On a cold and snowy night, you decided it was time to come.

Early and in a hurry.

52 minutes, to be exact.

From that moment on, you have lived up to that...early and in a hurry.

Why walk when you can run?

Why sit when you can play?

I had visions of what you would look like and they were always of a boy with blond hair and blue eyes.

Running with the wind.

We almost lost you a few times and you have caused us to quite literally fall on our knees in prayer.

More than once.

More than we can count.

Your laughter fills our home and we notice its absence when you are gone. You truly give meaning to the phrase, 'a breath of fresh air.'

God has given you to us to teach us that each day is a gift. An adventure. A day worth living.

Your faith is so simple. You believe that Jesus is your Savior with all your heart.

I am so thankful that you are my son; that I was chosen to be your mom.

Happy Birthday, Alex.

All Done

For a grand total of $83.89, Matthew has a running car.
With a new clutch, brakes and oil change.

Can't beat that!

The best part for me was this morning.
He officially moved out.

Of my car.


The kid is great, but he is a slob.


So, today begins the madness. It's all fun, but it's's concert season, beginning with Alex's concert tonight. He'll be the shaggy haired kid playing the drums in the back. The one who is dreaming of a basketball court, but has parents who made him sign up for band.

I am exhausted.

Let me say it again, just so you can truly understand.

We have a slight issue happening in our house right now, and if I wasn't living it, I would not for a second believe it.

It is THAT crazy.

Mollie is in heat. I mean...HEAT. As in, give me a boy cat now so that I can shut her up.
She cries this high pitched cry all day long. And all night long. I actually slept on the couch last night so that I could let M sleep...he's got concerts this weekend, after all.

She wailed for a male ALL NIGHT LONG.

Now, it is kinda sorta my fault. We had an appointment to have them spayed and the vet had to cancel. I did reschedule and then had to cancel because I needed surgery. And now? Financially, it has to wait until after Christmas, though if we have another night of this, I will have them fixed instead of my car.

So we get to listen to her yowl. It's not quite a yelp and not quite a howl. It's a definite yowl.

I am sure Maggie is not far behind.


OK, I now promise to not blog about my cats for a few days, though I may not have much to talk about. It's a slow news week here in our corner of the world, and I am not complaining!!

Play Date

It's been crazy busy around here, but we did have time to schedule a play date.

For the kitties.

At my house.

My kittens came from our neighbors cat, who snuck out for a few days of wild fun and came home...ummmm....with child. Or children. She had 5 babies under Kasey's dresser and after trying not to fall in love, I did. One died right after it was born and one found a home with another family. We took Maggie and Mollie and our neighbors kept the runt of the litter, whom they named 'Slowy'.

We wanted to see if the sisters would still recognize each other, so over Slowy came to play.

They looked at each other and ran and spent the rest of their time hiding.

And hissing.

What was I expecting, you ask?

I dunno. Hugs and kisses maybe?

I forgot that they are CATS.

M spent the whole time rolling his eyes.

Hard to picture that one, isn't it?

I was expecting them to love each other. I thought we'd take some photos and serve a snack of fish flavored nibbles...instead I have claw marks in my leg.

I think from now on, we'll visit via mail.

The Perfect Sandwich

Turkeygravycranberrystuffing...on oatmeal bread.

The absolute most perfect Sunday after Thanksgiving lunch!

It's best if served alongside some movie you've TiVo'd that starts with 'The Christmas...'

As in The Christmas Box. Or The Christmas List. Or The Christmas Wish.

We've got them all, so take your pick. I'm sure there's a few others on there also...the sappier, the better!


The hot, dry Santa Ana's blew through yesterday and wreaked havoc on our part of the world. Leaves and bark and chunks of trees are everywhere, but not one little red bow came undone from our house.

We escaped to the movies yesterday...Brian and I went to see Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium (charming!!) and the others to Beowulf (not!).

Michael also scored the hot ticket item on one of the boys lists and had to run out and pick that up, then home for supper...enchiladas.

And today is a cool, chilly day. We had no Sunday school/Confirmation today, so we took a slow easy morning involving chocolate chip pancakes and then went to late church. Drove home and ate the above mentioned sandwiches, and one very content dad is asleep on the couch. Alex and Matthew are out in the neighborhood with one group of friends and Brian and his group are on the go-cart. I woke up with a neck that only moves one way and have already decided that I would rather look the other I'll be at the chiropractor tomorrow morning.

