the reason all the male children were put to death

if they were to grow up like the kids in my canoe camp (a dozen 11-14 yr old boys...no girls at all) then they should have been drowned as babies. remind me again to never breed. and if i have a boy to accidentally lose him in the mall.

last night i had an overnight. the guys finally got to sleep at 3:40 AM after i 1, told them it was noises off time; 2, took away their flashlights (now i have 5 nice flashlights if they dont come and claim them); 3, made the real trouble makers call their parents at 1 to tell them how they were being directly disobedient and were unable to follow the rules. at 3 they decided to start a game of foot ball. that was beyond enough. i got up told them to get in tents, shut up, dont move, keep lights off and then stood outside the tents for 1/2 hour until i was pretty sure they were asleep. if only i thought of that earlier.

at 7:30 when i got up and made breakfast i went out with a big pizza pan and metal spoon and banged it while yelling "good morning! get up, get out of your tents, pack up get ready to leave!" yay for me.

im exausted. i went home and tried to sleep and did some but couldnt get a deep sleep going. now im going to store to find sushi makings. sushi is my new fave thing. i buy it at safeway about 2x week. yesterday it was fun, cuz i bought it at 9 AM just after it was made. the nice lady making it talked to me for awhile and told me about it and said she would have lots more made in a bit, but i could only have the veggie ones. it was very good. ate it enroute to my house.

im still wearing pjs. at least i actually traded the pants for shorts. its freakishly hot. and wretchedly humid.

If you are having this much trouble, you have GOT to seriously think about upgrading your repitoire of ghost stories. There's nothing like a good ghost story to scare the kids silent long enough so you can sneak away and make some marvelously strange noises. Although many times the forest critters will do that for you. Then you can just say Wh-wh-what was that? and did you hear that? or you could get a tape.

okay, THAT is an awesome idea!! and also, if you had boys, i'm pretty sure they wouldn't be like that.
