A Couple of Questions...

Okay, first off. I love looking at my map and seeing how early Gretchen gets up and looks at my blog! But then there are the people from places that I don't know. I am really glad you are looking, but the suspense is killing me. I want to put a Guestbook on here, but it is not a choice. I asked William to write me one with HTML since he is a teenage boy and that is the kind of useful skill he possess, but I don't think he was very interested in doing it for me. Maybe I should let him do some sort of HALO guestbook. He could sort the guests into blue and red teams and occasionally everyone would get a big gun and duke it out. That would peak his interest! So don't be alarmed if you have someone named FunnyBill stalking you, it is just William in HALO mode!

So anyway, please everyone, post a comment occasionally so I can know who the heck you are. Something quick like, "Hi, this is Bob from Brooklyn and I linked to you from StalkersAnonymous.com... Just kidding, I hope.

Secondly, I need school lunch ideas. I have some good ones, but now that we are a fourth of the way through school it is starting to feel a little stale. Here are some of our "good" lunch items:

1. homemade wheat bread, just butter it.
2. yogurt sent straight from the freezer, it is still half frozen at lunch I am told. Very Yummy
3. muffins made with whole wheat and a vegetable, i.e. pumpkin, zucchini, squash
4. Thermos foods. My best investment this year. For about 7 bucks you can buy a wide mouth Thermos brand (don't skimp on the brand, the others don't work very well) thermos at Wal-Mart. This opens up the world of LEFTOVERS! Chicken casserole, spaghetti, tortellini soup. Or Rachel likes to warm up a can of tomato soup or make instant Yakisoba in the morning and take it in the thermos. Harrison likes spaghettios (sound good, Gretchen?) I put hot tap water in the thermos and put the lid on it. Then I warm up the food in the microwave. once the food is good and hot, dump out the water, pour in the lunch and bon appetit.
5. Baby Belle cheese. You have to get these at Sam's or Costco because to buy them at Wal-mart is highway robbery!
6. Lunch meat and cheese rolled up together and put into a snack size zipper bag. Molly loves this.
7. Kiwi. I found these cute kiwi spoons. They are plastic and a knife on one side and a spoon on the other. Any plastic knife and spoon would work, or you could cut it in half first and put in a zipper bag or Tupperware container. the kids just scoop the kiwi out with the plastic spoon.
8. Boiled eggs. I peel them first and then just pop them in a bag. Ella's teacher told her that eggs are brain food. Ella says she has proof because she won the spelling bee in her class and it was right after lunch and for lunch that day she ate 2 boiled eggs!

Okay, I showed you mine, now you show me yours!


Oh, and right now Adrian is in Nashville take his test, Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is so funny you see what time I am blogging. This is so crazy. I can't believe we are doing this. But I have to say...I absolutely LOVE knowing what is going on with you guys. It is so much easier than trying to email or keep up on the phone. No one has time to chat any more even though we all have these cell phones!

Way to go Harrison and the spagettos...We use the thermos too...except andrew lost his and then found it..I am afraid to open it now! UGH

Can't wait to hear how the test went today. Good Luck Uncle A.

Love you guys

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