Other than that, the dishwasher is running and so are the washer and dryer. The house definitely needs a cleaning, but it's just not worth trying to do with so many bodies in it, so it too will happen tomorrow. I am thinking supper will be an easy one...risotto with roasted asparagus, though I'm not sure I'm up for the 'where's the meat?' debate, so I may have to roast some Italian sausage on the side. I'm feeling tooooo lazy to think about it right now....

Love is...Christmas lights.

The Buffs beat Nebraska this morning and M was in a great mood.

It's all about the up to the roof he went to hang lights.

It's love, I tell ya.

It becomes a neighborhood thing. A competition. Who can get their lights up before anyone else? We came in 2nd place this year...across the street started right after breakfast.

Oh well. There's always next year.

For supper tonight we'll forget about the turkey and have baked eggs. Baked eggs and champagne. Or champagne and baked eggs. I am hoping to be in my jammies by 6:00pm, watching something on TV other than football. Last night we broke out Miracle on 34th Street, which some of M's students had never seen.

So fun.

Back to tonight. Alex is at KeKe's's his birthday, so they're going to dinner and a movie. I'm assuming a sleep-over will be worked out later tonight, too. Brian is playing over at a neighborhood friends house and Matthew is out with Jen.

It's all quiet on the western front.

Gobble, Gobble

Happy Turkey Day!

The turkey is in the oven...all 25.1 lbs of him. It's become some sort of challenge for big a bird can we get? At church last night he kept telling people that HIS turkey is 25 big is yours?

Must be a guy thing.

For the most part, I do Thanksgiving pretty close to how Michael's family does. Why mess with something great? I still Italian-ize it somewhat...starting with antipasto. There's just something about a large platter of food on the table surrounded by a bunch of hungry people.

Makes me smile.

So, our dinner tonight will be turkey, (we got him in the oven, but we may never get him out!) gravy, wild rice stuffing, mashed potatoes, Aunt Fran's sweet potatoes, (I have no idea who Aunt Fran is, but she makes a mean dish of sweet potatoes) green beans, rolls, and 2 kinds of cranberries. Missing will be sea foam jello...along with my Mom and Tom, who are always here for Thanksgiving. =0(

We will have students coming over for dinner, so I have made mass quantities of food. I did buy a Costco pumpkin pie and made a Texas sheet cake, so we are set.

I am thankful for so much, but this Thanksgiving I am especially thankful for my Uncle John and his new kidney. He's coming home from the hospital today and will be eating real food and sleeping in his own bed. Please continue to pray for him and his recovery, and also for the family who made the choice to donate the kidney...what an amazing gift.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

There's a...

...hole in the wall, dear Liza?

Not anymore!

And yes, the paint color is slightly off. We have like a zillion shades of yellow on the paint shelf and I just picked one. Ah well, it will get us through Thanksgiving and I'll repaint it later. This is actually the wall that if we ever do the remodel, will come down and be a staircase upstairs.

Keywords...if. we. ever. do. the. remodel.

Don't hold your breath.

Though when the hole in the wall occurred, M looked at me and suggested that maybe we just remove the wall instead of fixing it.

It's a good thing there was a good show on the TV that night.


Last night, needing a snack and still reeling from the Bachelor finale, Brian and I made dessert. I stirred, he licked the bowl.


Chocolate souffles in a coffee cup...YUM!

The house is clean and the backyard is done. Tonight will be a bit crazy...Michael and Matthew are playing for church, so they need to be in Long Beach by 6pm. They'll be on the road at 4pm in order to beat traffic and will grab supper up there. The younger boys and I will leave a little bit after them and head for Huntington Beach and some auto parts store. Matthew's car needs a new clutch and I have to pick up the parts (all $70.00 of them, can you believe it????!!!What a blessing!) and deliver them by 6pm to the auto class. We'll then grab food and make church at 7pm.

On the way home, one of our cars will run by Nick's and pick up a pizza and we'll eat that when we get home. With a little champagne.

It's a holiday, after all.

Still Tuesday

It's late, but I haven't blogged in a few days. My body is tired, but my mind keeps going and know the story.

