Dinner is cooking and it is almost warmer outside after a weekend of zero temps. I hate that Chris and his screaming buddy Paula are right. I just felt like I needed to go down there to make sure my aunts and uncles are ok. The only good thing is that Chris promised to take me to someplace warm this weekend. He said we could take our clubs and get in a round. I am hoping for our old home, St. Thomas but I bet he picks the Caymans. Smells like lasagne tonight so I am happy. I should go bother him. He has been extra quiet today. I saw him for breakfast and when I got done exercising, I found two ham rollups with swiss and a bowl of fruit for my lunch, but I have not seen him much. I was taking a snooze and the next thing I know dinner is in the oven. I kind of feel like Stimpy in that Ren and Stimpy episode where Stimpy is worrying if Ren is being unhappy. Yeah, I am a big dumb cat.

Ok, back. He is being happy. He got a huge box today from Amazon. More Japanese comic books and more action figures. I should pay attention more. I have not been in his office in a while and did not know he had moved his tv off of the wall and put in floor to ceiling shelves. They are almost full of action figures already but he has room for more. He has glass doors he has to install but he says that is a job for later. His office is actually kind of nice now. It is darker than the rest of the house but it is like those old libraries they had in old houses. All cherrywood and stuff. Now, I know why Tatianna loves this room. Even on cold days it feels warm and comfy. It could be those nice soft leather couches he has or the big old blankets and pillows he has in here but I could live in there too. Chris told me that the love seat looking thing is Tatianna's home when she visits. It has this big fluffy red blanket and a bunch of overstuffed pillows on it and Chris says she curls up in there and you only see her eyes. I can see being comfy there.

I asked Katja about Chris's office and she says it is nice to watch anime or read a manga. It is quiet and toasty in there and Papa keeps a well stocked fridge in there with drinks and fruit and stuff. She said Papa knows what she likes and makes sure there is plenty there. I kind of feel left out. Everyone knows that Chris has this great room but me. I am going to ask him why he never invites me in. When I watch those animes I watch them in the living room or family room with everyone else. I have my own room but it is exercise stuff and things like that. I bet even Paula knows about it. Now, I am Ren and unhappy. I think I will have a word with Chris about why he never invites me.

Wow, someone is fired up. Katja was not looking where she was walking and she walked into the dishwasher door while we were unloading it. That will teach you to play that stupid Nintendo game and walk at the same time. She is yelling that the world is made for short people and the floor is too hard. I am sorry, I am laughing.

Pretty fun day, got our tickets for Curacao by way of Miami. Four days in the sun. We are leaving the clubs at home and just going to bake in the sun. We are leaving Thursday morning and for four days we are going to leave the gloves and scarves at home. So, I got one day to get down to La Vie en Rose and pick up something that works on a beach at 88 degrees. I am so glad my scale is showing me some love. I have to bring Chris for 2 reasons. I need a driver and he enjoys bikini fashion shows.

Speaking of the giant idiot. I got the tour of his office because he read my post complaining that I never get an invitation. I now know more than I ever wanted to about action figures, Japanese comic books, Japanese cartoons and those nasty shows that show everything but have like fuzzy screens around the nasty parts. See, Tatianna was over today and she was watching some Japanese cartoon porn called My Slave Rabbit Anthony. I was going to give Chris some shit about watching stuff like this in the afternoon and he said, that is Tatianna's choice, he said he was perusing (new word I think) something called Fun something or other's action figure catalog. I swear those things are expensive. He had 3 things in his shopping cart and it was over $700. He said he gets 25% off. Big deal. Anyway, I got the tour and I want my exercise room to be as nice. Except for the lazy ass Tatianna, I cannot believe she came over here in her jams. I asked her if she plans on getting dressed and she says sure, when my movie is over. I hate myself for looking, gross cartoon scrabble. I asked her why she is watching this show and she says because the story is really good. Yeah, I bet it won an Academy Award.

So, back to the office thing. Chris keeps that place really clean, no dust, no water rings and no shoes. Even though it is hardwood floors only socks or clean bare feet are allowed. It is like a Japanese house, you leave your shoes outside, but he does not have slippers like we did in Japan. He said he might try to have slippers once Tatianna gets housebroken. He said it loud because Tatianna flipped us off without turning her head. That is their game, he says something shitty about her and she says something about Chris being old. Later today, it was about Tatianna having gas and Chris having a spam sandwich. I think she and Andrew want to move in. They like their apartment but they want a house and every house they look at that they can afford is a fixer upper or too small. If I know Chris he will say yes because Andrew is like his yes man and Tatianna is his best friend. Oh wow, it is like almost 1am. Time to go shoo a husky off the bed.

