Ben and I run out the door of the pizza place, go home, and we play our games.  Lots of fun.  Finally, Barb and the kids return home from church.  Barb's grateful I took Ben to Blockbuster as that was on her to-do list.  She goes to be early.

This morning, I tell her about this BLOG thingy.  Well, my near 17-year old daughter listens in while she sews a quilt for her cousin, Lauren.  "You're not talking about me on the web, are you Dad?"

Of course not Brittany.  I would never, ever talk about you on the web without your prior permission.  Yeah.  Right.  Mwa haa haa.  Mwa haa haa haa.  Brittany is my oldest child.  She's almost 17 years old.  She's really an incredible kid.  You couldn't ask for a better teenager.  I mean it.

I do call Brittany the "Overlord In Training" or OIT on occassion.  She can't help what her mother models, right?  I mean, if my wife is The Evil Overlord, some of it is gonna rub off, right?

In case you didn't gather, my wife is The Evil Overlord.  I also just call her Evil or Overlord on occassion.

My other kids are Ben, who you've read about.  Bobby who is older than Ben and younger than Brittany, and Bekah who is our youngest.  Bobby and Bekah attend public schools in 9th grade and kindergarten, respectively.  Ben and Brittany are home schooled by Evil herself in 5th grade and 11th grade, respectively.

Brittany is gonna be 17 soon.  I need to think about doing something for her birthday.  Hmm... at least a card.  My biggest trick yet is sending unsigned cards to my sisters by accident.  Hey, at least I thought of the card.  I bought the card, addressed the envelope, put a stamp on the envelope and sent the cards.  I forgot to even sign them.

Anyway, Brittany was sewing this morning.  I asked, "Is this Home Ec?"  Evil informed me this was an "Interior Design" class going on.  Oh.  Okay.  Interior Design.  That's good.
