My Ten On Tuesday

They'll probably be read on Wednesday but here's my Ten on Tuesday. It's all the rage these days. 

1. This morning started out on a rough note. I somehow locked my keys in my car. And guess what. My spare set was INSIDE my car! So as I was thumbing through the phone book to call a locksmith, Steven yelled that he managed to get the car open by using a coat hanger. I told him that I wasn't quite sure if I should be proud or concerned that he knew how to do such a thing.

2. Steven's "honey do" list is a mile long and it seems like I add to it everyday! Paint the shed, clean the garage, wash the windows. Maybe I should start calling him Cinderella! I don't say it enough but Sophie and I are super lucky to have such a good man around the house! He always stays on top of things like the mowing. Wish I could say the same about the house work. Most of the time he ends up pitching in on that too! 

3. So lately Sophie has been very mean and demanding when she wants something, i.e. "I want milk now!" So Steven and I have been telling to her to "ask nicely." She of course took that literally. So yesterday morning she came into our room and said "Daddy, juice, nicely." Is that not the cutest thing!

4. Yesterday we received a "thank-you" note from our nephew Jacob who broke his arm. We had sent him a get well card and some cash. So what did he do with his cash? Yeah, he bought a hermit crab and named it "Garbage." 6 year old boys are a hoot!

5. I desperately want to see that new M. Night Shyamalan movie with Marky Mark ( I know he's Mark Wahlberg but he'll always be the Marky Mark in the Calvin Kleins to me). I love all of his movies....except for Planet of the Apes, with that girl ape who looked like Michael Jackson.

6. I'm also trying to talk Steven into taking a soccer class with Sophie on Saturdays. Oh what I could do with two hours to myself! 

7. Steven is in charge of ordering Wiggles tickets in a few weeks (I'll be driving to the beach when they go on sale but he'll be flying down 2 days later because he's in a wedding) and he's a little nervous about the whole thing. No way we can be in the nose bleed section for Anthony, Murry, Jeff and the new fella. There was a time ladies and gentlemen that I'd be stocking Ticketmaster the day that Dave Matthews tickets went on sale. My how times have changed! 

8. I would really like to have some adults over for a GTG, especially now that our  patio is up to par. I have a whole bucket-o-margaritas and I'd hate to have to drink the whole thing myself. But I will. The 3 foot crowd is driving me to drink!

9. And I'm just gonna throw this out there, I know a lot of you like him and I personally have nothing against the guy but I'm calling it now. And i soooo don't want to start a political war. But Barack Obama just might be the anti-christ.  The man sure knows how to mesmerize people. Wasn't there another man like that once? Around the 30's? What was his name again, Rudolph? No that's not it. It will come to me later I'm sure. 

10.  Although she Hates it with a capital H, Little Bit looks ADORABLE in her Dora bike helmet. We finally broke it out over the weekend.

OH!!! One of those has inspired me to e-mail you...

And the asking "nicely" is SUPER cute!!

You seem like a nice chick so I'll forgive you the Obama comment. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, just wish you shared mine ;)

Jonathan hates his helmet too. He has the Sesame Street one. I think they look so super cute in them though!

I can appreciate what you say about your husband as mine is the same way! Sometimes when I am aggravated, I need to remind myself of that!

I agree that you are very fortunate with Steven as your husband. He is a superduper husband and dad. Love the look on Sophie's face in the 1st photo.

I'm reading it on Tuesday! And I'm going to do my own "all the rage" 10 on Tuesday...but I'm a little tipsy, so I may not make it to 10. (Rolling Rock 12-packs were on sale at Kroger this evening.)

I love that you feel the same way I do about Obama but it doesn't matter anyways b/c all of the candidates are a bunch of socialists. I just love that I can look forward to paying more taxes to fund programs that are worthless -- how about everyone get a j.o.b.

But enough of my rant -- Sophie is looking cute as ever.

Well, I too share your Obama opinion but unfortunately, too many others think he is the greatest. Not to start a political war or anything...

And yes, Miss Thang looks too cute!!

Be careful, you'll be called an ignorant racist redneck for not liking Obama. Because you know, you can't have an intelligent opinion that goes against the "trendy" candidate. Hillary '12 is all I'm sayin.

I'm excited about soccer but it's only like 50 minutes and I'll probably be the one to take them. I get no time off. Oh well.

This is probably the funniest 10 on Tuesday I've ever read! Sophie's comment is is just too cute!

And hey, everyone is entitled to their opinion when it comes to politics, right? I don't really want to say antyhing about the whole Obama/Hilary thing since I am Canadian and can't vote, lol!

And the name "Garbage" is HYSTERICAL!!!!
