love me some skymall

it's cold and snowy and icy lately. and just as i have every winter for several years, i think of one thing i really need to buy: ice shoes. why i haven't purchased them yet, i have no idea. when i worked at the ice arena we would walk on the ice and put on similar cleats that would prevent us from slipping and i always wanted my own pair. finally, i came across this set in the SkyMall catalog on a flight and figured i would order them for winter. well, somehow i never did and every winter i think about it and every winter i forget and never get them (i did however, by these awesome lawn shoes for my dad for father's day one year from SkyMall. he opened them, we all watched him put them on but after he almost stabbed himself in the calf trying to pull the incredibly sharp spikes out of the ground they were packed up and he reverted back to wearing his golf shoes to aerate the grass). and if you think SkyMall is only good for bizarre variations on shoes you are sorely mistaken, oh no, they have so much more! such as this travel pillow, a wine chiller, or a sumo wrestler table. what's not to love???

kieran came home the other day and told me that his class had had a dentist visit their class to do exams. immediately my mind flashed to our last two dentist visits, where only months ago he screamed so violently that we had no choice but to postpone most of the visit. and this was just during the x-rays. so, it wasn't a good sign when i asked about it and he asked me "what does upset mean?" uh huh. i looked at the sheet later that said they were unable to complete the check up, in one box it was abbreviated but perfectly clear :"uncoop." yep. not surprised.

otherwise kieran's doing well in school, i forgot to bring snack to his class the other day. my veteran mom friend assure me that it probably won't be the last time, and knowing me and my memory issues i'm inclined to believe it, but oh well. kieran's excited for christmas and asks for something new every other day. we cannot venture into a store such as target for fear that we may tread too near the toy isle and inevitably there will be disagreements, tears, frustration. and that's just aaron and me. it's horrible. i'd like to move to a remote african village and weave tapestries for one another, is that too much to ask?

if he's not lucky he's getting this from SkyMall.

Ok - the travel pillow looked really great until Mike brought up that I would probably drool and it would run all the way down to my pants and .........

That sumo table....hmmmm, looking at it makes me wonder what it looks like from behind.............