Hi, it is warm, well warmer, today. I cannot wait until tomorrow morning, by this time we will be on a plane to Miami to catch our flight to Curacao. I am waiting for Tatianna, she wants to tag along with us because she is blowing off her work until this afternoon. I want her job, she sets her own hours, can work in her jams from anywhere she can plug in her laptop and she says when she is motivated, it takes like 2 or 3 hours to get everything done. She and Andrew spent the night and are going to stay tonight because it is National Ravioli Day and Chris was up this morning making up lobster ravioli for dinner. I helped, I broke up the lobster meat (and ate some). There was enough for me to have a lobster omelet.

I am glad we are flying out tomorrow. It is supposed to snow for the next 3 days and I am done with snow. Besides getting me some new bathing suits, I am going to find a pair of trunks for Chris that fit. The last time we went swimming at a hotel pool in Japan, Chris's trunks showed off his bony ass because he is too lazy to tie the draw string and he has no ass. I know he does not care but I do. So, I am going to look for trunks that will not fall off. There are a lot of things that should not be seen and his ass is one of them.

Still waiting for Tatianna. She is having a bad hair day. I guess that is the downside to curly hair. I told her she needs a haircut because it is longer than mine and full of knots because she usually just puts it in a scrunchy and says it is too hard to brush every morning. I better go help her, she is having a meltdown. Laters.

Hi, getting cold outside and some snow. Dinner was really good, lobster ravioli was the best. After dinner and cleaning up the kitchen, Chris, Tatianna and Katja are crowded around his piano and I am hoping they do a song. They went to his office and I am not happy but it was to practice where no one can watch and they came back and even though I do not understand the words it was a the prettiest song I ever heard. They said it is called Giraffe Blues. A stupid name but I guess it is a love song and because both Katja and Tatianna can sing like angels, it sounded almost like something you hear on the radio. Chris, he is Mr Perfection and he said the girls came in too late for the second verse and need to get their wind up because they raced through the end, but he said he woud like to tape it next week and have some more instruments. That is the part I cannot figure out. Chris plays a keyboard thing and it sounds like a guitar or violin or a horn.

I am glad he is talking about playing with music studio thing he had to have. He tells me music is hard work and not something you can do part time. I would not know because I cannot sing and I cannot even keep rhythym. I swear, I try to sing along with the radio and I am awful. I am ok with it. I smoked too many cigarettes and when Chris tried to teach me to play guitar, I am all thumbs and my hands are too small. I am better watching other people sing and play anyway.

All packed and ready for the Uber driver to pick us up at 5 in the morning. I found 4 really cute bathing suits and I love when the mirrors love me. I also spent on some stuff that I hope ends up in the corner of our room tomorrow night. Found Chris some trunks that will not fall down for no reason but he had to drag me into the changing room at the Bay and we got into trouble. Some lady came in an tapped on the door and told us only one adult to a changing room. Those damn things are too small to play scrabble, anyway. But, it was fun for the dirty talk.

Tatianna and Andrew brought up what I figured they would bring up and they want to move in to save some money for a big down payment on a house. Chris offered them the money but they said they want to do it themselves and not have to run to Chris when they need something. Chris told them he likes the attitude and if they do not mind working under the same rules as Katja and Jos it is ok with him and me. I knew he would say yes. They are hoping to have enough saved up in 2 years. Or like Katja says, have their credit cards paid off. I am happy but having all 3 of Tatianna, Jos and Katja under foot could be stressful. Oh wow, it is midnight, I better get to sleep or I will be grumpy on the plane.

We have been here for like 90 minutes and we have a pool just out the door. Yay's! There is a golf course nearby so I am glad we changed our minds and brought our clubs. The food was great and I was super hungry. I woke up late and did not get breakfast and Chris must have roofied my coffee because I slept all the way to Miami. By the time I woke up we were landing and I felt like poop. I missed the meal on the plane to Curacao so I was starving and I wanted to get something at the airport but the driver was waiting for us and after it took forever to check in, I was ready to bite Chris. I finally got food and only growled a little bit while I was eating. Chris is already in the pool and he says it is great. I am going for a swim now and then get some sleep because our tee time is like 9:45.

