Seeing as how it’s the last day of March and for some God forsaken reason, we still have snow in our forecast for this week, I thought a post about summertime could potentially bring about some good warm weather vibes. You know, the “whole speak it into existence” thing. Worth a try right, so I’m going to take you guys back to when the temps were high, the grass was green, and the snow was gone. Hopefully, Mother Nature will read this post and get the hint to get off her lazy rear end.

Regarding the title of the post, I have to direct that question to my male readers: have you ever had someone kick your balls??? No no no, not those balls, this is a family site remember? I’m talking about things like soccer balls, kick balls, etc. Fefe & I were just reminiscing about a ball related story; Tre’s first soccer season. Contrary to popular belief, getting your balls kicked can actually be kind of fun.

Agent Santa (Part 2)

He Knows Who’s Naughty & Nice

Welcome back for part 2 of our Agent Santa series.  Be sure to catch up on part 1 if you missed it.

Once the lists were created, it was onto phase 2: “Operation Bad Credit”, where all the magic is made.  We’re well past the age-old practice of buying gifts and hiding them in the house, too risky.  A while back, we switched to ordering everything online, but even that technique has outlived its usefulness. We grew tired of all the questions regarding this box and that box, since the mailman clearly didn’t understand the importance of delivering packages while kids are in school (talk about selfish).  Now days, we order gifts online and have them delivered to a friend’s house, this way everything is out of sight; no questions asked. The only problem with this option is the hassle in getting all the gifts to the house and wrapped at the last minute.  This is where my super-agent stealth training came in.  Do you have any idea how difficult it is to sneak box after box into the house, down 2 flights of stairs into the basement, and to secure them out of sight, without waking up sleeping children?  I remember dropping a box at one point and going all Jason Borne and diving behind the couch for cover because I thought the noise startled the boys.  Luckily, they didn’t wake up and I didn’t have to use my nerve agent darts.
