On Friday, I left the Yoys with their dad and grandma, and took a trip to visit my bestie for the weekend.
As I (im)patiently waited at Atlanta airport for my delayed flight to depart, I dove into a fresh Sudoku puzzle book. I had no kids to distract me. I had nothing but time, according to the AirTran departure screen.
I love working on Sudoku puzzles. As a math nerd, this is my crack rock. I love the challenge. The thinking. The brain sweats. I need it to stay sharp.
Halfway through my second puzzle, I found myself stuck. Around this time, I felt a presence hovering over my left shoulder. It was a curious young boy I guessed to be around nine.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
I then tried to explain how to complete a Sudoku puzzle to a child. I can barely pronounce it, but now I'm going to explain it? After my wordy and lengthy synopsis I looked over my shoulder at the young boy.
Crickets. Blank stare. Flat line. I shrugged my shoulders and went back to my puzzle.
The boy continued to watch me struggle.
AREN'T THE ANSWERS IN THE BACK? JUST LOOK IT UP!
I politely explained that while the answers were in the back, I was going to try and problem solve.
And that's when it hit me.
This is our country's next generation. And they are a lazy bunch of cheaters. His best solution to the Sudoku problem was to cheat his way through it. Sigh.
Oh, and did I mention he was wearing a UGA hat? No disrespect to Georgia's fine institution, I'm just saying that UGA should watch out, because in about nine more years they are going to have a lazy cheater headed their way.
So many numbers...

Mr. Yoy asked if I could bring the boys by for dinner and take a look at his new office with all of his pictures professionally hung. I, of course, obliged as I am always looking for something to kill time before bedtime. WOULD YOU LIKE TO DRIVE INTO THE HEART OF BUCKHEAD IN THE MIDDLE OF RUSH HOUR? or WOULD YOU LIKE TO STAY AT HOME FROM THE HOURS OF 4-7PM WHILE YOUR KIDS SLOWLY DRIVE YOU INSANE? This mom would take traffic any day of the week. So we headed off to Terminus. We made pretty good time, by the way, until we hit Piedmont. What a cluster! We hit up Mr. Yoy's office first. It looked fantastic! Big and Little E seated themselves next to the window and ogled the women at the three hotel pools within view. No wonder Mr. Yoy asked for binoculars for Father's Day. (That was a joke) We walked over to Ru San's for some sushi dinner. I give them props for blasting their music. It makes me much more relaxed as there is something louder than my chi
Hi folks! A quick note from Mrs. Yoy as I know it's been awhile. For those that know me personally, you know that I've been very vocal in unsuccessfully convincing the Cobb County School board to change their COVID policies, which to this day, remain a steaming pile of sh*t. We follow zero health guidelines and figuring out the quarantine policy is akin to solving that math problem from Good Will Hunting. I will be publishing the letters I've sent to the board and Superintendent over the last 18 days of school. I've heard back from my representative, who is lovely, and my pediatric dentist who also serves on the board, but it's been crickets from the voting block of four and the Superintendent, Chris Ragsdale. Apparently, he's too busy pumping iron and self-tanning. Anyway, enjoy. HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! (E-mail sent on August 2, 2021) Good morning from East Cobb!

Good morning from East Cobb! I am following up on an email I sent yesterday morning, to which I received zero responses. As a long time resident, I am writing you this morning to plead with you to reconsider the mask policy for Cobb County schools this year. I’ve been speaking with many parents and we are stressed and saddened by the lack of consideration and communication from the board regarding the recent surge of Covid. In case you wanted to know, I can also see the future. And in two weeks when we are all at home, virtual again, with sick kids, teachers, bus drivers and others in quarantine, I will be thinking of you and your total disregard for the health of our children and our families. Look, we all make judgment mistakes. We all have a crazy family member spreading conspiracy theories. But we don’t let these people and/or the internet comments section guide our work decisions. Gosh, I can’t imagine if I let my dad’s view of our income tax system influence how I prepared tax r