Golf was pretty sad. I am rusty and nothing I hit went where I wanted it until I was like 10 holes in. Funny, I putted like crazy but usually after it took 3 or 4 extra strokes to get to the green. First 9 holes, I am not saying my score, second 9, a 37. So I will say I was plus 10 but I know it was closer to 15. Chris pisses me off, he is killing it until he started to goof off. I think he saw I was dying and he did not me to be pissed. He said he got a 80 and I believe him. He was like 2 or 3 under at 9 and then he started to drive with his putter. The thing that makes me mad, he was driving better with the putter than I was with my irons.

Found the beach and I got toasted. The guy at the beach apologized for it being "cold". Hell, it was 80 and we were frying in the sun. I am now no longer pale and tomorrow I am hoping for another round and some more sun. We are getting ready for dinner. Chris had the chili they have here for lunch at the golf course and he says it was great. I think they put lizard in it or something because there are lizards everywhere. I better get in the shower because he is saying he is hungry and I do not think he will wait for me.

OMG, so full! Dinner was really, really good. I had the lobster ravioli and I am glad I asked for the small portion. It only covered most of the plate. I am glad I brought Chris because what I could not finish, he did. He had some kind of baked fish that was great. It was spiced right and the risotto he had with it was the best. We had to have the dessert, it was a sour cream red velvet cake that I could not finish and it is sitting in our room fridge, which they fill up with the good stuff like candy bars, ice cream and local beers. The beer I had after we sat in the sun was really good, too.

I am glad I brought my laptop. The TV is either Spanish or something that kind of sounds like Portuguese and there are a couple English channels but nothing I wanted to watch, so I am watching Star Trek and see what movies Chris loaded for me. I know what he is watching, some old tv show called Code Gees, I think. He played the song that starts the show really loud and I remember that song. Girls called us about a minute ago. Tatianna cannot move in until April 8 because she was supposed to give 30 days but they need the place so they are letting them out early. Katja was funny. She reminded us that Tatianna likes to wander around in only a bath towel and when they were roommates back on St. Thomas, Katja said it got old everytime the towel fell off. She said it was like a gym locker room with her. Chris yelled that he is bringing her a bathrobe and reminded Katja that she is not one to talk seeing as she has been known to stand in the kitchen wearing nothing but a smile. This is going to be fun. All right, time to get my watch on and work on that hunk of cake.

Hi! Super weekend here. 3 rounds of golf that got better as I played and 3 afternoons in the sun. I do not look pale and sickly anymore and I got tanlines. Yesterday, I got a 79 and today, I did better with a 78. Figured out I was torquing my hips too much on my drives and hitting some really shitty drives. Chris was really consistent, he got 80 on all 3 rounds. He would start out great but the back 9 killed him. There are some nasty holes and the wind blows in your face and some of his drives looked great off of the tee and then die. For some reason I have never figured out, I seem to guess right when I am playing into the wind. I am so happy I am putting better, I think I am reading greens better and have got an idea on taking longer breaths when I shoot. No more rockets all over the green.

The beaches are great here and not a lot of kids, so no sand all over you when you are roasting in the sun. Chris even got some color which is usually red but he did not burn so he is all kinds of happy. We just got back from a late dinner, we both wanted chicken something and that is what we got, a rosemary roasted chicken. Had another huge slice of the sour cream red velvet cake. Oh wow, so good. The only bad part is that local tv is pretty bad and I am watching mostly old school music videos on Youtube. I thought I had Bohemian Rhapsody on my computer but I did not.

We leave tomorrow morning for Miami. I think we will be home around 6 or 7 tomorrow night and the girls say it is cold as Hell. The dogs have been looking for us and Tatianna got crazy and got the girls to do their laundry and clean up their place. I am going to bug Chris, he has been super quiet since we had dinner and I think he is watching some guy build legos on youtube. It was a great idea to get out of town and get some sun. Sometimes he gets good ideas.

