Mid-afternoon Randomness

Hambone, out of the blue, and in complete seriousness, to his brother and sister, "I ate a wormy when I was a little baby." (Which, for the record, he did not. At least, not that I know of.)

*Stunned silence*

E. Dubs, all aghast: "What did it taste like?!"

Hambone: "It was all juicy and yummy!" And he bounds out of the room, leaving his siblings vomiting in their mouths a little.

And that is the end of your mid-afternoon randomness for today.


  1. GRODY!!!!! I think it's hilarious when kids tell random not always true stories. So funny what they come up with!

  2. I teach 2nd grade... I hear it allll the time :)

  3. That's hilarious. Thanks for a good chuckle.

  4. Lmbo. Thanks for the smile. I also think I vomited in my mounth a little :-)

  5. too funny... is he the "jokester" of the fam?! it's so funny the stories thats kiddos come up with!


  6. Got to love those little boys! Too funny!

  7. Yikes! My daughter didn't eat them, but she had a worm family that were her friends. Yep, they lived in our yard and she cared very much about them. Now, at almost 30, she still goes out of her way to save them when she finds them stranded on sidewalks after a rain.

  8. *giggle*
    I found you via a link from a blogger in the Over 40 group.

  9. I did have to eat a worm when I was a kid..I probably didn't HAVE to, but my brother was sitting on me dangling it over me, so, naturally, I felt that I HAD to! It wasn't so juicy and yummy. I believe it ended up back on my brother!

  10. it. Kids are awesome.
    Conversation with my kid yesterday:
    Glo-Worm: “Mommy! I got a booger for you!” (He holds his hand out with the prize on the tip of his finger)
    The Mommy: “Awww, thanks, but mommy doesn’t want your booger.”
    GW: “Mommy eat booger!”
    TM: “Ewwwwww YUCK! I’m not gonna eat your booger.”
    GW: “You can put it in your pocket for later.”

Our Colorado Trip

One week ago today, I had skied myself down a mountain (several times) and survived.

Oh, you guys...Colorado has captured my heart. I loved our vacation like you wouldn't believe and while I am not (nor will I ever be) a world class skier (let's be honest, greens are where you'll find me...and I won't be whizzing down them, either!), the mountains and the skiing and the fresh air and the walking everywhere? I grabbed a hold of me and doesn't seem to be making any moves to let go!

Check out this view from our hotel room!!

I just told someone today, "If I had had my kids with me, I'm not sure I would've come back." I felt so healthy and vibrant and alive...ugh, I wanna go back!

Funny story, the first evening we were in Beaver Creek, we walked down to the village and I got my first real look at the ski runs...I thought, "Huh. They don't look so bad." and we went about our business and had supper and went ice skating and tucked ourselves in…

Sludge.'s like a thick sludge, hard to wade through, difficult to know which way is up, feeling like you'll never get out of it.
Today was a rough day. I'm not sure if it was just setting in, or that grief coupled with today being Baby Girl's and my birthday, was just a bad combination, but whatever it was, I found it hard to keep the tears at bay.
Just when I thought I'd have it pulled together, I'd hear or read the words, "I'm sorry", or field a phone call, or think about the amazing outpouring of love and support...and the tears would flow. Fast and furious.
I've discovered that my rock, my strength, comes from being around family; specifically, my husband. When I'm alone, the thoughts and memories coming flooding in and the tears come pouring out. My brother-in-law, Verd, was an amazing man. Actually, "amazing" doesn't even do him justice, I wish I could find a word great enough to describe the kind of man he was.

My heart…

What I've learned.

Tomorrow marks the return to a "new reality" for our family.
After a couple of good days, I know everyone is apprehensive about what tomorrow will bring. I guess we'll just have to see.
This past week has taught me a lot...not the least of which was how many lives my brother-in-law had touched. Over 2,500 people waited in line, each for about 2 hours, to pay their respects to him at his wake. I was blown away...we were ALL blown away. At his funeral, the church held more people than it had ever held before...Christmas mass and Easter Sunday included.
Our priest was even amazed.
I also learned, probably most importantly, just what an amazing family I married into. Just how wonderful they all are, how strong they all are, how faithful they all are. As I spent this week "disconnected", I realized I was more connected than I had ever my family.
I learned that the things that matter most in life are those that can't have a value placed on them. It's no…
