Today is the first day as a single parent

The wife left yesterday afternoon. Yesterday I survived basically through bribery. We went to Dairy Queen, then had pizza for dinner. Today, we've been a little more busy. I took them to the mall to play at the playplace, get The Boy a haircut, and buy some necessary items at Target, including Hi-ho Cherry-o. This is to keep the daughter occupied, as she's in the right age bracket. Fortunately, The Boy seems to enjoy it, as well, though not as much as the computer, which he seems intent on trying to spend his entire childhood on. We are pretty good about monitoring him on the computer and the time he spends on the computer, so it's not too dire...

We're having chili-cheese dogs tonight. It's fun being dad.

Yum, did you safe me one?
We had home made hamburgers last night, I was to lazy to cook.

You go Steve! You can do it! You da man! I know they outnumber you, but you are smarter than they are, and bigger. Too bad I'm not with you this week... and I could use some of your air conditioning! This heat wave has me almost yelling "I'm a goldfish!" or whatever it is you make the kids yell...

I think you're enjoying this more than you're letting on!
