My family had this conversation about an hour ago: Gabe: I looked online at Target for 8 X 8 frames and they didn’t have… Me: Dick? Gabe: Dick. Ian: Dick! We’ve been trying to get better about our foul mouths and we’ve really made some progress, but not enough, apparently.

Nolite te bastardes carborandorum!

Don’t let the bastards grind you down. I know I’ve posted this picture before, but The Goon Squad wanted to remind everyone that The Tampa Bay Lightning are still the reigning Stanley Cup champions. Even more importantly, Buccaneer training camp begins today. Let the football, beer and chicken wings begin!

Randomness Part IV

You all may already know about this, but PostSecret is an interesting blog. I just saw it for the first time. I got this off of The Sports Guy’s links, so if you read him everyday, you may have seen this too, but Corey Feldman is a freak, and somehow, still working. Apparently Hurricane Dennis […]

Warning: Downer

I was looking through all the pictures from our vacation to put up on The Goon Squad’s website, and I noticed something odd. This is going to sound incredibly selfish, but I am shockingly absent from the pictures of my family. I know I should not be surprised, or upset, because I take most of […]

And So It Begins

It is that time of year. Fantasy Football time. I love Fantasy Football so much, that I am the commissioner of my own league on my favorite fall website Anyway, I sent out e-mails to a group of people who have played together for a couple of years saying how to sign up this […]

The Latest Party Game

Alison (a.k.a. Tiffer) had something on her blog the other day about The Latest Party Game. It is basically an interview game. I’m following Alison’s lead, by trying to answer spontaneously. If you want to play, you can play here, on your own blog on on Alison’s blog. Here we go: What are your major […]

We’re Back

We made it back from vacation. Shockingly, the kids were great in the car. We had a really good time. These pictures are from the Squad’s first time in the Atlantic Ocean. We were up in Delaware. Yes, I know it is odd to live in Florida, and go on vacation to the beach in […]

And away we go

We leave today. Thirteen hours in the car with the squad. This will be their first trip out of state. Anything could happen. Luckily, we are prepared. For the kids we have in the car already: Two little touch leap pads. One in pink and one in blue. Four books Two NEW dolls, one boy […]

…and this all happened this morning

Ian found a new way to wake me up this morning. He jabbed me in the nose with his thumb three times. This is only one of the down falls of bringing a teething toddler into your bed in the middle of the night. I’m surprised he didn’t give me a bloody nose. He has […]

Our strollers took up an obscene amount of space.

Becky and I braved the mall today. That makes two adults and five children, four of which are 14 months old. Andy is three and he was an angel the whole time. I can’t imagine the squad ever behaving like that, but I hope someday they will. I feel bad for whoever had to clean […]

Randomness Part III

In case you don’t get a chance to watch The Simpsons one of 47 times a day Fox and UPN run it, you can always get a good Homer quote here. For those of you who live in the Tampa Bay area, we have got to vote this fascist out of office. Rhonda Storms (I […]

Gabe says she takes after me.

Gabe says she takes after me. I don’t see it. Oh, and yes, those are Ian’s shorts.
