not have any favorites (course her fingers could have been crossed. :)

Ted D said...

He's still now Stacy: of course he's sleeping.

scott h said...

All right, enough of this poor pitiful Teddy. They went to the beach for crying out loud! They did not sign up for first kids on the moon.

And Wheat Germ , another vacation? from what training Rusty, Car theft trauma , once a week driving to a Redneck furniture store.

I have been to soft on you boys.Now we will have to suffer a week of blogs about how Jr will never let his kids out of his sight forever. or Newt thinking he saw the image of Mother Mary in the steam on the cabin mirror. Give me a seditive now.

Ted D said...

Listen grandpa, just because your oldest child is ready to graduate college there is no need to be so bitter.

I can't help it you were born during the Truman presidency.

Though, the line about Corn Meal seeing Mother Mary in the steam on the mirror was a good one.
