What to do on a late night when all is quiet...

It's a quiet Wednesday night here....the boys have crapped out...Issei, in his bed (where he should be) and Koji is curled up on the sofa, remote control in his hand (like the "little man" he is) and snoring like a 'big dog'! The K-man is in his "man cave" with his headphones on and playing guitar with George (Harrison) or Phil (Collins) or Neil (Young), I'm sure. And here I am....in my regular place of an evening, in front of the computer!! (But about to call it a night......)

Tonight, Issei made a comment about wanting to "escape from homework"....he's had a bit of trouble with that particular aspect of school and I, too, would like to escape from the push and pull that has been going on in his adventure in, what I like to call, "Homework Hell".

Escape is a great word.
Escape....(v)....to get free of : break away from
Here are a few of the ways we, here in the Kuroiwa House, like to "escape":

Issei and Koji....

Nintendo DS, Game Boy, Bionicles, Cars and "King of the Beetles" trading cards and headphones for listening to music.

The K-man......

His extensive collection of CDs (yes, those are ABC dividers like those you see in a store!!) and concert DVDs and of course....to make his own music.....these.....

And these would be some of mine...Hula , my MP3 and a good Nora Roberts book

Right now, even as I type, I am downloading my new CD of Lifehouse onto my MP3 player....as I feel my own need to escape coming upon me.

And since we are on this idea.....here's another form of the word I like: escapism...(n) habitual diversion of the mind to purely imaginative activity or entertainment as an escape from reality or routine

If I'm going to do that seriously I need to include this man....as he makes escapism oh so much more fun!!

Have you ever heard Two Gallants from SF? I just have a feeling you would like them.

Tell you son homework sucks! Doing it, grading it, not many things are as crappy...

There is study out about how its a big waste of time. I believe it at the elementary level. Kids just want to get it done and teachers are just obliged. Peace
