Good morning. Won't be much to see here - cloudy and by this afternoon lots of rain.

Had the boys help me make pin hole viewers anyway just as a project to do.

Stay safe, guys.
Heard that Tennessee was supposed to have a great view of it. And Nashville was the largest city in the country to be able to see close to the full eclipse. In NE Wisconsin we were supposed to see about 80%. Had the kids at the local minor league baseball game during the peak of the eclipse. Definitely noticeable when the eclipse was going on. A weird kind of dim sunlight. Almost like you were wearing sunglasses, but weren't.

The whole thing reminded me of the Will Ferrell skit from SNL when he played Harry Caray. "One time I took a pair of binoculars and stared at the sun for over an hour." "It's not good to stair directly at the sun Harry." "But it's hard not too!"

We got to see the start of it but it clouded over and started raining through the peak time. Meh, it was all over the tv and facebook.

Good morning. A bit of excitement, checked my email when I woke, found an overdraft notice. Um NO.
Someone in NJ went on a spree at Home Depot with our card. Half hour on the phone got it back, but man! Jerks!

Good morning,

Vacation is over (we flew in from Florida literally last night) and today is Joey's first day of middle school. There's a bit of ambiguity regarding the bus (I had to call this morning because they never sent notification of his new bus assignment.) I chit chatted with some parents who I don't know all that well and one mentioned after school care which I am going to take advantage of.

I have to admit one thing though: I am going to be lazy today, though I do have therapy and need to run to the grocery store for T.P. I am in the initial stages of winding down 13 years of being a full time SAHD. I will be filling out job applications this week.

Good morning.
Little princess asked me to start schooling on Tuesday, so I did.
(she got bored with summer. Always raining.
I did step out on the deck to see the eclipse (with my ISO approved Solar glasses). You know, my eyes hurt, still. I can see fine. Sure it will pass.
Welcome back to Pa Kwak!

Thanks, irie. Sorry guys, I'm still going shirtless. The goal is to maintain the tan as long as I can, get less jiggly by walking every day and laugh at others' discomfort. Flab pride!
