Make the week end!
It's not that this week was bad, it's just that next week holds so much promise.
It's SPRING BREAK!
So let's end the week! Head on over and see Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin' Time. Say "hey" and pick up a button and play along. You know you want to!
Alrighty then -
* Wednesday was Trammell's birthday!
To celebrate, I sent a birthday package to Cambodia.....complete with a cake mix, frosting, candles, party hats, streamers, balloons etc.
How much do you want to bet that he shoved the whole thing under his bed and hid it?
Remember last year when this picture -
showed up on Facebook? Yeah, last year he hid his birthday box and then brought it out about 6 weeks later to celebrate another missionary's birthday. I'm guessing the day passed with no fanfare. He hates the attention.
* So after that little arctic blast of 7" of snow at our last lacrosse game on Tuesday,
it's been all bright and sunny and 60 degrees.
We have lacrosse this afternoon.
Guess what time the snow is supposed to roll in?
Yep - you've figured it out!
Rain/snow around 4ish, game at 5.
* Next week is Spring Break.
The lacrosse team is going to Disney World
Both boys are going and they leave Sunday at the crack of dawn.
Wow! NO KIDS!
I thought about going somewhere myself.
I mean. I have NO KIDS!
But then I thought,
"Wait! The house is EMPTY! You DON'T leave the house when the house is empty!"
Oh no! You lounge around and relish in the fact that NO ONE is going to leave empty cups, shoes, sports equipment, or backpacks laying around.
I think I'm going to clean the house on Monday and then just walk around admiring it the rest of the week.
* Why is coffee table in my office?
Why is the coffee table NOT in the family room?
Oh, I'll tell you. See the armoire/entertainment center? Isn't that the perfect backboard for this -
Who cares that there is a sport court outside. Who cares about the 2200 square foot basement when you can play basketball in the family room? Doesn't it make perfect sense? THIS IS the best use of my family room!
* And now...........
another brilliant conversation with Garrett -
G- “Are we going to have good food or bad food for Easter Dinner?”
Me – “What is good food?”
G – “Steak.”
Me – “Steak isn’t Easter food. You don't have Easter Steak. You have Easter Ham.”
G – “Say no more. THAT answered my question. I just don't get it. Why can't we have Kung Pao Chicken or Mongolian Beef?”
Have a great weekend!
