Lately ...

It's been snowing a lot lately.
Gus used to snow blow our driveway, but he doesn't have time to do it now. So we have to call a plow guy. Anyway, a lot of snow it means a lot of money to pay the plow guy. He is getting rich this season ... ;)

Super Bowl ...
Who can forget how the New England Patriots lost to the New York Giants? Gus was very sad for two days after the game. I wish that his favorite team had won the game, and gone undefeated. But, I was surprised when he said that Gisele Bundchen, Tom Brady's supermodel girl friend is EVIL! Gisele must have been distracting Tom. Wow ... usually I am the one who say this bitchy stuff. Well, I guess men can be bitchy sometimes when it comes to football. :)

(Correction from Gus: Of all the women in the Victoria's Secret catalog he picks Gisele? Leonardo DiCaprio's castaway? C'mon Tom!)

My kids love watching TV.
I don't blame them. In fact, I sent the kids to watch TV when I wanted to do something (bad ... very bad mother!). But since they were watching too much TV, they became monsters. They yelled at me, never listened, didn't want to play, etc. So Gus and I decided to unplug TV during the week. On the weekend they can watch TV only after they play out side, read and do their chores.

It works! Thia is back to being a sweet little girl, she plays a lot and is happier. Benny plays a lot and pays attention more.

Valentine's day is coming.
Gus has been asking me what I want for it. I told him what I want. I think that was the best way to solve the problem. Gus is happy finding out what to get for me and I am happy as well to get what I want. I know this is breaking "the rules". Girls usually want guys to know what they want. It's called "being sensitive." But in my relationship experiences with my husband, I just give up with this "sensitive" thing. Trust me, it's not worth it to fight about it with them. And actually, I do the same thing with my birthday or his birthday. You can make a list of things you want and tell your husband where you put the list. And ask your husband where he puts his list. If one of us didn't get exactly the present what we want, we just return or exchange it. We never feel bad or up sad about it. It's that simple, period! ;)