Home! I about died when we got off our warm plane and that 2 seconds in the outside. Had to go find my coat but I am the idiot who wore a skirt and no tights on the plane so my coat did not help much. Chris acted all immune to the cold but I know he was freezing. Of course Tatianna is late. We had to wait for over an hour for her to show up but she tried all kinds of excuses like traffic, she got a ticket (she did, for running a light) and she had to stop for gas because she had drove Chris's ride the last 4 days and she forgot to put gas in it or she could not find the gas card. It was taped to the refrigerator.

But, it was all good. She gets a look at our tans and calls us names and that we suck. Chris told her that pale, sickly looking people like her would die in the sun anyway. We got more of that at home when Jos and Katja showed up. Both of us suck and they hope we get a sunburn the next time we get in the sun. I pissed off Katja by showing her my great tanline. I am stupid, rotten mom, now. Chris got it worse. They got mad because we did not get them anything from Curacao. We did, but we are making them wait. Then, all 3 of them want to know what is for dinner. Ok, we just get home and they want dinner? Wow. So, Chris goes to the kitchen and 10 minutes later he comes out with a plate of pb&j's and cans of warm soda. He then says, with a huge smile, dinner is served and me and mom are going to get chili dogs at Chez Tousignant. I have never seen 3 girls beg as badly as these 3. Oh, we are sorry, we love you, we will be good. Yeah, yeah, yeah. So, Chris tells them to put the sandwiches in platic bags because food should not go to waste and we are going to make them wait until Andrew gets here.

I got a few minutes to kill and the Boy let us know we have tickets to go to the Wrestlemania show in New Jersey in 2 weeks but Chris says he does not think he wants to go but I am going to talk him into it. I want to go so bad. Those 2 have been to the last few Wrestlemanias and they say they are great. It is close by and we can get hotel rooms somewhere nearby. I guess they have tickets for both wrestling shows, the hall of fame thing and the fan thing during the week. It is not like Chris hates New Jersey, it is just that he would rather sit at home and watch baseball games. I know Chris thinks wrestling is a big soap opera but I think if he sees a live show he will get hooked. Andrew is here and we are going to dinner, laters.

Back from the Dutch Antilles. Grand time, golf, sun and not much else for three days. Herself sems happy. She and her buddy Sam are working on having bathing suit bods for May. Don't get it with Herself, she was one rocking fifty year old on the beaches of Curacao. She even got chatted up by some Euro fetus for like forty minutes while I was reading the new Clive Cussler on the beach right next to her. Finally had to tell the fetus that she is one MILF he ain't adding to his win column. He started to babble in French and I explained that I would kick sand in his face if he didn't move along to some grandmother knitting her grandkids a sweater a few feet away. So much fun to be had.

Got the grandkids for the week. Chicken Pox outbreak at their pre-school and Paula freaked out hugely. Get the call this morning and I have to run over there and strap in two kids' seats and then strap in two kids, both barely awake because she has a class at 8:20 to teach and then a huge stack of MRI's to go through. I get there and see that both of the little ones are still in the pajamas and ask, "Aren't they supposed to be dressed?" She informs me that they go to school like this and one of the girls who are there get them cleaned up and feed them breakfast and whatnot, she just has to make sure they have clothes and hairbrushes. Some kind of deal, I am thinking. They were kind of groggy until they saw me and then they were all fired up. Bayley demanded donuts and I got a dirty look from my daughter telling me, "Don't you dare!" Hah, foolish girl, I hit Tim Horton's on the way home and now my grandkids love me even more. If she wanted responsible, she should've called Herself. Of course, Herself was starting the Tour de France on her Peloton at that time.

The plus with having dogs and a Tatianna around is that she can bathe and dress the kids and then she will watch their morning programs and make sure they do their letters and numbers while I am getting caught up on my mail and bills. I love my middle child but she spends way too much on gas station store food and snacks. Her gas card bill was a huge chunk of her pay. I asked her about it last night and suggested using her ATM card for junk food and maybe she won't spend as much and she told me she cannot remember her pin code. I just looked down and felt like crying. Even the Boy knows her pin code, it is the tile of a song I used to listen to when she first moved in with us. Shouldn't be hard to figure out, just google songs which are phone numbers. I think you get two, one by Tommy Tutone (which might work) and one by City Boy (which does work). So, I made her a mix disc of the greatest hits of City Boy, pretty much one song on a loop. She is a marvelous sales person and seems to be on the move upward with her company but sometimes the little hamster on the wheel in her head stumbles. The Boy might be right, she is a living, breathing Kelly Bundy. There is a finite amount of space on her head for information and when one new thing is added, one old thing gets discarded.

