Beware of the Fork Forager, the Spoon Sandbagger, the Plate Pirate, the Bowl Bandit and the Cup Crook. We have them running around the house. I have two forks in my silverware drawer for a family of four. Where did they go? Bowls disappear though I currently have 6 in my cabinet. Thankfully the plates are in good supply so they don’t run out. Cups, I am down to the cups we get from businesses or coffee cups. Spoons come and go, sometimes I have five or six in the kitchen, other times we are down to two or three.
Who takes them you might ask…I have my suspicions. I have an artist rendering of what the thief might look like.
When asking the “victims” in the house (Brittany and Zachary), the answer always comes out as one of two things: “It’s not me” or “I don’t know”. I want to keep my loved ones safe from this swindler, this buccaneer but the evidence points in other directions:
So I ask you – is the evidence clear? I believe it is. I believe the thief, or thieves, is right here in my very own apartment. Is any utensil or place setting safe? Should I begin to only keep the paper and plastic varieties in my home and get rid of the glass, ceramic and silver version. Sometimes a paper plate just doesn’t hold as well as a nice ceramic one. And on the rare occasion that we eat at the table, it looks much better set with our mismatched plates as opposed to the boring white paper variety. Then there is the red Solo cup, though very nice, we don’t even buy the Solo variety, it’s usually Wal-Mart or whatever store brand I might see. So I must say, if you see either of the faces below, keep your utensils in plain sight, count all your cups and hide the plates. You don’t want to this to happen to you.
I had a basketball game today and I won. I had a very aggressive game the most aggressive I’ve ever had. I got the ball a lot and shot the ball a buch. Sadly only scored once, but it was still a great game. Good job yellow team!
So i will try to post sort of frequently about things i find interesting. I am playing basketball and i will probably post about that. I didnt play football this year because i dont like it anymore. I will be playing baseball but i have a while before that. I will try to post only facts about me or anything else some things might be opinions actually alot might be an opinion. School is starting up and i am going to try as hard as possible (wich i do anyways) to get good grades. I am in the 8th grade and im not really looking forward to freshman year in highschool. I have thought about where i want to go and I think I want to go to South Shore Vo-Tech. I am not possitive but i do think i will be going there.
Zachary turned 13 this past Sunday and I still just can’t believe it. He’s getting so old and I am not ready for two teenagers in the house!! Just a few of the pictures I could find. I have so many more but all before having a computer so I don’t have any real young ones of him on here. One of these days, I hope to go through all my pictures and put them on a disk. Here are some good ones for now though. I love you Zachary!!

Zac’s basketball team, Autotec, has made it to the finals! They start Monday night at the Middle School at 6:30 if you feel like coming out to watch some kids basketball.
Today we went into Boston to see the Harry Potter exhibit at the Museum of Science. Even Eric came, who hadn’t slept since the day before came, which made the day even more perfect! That was the coolest thing! Thank you Tanya for helping us get the passes and passes for a future visit to the Museum. We always have such a good time while we are there. Brittany found out if she were to go to Hogwarts, she would be in Griffendor. The only two drawbacks I saw was that one – you couldn’t take pictures. I would have taken so many if I could have and the second one – there was a girl who walked around and talked in a bad British accent the whole time. She was pretty bad, but it was funny none the less.
Afterwards we headed over to Fire n Ice for their brunch buffet. If you haven’t tried it before, it’s the best $13.95 a person can spend!!
Zac is playing basketball this season with the town of Whitman. He plays for Auto Tec with Coach Anderson and he’s not too bad at the game. He plays the 1st and 3rd quarter of the games and for the most part, plays most of those quarters. He’s a pretty good little player if I do say so myself. It’s a nice change from football, where he played in only a couple of plays. Unfortunately, I can’t understand basketball really at all, so I just yell all the time, without knowing if I should. More often than not, I just copy whoever I’m sitting with. It works. In case you are interested, he plays on Saturdays at the Middle School. I can give you times if you are interested.
So, I’ve spent most of the night trying to figure out what to put in my very first post that Tanya gave me an idea for….flashback Friday. With the kids getting so old, I thought that would be a perfect thing to write about, but what memory would I put in…I wanted to go back a little ways because I just can’t get over how big/old the kids are getting. Brittany will be a freshman in high school next year!! Zachary will be done with elementary and starting middle school! I feel so old. So here is a few pictures from the JDRF Walk in 2005, the year that started our walking as a family.
