Ms. Smartypants’ regular column will not be appearing today, as a result of not receiving any questions. Ms. Smartypants is not bitter, and realizes she is too much woman for some people to handle. And no, she will not be dispensing hurricane advice either. She will just be surreptiously wiping away hot tears and thinking of all the problems she could have solved… For of all sad words of tongue or pen,
the saddest are these, “It might have been!”
John Greenleaf Whittier

You must all be asking yourself, what did they do for their anniversary? UNLESS- a)you don’t care or b)you already asked me. But the rest of you- we went to Tommy Bahamas (pricey, nice and good food) and then to the movies and Chocolata…. mmmmmm chocolate. It was romantic and fun and thank you for all your suggestions! Now, back to our regularly scheduled budget.

The SSS meetings at Christ the King have been very good. Heavy. If you haven’t gone, and you live here, well. You know.
Tonight Radiant is leading worship – I love it.
Also today: the first day of Potty Training (ominous music). R2 has been talking about going pee-pee on the potty every time I change his diaper. So what the heck, we’re giving it a shot. So far, 1 hour of potty training, 1 accident, no successes. Pair two of Spidey undies.

So there you go.

Ah, and all the toby pix are on my picture page——————->
Link over that way.

edited to add pictures from our date and r1s new hair

    Excuse me, Ms Smartypants! But I did pose a question on the last blog (Friday). You just did not notice. Humph! Perhaps my question was not important enough.:-(

    Dear Snubbed,Don’t take it personally. I’m sure that Ms. S.P. did not mean to slight you as that is not in her nature–or at least not in her renewed nature.Whatever you do, be very careful not to take offense as this will lead to greater catastrophe.
