guess what I'm making for lunch?

Reservations!! Woohoo! The boys and Mr. M are off today so we're on our way to Dullsville's gourmet temple - the Chinese buffet. Yum! You'd be excited too if you saw the other restaurants around here.

After lunch Boy12 and I are going downtown to get him some new pants (trousers) because he's developed this nasty habit of growing a couple of inches every few months. Boy9 is hot on his heels so we're now placing bets on how long it will be until I'm the shortest person in the family.

And thank you all so much for your great comments on my German school system post. We (Mr. M, Boy9 and I) are scheduled for a conference with Boy9's teacher on Wednesday afternoon. We'll see if anything comes of that.

Enjoy lunch and the shopping. Get's expensive to buy clothing at that age. Not only do they grow like mad, that's when they get picky, too!

Reservations are always the most fun type of lunch to make. I hope you had luck with the trousers! It's only breakfast here and fast aproaching your dinner time and I still can't even think about what I'd eat for lunch yet!

An English friend of mine says that when he was a kid he went with a bunch of “lads” to see a John Wayne movie at the cinema. In the movie, Wayne said he had to put on his “pants”, which caused all the “lads” in the cinema to erupt with laughter. American’s wouldn’t understand the joke.

I remember a time when even in America, “trousers” was the accepted term for that particular item of men’s apparel. Pants…pantaloons…was women’s apparel.

Obviously a crack in the American macho bullshit façade. ;)

Chris and I are addicted to the Chinese buffet in our town. We go so often the owner often gives us free food just for spending so much money there :O

just wanted to chime in and say hello after my hiatus! :D

I remember how glad I was when DS couldn't get his feet in my shoes! He would drag around the house in my best shoes and there was no stopping him. Well, those days are over.

Christina, where are you? Don't tell me you're still eating Chinese food... I don't believe you. :) Missed your funny bits, hope to hear from you soon!

Wow, I had Indian, Thai, Mexican and Greek while in Germany, but never German Chinese! Let's hope you're taking an Angie-eque blogging break and not suffering from a bout of food poisoning. :)
