March just flew by. Wow! I feel like time is going by too fast. There are only thirty days of school left! So, anyway...I should've known that the boys had an ulterior motive when they volunteered to steam the family room and study. They really just wanted to move the small sofa in the kitchen so that they could play RISK in comfort.
But,...I'm not above bribery. If that's what it takes to get the carpets shampooed, then I'm all for it.
P1 was watching Forrest Gump in her room. To use Matt Dilahunty's phrase...I was "stalking" the children.
In other news, P1 and I were reading our local paper's blog section last night. There was this one creationist chick who kept saying things like "No one has given evidence that living things adapt." and "Why don't we ever see macroevolution where fish come from dogs." I was heartily impressed when P1 became indignant and started ranting. My favorite rant was when she said, "No adaptation? No adaptation? Ok. Sure. Because, we see polar bears in the Mojave all the time." The apple does not fall far from the tree. Seriously... it scares me that there are people in the world who are not only ignorant, but outright opposed to having an INFORMED opinion.
