rosalea’s homage to captain hook on “dress like your favorite book character” day this week. and you all know how much i LOVE the dress up days at the end of the year. when i have already lost my mind. because who doesn’t love finding crazy clothes at 10 o’clock in the night? that is good times. good parenting quotes come flowing out of me at that hour. classic quotes like...

“JUST DUCK TAPE THAT PARROT ON YOUR COAT!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“GO AS AN AMERICAN FOR INTERNATIONAL DAY!!!!!! AMERICANS ARE INTERNATIONAL TOO!!!!!!”

“I THINK THE FEATHER BOA IS TOO MUCH TO DEAL WITH ALL DAY!!!!!!!!!”

and yes, we have a skull and crossbones jacket. doesn’t everyone have one of those hanging out in their closet? and if you don’t now you know where to borrow one for your dress up needs.

this is my LAST post this week. WHY, you ask. because tonight maxx, millie, and i head to jacksonville and spend the night so that we can get up at the CRACK of dawn to board a plane for NEW YORK CITY! adam had to be up there for business this week and so we cashed in some frequent flier miles so that the teens and i could fly up to the big apple for the weekend. we will stay in my friend chris’ apartment. and we will be seeing some musicals (because my NTC motto is “a play a day and sometimes two”). spiderman and how to succeed in business without really trying starring daniel radcliffe (or as we like to call him... harry potter). very excited. 

and to make up for missing thursday, friday, and monday of blogging i will have lots of photos and news from the trip when i come home. try not to miss me too much....

oh, and of course i was wrong about that girl winning american idol. i thought the finale was two nights ago and that she had won. but i guess it was last night and the other person won. hopefully not because i had prematurely cited her as a winner on my blog. i am quite sure that i don’t have that kind of blogging prowess.

and here is a photo of the worst part about having a hook for a hand...