Well, looks like my grandkids are totally wired on morning cartoons and education and I have those two and Tatianna all looking at me with big eyes and feeling that a shopping trip to the anime store or toy store is needed for their development. They are adorable. The girls have matching bows in their hair (I gotta tell Tatianna the power bow died in 1996) and Luc's face is not covered in milk or chocolate. Ah, what the hell, Tatianna doesn't get dressed before noon very often, so a trip to the city sounds like fun. I got a few minutes as they get wrestled into their jackets, scarves and gloves. We have new boarders here, by the way. Andrew and Tatianna moved in over the weekend. They are saving money to buy a house and I am good with their motivation to do it themselves. Sounds like they are ready, so off we go.

Grandkids are out of here and I am beat. Took them shopping and that turned into lunch and into more shopping. Don't get me wrong, I love spoiling them but where do they get their energy? I know Tatianna was feeding them chocolate because I have cute hand prints on the upholstery in the back seat of my Range Rover, but still, wow. I do feel happy because I gave them to their mother all wired and no naps plus I got a tongue-lashing for buying them more toys and stuffed things. I also told her they got donuts for breakfast. Profanity in Portuguese is so nice to listen to. She said she should leave them here with me and I told her I got no problem, my rates are $150/hour and expenses. I think I was told to rot in hell.

Right now, I am considering whether to make meat loaf and mashed potatoes tonight or ordering some pizza. I figure six people and pizza could be very expensive while meat loaf and mashed spuds are nearly labor intensive. I bought Tatianna a new pair of boots and some jeans, I think I can convince her to help make dinner with the promise of new sunglasses tomorrow. Conferred with the child and she is on board peeling potatoes. Throw together a quick meat load and some green beans and dinner is served. Success!

Again, my darling daughter cannot budget time. Had to race to her house at eight because she slept through her alarm and was running really late. Lucky for her, Herself tagged along to get the kiddage awake and dressed. I was so pleased with myself when Paula saw I had company the look on her face was pure horror. Always good that Herself can do judgemental. Unfortunately, no donuts today even though I begged and once Bayley gets in her seat, she demands a glazed tractor wheel (French cruller). Herself gets judgemental on me but I am immune. She tells me I am making them a proper breakfast, fruit and hot cereal. Herself is a killjoy.

Right now, Herself is making sure the little ones do their numbers and letters. She even has Bayley reading one of those primers. I know the child can read some but I am pretty impressed. Not like in our day when we stayed illiterate until halfway through Kindergarten. No TV, no going to the toy store today. Herself has huge plans for Bayley and Luc. Education all day long. Of course, I know Herself's secret. When the Boy was this age, she stuck him in front of the TV and had him watch Barney and Blue's Clues and he turned out okay.

I am sure Herself will be worn out by noon and I will have to take over. Supposedly, that is when Tatianna gets done with work in her office and I can have her do the entertaining. Plus, there is the matter of new sunglasses for her and because tonight is dinner/movie night, we are going to see Us, I will bribe her with popcorn and Lemonheads. Speaking of the Tatianna, her attire for work is questionable. She was wearing some kind of purple Lycra body suit that went from her ankles to her shoulders. Skintight ain't the word. I had to ask how the hell does she get into it and what happens when nature calls. She just said she covers herself in powder and leaps in and she has to plan well in advance for potty breaks. At least she wore a sweater thing and a skirt because given the dress codes in offices, I think they would've sent her home otherwise. She left here saying today she is breaking a lot of eighteen year old's hearts. I think she enjoys ruining lives and forcing high school seniors to attend lesser institutes. I swear, she skipped out of the house. She does enjoy her work. Got about two hours to kill before Herself is exhausted so time to catch up on my queue on HiDive.

So, last night was exciting. We get home around midnight and I am ready to sit down and have a drink and some cashews when the power takes a shit. I will say "Us" is interesting but like "Get Out", it lacked those memorable scare 'em moments. Sure, there was scenes where the more weak-kneed like Herself who watched the movie between fingers, but I liked the movie better as a social commentary then as a horror movie.