M is on break this week, a much needed break. There's alot going on at work and he's enjoying the chance to be home. Next weekend it all begins...concert after concert after concert. Plus a few more. He's tackled the backyard and has been driving me all over town in his really cute car. We even ventured to Peets this morning for coffee and the guy working there knew his name...he used to work at Starbucks. Too funny.

I had my final post-op appointment yesterday. Yet another 2 weeks of recovery because apparently I am doing too much.


I think the stress of The Bachelor just caught up with me. What's up with him?
And yes, I realize that I need to get a life!


Matthew's car has been towed to the community college a few towns away. They are in the process of working on it and have told us it should be ready in a week or so. For free. Well, for free labor...we buy the parts. Unbelievable. All applications are in for college, so that is a relief. He'll get accepted everywhere he chose to apply, so now we have time to make more thorough visits of the dorms. In the end he only applied to 4 schools, all relatively local, including our very own private Christian school on the hill.

Alex had a great practice last night and started on a 5on 5 league after school today. He's keeping up with school and I received 2 calls today from teachers...good calls. I knew I would. =0)

Brian had a final try-out for All-Stars and didn't make it. He was totally OK with it...Jack, his best friend didn't make it either. So we are now back to basketball, which means I am at the gym 7 days a week until April. At least it's warm!

M and I ran a bunch of errands today and took a teeny tiny break at our favorite Mexican place for Lobster Bisque. Supper tonight was from the February 2002 issue of Bon Appetit, and the page is so spotted you can tell it is a loved recipe. Chianti braised stuffed chicken...a favorite of my darling husband's. Such a yummy recipe. Tomorrow is a no cooking day for me and on Thursday? Well let's just say that I am still figuring out how long to cook the 25lb turkey I bought.

And now? Now I am off to dream land!

Sunday, November 18, 2007


My Uncle John has been on the transplant list for quite some time, and this morning the call came that they have a kidney for him.

Please pray for him, and for my Aunt Paula...and also for my cousins and their families. Uncle is already out of surgery and is in recovery. The surgery went well, so now they wait for the kidney to begin keep praying!

Saturday, November 17, 2007


Ever have one of those days that you'd call perfect? Today was one of of those in our house...and much needed!

The morning began with M and Alex at a basketball tournament. Alex fouled out in the 4th quarter of the his 1st game and came close in the 2nd. His team ended with one win and one loss, so tomorrow there are 2 games.

Meanwhile, Brian and I were at All-Star try-outs. Pretty intense, so we'll see how he does. Lots of good players, but he held his own. Worse case scenario...winter basketball.

Back at the home front, Matthew slept in and finished the last of his college applications.

And then, after my mid-day snooze (my surgery was 4 weeks ago...what's up with the nap thing?) Holly called and off we were to Disneyland.

What a blast. Cocktails at the Disneyland Hotel. I, of course, had my camera and after 3 pictures the battery died. My boys were relieved...they're done with this whole picture taking thing.

Holly and silly!

M and Billy.

Perfect Emily...can I come live with you? =0)

It's always fun to sit and tell our kids the crazy things we did in college. They roll their eyes and act bored as we keep telling the same stories over and over.

And over.

And for the record, my version of the teacup story is the true version. Billy is WRONG. At least that's how I remember it...


After cocktails, they were heading back to the park for dinner. Only half our family has passes right now and the other half aren't renewing their passes till January, so we said goodbye until Christmas.

And off we went to Nick's.

We walked in to a packed restaurant, but immediately Hector got us a table, much to the dismay of other people who had been waiting.

We're special.

One antipasto salad, one large pizza and one order of mussels later, plus a bottle of wine for the big kids and soda's for the younger crowd and we were done. Hector came and sat with us for awhile and we were able to catch up and learn even more about him.

It was the perfect day.

I couldn't think of a better way to spend a Saturday. All my boys, plus great friends...all together.


Friday, November 16, 2007


...a whole in the wall, dear Liza, dear Liza...

Everybody sing, now.

It's in a place where if you are talking to your parents or they are talking to you and you get upset and storm off hitting the wall along the way then this is where the hole would be.

How's that for a run-on sentence?


All together now.


Alex didn't meet his end of the bargain regarding something at school, so today I am a helicopter mother. I am back in middle school, making sure he writes down his homework and has it signed off by his teacher. Each teacher. Each class.

