Random Tuesday Thoughts--Summer dullness

randomtuesday
It's Tueday again and that means Random over at Keely's place. 

Middle of July and I'm just feeling all kinds of blah.

We are painting my mom's garage and trim on her house--she is paying well and watching the boys while we do it.  I think I will be sore and tired the next few weeks, even if Nick does the lion's share of the work.

We discovered Tiki torches and we love them in our back yard.  Got them from my mom--she found them in her garage.  We think we might need one or two more for the ambiance they give to the back yard.

Our weekend was nice and relaxing.  We went to the parade, had a barbecue, and were nice and lazy.  Turbo played enough video games to get a blister on his thumb (don't judge--the kid has just finally figured out how to play them so he's getting the blisters, not me).  He also ran around outside enough to get totally eaten by the mosquitoes and have a soaking water gun fight.  All round a pretty good weekend.

We are learning to love the DVR.  Turbo likes the pause feature, I like the skipping commercials features, Nick likes the fact he can watch TV shows when he wants.  A win for all of us.

Bruiser likes to carry tools around.  The kid has run off with lots of Nick's sockets and wrenches.  He'll carry them all over and then set them down in odd places.  Nick is always hunting them down now.

So, that about covers the random around the testosterone house for this week.  Go check out the rest of the random at Keely's and link your own up.

I love love LOVE my DVR. The pause feature, the fact you get to record something when you're not able to watch it (I was never able to figure out my VCR back in the day), and the fast forward feature so I don't have to sit through commercials. It's such a great thing :)

LOVE being able to skip commercials!!! Mosquitoes... Grrrr! You should get Cintranilla to put in your tiki torches, that will deture the mosquitoes.

Love my DVR, but I am spoiled with out it in the rest of my life. Can't fast forward the commercials on the shows I haven't recorded. Can't fast forward to the next song on the radio, LOL.

Oh I love tiki's or at least I think I would. We haven't gotten any yet.
