Some days

Yesterday, when I got home from work, Jewel was crawling through the nylon, pop-up cubes and tunnels that we set up for the kids and 3B was walking toward the front door while mouthing off to Mama, pointing at her and making his angry face.

Trying to defuse the situation, I asked if he would come over and give me a hug, but Mama cut me off, “He’s going to time out.”

Oh.

Yeah, some days are just that way. Cuteness on the floor and trouble in the hallway. But overall the kids were good yesterday, despite a four-hour visit from a DishTV installer who upgraded us to HD, which meant that I could watch the beginning of Oregon’s loss in painful detail. Dude, every texture on their uniforms–the wings on the shoulders, those screaming yellow socks, and the faux fabric of their helmets–was visible. Someone should really tell them.

But I couldn’t watch Castle in HD because the HD local stations come from a satellite that isn’t visible from our condo. So, we still have our local stations…and now two dishes on our balcony. Yeah, some days are just that way. HD on the TV and a mess of dishes on the balcony.
