Gotta make this quick ... busy day today. A lot of huff-n-puff all about nothing. The Mrs had to escort Gung-Gung off to NYC ... just to make sure he made it and all. While she was up there, she took the opportunity to hang out and visit family and such. Much easier to do when you don't have 3 sniveling little complainers along for the ride. So, while she was making her rounds, I held down the fort and held off the circling invaders with the Tyrants by my side. Mostly, we spent our time outdoors tending to the garden. All sorts of planting and spring prep had to be done. Beans are in the ground along with peas, carrots, beets, onions, spinach, lettuce, soy-beans ... and asparagus! In the end, both myself and the Twin Tyrants of exhaustion
got our vitamin D for the week and had a fairly good time of it. Later on Sunday, before the Mrs returned, the parental units called and had a little conversation with the kids. At one point, Attila Alexis chimed in and noted that the Cybernetic Hounds were 'fighting'. Really, rough-housing as dogs do. To her though, all the barking and snarling was a big dust-up. She tried to convey this to the grandparents by saying: "Dogs were fighting but they were better behaved than us.". Heh, indeed. Of course, I don't let my children poop in the yard. Although, Jake my become interested in pee-ing outdoors.
