The Spreadsheets Eat Out

IMG_0929

The little Spreadsheets have been to plenty of restaurants.

They love In’N’Out, Chick Fil-A, Firehouse Subs (for the drinks), Rosa’s, and sometimes Phil’s Ice House.

All of these places have one thing in common- no waiters.

On the off chance that we go somewhere with a waiter, the little Spreadsheets are both confused and annoyed.

They cannot understand why we have to wait to pick out food, wait for the food to be brought to us,  and then wait for the check at the end.

Sibling Friends: Learning to Let Go of the Mom Guilt

I remember summer mornings spent playing Chex Quest (an awesome game we got in a cereal box), Where in Time is Carmen San Diego, and Roller Coaster Tycoon. I remember afternoons spent jumping on the trampoline playing games like “Surfin’ USA” (this involves coating the entire trampoline with a thick layer of dish soap and then spraying it with the hose, while running across and yelling “SURFIN’ USA!”, it’s a miracle we made it out with out any broken bones), “Wally Ball” soccer with a giant exercise ball in the living room,  and hours spent at the Rec Center pool attempting to touch the bottom in the 12 foot section.Read More »

And they’re often just stupid decisions like, what type of bread should we buy, and should I buy a new computer, or should we take the kids to the park, just stupid stuff.

Today is the celebration of one of the best decisions I ever made.
