Salsa has adapted great. I love that dog so much. She is hilarious with her little pack rat, traits..I love it! Today I found a pair of Jack's undies and one of his cowboy shooters. Also this morning she tried to steal Lily's pillow out of her room. Hilarious!
We are taking the kids to Borders this weekend. Lily has finished all of her new books..and Jack wants one with ..yep..you guessed it..firetrucks. I wish I was a good reader. I have so many wonderful books that I haven't finished. Justin bought me a few books.. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and The Art of Simple Food and never finished them yet. I suppose I could be reading while Jack naps or something but instead..I am either knitting or watching t.v. or cleaning. I want to read the books..but I haven't..
It is very windy, cold and rainy..and I hate it right now. Just not in the mood. I think I will have the hubby stop at Starbucks for some much needed coffee..its been way to long since I got me some of that.

So the next day..(yesterday) we were sitting around, bored..and we decided we needed more. We went to target and dropped the $170 for the game and instuments. We played for a long time last night. You can customize your band member..create a band name, buy some cool gear, either punk, rock, or goth. We switch off but for the most part, I am vocals, Justin on drums and Lily is bass..and you know what..we totally kick ass and it is the best $170 we've spent in a long time. What a fun family thing to do. I love video games now! Its kinda like karaokee but so much better! Weeee!!!! (p.s. pardon and grammer errors as for some reason my spell check doesn't work any more, wtf?)

After that, add the mashed lentils to the mixture. Then lightly oil a pie plate and put the veggie mixture in it. Then top it with the mashed potatoes.
Pop it in the oven for maybe 20 minutes and you have a savory dish. yum. However..it didn't win over my peeps. When the hubs found out what I was making he immediatly asked wheres the meat? Not today yo! Then he began to inform me he won't eat anything that is mixed with mashed potatoes..he likes them alone. Whatever. Jack cried..didn't even want to try. After what seemed like forever..(only really like 5 minutes) he took a bite and he said.."mm this is so good" Lily..well she took a bite and I told her to keep the comments to herself. Because anytime someone says anything..all the sudden everyone agrees with the said comment, besides the fact the were just scarfing it down. Justin made a turkey sandwich. He asked Lily if she wanted some. And you know what she said that little booger..she said "Oh ya, then I won't have to eat this garbage!" I 'bout choked on my food. WTF!! I was totally enjoying the dish and I had hoped the children would too, not to mention that is chock full of healthy things. Justin scolded Lily and said how that is rude.. and then went on how Mama is so sensitive about things when normally if it would have been said to him or her, they just laugh it off. Pft.. whatever. And after all that, she still never apologized. Jack ended up only eating maybe 4 bites and then had some of Justins massive turky sammy. I had seconds of the shepards pie. I absolutly love that. Maybe I shouldn't be so sensitive about that. Maybe I should just let it roll off me like raindrops on your shoulder... but thats just not me. Sure it would be alot easier..than to have to mull things over and over again and analyze every little detail about things that were said and done. Blah..I am tired of this post now..I am off to read.