Makes for a strange day...I have to be there approximately every 47 minutes. I can deal. I have all the time in the world for this child.

He was warned and last night didn't take the news all that well; hence, the wall. It's all OK...we have spackle and paint and he has a 4 day weekend next week.

He may have given up, but we haven't.

Before our children were even born, M and I chose life verses for them...a verse or two or three that would start them off on their path until they were old enough to choose their own. They were the 1st verses they memorized and we've spent a lot of time talking to them about why we picked those particular verses for them. Quite simply, they are our favorites.

We chose Alex's years ago when I was only 17 weeks pregnant. And in labor. Again. It was a scary time and once again, the DR's kept saying it wasn't looking good. But in my heart, I knew it would be OK. I knew.

I knew.

11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:11-13

Alex loves the story, so last night between the after supper discussion and the wall incident and before the chocolate chip cookies came out of the oven, I told it to him again. And why dad and I chose them. And how they mean even more to me today than they did on that night so long ago.

God has a plan for you, Alex. He knows you and He WILL listen.

Wax Lips and Girlie Girl Shoes

Wax lips!!!

Other than that, we are pretty boring. There's just not a whole lot going on. The basketball season officially opens next weekend, but we're playing a tournament this coming one to get the team ready for the road. In the meantime, it's been quiet with only 3 practices per week and nothing on the weekends. Marching band ended last weekend and so have the 7am practices, which makes for more people sharing bathrooms at the same time. They'll work it out, I'm sure. Brian is also in a lull...his soccer season is over and All-Stars won't start until December.

So it's been kinda quiet around here this week.

I did drive to LA for my 1st ever, real life board meeting. When my business sold last June, I was asked to serve on the board of the non-profit that is now running it. I agreed, not quite knowing what I was getting myself into.

Typical Michele. Jump 1st, think after.


I knew I was in trouble early on. Off came the flip flops and on went the real life girl shoes. And then? The President of the board spent 40 minutes talking about himself and all his accomplishments. I guess you do that in board meetings. They had passed out folders with everyone's bio's in it...couldn't we just have read about him?

I guess not.

Speaking of bio's...they had written one on me. Gotta love how good they can make you sound on paper. Talk about s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g the truth. So they go around this rather large table and everyone introduces themselves and then talks forever about how great they are.


My turn comes and I tell them my name and that I am a wife and stay-at-home mom and that I feel blessed to be able to work with so many accomplished people.


Right then and there I knew that me and my girlie shoes would be eating lunch alone.

Which we didn't. It turned out to be rather exciting stuff and I am going to be proud to serve on this board. They listened to all my ideas and really seemed to want my vision to come to life, which is pretty cool. Made the real life girlie shoes worth wearing.

I came home exhausted and took a little snooze before the boys invaded my territory. I am craving Nick's, but it is Wednesday and I don't like going on Hector's day off. I'll make lemon chicken and use the last of the basil plant to make some pesto. There's also some asparagus that will be roasted, which makes for alot of green on the plate, but I'll survive. How anal is that?

Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse...

...for breakfast!

Alex slept at a friends house last night and this morning they stumbled over to our house.


I always make pancakes, but this morning Matthew had dragged out our old waffle maker to take to school tomorrow. The trumpet section is hosting a waffle cook-off...apparently my son's idea.

And while trying to find the waffle maker, the blender got dropped.

I've mentioned our bad car karma, but we also have bad blender karma. We only use it a few times a year, so it's not that big of a deal, but I think M and I have gone thru a dozen or so blenders in our marriage.

And every time one breaks, I crave a pina colada...or in my case, a chi-chi. Rum and I don't mix and I'll spare you the story, but it involved a night of karaoke and a video tape. It was supposed to be a duet, but my husband was laughing so hard that he couldn't sing. Imagine that.

Back to the boys and their waffles. 4 boys, so I am thinking a dozen waffles. And being who I am, I made 16...just in case. Nope. 28 waffles later and they were full. Plus a pitcher of OJ and a ton of bacon.


They are now laying all over the furniture in the family room playing MarioKart. I'm not sure they'll be moving anytime soon.

