A Beautiful December Day

The boys and I had a fantastic time at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham today. We really lucked out with a 70 degree day in December, and even though it was cloudy and windy, the weather was pretty much perfect for our visit. We spent 3 of our 4 hour visit outside enjoying the train, lemurs, wolves, and the Catch the Wind exhibit. It was a great day for the remote sailboats! Inside, we were just enchanted with the Holiday Springs and Sprockets exhibit. Joey was so inspired that he came home and started drawing his own 'machines'. The exhibit runs through 1/5/09, so you still have time to go see it. We reupped our membership today, so here's to lots more memories and pictures at the museum in the upcoming year.
All my pics from today are here.

Sometimes life is not fair!

Nobody ever said life is fair, right? Today, I took the boys to the museum in Durham. We were there for over 4 hours having a blast. When we got home, I was tired and I put in frozen pizza. I thought I'd squeeze in a few chores waiting on it. I grabbed a bottle of spiedie marinade out of the pantry to pour on some meat. I brute force twisted the plastic safety seal off the top and went to shake the bottle. Spiedie marinade for those of you that don't know is mostly olive oil and Italian seasoning. What I didn't realize is that the cap had come loose with the safety seal. I shook, and the marinade went EVERYWHERE. Darn near made a grown woman cry. It was all over the inside of my pantry, on my kitchen floor, on my shirt, in my hair...just a COMPLETE MESS. I didn't get to eat, but at least the boys did while I cleaned up my very icky and untimely accident. If you stop by in the next few days, the house is still likely to smell like spiedie sauce:-( Go easy on me...
