The things boys say

The J funny for the day: He woke up this morning, pulled off his underpants, and said, "Look at my penis!" I said, yes, dear, you have one, that's nice. He responded with, "It's a lovely toy!" I couldn't even respond to this one, all I could do was laugh. He is such a boy.

I just finished a really interesting book, I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. It's not very long, and it's a new take on the vampire novel. I read it in an evening, because I couldn't put it down.

I've also recently finished The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of The Apocalypse by Robert Rankin. It was another that I just couldn't put down. I had a little bit of a hard time getting into it, but once I did, I just had to see what happened next. It looks like he's written quite a few books, and I'm going to have to find more of them.

I never did update about K. Turned out he had an infection in his salivary gland that spread and just got really nasty. Not sure how he got it, but he did. Antibiotics and time have, thankfully, cleared it right up. And I guess the hospital wasn't too concerned about his blood sugar, as they sent him on his way with instructions to follow up on that with his regular doctor. So he's doing OK now, and I'm glad.

In other news, J has now met A, the woman K is seeing. He asked me beforehand if I was OK with it, and as I trust him not to do anything that's not in J's best interests, I told him I was. J seemed to like her all right. They made pumpkin cookies, which probably scored her a lot of points with him. LOL The day after J met A, he and I went to Target to pick up some odds and ends. He started telling the cashier all about A, and she said, "Oh, I have a grandbaby named A". J told her, "No, A is a mommy, and she lives at the bitty house with daddy!" LOL I had to explain to him that no, A doesn't live there, she has her own house, she just goes to see daddy at the bitty house sometimes. At any rate, he doesn't seem to be having any difficulty with having met her, so I'm good with it. I guess it's a good thing for him to see that both mama and daddy can be happy, even if we live in different houses. And I guess that at some point it would be OK for J to meet Brian - after all, he and I have been seeing each other for nearly a year now.

My garage door opener has been fixed, but the remotes aren't working right. I reprogrammed them this morning and they worked fine - as long as I was inside the garage. Outside the garage (where they really should work)? Bupkes. AARGH. I'll try reprogramming them again tonight, and then if that doesn't work, I guess I'll call Lowes.

My computer problem looks to be the hard drive, and not just Windows. *SIGH* I've found a local place that will recover and transfer data, replace my hard drive, reload software, etc. for $100 plus the cost of a new hard drive (starting at $60 for a 40 GB drive). So, while I hate to spend the money, at least it's not obscenely expensive, and I do need my computer. I guess I'll take it in this weekend - they're open on Saturdays.

Gosh, this will be a busy weekend. Computer repair, the fall festival at J's school, one of J's little buddies is having a birthday party - I'm tired already! Gotta remember to buy a present for the party - I'll have to ask J what his little friend likes.

10:30 - only seven hours left in the workday.

Maybe J thinks she lives there because she spent the night?

Lisa said...

Hmm, I don't know. That wasn't mentioned, and wasn't part of the deal. I'll have to ask.

Nell said...

Ok, call him now, I'll wait.

Lisa said...

I never did ask, but I doubt seriously that she spent the night. If she did, she'd have had to sleep on the couch, because J sleeps with K and I know he wouldn't have given up his spot without a huge screaming fight. LOLOL
