The Noise

Just a few quick updates tonight... Day one with the bracelet was successful, folks! Don't be too impressed, though, because I didn't leave my house the whole dang day! It was four degrees today. FOUR. That is not fit for man or beast, so in spite of the fact that Dylan and I have had way more quality "home" time lately than we could ever want, I just couldn't drag my toasty butt out into the ridiculousness. Besides, even though I am almost finished with the antibiotic I was so thrilled to get, I am still blowing my nose, and icicles attached to my nostrils just did not interest me.

Dylan is either completely wacked out loopy on his antibiotics or he has taken complete boredom to new levels. If he wasn't pressing the locator button on the cordless phone (BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!), he was seeing how many things he could pull off every surface of our home onto his head. He created a new noise that I think only dogs can hear, oh and ME! It is a high pitched whine that makes me feel like someone is running their nails down a chalkboard. As soon as Jim came in the door, he asked, "How was your day? You seem stressed." Geez, did the hair pulling, and eyes darting wildly give it away?

Here is my crazy kid standing on the couch. Be glad I didn't make you watch video of "the noise"!

Way to go with day one! Only 6 more to go! please don't curse me in August! ;)

I love that picture of Dylan- I'm sure I would not love the noise and the falling objects - but he is a cute little man!

Hey...good job! By the way, I tagged you over on my blog.

Ok, so the bracelet thing... is it that you can't say anything negative about ANYONE or just your friends? Cause I tried so hard today to be nice, but I had to criticize the morons at Burlington Coat Factory who couldn't tell me whether or not a stroller was in stock... after sitting on the phone with them for almost half an hour. Does that constitute me swapping my bracelet?

I'm here via The Burgh, and I am just busting a gut at 7am. Thanks. Haven't even had my coffee and your making me laugh.

Off to make my coffee now. ;)

Pam, Yes, lucky for him he is cute, because just when I am about to lose my mind, he looks at me and laughs and I am melted by the cuteness!

Marie, Thanks. I'm off to check out the tag.

Nicole, These are the rules as I see it. You just can't talk negatively about people you know. Not just your friends, but friends of friends stuff. Idiotic strangers- completely acceptable.

Secret agent mama, Welcome and come again. Glad my torture can be amusing.

Alexis is able to emit that sound as well. Fortunately(?), she doesn't do it at home, but rather when we are in the mall so that she can test EVERYONE'S hearing. I do believe only about 6% of the population can hear. Sadly, I'm part of the 6%.

"Eyes darting"--lol.

Maren has just started making said noise . . . I swear I heard my brain rattling off of my skull the other day. Thank goodness he is so freakin' cute!

This is too cold to go outside - I don't blame you. Cute picture of Dylan and I too like to press the locator button on the phone to find the handpiece - it's fun!! Take care and stay warm and inside - Kellan
