Never give up
Never Surrender
Never undress to dance in the snow
With day light savings time I expected to wake up to sun shine. But the day dawned grey, if you could say it dawned at all.

Serious Thoughts

There are a lot of bloggers out there that actually have serious thoughts. I find that when ever I have a serious thought it usually flees my mind before I can share it.

Maby the fleeing thoughts are not to be shared. Maby they are to be held in the still of our mind until such a time that they coless into an infinetly whole understanding. I am assuming however that the colessing process takes several millenia or so. Or probably actually exists in a sphere where time has a different meaning then it does here.

Well, If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I figured I blogged enough for a while.

But now I blog more.

haha just kidding, I can't say anything meaningful when I am surrounded by tired children.

I always try really hard to act the person I want to become. Maby if I make a habit out of it, I'll make the person out of it too.

Tuna wiggle revisited

While, with Mike at school and an Ewie opened can of tuna fish and peas, I just had to make tuna wiggle for dinner, I couldn't let the open cans go to waste.

But how does an enlightened soul make Tuna Wiggle? I asked myself.

Well, after using boiling up some ancient pastas, I put in some olive oil, sun dried garlic and tommato organic vinagrete, green beans, slice fresh tomatoes, the tuna and peas and about a cup of plain yogurt.

For something as rarely served as Tuna Wiggle is at our house it was quite well recieved. And not too bad tasting either.

I think I need a house like they're building

Raya's Dictionary

I've been using language a little diffreently lately, adn have coined some new terms (at least new to me). So occassionally I'll post some up.

Over Tasking: the taking on of too many things at once to the extent that instead of saving resources you are wasting them. Like today when I was trying to bath the baby, make omlets and start dinner at the same time, I realized I was over tasking when I let the water run in the sink for a few minutes. Men rarely over task because they have a hard time starting more than 1 task anyways.

And finally a deffinition for when Moms say "I just want to be left alone": The bathroom is in need of a good scrubbing and I can't comphrend anything else until that is done.
