Saturday is always errand day. There is a LOT of running around: bank, shopping, dry cleaners, build scaffolding (see below!)kind of day. Saturdays, while not “working” days are always full of work.

But Saturday nights, are always “game night.” Before my son becomes a full fledged teenager that hides in his room, whispers on the phone, and lies to my face, it’s nice to still have this time with him.

Even if – HE ALWAYS – kicks my ass.

After winning that game, hands down, my son looks like a crazed mad man drunk on power:

YUP! Here is the picture of: HIM WINNING / ME LOOSING:

Then, we played connect four, You’d THINK having played this game myself since I was 8 or 9, I had a good chance of winning right?

I was even AHEAD for a while (see my happy face) and see his face that just says, “yeah, right mom… I let you have that one”

BUT NO… I don’t stand a chance against him EVER. Why can’t I beat a 10 year old?

Oh well! At least I got to ware PAJAMAS all day. Even to the store, and the bank, and the dry cleaners. And while dismantling scaffolding.

Now, I am off to watch Breakfast At Tiffany’s. The version WITH Audrey Hepburn

I am slightly trepidatious. as I LOVE the book ( Capote is my all time HERO) and the book is always better than the movie. Always. Sometimes the movie, ruins the book for me. It ruins my images of the characters. The movies are half assed in comparison to books usually. But, I am taking a chance on this one only because it’s Audrey Hepburn.

And, To Kill a Mockingbird with Gregory Peck didn’t crush the book for me… so…. I’ll take my chances.

    Shit still stinkin? or are ya quittin?

    Just kidding… but very proud of my rhyme. How’s the cutting down thing?

    So you are not smoking after every meal, not chain smoking in the car nor on the phone, soon you will be quitting, I can just feel it. 4 is better than 40 but 0 is better than 4.

    My dad is also cutting down in anticipation of quitting, though he is really putting off and putting off quitting. Sheesh, it is easier to get my 7 year old to bed (no, that is never the case actually) than convincing him there is life after quitting. He used to smoke 3 packs a day, now he smokes 10 cigarettes a day. Well, in this battle against Nic every victory counts.

    And one last thing… I kept my 4 year old home from preschool the other day on account of a cold, she was devastated. I consoled her by telling her I would play 3 – any 3 – games with her, 2 times each. I lost all 6. Next time I am going to stack the deck so Queen Frostine of Candyland fame is the first card I draw.

    And I won’t be ashamed.

    Take care and QUIT SOON!
