* This week is full of GOOD NEWS & BAD NEWS!
The good news is that it is now Friday!
The good news is that Mrs. 4444 is hosting

So we can all get on over to Half Past Kissin' Time and play along!

* BEST NEWS - Wasn't that mine rescue incredible?  It was awesome to watch and I loved hearing each of the miner's stories.

* GOOD NEWS - Trammell (the one who just got back from his 2 year mission in Cambodia and is in Utah attending BYU) got a J.O.B!
He will be teaching English to foreign missionaries who are coming to the U.S. or Canada to serve missions.
I don't know how that works.  But evidently, he does.

* BAD NEWS - Trammell has lost 20 pounds in one month.

* GOOD NEWS - If he shares his weight loss secret with the world, he will be rich.

* BAD NEWS - I believe his weight loss secret involves a tropical disease <- that's nicer than saying parasite or worms.  So you may not want his weight loss secret.

* GOOD NEWS - After suffering from "morning sickness" as he calls it and throwing up every other day for seemingly no reason, his doctor referred him to a G I guy.

* BAD NEWS - The G I can't see him until November 29th.

* GOOD NEWS - He INSISTED they see him now and muscled his way into an appointment today!

* BAD NEWS - Tiny Baby is 15 and 362/365ths.  

* GOOD NEWS - He wants NO part of a party.  He will take presents and a driver's license though!

* GOOD NEWS - He is over the plague.  Just in time to spend the evening flagboying with the cheerleaders at the football game - after the ater school cookie making and team dinner of course.

* BAD NEWS - No going out for ice cream after the game with all the cheerleaders because the PSAT's are tomorrow morning at 7 am.

* GOOD NEWS - But after the PSAT's is a lacrosse game, building a haunted house with friends and a barn dance.  Parker has such a BORING life!

* GOOD NEWS - Garrett has straight A's in college.

* BAD NEWS - Except in one class.  The first test was yesterday and it didn't go so well.  He got a 76%

* GOOD NEWS - The class "brain" got a 60% and the high score was an 80%.  Everyone is hoping for a curve.

* BAD NEWS - Parker gave me the plague.  I'm coughing up a lung.

* GOOD NEWS - It's Friday and I don't care that I have the plague!!!  WooHOO!

Have a great weekend!

Sounds like things are going great-well, except for that "tropical disease" and the plague. Hope everyone is feeling better soon!

Donna said...

This is cute! I hope they can figure out what's going on with your son soon. Yikes!
The Chilean miner story was such a good one--so nice to see something good in the news!

Andrea said...

I love your good news/bad news edition. FF is like RTT and you know I love those days!

I hope they figure out what's up with the weight loss. Let us know!

Tears of joy for the Chilean miners and their families.

Hope you feel better soon.

I once had amoebic dysentery and lost 20lbs. I wouldn't recommend it.

My brother-in-law had a massive weight loss on his mission and after it. He was in Asia, and was so sick when he came home. Yes, it was something tropical. It took a while to fine out. Tell your son to hang in there!

That's a lot of news! At least Tiny Baby has his priorities straight.

The mine rescue was absolutely amazing. For once I was able to watch the news and not come away even more anxious about one day turning my kid out into the world.

It's like a virtual rollercoaster. ;) Here's hoping every one feels better soon. -J

I like to see how involved you are in the life of your children... It's a sign of a great Mom! I hope that cough goes away real soon!


Raven said...

I didn't get to see the big rescue-no tv-but it sounds amazing!

Hope Trammel feels better soon!

Hope you feel better soon too!!

Have a great weekend.

There is NEVER any bad news when it comes to ice cream. Unless of course, it melts before I get to it.

I love how you wrote the bad/good news for all your kids! Great way to keep everyone updated!

Love the good news/bad news approach. Hope everyone is plague-free soon.
