I NEED it to be Friday,
but I also need it to be the 1st of December.
With each new Friday, we inch perilously close to Christmas!
Good thing Mrs. 4444 helps us DEFRAG!
Get on over to Half Past Kissin' Time and thank her!
* Conversation with my SIL:Her: "What are you making for dinner tonight?"
Me: "Mmmm....I can't tell you. You'll be jealous if I tell you."
She knows me too well!
And just FYI - I WAS making something legit!
I don't usually have cookies for breakfast!
I just have cookies and cupcakes and pie for breakfast! Duh!
I was making chicken tenders wrapped in sage and then wrapped in bacon.
* Text conversation with my two college boys -
Me: "It's cold and gray and snowy. I miss you! Come home!"
One boy called and said, "Your message made me cry."
The other boy tested back: "Yeah it's cold and snowy here too."
Such love! Such tenderness!
* Overheard: "I'm pretty sure that if I had brown riding boots, my entire life would be different."
* Good thing Tiny Baby missed school last Friday and went to the State Cheerleading Competition!
Both the Cheers and the Poms took FIRST in state! I really doubt they could have done it without those boys in the stands!
I asked Parker how he lasted 12 hours? He said it was the most "drama filled" day of his high school career. He witnessed lots of tears and mini cat fights. Ahhhh........high school!
* Remember yesterday?
Yeah me neither.
Well to refresh your memory, my blog entry was on the wisdom of giving someone "Monkey Butt" Powder for Christmas.
I was contacted by a woman who does PR for them (how could she type that with a straight face?) and she asked if I would like to do a product review.
Wouldn't that mean that I would 1)Have to admit that I HAVE Monkey Butt and 2) Use the product?
* Next week is Parker's Eagle Court of Honor.
Yeah - we didn't have enough parties to go to this season, much less plan, so we threw a Boy Scout party in the mix.
What could be more exciting that a Boy Scout Party?
It's kind of anticlimatic, because his official recognition came in the mail.
He couldn't care less about the certificate, the medal, the scarf, the letter from a congressman..........
what he was living for is this...
The "credit card."
Yeah.........we know it's not a credit card, but it's a cool, colorful, plastic card for your wallet that LOOKS like a credit card and with tongue-in-cheek, all of my boys call it THE credit card.
Who needs a Court of Honor to honor him anymore?
Oh and also........Parker's Eagle Project is being nominated as one of the Outstanding Eagle Projects of the Year. Congrats Parker!
* You can come inside now.
Quit waiting by your mailbox.
Because we're wrapped up in so many holdiay extravanganzas - like the Eagle Court and starting a new business, we're NOT sending Christmas Cards.
So, I can cross ONE thing off my list of Elf Chores..........
but only because I added writing a press release, ordering the business Christmas gifts and having the work party at my house to the list.
Well, I haven't had my breakfast cookies yet.........so I'm outta here!
Have a great weekend!
