Dead Dog Toys and a Crock Pot

Well, the storm that was promised us, delivered today. It rained and rained and rained. All morning. Know when it stopped? After lunch, just in time for me to do my yard duty. Damn. I was at the tetherballs duty too. I hate tetherballs. It's just no fun to break up the fights over ropies, holdies, fasties, slowies, etc. I say the same thing all the time. "There are no "ies" in tetherball." It's super annoying. I have found that there is a hiding place though. It's right out in plain sight, but if I am not directly in the middle of the courts, they don't come over to tattle. I guess the extra few steps just isn't worth losing their place in line. Anyway, I had to go out and serve it, but there was a plus! Since it rained this morning (the AM recess got rained out), the tetherballs were never put on the poles!! Yay! I lucked out. It was easy. I just watched the kids play with the dangling chains from the missing tetherballs. Awesome!
Don't let this really cute face fool you.
Maya is a toy destructor. This cute cupcake is history.
This green ball is history. She's chewed through almost all of her toys. She still has her big flea, but it's missing its eyes. It's just a matter of time before she gets the stuffing out of it. I need to find some super duper heavy duty toys.

I prepped my dinner for tomorrow night. I have limited time in the mornings-as those who have children to get up and out do, so I prepped the meal tonight. All I have to do in the morning is add all of the stuff to the pot, and open some cans. What's for dinner tomorrow night, you ask? Well it's Pirate Stew of course! Aaaaarghhhh! I do live with boys.