So, it is around 4am and I realize that the power is still out and figure I better get the old fashioned alarm clocks out to make sure no one sleeps in. Put one in Tatianna and Andrew's room and nary a peep. They sleep like the dead. Then, the fun starts. I first trip over Allie who was guarding the entrance to the girls' staircase. Almost ended up sliding down the stairs and probably breaking something. As I am putting the clock on a counter in their room, I see a flying Katja with a bat heading my way. Lucky I still have good reflexes and dropped to my backside because otherwise I was going to take a shot to the shoulder. I shined the flashlight in her face and she then realized she almost committed dadicide. This part makes me laugh, she screams, "Explain yourself?" I told her the power is still out I was putting an alarm clock down here so you won't sleep in and in five seconds I am going to forget you are over thirty and take you over my knee and make it really hard for you drive today. I got an, "Oh" Because Katja is loud, there is a trio of folks at the top of the stairs and Herself asks if I need hot water. I still don't know why I needed hot water, but I just told all concerned no more good deeds from me.

I got the apology this evening and I just told her to go get the bat because I am retiring it. She tried to say she thought I was a robber. I asked what was I going to steal? Then she moved to the next column, I thought you might be some kind of predator. I asked her if I was some kind of wacko, why was I across the room putting an alarm clock on your kitchen counter? I asked her would Allie even let some stranger get this far into the house? Got another "Oh". The dog doesn't like the Fed Ex guy and I know him on a first name basis. A robber is likely counting holes because the dog has some sharp teeth.

Told Katja she can buy dinner because I am doing squat tonight. She got pizza, so that worked out. Watching the M's lace up the Red Sox. Good to know that Chris Sale is already providing dividends on that big extension. I see Manny got off to a slow start but the Padres could probably beat the Giants running out the El Paso nine.

Hi, I am sorry, I have not been doing much posting. Because some kid got chicken pox at the little one's school, we got them this week and next. I do not mind. Me and Tatianna, when she is here, are keeping them busy. Bayley is so smart, she is reading already and she can add. She is going to be fun for her mom and dad because she already acts like a diva. She is also a talker. Chris says she babbles but she likes to tell stories and she has more words than I do, I think. She is all girl too. We get the 2 of them in their jams and me or Tatianna have to give them a bath and get them dressed. Bayley needs bows in her hair but I got a sore arm from brushing her hair every morning. Both of these kids have this great curly thick brown hair and brushing it is hard work. Then she has to pick out what she wants to wear because Paula will pack her 2 or 3 dresses and then she has to have a mirror, like her mom, to see what the dress looks like. Today she is wearing this cute striped dress and she is asking me if we can go look for something nice for her to wear on Sunday.

I think that is why Chris keeps on saying that both Paula and Thierry better keep on bringing home the big money because Bayley is going to be really expensive to dress. Luc is easy, just have to make sure his shirt has some kind of animal on it. Today is a tiger and he is running around here growling at everyone. He gave us a scare yesterday when he cut his head open in Chris's office. Ok, he found Frankie and Annette and he likes to chase them. It was funny, this morning Chris made them banana waffles and Luc said Allie will not stop kissing me. The dog does love bananas so she probably got a meal from cleaning his face. That dog follows Luc around all day and I think she thinks she is his protector. I swear those 2 make me laugh. Luc is marching through the house and Allie is following him with Luc's stuffed Pikachu in her mouth.

Chris must be making something chicken tonight because I smell chicken already. I am hoping for some kind of casserole because I am feeling like noodles, mushrooms and chicken sound really good. Yay, Chris is thinking of making scones today and I can see he has the cinnamon out. I better make sure that Bayley has done her letters and numbers. I know Luc did the games he has to play each morning because Chris plays them with him. It is that shape and color matching game and then he has to find his letters and numbers from the blocks. Ok, it looks like Bayley talked Tatianna into shopping today and that means we have to drag Chris out of the kitchen to be our driver.

Rain is really making me mad. It is almost warm enough to go outside and not have to wear most of my closet and it is raining all the time. We got the 2 little ones today, again. Paula says they can go back to school tomorrow because it looks like they did not get chicken pox. I think Bayley is ready for school, she was kind of sad because playing with Tatianna and the dogs is not playing dolls with her friends. She did not complain until Tatianna had to go in to work and Chris took Luc for a walk to the coffee shop. The dogs were stupid, I did not know how to sound like a stuffed something big and blue that looks like a bear and I keep on making her blow her nose. I did a fake cry and she pats me on knee and tells me it is ok that Gramma cannot be a Snorlacks (I think that is what she said), Mommy cannot either. It is not good when your grandchild tells you that you stink at do cartoon voices. Right now, she is watching some big red dog on the tv. She has to do her numbers later when Tatianna comes back, because i do not make letters and numbers fun. I will give her the fake cry later just because she is adorable when she tries to make you feel better.