Brian is feeling better. His cough is a little worse, but the earache is gone. Matthew is at the beach with's a beautiful day. M had to work and crawled out to his car this morning. He needs a break, the poor guy, and fortunately will get one next week. He works so hard so that I Just blog.


Sunday, November 11, 2007


Brian napping amongst sleeping kitties and laundry. =0)
Brian's cough went away and turned into an ear infection this morning. Poor baby. He woke me up early, so I got him settled with some medicine. I think this is only his 3rd ear infection ever...unbelievable!

So, prayers needed for my little one.

Today is a quiet day. I took the big boys to church while M stayed home and made omelets for the little prince. We've all napped on and off, though Lord of the Rings is now playing in the family room. Alex went to watch a basketball game at the high school and Matthew is celebrating the end of marching band season in the horizontal position. =0)

Supper tonight is manicotti and I am just about to go out and make some focaccia, too. It does need an hour to rise, so I should get to it. For the carnivores in this house (uh, that would be everyone but me) I will throw some italian sausage alongside. Either that or there'll be talk of eating my cats, who I like again. Today. Check with me tomorrow on that one!

Last night was a dinner party at some friends from the college. He's a VP in charge of everything, so the champagne and stories were flowing all night. It felt so good to be out and about, though my body is now tired. Good tired. Normal tired. I am thankful!

Friday, November 9, 2007

Answer to Prayer

BooBear had a horrible cough last night, so I decided to keep him home with me today. We watched Happy Feet and Zoom and had a 'nicpic' in the family room. (A nicpic is a backwards picnic...eaten inside. Yes, we are strange.)

I have been working on a project for M and while doing some research, I found out that the local community college has an auto technician certificate program. I called and they will fix Matthew's car for the price of the part plus a few pizzas and sodas.

Ummm...that would be a savings of like $1400.00.

The part is cheap, it's the 7-8 hours of labor that's killing us.

As I was talking to this guy, Bryan with a 'y' on the phone, I mentioned that my husband is a teacher and blah, blah, blah. Teacher? We'll change your oil, too. Just throw in some brownies.

I honestly think I am in love.

So, I called M and gave him the 411 and he said go for it. Worse case scenario? Well, I think we are part of the worst case scenario. It's parked, undriveable, outside our house.

And Brian with an 'I'? He's feeling much better. Sometimes I think a day with mom is the best medicine. Tonight he'll stay here with Alex while M and I head on campus to see Godspell. It's always fun to see the students we need a night out! I might even talk him into a peppermint mocha beforehand! =0)

Car Woes

We lead a really, really blessed life.

But we have really, really bad car karma.

And so she sits , parked, until we can figure out what to do. Again. She needs a part that starts with a number, followed by a comma, three more numbers, a dot, and ends with two zeros.

Meanwhile, my car is sitting, too. It needs a part that starts with a number, followed by a comma, three more numbers, a dot, and ends with two zeros. Are you choking? Or joking? I first choked when I heard and then asked if it was a joke.


I'm thinking we would have done better in the horse and buggy era...or that we would thrive in a place with great public transit. Beam me up, Scotty!

Ah well, it could be worse.

I did remind God this morning that my husband is a church worker. I know he remembers, but I just thought I'd throw it in my morning prayers just in case.

I will say that after the last car mishap, we signed up for AAA. So all of these tow trucks come quickly when you call...just like that.

Shoot me now.


Wednesday, November 7, 2007

Lots of Singing

This morning Matthew's choir performed at a local festival...sponsored by his dad. Not really his dad, but by his dad's choir. So I guess it kinda was sponsored by his dad. Close enough.

Anyway, local high schools perform for an adjudicator as well as for each other. At the end of each event, M's main choir performs.

So today, I went and saw Matthew and his dad perform. Not together, but on the same stage within a few minutes of each other. Pretty cool.

Even more cool? Three weeks ago, I thought there was NO WAY that I would be able to attend this event. God is good. I feel like I've climbed a mountain...quite literally! I am sooo thankful!

Recipes Needed...

...for cat.

Baked. Broiled. Casseroled.

And yes, I am well aware that casseroled is not a word, but at this moment, I don't really care.

Below are my two kitties, taken yesterday. When I still liked them.

And here? They've discovered toilet paper and have tp'd my house not once. Not twice. But three times. Today. THREE. TIMES. TODAY.

