Jeez....good thing I have kids!

I had today "off" from the library.  So what did I do, you might ask?

Got my oil changed, argued with the guy that I didn't think I was ready for new tires yet, arranged for the boys friends to go out with Fred on the boat tonight, bought shoes, looked for short sleeve shirts (too in 100 heat they are already putting out their fall stuff...and the bathing suits are 75% off, but VERY picked over), met Fred for lunch, went grocery shopping, put away groceries, cleaned kitchen, emailed students, did some grading, put away laundry, vacuumed and dusted downstairs, put books on hold for tonight's be picked up by Fred at the drive up window, made pasta salad, cleaned the oven AND....seasoned the steaks.

I was checked blogs before taking a dip and Owen comes up to me. 

"So....when does Dad get home?" (anxious to go out on the boat with friends)

"He is on his way.  He is picking up some books for me at the library.  I have class tonight."

"Did you make the pasta salad?"


"Did you get the steaks ready?"


"Do you know what I mean?  Did you season them?"

"Yes (insert eyeroll here)"

"Let me look at them."

(he goes and comes back)

"Did you use the kosher sea salt?"

"No, because I used Worcestershire sauce/"

"Oh.  Did you tenderize it?"


"Do you know how to tenderize it?"




Now I am going to take a dip with Mr. Know It All.
