We'll leave the light on for you.

After leaving the house at 8:30 am and arriving home at 7:30 pm, I came in through the garage door and saw this image.

Except what I saw was Ciera in the chair on the end in her pajamas, Rakes on the floor between the 2nd and 3rd barstool eating a bowl of ice cream and Ang in a fetching blue jogging suit at the sink on the left, elbow deep in soap suds scrubbing a crock pot.

And Trot eating a fudgecicle in the last stool by the refrigerator.

In a sweatshirt. And Bob the Builder underoos. And that was it.

How come I never saw Ward Cleaver come home to the same thing? June was always in a dress and pearls with the feather duster out and Wally and the Beav looked like they were ready to go to Communion.

Did I mention Trot had such a wicked case of bed head he looked like the demon seed of Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious?

Dear God, please let Truck Day get here.

I really need to buy myself that new tv soon. I've wrangled a friend who agreed to mount it on the wall once I get it :)

How I'm dealing with absolutely no tv is actually not bad...well since ive learned the wicked ways of watching movies on the side ;)

Soak it up Ted...those days of coming home to kids will be gone before you know it

word verification: candos

Ted D said...

I have no idea what you are talking about in regard to the movies thing; I am an honest, tax paying citizen and you should be ashamed of yourself. ;)

Candos: candaon.

Pretty close.

Shots like that are why you cut off his baby locks.

My word: lusiness.

'splain it to me, Ted.:)

Ted D said...

I got no clue, John.

In honor of Sean, maybe Looser?

He looks like Jon Cryer in some '80's flick.

Sarah said...

hahaha! Even better: my word? "worsiess". As in, what could be "worsiess" [sic] than this? hahaha fabulous

* edit: I actually had to rewrite this because I forgot to type in the word verification. I think that means I need sleep STAT.

Ted D said...

College life may be getting to you, Sarah. ;)

Rich in the garage said...


Your kid and I rock the same do!


Marc said...

Hey Ward,
I think that Trot wants a Mohawk like the 2008 Rays sported at the end of the season....he hasn't been asking for a Rays tee shirt, has he? You will really know he is switching sides if he ask for glasses...with heavy black frames....... and some blue hear dye....parish the taught!!!

Ted D said...

Rich, the fact you and my boys have so much in common is starting to freak me out a little. The fact I'm old enough to be your Dad is as well.

Marc, NEVER. Although he would look pretty good rocking a Mohawk.

~**Dawn**~ said...

Now that I am done laughing at Marc's comment, rather than compare him to a miniature Johnny Gomes, *I* was going to say you created the next coming of Kramer! ;-)

Ted D said...

Cosmo? I can see that Dawn.

Rich in the garage said...

Or he has the second coming of me.

Rakes in a garage?
Trot in a garage?

Ted D said...

Probably, Rich. Can you imagine the carnage that would ensue?

Rich in the garage said...

Cant be much worse than the guy I just charger 1400 bucks for 35 days for.

Hes pissed and calling the cops.

Should be a hoot.

Ted D said...

Duck and cover, Rich. Duck and cover.

HorshamScouse said...

//1400 bucks for 35 days//
$1.60 an hour ain't bad for your location.

Tex said...

Ted D said...

Tyupeing has always been your strong suit, Tex. :)
