Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Theme Hijacking, Parties and Pre School
Tuesdays are for Random. My weekly therapeutic rant about everything. Little tidbits of stuff going on and thoughts in my head. Everyone does it. Some of us save it for Tuesdays. If you want to join us, or just take a peek at who else is playing...head over to The Un Mom. She's the Queen of Random and the rest of us just try to be as random.
I had my theme hijacked. You probably noticed. Someone sent me an e-mail message and when I took a look the entire thing was covered with "photobucket image no longer available." I guess the free theme was no longer desirable to the designer and they deleted the whole thing. I quickly grabbed a free one from blogger and put it back together as best I could. Still need to do some work, though.
We've had parties the past two Saturdays for the kids and their friends. First we had a HexBug Nano party. All the kids received nano bugs and spent hours building tracks to run them on. I think the dads had more fun building the tracks, but it might just be me. The second was a Star Wars: The Clone Wars party. Action Figures for all and the Season 3 Premiere. Popcorn, licorice, cookies and Yoda Soda. Lots of running around and light saber battles. This Saturday I'm going to chill. I've earned it.
I was invited to a Bloggers Virtual Wine Tasting in October. It's a two hour event presented by a Master Sommelier and 8 winemakers from Chile. I'm excited to participate and even more excited to be receiving recipes to pair with the wines. It should be a good time of food and wine.
I posted on FB that my boss never works on Sundays and we just slack and goof off in his absence. First off, it was a joke. I was responding to a comment his wife made, we're friends. I never goof off. Just wanted to clarify that for any future employers. As it turned out, the boss was there creating a massive project for me when I arrived. I laughed and asked if he had seen my post. He hadn't. He's rarely on FB. I told him what I had written and he said "then this should make the blog." It did.
Just a couple more weeks and Puddin Pop will be in preschool. 5 days a week. Every morning free. I'm getting excited with all the things I want to do. How much will I actually get done? We'll have to wait and see.
That's it for me. Now go and read some more random.
