Tuesday Tidbits-December 15, 2009

A Conversation With My Son:

Munchie Boy: "My arms still hurt from my swim meet."
Me: "That's because you tried really hard to do your best."
M.B.: "Well, I am the walrus, coo coo ca choo! And you know what that means?"
Me: "No, what?"
M.B. "That means you're the Egg Man."
Me: *speechless*
Then we both broke out in a fit of laughter!


Do you all remember my post about my brother-in-law, Larry? His surgery went well and he is now undergoing his first of 3 rounds of chemotherapy. That, however, is not going so well (fever, chills, fatigue, etc.) If you are so inclined I'd like to ask you all to offer up a prayer or a sacrifice in his honor today. Thanks.


Sticker Shock

I finally mailed all the Christmas packages yesterday. That, plus stamps for the Christmas cards (that I have yet to write and address), cost almost $50. Yikes!


A Conversation with Mr. Sister:

Me:  "I'd love a Kitchen Aid for Christmas."
Mr. Sister: "What are you going to do with a Kitchen Aid?"
Me: "Cook, bake, you name it."
Mr. Sister: "You don't bake, now!"
Me: "Well, I would if I had a Kitchen Aid!"


And now, for your listening and viewing pleasure: The Charlotte Children's Choir performing All is Well on December 13, 2009. (My daughter is 2nd from left, top row) Enjoy!

(Hard to believe they are all between 11-15 years old!)

Hey, that is so cool to see my fave phrase: coo coo ca choo in your post. Munchie Boy and I have something in common!

I will be praying for Larry today. Have a friend who is treating for leukemia after battling breast cancer.

Thanks for the choir performance. They rock and your daughter too!

You are so easy to please...a kitchen aid. I want one too...but I call it a chef.

Per your conversation with Munch, So that was his problem during the swim meet! He was a Walrus! Next time he should focus on being a Dolphin!

Per your conversation with me(Mr. Sister) Kitchen-aid mixer? I thought you wanted a radio? Now there are two ways I can go as a result of our conversation -- 1) So, you are going to reverse almost 20 years of not baking and start just because of getting a Kitchen-aid mixer? Or 2) If you start baking more, I'll eat more and get fat! I see that as a lose-lose proposition!

Watch it Mister! I may just post about the gift that keeps on being given!

Purple Flowers said...

The Kitchen Aid Mixer seems to be a common topic among bloggers. I have one, and it makes life so much easier when you're baking. It's helps in being a multi-tasker as opposed to standing in one place holding the hand mixer.

I will be praying for Larry today and everyday until he feels better.

love the convos!

Anonymous said...

ooh! i hope you get the kitchen aid. i got one last christmas and lurrrve it!

Lissaloo said...

lol, Men! You so need that Kitchen Aid :)

Pelican Joe said...

You better NEVER want a radio!!!

blueviolet said...

I really believe if you get your Kitchen Aid, you'll want to bake. They're dreamy!

Your conversation with your son is the best!!!

"And so our stories go..." said...

hope you get a kitchen aide...I know you'll make some delightful treats.

Confessions From A Working Mom said...

I can't tell you how many women I know (myself included) who have said the exact same thing about a Kitchen Aide mixer... what is it about that giant appliance that inspires us so?


drollgirl said...

DUDE. the postal rates are OUT OF CONTROL. i just paid about $10 to send a book priority mail. GAH! highway robbery! and the lines at the p.o. don't help either! not to mention the drones working there! GAH!!!

hope your b-n-law is going to be ok. they HAVE to come up with better treatment than chemotherapy. my mom had it years ago, and it is something i hope i never have to endure.

and kitchen aids (ew, that doesn't look good!) are rad! but only for "real" cooks and bakers. :)

Kathleen said...

Will pray for your brother-in-law...

...and that you get that KitchenAid in your stocking.

Tattoos and Teething Rings said...

Maybe you should make some really horrible cookies and say "These would be a whole lot better if I had a K.A. mixer." Or, just buy it for yourself and hand him the receipt for reimbursement ;)

Jephy's Mom said...

Hopefully, your brother in law's doctor will find a way to manage the side effects for his next treatment. He is in my prayers today. My sister in law is also taking chemotherapy and her last treatment is in a couple days. She can't wait to get her life back.

Your conversation with Munchie boy sounds exactly like one that I would have with my eleven year old son only I'd be the walrus and he wouldn't be impressed.

Erin said...

Sneding thoughts and prayers for Larry. I've heard chemo is really rough. I hope he gets to feeling better soon.

AJ said...

Tell Mr. Sister that I bake SO much more since I got my Kitchen Aid.
The chocolate chip cookie recipe that comes with it is the best recipe EVER.

I love that song. :)

Life Laugh Latte said...

We'll be praying for Larry. Sorry to hear that is tough going so far. The Choir is beautiful...what lovely voices. Don't we have the craziest conversations with our kids? Cracks me up. Holly

Raoulysgirl said...

First...the choir amazes me. They are wonderful!!!

Second...I will keep your BIL in my prayers!

Third...I am totally loving MB! He is such a cutie pie!!!

And Fourth...I can speak from experience, Mr. Sister...a KA does, in fact, a more prolific baker make!

Kimberly said...

Larry is in my prayers.

Love the choir! Just magnificent!

I love my KA.

I just mailed my stuff out FED X. I had to mail stuff to my mom's. 2 Boxes full of stuff for the families. They are so going to love their Ghiradelli chocolates.

Weezer said...

Tell you what I know. I thought a Kitchen Aid was a stove. Guess that says something about how I know my way around the kitchen.

I thoroughly enjoyed the choir's music. I love the sound of voices blendedin song.

And of course, prayers for Larry. (That's my brother's and a son-in-law's name. I'll remember it for sure.)

Helen McGinn said...

Quotes from The Walrus/The Magical Mystery Tour by The Beatles from your lad? I'm so impressed! Wow.

Thr kitchen aid thing I so totally understand! *L*

My thoughts and prayers to Larry.

Helen McGinn said...

p.s. loved the choir.

Julie Schuler said...

Get better, Larry!
My kitchen thingy that I want more than anything is a pasta maker. Dave came back from a restaurant supply store with a ravioli stamper, and I said it doesn't do me any good without a pasta machine...

Corrie Howe said...

I understand sticker shock on postage. I have family in England and a former exchange student in Spain. It often costs two or three times more to send the gift than the actual cost of the gift.

I want to send Jorge Peanut Butter and Marshmallows, his favorites. I can buy a bag of marshmallows for 97 cents and it only costs me $21 in postage. What a bargain. (Needless to say, I haven't been able to talk myself into doing this yet.)

Deidra said...

I thought I needed a Kitchen Aid...now I know I need one. Your mister cracks me up!

The choir is amazing! Really.

And yes, I am praying!