Look at her...caught in the act.
Casseroled, I tell ya.

Fortunately for the cats, yet unfortunately for me, the boys walked in after roll #2 of toilet paper, which, by the way, was all over the house. And I was acting a bit...ummm...psycho. PSYCHO. I said every cuss word I know, in ITALIAN, plus a few in Hungarian. (That I picked up in the Yellow Pub in Gyor, Hungary. Remind me tell you about THAT evening!)

Anyway, I was going crazy at cats and doing that thing that pet people do, which I've never understood, yet now I do it. I was having a discussion with my cats.

Matthew told me later that they were thinking of selling tickets.

Thanks, son. You were my favorite.

Anyway, back to cat #1 and cat #2.

I'm thinking stew. I'm pretty sure the dog next door likes stew.

Sunday, November 4, 2007


It all began with three men and a late night apple pie...

Saturday, November 3, 2007



Peanut butter cup cupcakes.

I'd offer to share, but the vultures ate every last one. (Except for the 1 I hid away for later!)

Our weekend isn't feeling a whole lot like a weekend. M was at a festival with his choir all day and went straight to a concert this evening. Matthew has slept the day away and is currently throwing things around...I mean cleaning up his room. Alex has been in and out and is now at open gym playing basketball. Of course. Brian had a play-off game this morning (they lost) and is now at his friend Jack's house for spaghetti and a movie...I'll pick him at 9pm. I ventured out on my own today and have held myself to only 2 mindless hours of television. I am just about done with least I hope!

Speaking of Brian....he is going to play All Stars (soccer) this winter, and has decided to give up basketball. He's found his thing and we'll run with it....I guess all those years of having big brothers kick balls at him from the end of the hall has payed off.

Out with the warm with the cold outdoors!

Should be fun!


Friday, November 2, 2007

Scary, Silly and Sweet

Scary! My neighbor, Alba, whom I did NOT recognize when she knocked on my door! Awesome costume!

Silly Brian and his friend Sasha.


Matthew and Jen.

Day 2 of NaNoWriMo and I have written very little. I had a great DR visit yesterday and am on 2 more weeks of 'house arrest' with very limited driving. All is well...God is good!

Last night was Band Spectacular and Michael went. He said Matthew's solo was awesome...wish I had been there. Tonight is Homecoming, so I am planning on going over tonight to watch the show.

Thursday, November 1, 2007

Day 1

Today is the beginning of NaNoWriMo and according to their guidelines, I need to write 1, 667 words. 1,667 words per day, in order to reach the 50,000 word goal.

I already have writers block. It's not a good sign.

So instead of writing, I am dreaming of Boulder today...dreaming of when my boys were small and the highlight of each day was racing out to meet the gang at the playground. Back to the time where we had no money, but didn't really need much. Back to the time when we had no mortgage and only one car...and while it wasn't easy, it's funny how different things seem when you look back. Simpler.

My boys are growing up. And for a little while this morning I am going to be sad.

Last night was fun, but different for us. Matthew's friends stopped by and hung out for awhile. Alex and his friends were out in the neighborhood. Michael was suddenly in charge of a bunch of 9 year old boys, because their dad's didn't feel like going out, so he had them hopping! (M did call at one point and said that usually he does this after a few cocktails!) I stayed home and helped hand out candy...lots and lots of candy. I missed our normal big party...lots. So next year we are back on...God willing! Brian scored some banana laffy taffy, which he gladly handed over. YUM!
Brian was the talk of the school, which is exactly what he wanted. Sigh. He was so funny as a cheerleader...dancing and singing. Last night people kept giving him extra candy for having such a great costume. What a crazy kid. Fits in well with this crazy house. =0)

So, now on to today. I have an appointment this afternoon, and I am hoping to get clearance to drive. Don't tell, but I have to drive tonight no matter what. Matthew has a show (he's bussed over), Alex has to be at the same show (he's not), and Brian has a soccer play-off game. All at the same time! M will take Alex and stay for their show. I will take Brian, and once there I can sit and watch. We'll eat Italian Beef sandwiches in shifts beforehand so everyone will get fed. I'm thinking Brian and I will swing by Nick's after his game and pick up a pizza to surprise the guys with when they get home later...they'll be cold and hungry.

Besides, I miss my friend Hector!
