Everything is about as peachy as it can be these days.

You are just borrowing trouble saying that.

I was careful not to say how long the state of peachiness would last. If I had said, "Everything is peachy and hopefully it will stay that way", that would be tempting fate.

We'll just have to wait to see if I was careful enough.

Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

When WWIII starts we know who to blame.

Shhhh! I haven't finished depositing my payoff into all my off-shore accounts yet.


Besides, if WWIII starts, it won't be Lookout material because it will have it's own room, right?

I think the whole point of a World war is, it is not confined to a room.

Peachy? PEACHY? I had an Epic Fail Day as a Reserve Mommy.

My client's daughter + 3 offspring are still in town. The little lad needed cavities filled & the dentist squeezed him in today. Could I look after the four year old & four month old for a few hours? No problem but if Miss Thing is in Miss Thing mood, don't expect me to get much work done while you're gone. They got that. We were good.

Apparently I suck at colouring. My cats look like wolves & my horses are too skinny. But I do passable Christmas tree. Adding insult to injury: "Aunt Sue can't sing right." Tell me something I don't know.

Feeding babies is easy enough... until the little buggers, AFTER they've been well & thoroughly burped, power puke a stale load all over your pant legs. They promptly proceed to have a really nasty diaper/onesy overflow.

Thankfully, Mom, dental patient & Grampa came home right then & there. I reeked of... all of it. Quick shower, borrowed clothes while mine ran through the wash, (I needed a few items to make up the last load anyway), & all was well.

Cute baby, engaging little grin - almost worth being literally shat upon.

Well, I'll concede that point. But not until after FedEx deliversa relatively small but very, very heavy package to my house.

Then WWIII can start in the Lookout and take over as many rooms at it wants.

Hey, what's in the package? You can tell us; honestly. We'll keep it a secret.

As long as you promise not to tell a soul...


It's a 12 pk of bottles of maple syrup. I don't want to run out, on the off chance that Lint and FB are right.

At £6 for 250g at our local supermarket, it's already a viable alternate currency.

You're right! I have no recollection of starting this thread.

MA, I'm going to hire you to be my memory keeper from now on.