I think we are getting old, the last 2 nights, we both barely made it to 9. I think the little ones are wearing us out. Monday night, after we had did the dishes for dinner, Chris was sitting in his office sleeping in his chair with youtube going on his computer. He was watching some guy build model cars and he fell asleep. That was fun waking him up. He is not nice when you wake him sometimes. Last night was the same thing. He was in full recline and I tapped him on his nose and he almost fell out of his chair. He said he is getting like his grandfather, who would fall asleep anywhere. I think it is the weather, it is kind of warm and rainy which makes me sleepy and when the little ones take their naps, I start to fall asleep too.

On Friday, we are gong to New Jersey because the Boy bought us tickets and everything for the Wrestlemania weekend. Chris has only been to a couple wrestling shows. I dragged him both times and he acted like he did not like it but I know he was into it. We are going to matches on Friday, the Boy got us really good seats near the ring and on Sunday, we will go to the big show and our seats are the ones where you get to take them home because they are like collector's items. The Boy and Domi are already in New Jersey, they flew in on Monday and he hopes to have something else to celebrate. His Master's thing is supposed to get graded, approved or something like that. Like Chris said, about damn time. Chris says he wonders if the Boy is going to be a professional student.

Luc and Chris are back. He put Luc into his stroller and they took the dogs for a walk. We now have wet dogs, wet Chris and somehow a dozen donuts. Wet dogs are all wound up. Luc was funny. He gets in the house and starts yelling that he is missing Cliffo. Chris could not get him out of his stroller fast enough and I heard both of them chattering and then Bayley comes out to Chris and tugs on his pants and says Luc says you got donuts like a question and Chris tells her do good girls get donuts. She gives him her ear to ear smile and says yes in a loud voice. He gave her what she calls her tractor donut and she runs off to show Luc. Dogs are now dryer. Never try to dry a wound up husky. They talk a lot and they like to bounce around. Violet is easy, she just sits there and lets you dry her and brush her. Ally does not like being brushed, especially her tail and she will tell you to stop. Ok, Chris has the little ones and I am going to get my exercise on. Laters.

Me sweating like when Joe Kelly has played this year. Late night cardio was 45 min plus 5 min cooldown on "random" hill intervals, level 6 at 3mph. I am beat.

Kind of dreading tomorrow morning, got to get up early to fly to Newark and meet the Boy for a "wrasslin'" weekend. Oh boy! Herself is in full bounce and is already losing her proverbial shit. Last night, before dinner, she had to give me a primer on what to expect. I will not argue these guys and gals are great athletes and decent actors/actresses but it is a freaking soap opera. I think the biggest deal here is that she is ready to buy up everything at something called the Annex. I remember the last show she went to and she spent a couple thousand on just stuff. I really don't have room to talk, I drop that much at an Anime festival with ease, so I have no leg or principle to stand on.

No grandkids today, their mother feels that they are safe from the scourge of chicken pox. Hell, my mother sent me to school just to make sure I got the disease. I think that was the thinking back in the "olden days" as my daughter likes to call it. We also weren't allergic to peanuts and getting up to change the channel on the tv wasn't taboo back then. She also asks me what it was like walk ten miles, uphill, to school every day in the snow. She will then cap it off by asking what was Abraham Lincoln like. For a person who acts like she is quiet and reserved, she can be a right smart ass at a flick of the switch. I just have to ask if being fashionable, she is a fancy dresser, makes a big difference when the wind is blowing. Her parking space at McGill is probably the windiest place in Quebec and I will get texts that she is frozen because she thinks that it is more important to look good and freeze than to dress functionally and not get frostbite. At least she is not as bad as her younger sister, who can find the only five foot deep potholes in parking lots and make sure to park right next to them. Yesterday, she gets home at 4pm, soaking wet from the waist down. She found a slippery spot at one of her offices and fell in a lake. Usually, she packs every clothes for just such an emergency but it has been a bad week and she has managed to somehow drench herself each day this week and she neglected to load the travel bag yesterday so spent the rest of the day wringing out her skirt and racing through her stops to get home and take a hot shower.

