1. Recent Owen quotes:
Mom….did you hear that fart? It sounded like a guitar….
Do you know what Mom means? It means I need you.
and now for my personal favorite:
Owen curled up with me for awhile on Sunday to watch the Oscars (Leo took off in a huff because I said we weren’t watching Gilmore Girls that night). As George Clooney walked onto stage Owen gasped and said:
Ohhhhhh….HE should be our president.
Could I love that boy more?
2. The weekend activities for the guys were a birthday party on Saturday for Owen (Leo deemed himself too grown up to go to a party with six year olds even though he loves Sophie) and a birthday for both guys on Sunday. They were happy…I was somewhat incapacitated….see #3.
3. I did something to my back and so spent much of the weekend laying around hurting. So what else did I do? Well, nothing productive but I DID watch Into the Limelight, a BBC documentary about tribute bands and loved it. I then spent WAY too much time on www.tributecity.com. Honest to God…there are 71 Bon Jovi tribute bands listed. You wouldn’t believe some of the other bands that have tribute bands though…very satisfying…. Lots of tribute bands in Italy. Who knew?
4. Woke up on Sunday with my neck and back still really hurting so I didn’t take my father to church. I’m not proud of myself but I had slept terribly and I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I just plain couldn’t do it. The only thing I console myself with is that he’s not always aware now that he’s missing it.
5. Crazy morning this morning…hence no post. Owen decided not to go to school. Uh huh. He just went limp and laid on the floor moaning. The guy weighs 60 pounds…NOT easy to pick up as a dead weight. Finally I said, O.K. but if you stay home you have to stay in your room ALL day. We did this once with Leo and it worked. Owen….on the other hand……as he told my sister Judi when we called to say Happy Birthday this evening…..had a GREAT day. He played, he napped, he had a wonderful time. He promised to go to school from now on with no problems but I don’t believe him a bit. He won this round. Oh well, at least he wants George Clooney for president…..
