In which I blame The Sick, The Busy and the just plain old Tired

Would you believe I'm still taking pictures of the twins' toys every day?  I am!  Some of them are even quite clever.  And then, at the end of the day, I just don't get around to posting them.  I will...

In the meantime, please do follow/like me on these other sites where I'm slightly more alive:

8/27 - Moustacheless Mario jumps for joy at the fajita bar

Someone had a lunch meeting today, and instead of it being a meeting without lunch, it ended up being a lunch without a meeting.  How awesome is that?

"What's on the agenda today?"  "Eating free food.  Your action item is this cookie."  NOM. Check that off the list.

8/18 - Elephant hugs a tree

We had 14 meetings on this Monday and didn't get to see much of anything besides coworkers and conference rooms.  (Yes, 14. I do not recommend it.)  We did take a moment and appreciate nature, which was a small coffee tree at a coworker's desk.  Ahhh.  (Well, we couldn't figure out how to drink it.)

8/19 - Elephant makes a very tall friend

Our company had a fun summer event today, with jumpy houses and games and wandering performers.
 The stilt lady thought Elephant was very cute.  He thought she was a fancy giraffe.

8/20 - Elephant gets a little fruity

So the thing with the free cookies?  Nancy is full service.  She brought me a cookie *and* an apple.  Brought the latter home for the kids because I am also good at sharing.  Fruit, anyway.

8/21 - Elephant wants the cookie, not the cold

My job seems to have a lot of cookies. So much so, that on the days where there are no free cookies, I get a little pouty.  (Do NOT have a problem. Could quit cookies whenever I wanted to. Just not today.)

Happily, new girl Heather has the same problem with fondness for cookies and is good at sharing.  We like her a lot.

8/22 - Ice Bird is broke, yo

So don't ask him for anything.  (File under: odd things one finds in a conference room...)

8/25 - Moustacheless Mario is so fancy

I went to get my hair did, and Mario made a fancy friend.
I'm so fancy
You already know
I'm in the fast lane
From L.A. to Mario
I'm so fancy
Can't you taste this gold?
Remember my name
'Bout to blow

8/26 - Back to School!

I guess I had a longer hiatus than intended.  I did take pictures of the twins' toys the whole time!  Someday I'll post them, I swear!

So, fast forward to today...  My wee twins have become big strong third graders!  How about that?
And while Lil' Guy (L) and Lil' Gal (R) were off reuniting with friends and learning important things, Moustacheless Mario and I had a healthy breakfast at work.  Nom nom nectarines.

4/04 - Happy smiles through hunger and rain

Happy thinks fighting childhood hunger is a good thing.
We had a very dramatic drive home, with pouring rain and sun so bright the road gleamed like diamonds.
Lil' Guy did his best bouncing Scraggy imitation with my pants.