Herself is expressing interest in breakfast and would like to go out even though it is almost 10am. Given that this morning, she was doing the mountain sections of the Tour de France, I am hoping she has showered and changed into something less fragrant.

Hi! So tired but too wired to sleep plus waiting for our late night snack. Last night was so great and tonight was kind of strange. We went to the NXT show on Long Island and it was so amazing. The last match even had Chris getting excited. The ending was so good and when my boy, Johnny Wrestling won, I about cried but when his partner Tommy Ciampa came out in his neck brace, I started crying like a little kid. I had to explain to Chris why all of these wrestling fans were bawling and I think he may finally get that this stuff gets you sometimes. Tonight was just weird. Bret Hart, who is old and has had a stroke was talking and some jackass in a rasta hat tried to tackle him. They beat the shit out of that dumbass and dragged him right past us. I do not know how stupid you have to be to attack one retired wrestler in a place where there are like a hundred monsters who wrestle for a living are at. I saw Ronda Rousey's husband knocking that idiot to hell and back. Tight family, those wrestlers. Touch one wrong and they show up out of the woodwork and throw hands. Chris told me to remind him to never bump into a wrestler.

But today was also fun. We got to meet some of the wrestlers who were signing autographs and pictures. It was funny, after the show tonight, me and Domi are walking out with Chris and the Boy and we are stopped by the Big Show. The Big Fucking Show. He is huge. Chris is tall and the Boy is taller, but the Show just is so much huger. He asks if Chris is a fan and Chris says he did not know but he told the Show I was a huge fan and he shook my hand. No, he did not shake my hand, his hand swallowed my hand. That is when Domi said me too. She had to hug the guy and I guess she listens to him on his podcasts and told him he is the best. The Boy had to grab Domi and remind her that the guy is married and she would likely not survive scrabble with him. The Show goes scrabble and I explained it to him and he died laughing. That made my year.

We got home like an hour ago and I guess the room service is really busy because we are still waiting on our sandwiches. I got a Reuben coming up and Chris ordered a grilled cheese with tomatoes. Lucky the fridge is full of stuff so we do not starve. We had food at the hall of fame thing but it was mostly burgers and dogs. Tomorrow is going to be a long day. The show starts at 5 but the Boy says we can get in at 3 so that is when we are going. He says that is the best time to do your buying. He is buying a championship belt and one for Domi and I begged Chris to get me a bunch of stuff. The Boy says the show will go probably 6 plus hours. I hope we get more comfortable seats than last night. Our seats were good but it was really tight packed and metal seats get hard on your ass after 3 hours. Yay, sandwiches are here and they sent up garlic fries as a we are sorry for the wait. Yummy.

Me and Chris finally woke up. We were at Wrestlemania for over 10 hours. We got there before 3 and we finally got to our ride after 1:30 in the morning. The show was really good but too long. I got tons of swag. I had to have the new championship belt they started to sell at the end of the show and I had to get the Kofi Kingston plates. I already got the other championship belt and I missed the tag team match because I was waiting on the plates for Seth Rollins. I also got 2 leather jackets. The gold one for Sasha looked soooooo cool and I wore that one the rest of the night and I had to have the red Shinsuke jacket. I do not know how much Chris and me spent but it was a lot. We were so into the show we did not eat or drink during the whole thing. I know we were starving but there are always places open for stuff to eat. We ended up getting hamburgers but we were so hungry, they could have been moose burgers. I think we finally got to bed around 3 and we are up early because I was promised shopping today.

The Boy and Domi are already back to Barclay's because there is an autograph thing with Adam Cole, Bay-Bay! I kind of wanted to go but I was not getting up at 8 for that. Those 2 have tickets for tonight's show and tomorrow's show. We were supposed to go, but I think Chris is wrestled out and he wants to go home. So, we are flying back tonight after I get to spend some money in Manhattan. I promised to get the girls some stuff and I want to spend more money. Oh cool, Chris got us a driver for today. I think he wants to kill the next Uber driver he sees. We have had some bad ones this weekend. Wow, the driver is already here. I guess I am doing my hair in the car. Laters.
