* Sign me and kids up for Race for a Cure

* Get copies of Grandma's photo made & Drop them off at her house

* Call Geek Squad to get my wireless Internet hook-up scheduled....=)....no more fighting for the computer! Since my husband DIDN'T GET ME A BIRTHDAY GIFT (read with snarl and squinty eyes).......I went out and got my own....a laptop complete with wireless Internet service! Yeay! He claims he couldn't get my gift because he got sick 2 days before my birthday...and I say "why the hell did you wait till the day before to begin with".... They're coming tomorrow...I can hardly wait!

Those little @#!%^& come back every year and torment my husband and I. Papa Smurf has gone as far as buying a pellet gun to peg there asses off our roof-top....he's chased them out of our garage with a baseball bat....semori worrior style.....we've set traps..... and they keep coming back for more. Bold little creatures....they'll stand 5 feet away and stare at you as if to say "hehe - try and get me you sorry bastards....go ahead.....dare ya" You just know they're laughing at you in their little coony way..."nah-nah you ca-ant catch me"....ooohhhhhh...I'll catch you! This is war! Those little boogers were back again last night....took a picture this time.....

* Return GPS to mom

* find and purchase book....Make your Children Mind Without Losing Yours....That's the kind of day I've had..... went to the bookstore this morning and found the book along with 4 other "sex education" books for my 11 year old....couldn't decide on one so I bought all 4...I'll hand them to him and say "here....read these....if you have any question...come to me"...well, on second thought, maybe I should read them first....

I'm adding to my to-do list.....

I read a big 'ol long article about the Kindle in, ummmm, I think it was Newsweek but I could be wrong. A while back. Anyway, I thought it sounded pretty cool, too, but some critics think that it will be a fad. If you get it, let me know what you think. I kind of want one, too.

Sorry about your "day." It will get better. It always does.

Dang girl, you need a WIFE! That's quite a To-Do list.

I'd rather have a tummy tuck than a Kindle.

May the list get shorter- some way, some how.

Happy birthday! I swear all men have the JIT philosophy of shopping (Just In Time). Especially if it's gift shopping.

Thanks for the image of the bat wielding warrior chasing away laughing 'coons. It sounds like a cartoon. Good luck with those critters!
