Yesterday my oldest daughter drove down from Spokane to help me child-proof my new place. She spent over $100 on locks for closets, plastic door handle covers, frig lock, you name it. This morning about 10:30 I fell asleep sitting on the couch while watching Lady and the Tramp with my twin boys when someone started pounding on my door. I got to answer it and a man was standing there saying "do you know anyone who has two little boys - they are down the street and around the corner. My wife and I were stopping to grab them but by the time I stopped I couldn't see them any longer." I turned around to look for the boys and the sliding door in the kitchen was wide open. We all three frantically ran down the street and around the corner. After about three blocks I told the gentleman that I was going back to my house to call the police when this woman came walking out of her house with one of the boys and a teenage boy followed her with the other. I couldn't even talk!!!!!!! I thanked them all very VERY much and took the boys home. Believe it or not the day before we tried to get them to open the sliding glass doors and they couldn't so we didn't worry about it. Needless to say I immediately went and got a adjustable rod to lock the door with. Just a headsup to everyone with little ones - sometimes we forget when it has been awhile. WHAT THEY COULDN'T DO YESTERDAY THEY CAN DO TODAY! Obviously it isn't just me taking care of those boys - if they had turned right instead of left they would have gone out on a busy street. They DO have guardian angels.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
