I *heart* FLY

Em's new pen is great. I am half tempted to get one for Abs for her birthday. Abbie has a fine motor skill delay and attends OT after her PT each week (and I can't find the address of the girl that asked me about that, but Abs is what they consider a "low tone kid". She just didn't develop her muscles, although you could never tell from looking). Anyway, she has to practice her handwriting which she hates since it is difficult for her. Em let her try out her FLY pen and Abs is now penning a letter to her dad. We can hook the pen up to the computer, it will gather the info, we can select to change it into type or send it in her handwriting, and email it off!

Oh, and the only reason that Em loaned out her FLY pen is because she wanted to get her hands on Abbie's Diji. Junior is in the crib protesting having to take a nap, and I am on a tossing rampage still. I just finished a bowl of Oma's german potato salad for lunch. She made me a huge bowl of it for Christmas--maybe she's not so bad after all. I would love for her to learn to say my name correctly though, I mean I did marry her son 14 years ago.

This morning we had to go get Ab's prescriptions and take them to get filled. I love to go to Sam's because their pharmacy is fast, but they were out of one of her medications. We did peruse the aisles looking for Christmas deals, but I controlled myself and didn't go overboard. I am seriously working on the 1,000 of white tissue paper for $2.50 that I got there almost three years ago.

We were walking by the meat aisle and I was looking for lamb chops. Em chose to remind me that she had decided to become a vegetarian--she hasn't had meat since yesterday. Then Abs decided she wanted to be a vegetarian and so I had them name off vegetables that they would eat. My food budget should drop dramatically for one or two days until they start eating meat again. I guess at least this would prevent Abs from having access to bones that she could save...

Both of our girls turned to vegetarians when they were younger. Then Ke. broke a collar bone and then went back onto meat and hasn't changed. Now Ka. went from vegetarian to vegan when she lived with the hippies in the Bay Area and still is. When she visits, we have learned to read the labels on food we get for her.

Hey! Thanks for the welcome! I really enjoy reading your blog, particularly your kids' antics. You just talking about life here on your blog has already helped me with questions I didn't even know I had but I _really_ appriciate the offer.

Haha- Cody pulled the vegetarian thing one day, and I reminded him that pizza has pepperoni on it... how quickly one begins to hum a different tune!

Lamb here is so expensive- and I'd kill to be able to find fresh venison, but alas, there is none. One of the many downsides to living in Hawaii (in addition to our islandwide power outages, like the one we had last night!)

I went back to work, so I'm exhausted when Brian calls at 3am. Is it selfish that I want him to forgo this extention if he can? I know he really wants to stay, and the extra pay wouldn't be a burden, if you know what I mean...

I'm curious how long the vegetarian stink will last. I'm going out on a limb and going to guess that its already over!
