I used to love DYK threads.  Anyone interested in getting one started?

DYK it took about two hours to find A shirt that was in DH's size...and it pulled in the arm holes?  >.<  I was NOT happy.  I have yet to go return it.  I did fix the sleeve of the one shirt that fits him perfectly in the body, and it turns out the sleeves are not too short, as he claimed, but rather shorter than his other shirt sleeves, which are half an inch too long.

DYK I am so totally going to take the Mensa test?  I just need to wait for the proctor to get back to me with a date and time.  I'm pretty hyped!

DYK we spent a lot of time at the beach this weekend?  It was lots of fun, except for the part where I had to get sand out of little butt cracks.  Baby powder does the trick, but I forgot to bring a bottle of it with us.

DYK I got an email from our new homestay student today?  She seems really sweet and eager to come and fit in.  I'm excited to meet her.

DYK we got to the beach on the weekend but the boys were playing in wetter sand, so no complaints about sand in the cracks :smileywink:

DYK we also spent a bunch of time in the water, just wading around

DYK we still haven't gone for school supplies yet

DYK there's plenty of time, but we've had the list for a couple weekends already and so it feels like we're late on the job

DYK it's our first year buying supplies - exciting!

DYK I made black currant jelly today?  It's super tasty.  Eight jars, one of which I didn't can because it has all the foam in it from the top, so seven jars to put on my shelf downstairs.  I'm very pleased with myself.

DYK that almost all of our camping stuff is together, at least on my end?  DH still has to pack up the tent and such into the trailer, but I have together all the cooking and eating stuff.  Just need to put the food in when we're ready to go.

DYK Monkey is going to be FIVE on Friday?  I can't believe how quickly five years can go by.  It doesn't seem like he should be old enough to start school in September.

DYK August is one of those months with a lot of family birthdays for us.  My sister and nephew had a birthday yesterday, my brother's birthday is in two weeks, one of my nieces will be turning 13 at the end of the month, and...I think that's everyone (I might be forgetting one).

DYK I need to get a gift for my nephew sometime today.  We're going to my sister's house for cake and ice cream.  He's 5 now, and he's really into the Avengers.  I hope I can find something he'll like!

DYK it is actually harder with just the 2 littler kids. My older ones help out so much.

DYK They are back now and my parents have gone home so things are back to normal

DYK JT turned 3 this week and has had zero accidents since Sunday. My potty training goal was 3 so he just made it and I'm so glad it isn't going to drag out with lots of accidents. We also tossed his binkies and he's doing so good.

DYK he had his checkup today and is 20% height 34% weight and no shots

DYK I have been staying up way too late watching the olympics, I need to go to bed at a normal time tonight.

DYK DH has won a ton of stuff from work in the last 2 weeks. He got me a hand blender, professional grade waffle baker, stand mixer, BBQ tool set, hand mixer, few other random kitchen tools and cookbooks... all Kitchenaid stuff!

DYK I'm hoping to get on more.

Sorry to hear about the diabetes diagnosis.  :smileysad:  At least now that it's been diagnosed it can be treated!

DYK I totally noticed that you've been MIA?  I'm glad you're back!  How was your move?

DYK we went camping this weekend?  We went to a provincial park not too far away and camped for three nights.  It was great!  The boys had lots of fun throwing rocks in the river and digging in the dirt, and we brought home a few rocks for our pond, as well. (Naughty us.)  Now we're going through the process of unpacking and repacking all the camping gear, and prepping for our second round of vacationing...not that camping was really a vacation!

DYK that DH has finally decided how much room I can have for a veggie garden along the back fence?  He wants to be able to put the trailer back there, which is fine, but it's taken three summers for him to figure out how much room is left over. I have two feet of depth along the fence for about thirty feet.  Yay!

DYK DH told my SIL she can store a bunch of her stuff in our family room?  I am SO NOT HAPPY.  So much for the boys being able to play where it's nice and cool all summer!  He did say that he was sorry, and he shouldn't have done it, and he's not sure why he did other than feeling guilted into it, and he'll make them move it out once they sell their house rather than letting it stay until they move in OCTOBER.  So at least we'll be able to use that space this fall.

DYK we are now officially getting both a nanny and another homestay student?  I'm so excited for both!  It will be nice (I hope) to have other females in the house. Our nanny is 19 and our student is 17.  I hope they get along.

DYK nice haul on the kitchen gadgets!

DYK I already have the hand blender and mixer, but could use a better waffle maker and the stand mixer :smileywink:

DYK an ice cream maker would also be great these days - we have two who can eat dairy and two that can't
