Before I begin, let me just tell you that Th's favorite channel on television is Food Network. He especially loves to watch Ultimate Recipe Showdown, and every night before bed, he is allowed to watch it if he a) had a good day at home/school and b) took a nap.

I was up late last night for moral support for TJ. He has some Microsoft tests he has to take, and he took one yesterday and has another one scheduled on Friday. Anyway, he was up late working on homework and needed some computer help. He asked me for assistance, and I offered to stay up with him in case he ran into some more difficulty (it was with Excel, not anything to do with hardware). He said, and I quote, "You're the Excel expert." And I am because of my military training. Crazy, huh. I joined the A.F. to work on airplanes yet I left being an expert on Excel. It's because I created spreadsheets to track different aircraft tools and equipment more efficiently, and you know the saying, you learn by doing. Anyway, I'm way off point.

So, as I was saying, TJ and I were up until 12:30AM working on his homework. Lack of sleep left me with a major headache all day. Nothing helped: not Tylenol, not a 2 1/2 hour nap, not a hot bath, nothing. So I prepared and served dinner this evening. An easy meal, spaghetti and meatballs (frozen meatballs, I must add). Boil water, heat some sauce, dinner's done.

We sit down, pray, and begin to eat. Th says in his most serious voice ever, "The noodles are tender but the meatballs are overcooked." TJ about fell out of his chair laughing so hard. Me, on the other hand, put my fork down as I was still processing what I had just heard. I think my jaw hit my plate, too. TJ just smiled at me and said, "He's been watching too much Food Network. Now he thinks he's an expert!" I don't think the meatballs were overcooked, but a good laugh helped me to feel better and appreciate that at least Th is taking the time to taste his food. Who knows, maybe he'll grow up to be a food critic. I mean, he's already practicing, right?


On a serious note, Kiana returns to the vet in the morning for another x-ray to determine if her mass is gone. I pray that it is, and will update on her when I know something further.

Have a great day!

It looks like you got a food critic on his hand. Something like that should be aired on,"Kids Say The Darndest Thing."

That's hilarious!! LOL
