In a relentless way, Monday has returned.
You can say one thing about Monday – sure is persistent.
And now for the feature without a button or a name, but we are calling it:
Fashion tips from Rhett:
It is shocking, but I don’t have pictures of the following scenario…
Rhett has been a little obsessed with a certain set of Mario Pajamas – only alternating them with the shirt of one other pj set which sports a large monkey in combo with the Mario bottoms – I am sure it is a subject that will be covered in more depth in future Nirvana articles – ANYWAY, his latest has been to pair this pajama set (or mis-set) with his life vest from the lake.
I don’t let him sleep in the life jacket because I am a super mean mommy, but the first thing he does after he gets up is to add the vest to his very planned out ensemble.
I will work on getting a picture…
Let's find out who is the Peep of the Week!
In response to the last potluck which was DIY –
I just got in from a 12-hour drive – how do you think my coccyx is doing? Sorry. I get sassy when I’m hungry. DIY potluck? The nerve.
Congratulations Em in Pursuit. You are Peep of the Week – and I am hoping you are feeling a little better and quite frankly, I was a little frightened NOT to award it to you.
Snakes, snakes and more snakes
A few months ago we went to the zoo and the boys brought home snakes. Not the real kind, but the very large…VERY LARGE…stuffed animal kind. Ryan had seen the snakes on a previous zoo trip and had been saving his money to purchase one of the large prizes. Reid was talked into buying a smaller, more affordable one to keep Ryan’s company.
I have never seen a real Anaconda, but let me suggest that Ryan’s snake is life size and thankfully lime green and fuzzy. Reid’s is a rattle snake which appears to me to also be life sized and thankfully blue and fuzzy. Rhett bought an elephant.
God bless Rhett.
Even though the snakes are cute and fuzzy they still freak me out. They lay on the playroom floor, across the couch or next to a sleeping boy in a very snake-like way.
No amount of cartoon coloration and furry exterior can camouflage their snakey-ness.
I have never been a snake fan, but in recent years I have been able to choke back a shriek of terror when we see one at the zoo, animal park or in the backyard.
Yes, I said the backyard.
God bless me.
Just this evening as I was sitting at my computer answering emails I glanced out back to see a lovely greenish garden snake seeking dinner.
It was life sized and not so fuzzy.

Today's advice is for a local restaurant that recently opened and has really really delicious food but I can’t go back if they don’t clean up their bathrooms, dining room and kitchen…
WHAT IS UP WITH THAT? YOU JUST OPENED. HOW IN THE WORLD CAN YOU LET IT GET LIKE THIS IN SUCH A SHORT TIME? I WOULDN’T CARE, BUT YOUR HAMBURGERS AND FRIES WERE HEAVENLY. SO CLEAN UP ASAP! WOULD IT KILL YOU TO GET OUT A WASHCLOTH AND WIPE DOWN A TABLE?
One lonely banana.
A very funny case of TMI from Not that You Asked – be warned I am not kidding about the TMI.
