The past two weeks have been just a tad stressful for Mr. B-rad...a job loss, a car accident, a 41st birthday, some semi-major health issues, and the general wear and tear which are the natural by-products of life in our hyper household.
But, can I just say it? The guy is smooth and handling it all with his trademark cool. This week, he flew across the country, visiting prospective "beauty parlors" and is close to accepting an offer. More details to come. He flew home just in time to single-parent the children while I fought a 24 hour stomach nasty. And, to top it all off, the guy LOST SIX POUNDS. In one week. Without trying. (Guess who found them? And, no, even the stomach nasty didn't help.)
Brad's favorite breakfast is Kashi Go-Lean. His favorite candy is a Peppermint Patty. And his favorite team is the Eagles, although he is a bit disgusted with them tonight...
Luke is happiest these days with a pencil and paper in his hands. He is a writer. Watch for his blog. The kid has talent. Luke's favorite thing to watch is "Tom and Jerry"--a little violent, but it's set to Tsaichovsky, so how bad can it be? Luke's favorite breakfast is waffles and his favorite word is actually.
Jake enjoyed his tenth birthday--especially the car accident part. He has conveniently forgotten that he wanted a guinea pig for a present and a big party at Bounce U. Do you think I should remind him? Jake's favorite breakfast is cream cheese with a bit of bagel on the side. His most-played mp3 song is "Can't Touch This" by M.C. Hammer.
