If Ryan Seacrest would only work one job like the rest of us, maybe our unemployment rate wouldn't be so high.
So back to the sting. Ryan has some girl that works at the station call the suspected cheater to offer him a free dozen roses to be sent to whom ever he chooses, no strings attached. She says she is trying to promote her flower business and that he was the lucky winner! Yippee! She doesn't need a credit card or his address, just the name of the person he wants to send them to, and a note. Sucker (Joe)......
This is all going on while Ryan and the suspicious wife/girlfriend (we'll call her Jill) is on the line listening in. On this particular call (and I've heard many) the wife had signed up because her landlord had called her to tell her she had two weeks to find a new place to live due to the unpaid rent. She hadn't suspected a thing prior to the landlord calling her, but now she knew the money was going elsewhere.
Florist: I just need a name and a note.
Joe: Ok, um, send them Sara.
Florist: Sara, ok, and what do you want me to say in the note?
Joe: Um... Say, I love you and only you and I can't wait to go on our cruise.
Jill: *(@#)(*&%#_$) WE HAVE THREE KIDS!!! (*@_)(#* SO THAT IS WHERE THE RENT MONEY HAS GONE, TO A CRUISE? UN$+_)* BELIEVEABLE. DON'T YOU %+@_)# COME HOME YOU%&!+)). WHO IS JILL? WHO IS SHE? SHE IS THE ONE YOU CARPOOL WITH ISN'T SHE? (@&$&!*%*
Ryan: Joe, as you can see, I have Jill on the line, you're on air with Ryan Seacrest... Who is Jill?
Joe: Who is this?
Joe: Ryan - can you see what I am dealing with, Jill has problems, she is a total nutjob.
Jill: How could you do this to us, we have 3 kids, what you were just going to take our rent money and leave us, without a home, with nothing, and go off on a cruise with this girl? How could you do this Joe? HOW COULD YOU DO THIS???
Joe: Jill, I wasn't going to leave you without a home, I am paying the rent tomorrow, I am figuring it out. I don't want to talk about this right now, we will talk later.
Ryan: Bro, how could you do this to your wife? And you're kids?
Joe: Dude, she's crazy. I can't take her anymore...
Jill: )@(#&%_!+__#$__)!(_#)(_#))$*&*%*$*(%($)$)$_! (you get the idea)
My jaw was on the floor. I couldn't believe that he actually fell for it. I was sick to my stomach for that woman, but I have to admit, I was entertained at the same time. What intrigues me the most is that he pulls it off time and time again and people don't recognize the set-up from the beginning. I searched for archived audio files but I couldn't find any...anybody out there suspect their spouse of cheating because Ryan can help!
Ethan has officially started little league baseball. This is his first organized team, probably the first of many. My life has forever changed. From now on it will be filled with practices, games, and laundry, but I can't wait to see which sport Ethan enjoys the most. Of course Eric would have him play football and I, basketball, but for a diabetic I think baseball is a good choice.
The DODGERS first meeting:
(there are 3 little league teams - all from CA: Padres, Angels and Dodgers)
Three Amigos: Mason, Jacob & Ethan

Sunday was Italian Post Roast.
Monday was Meatloaf with Mashed Potatoes & Spinach with Bacon.
Today was Chicken Curry with Peas & Cashews.
I am a big fan of having a menu in place. I hate it when 6:00 rolls around and I am starring into the fridge, hoping something will jump out at me. What I like even more though is that Ethan has liked everything that I've made. If only I could get Cohen to eat something other than Spaghetti O's or Mac & Cheese.

The day was left up to Ethan - he chose to go to the beach with my Mom, eat lunch at Wienerschnitzel, and then go bowling. He got decked out in his JDRF t-shirt and the hat he got from his pump company. He was pretty excited. I can't believe it's been four years.
Cohen has become the worst-sleeper-ever. He is on this weird schedule of going to bed at 8:30, waking up at midnight only to come and get in bed with us. If I am still awake at that point I always bring him back to his own bed, but if we're asleep and too bugged to get out of bed to redirect him, he just ends up falling back to sleep in our bed. Now, we have a California King bed so if he were a normal child I wouldn't even notice him next to me, but since he is the crazy-erratic-worst-sleeper-ever that he is, he always ends up like this in our bed... sideways, feet in my back with his head resting on Eric. This has been happening for at least three months now. I've even tried those door knobs that you put on the handle so that they can't turn it...THEY DON'T WORK. He figured it out in like two seconds and on the off chance that he doesn't quite grip it just right, he manhandles it until the thing snaps in half and falls off. I need any and all advice. I could vacuum under Ethan's bed while he is sleeping and he wouldn't wake up. HELP!
