1. Humid/Sunny/ 90 here today with a chance of strong storms later this afternoon. I kind of like it when it gets this way.
2. Despite tomorrow being Cinco-de-mayo, today is still Taco Tuesday... and you don't mess with tradition. I will have a margarita tomorrow to make up for it.
3. Cooked filet mignon for dinner on Sunday and it turned out freaking awesome... however my oldest was pissed. I cooked the a much cheaper cut of steak knowing that they would not appreciate them (and the two younger boys would likely not eat it anyways, and gave him a bit of mine. He realized that the quality of the cut matters a great deal. Next time, I will need to make him one too.
4. I am looking forward to the Wings beating Blue Jackets for the last two games of the season. That way they won't finish last in the division.
5. Before school my oldest was out playing with a remote control car in the cul-de-sac and I was getting my coffee cup out of my tuck when he noticed our neighbor and their twin toddlers come out to head to preschool. He quickly went over and crouched down and ask them how they were doing and if they were excited to go to preschool. My neighbor commented about how excited the twins are to see James and how they appreciate how well mannered he is with kids. I looked at him puzzled thinking, ok, why can't we get him to follow the rules in the house and do his homework...

I get this sometimes too where (usually elderly) people after interacting with my son say "oh, he's such a nice and considerate boy...." and I'm thinking who the heck did you just talk to? Surely not Junior, that hellion.

You're doing a good job when your kids are considerate to others without being prompted. They'll still how far they can push you at home.

1. I wish ursus would pay us a visit
2. I would rather see a comedy concert than a musical concert at the moment
3. Tuesday in it's own way is often just as bad as Monday.
4. For the record, I see nothing wrong with living for the weekends during one's work career
5. There's a bag of popcorn on my desk I popped for dinner after last night's meeting.
