Bring on the W[h]ine

If these bottles were in my house right now instead of on the shelf at Macaroni Grill where we went for hubby’s birthday dinner last week, I would have cracked one open by now!

Bring on the W[h]ine!

I need some cheese with my whine! Still no answer from the insurance on the wrecked car, so we are still down one car.

Today Nils is on duty at the fire station. Thankfully my friend Jenn came by this evening and noticed my van in the driveway with a DEAD FLAT tire or we would have discovered it tomorrow morning when I would have needed to drive all 4 kids to school.

Another blessing of having a 17 yr old son, he took off the flat tire and put on my spare for me.


always worse the next day………

Not such a good birthday memory 😦

Matt is OK, bruised, cut and abraised (mostly from the air bag, which probably protected his face from getting majorly messed up, maybe even saved his life??

Lady turned (thru RED turn signal) into Matt’s path (green light) and his couldn’t stop in time.  His car will probably be totalled, plus I doubt we will get enough $$ from her insurance to replace what he had 😦  His car was towed to the junk yard.

Oh and Nils was on duty, but the Palm Beach County Firefighters were really nice to us.

Tomorrow we have to deal with all the paperwork, the insurance, the … well all the rest.

Happy 45th Birthday to Nils

Today is Nils’ birthday – he is 45, he is also on duty at the fire station, so we will celebrate tomorrow!!!


This (left) is one of his presents from me – a new web site puffalicious.com – a place to record all his fishing adventures and catches on his new boat “Puffalicious” ….

I also got him THIS (for birthday AND Christmas!)

This is what he REALLY wanted, the top of the line one naturally!! 

What men will do to not have to stop and ask for directions!

No School, we’re going fishing!

The weather is GORGEOUS (73 degrees) the sun is out, the ocean is flat and calm, my kids don’t have school today (the rest of the Palm Beach County Public School do) and Matt actually isn’t working today either, so we are all (minus Mel, who has a school-friends’ birthday beach party to go to) are going out on the “Puffalicious”

Lots of photos will be taken!!

Semi-Retirement is OVER!

So Nils went back on duty at the Firestation today for the first time since July 10th (when we went to Costa Rica and his ripped his MCL and PCL surfing!) – it is healed enough for him to return, so his semi-retirement is over!

These are his cool shoes (he has a work pair and a smart pair, this is the smart pair 😉 that even a local DJ on the radio loves, talks and blogs about!  I’m telling you these men are 2 in a million!

Semi-Retirement is OVER!

for *NILS* that is!!

He goes back to work at the Fire Dept tomorrow after being out since July 19th (when we left for Costa Rica) …. his knee is finally better enough to go back to work (although not fully healed)

As is Nils’ M.O. he is playing hard to the LAST minute!! Went out fishing all day on Friday (see his catch on his page went toadie fishing again this morning and this afternoon we are having a big fish fry at our neighbours (fishing buddy of Nils’)

It’s all go here!
