5/28 - Batman and the ominous cloud

Batman and I saw a serious grey cloud at the train station this morning.  (Yes!  We went into work!)

At lunch, we saw the fire boat and a cloud that looked like an elephant.

Finally, Batman and I salute the real heroes.  Yep, that would be the *other* folks in uniform.  We thank them for all that they have done, are doing, and will do.

5/27 - The Rainy Day Gang

Needing a break from PowerPoint heck (and a refill on my coffee), I stepped into the kitchen.
The Rainy Day Gang assured me they had my back.

Linda was convinced one of the Gang was (old skool) Pooh Bear.  It got heated, but this mug shot convinced her it was one of the fierce Armadillo Twins.

5/26 - Holy bat pen, Batman!

Batman is taking strong action with his priorities and next steps.

5/24 - G-O spells go!

Poor Moo Moo.  We've been on overlapping conference calls since 9:30am and are tethered to the phone and PC.  Please send breakfast!  Or lunch!  Calls don't end til 3:30!

The killer is that our office is RIGHT NEXT to the kitchen!

I just realized that the magnetic letters the twins left on my desk spell a word.  When I showed them, Lil' Guy said "That's because we want you to go."  Go where?  "To your meeting.  Outside."   (with them, presumably)

But he can't drink if he can't reach the top of the glass!

5/20 - Buster and the moment of Zen

OK, who's sick of Mommy working from home?  Raise your hands.  Now.  Who's sick of Mommy being sick?  Me too.  This blog needs to get out more.

One can see this plant from my desk at home.  Buster went for a closer look.  He promised me it was Zen-related and not at all doggie business-related.  Good boy.

5/14 - Pulmonary Piglet

Piglet helped me be brave for my breathing tests today.  The P-P-Pulmonary tester (hi!) thought we were silly.

The twins brought these P-P-pinkies back from a walk (with Mama) for me for "Just Because I Love You Day."  Awwww.

5/13 - The conference call fairy

It was magic! The call ended 30 minutes early and I didn't get assigned any Action Items!
Thank you, Tinkerbell!

5/12 - Froggie went a-writin'

Froggie went a-writin'
and he did write
Mmm hmm.
Mmm hmm.

Random non-toy commentary alert!

We got a different brand of night time pull-ups for the kids, and you have to wonder what the designers were thinking.

Boy pull-up = MOTORCROSS!  OK, I'll play along. I can see the appeal.

But the girl pull-up?  Lipstick and perfume and "love."  For my preschooler?  Um, no thank you.

5/11 - Moo Moo does not like meetings

He looks mooserable!  Cud it be any worse?

5/10 - JuJu says "please hold"

Your call will be answered in the order received.  This call may be monitored for quality control. We thank you for your patience.  Meow.

Here are some photos from guest photog David...  A funny old car by his house...

And some chalk sea creatures in the park.

5/05 - Piglet and Roo and the Very Big Pen

Mama rushed to get the twins out of the house in time for my 10am meeting, which was, of course, cancelled at 10:04.  Nonetheless, I still had 2 small but able helpers.  Don't they look eager?  Take a note, boys!

5/04 - Flowery notes

Lil' Gal picked these flowers for me at the school yard today.  Awwww.

That afternoon, she got a big time-out for pulling all the leaves of my new succulent.  Bad Lil' Gal!

5/03 - Magnifying Glass takes a closer look at the news

I worked from home today for the first time in 3 weeks.  Overall, it went well, but I found that as I got more into it, my heart rate and breathing got a lot faster.  Must... take... things... slowly...

Lil' Gal gave me Magnifying Glass to keep me company at my desk.  Together, we took a deeper look at celebrity gossip.  RIP, Lynn Redgrave.  :(

4/30 - Clock and bricks

Here's another guest photo from David, who appears to be at the ball game.  Lucky David.

4/29 - Buster and Roo are on board

Buster and Roo took a ride around the study while Mama and I wheezed and the twins ran circles around us.
