Dance Festival was a success!
6th Grade pulled a new musical number with their rendition of Michael Jackson's THRILLER!
Ethan LOVED his role as Zombie
Alex and Alinda as Michael J and his girlfriend:
Why does Little Caesars Pizza have to be so NASTY when it is vomited up at 3am?!
Why is my memory so short when it comes to remembering if I've already added a dryer sheet to the laundry? I go through 2 dryer sheets per load every time!
Why can't Target have dresses WITH sleeves in its little girls section?
How do Ethan's socks end up EVERYWHERE around the house? One is on the counter (ick!) and one is behind the TV . . .
Just how crazy would I have to be to sign up to run a marathon?
Would it be wrong of me to go to next year's preschool graduation just so I can have the cookies?
Who wants to eat Kneader's French Toast with me next week before the kids get out of school?
Does a Summer Craft Camp sound like a good idea for Josh to make some money this summer?
Will everyone think I'm less white-trash if I get cool cement curbing for the yard tomorrow?
Why do situations get worse whenever I start monkeying with them? Is there a law that says I can't make a bad situation better?Oh, the list goes on!
This actually took about 3 minutes to get the card, admire the sucker, give hugs. But I'm only crediting 30 seconds since Emma took back the sucker and ate it. She also spent the next 5 hours telling me I didn't love her and that she hated me.2 Hours of Mother's Day as Melanie and I went to dinner at Five Guys and then re-pierced my ears at the mall.
Okay, Emma came along too. But I wasn't necessarily talking to her. She was talking to me, but she clearly didn't get that I was giving her the silent treatment. She seemed to be over the earlier 'sucker ordeal' -- I was not.1 Hour of Mother's Day as I received a card and gift from a neighbor girl.
Okay, I'm still getting Mother's Day goodness from this as I reflect on the thoughtfulness of others. To recognize me as a Second Mother is really an honor that I can grasp fully and appreciate more than you can know! Why can't arranged marriages be the norm anymore?2 Hours of Mother's Day on Saturday as Jeff helped the kids mow the lawn and weed!!
The joy of not doing the lawn and weeding myself is D-I-V-I-N-E. Plus, we look a lot less like the scourge of the 9th Ward now that we recycled our microwave, dishwasher and other assorted junk that we've had on display in our yard, for awhile now.1 Hour of Mother's Day as we visited my mom and Jeff's mom.
This whole visiting thing took a lot longer than an hour. It was wonderful to catch up with my AWESOME mom!! She is amazing and everyday I think I become more like her (even the growing of whiskers on my neck!). And visiting with Carol was lovely too! My Salizza lunch was FABULOUS, but I had deduct Mother's Day time because I was in the car with Josh, Ethan and Emma. At some point, that situation just deteriorates as you drive around Salt Lake for hours. . .45 Minutes of Mother's Day as I got ready for church yesterday.
Rest assured that the sucker-giving was just as horrible as it was on Friday. Please, please stop giving Emma suckers!!
