Thankful that Mira's fall was no worse and that she is going to be ok. :smileyhappy:

Thankful for scrappy friends and our crop in 2 weeks!

Thankful to have everything we need.

Thankful for Smiley. :smileyhappy:

Well up before the crack of dawn, cuz its a school day and well the sun doesn't even begin to come up til we are almost there! :smileyhappy:

No test today thankfully, but plenty to do.   Straight home after school, Diva has a test and her friend is going to watch Smiley but if she gets grumpy she can't handle her, so Mema is on call. 

GS Leader meeting at 630, which I should be able to bail out of by 7:30.  Then dropping the van off for its oil change and trip check to prepare for the drive to the crop. :smileyhappy:

then home to do homework and make sure C is packed and ready to go for tomorrow night.

Then sleep.... which has been avoiding me alot lately, and I have been having to take sleeping pills to get it started....

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Sure Julie, say that after I just had an extra cuppa to start my day since I am sooooo tired. 

I am thankful for breathing.  I would be more thankful for it if I could actually do it. 

I am thankful that today is not too crazy out of control.

I too am thankful Mira's fall was not any worse. 

Gonna put in 8 hours at work today, then go pick up Em and take her to piano.  Not sure what I will do during piano.  Then home where DH, Em, and I will have leftover veggie soup for supper.  Sarah is going to the JV/Varsity volleyball games tonight with the other Jr. High players.  DH is planning to pick her up from the game. 

If I have any energy after supper, I will try to pick papers for more layouts.  I worked on one last night and think I about have it worked out.  I did get the laundry finished last night, YAY!

Ugh, just remembered Sarah said something last night at bedtime about needing some $ today.  I should probably run to the bank and school at lunch.

I'm thankful I have a day off.  The last few days have been LOOONG. 

I'm thankful to have what we need and more (even if it means I have to spend the day cleaning it up).

I'm thankful that even though change is a constant, some things remain the same.

And I'm thankful that even when some things stay the same, other things *can* change. 

:smileyhappy:

 

Today: 

clean up the kitchen

mop the kitchen floor

put away the scrappy stuff on the dining room table

clean the main bath

clean the master bath

straighten the bedroom

spot treat the great room carpet and vaccuum

straighten the living room

do a little cleaning out of the van

take Cowboy shopping for clothes for Homecoming after school

fix dinner

clean up dinner

chat?  I hope

 

Woke up to pouring rain this morning.  Which isn't bad, except that we had a leak in the basement wall, which we had thought was the washer, and when Red discovered it was the wall, he dug at least a six foot deep hole, so he could tar the outside of the wall on the outside ... the rain wasn't due until tomorrow ... OOPS.  Soooooo he was not a happy camper this morning when he had to get dressed at 5 a.m. and go out and shovel the mud back into the hole in pouring rain.  Hoping the fix holds even though it didn't have the recommended time to dry and set.  It's lovely outside NOW .......... :smileywink:

Julie, my brain can't handle that twister of change there today!  My brain is too fuzzy. It's a good thing the bulletins are 99% finished! We missed you the past few days, I was wondering where you were! Lucky you posted today or we would have started a Geo-hunt...

So... why did Red bother getting dressed? I mean, he was just gonna get wet and muddy anyway...

lol, sorry,but I had to say it. Hope the fix holds.

Stacy, good for you for bailing on GS after an hour, no matter how much you love it! I hope you get a good night sleep tonight. Thanks for the thoughts on Mira.

Oh yeah, I need to give Natasha a check for taking the PSAT in October. Thanks for the $ reminder. I wonder if she turned in the crew fees yesterday? (for T-shirt & a few meals)

I hope get to breathe better later. Yay for a full 8 hours? I have no energy, but I'll probably be energized at Garden club time, so I'll send you some then.

I am thankful for great medical care, that Mira didn't break anything, for good friends available at the drop of a hat and that it wasn't either of the two darlings that were here yesterday.

I have NO energy. Post adrenalin blagh but I am sticking to water today. We got Mira cleaned up yesterday when we got home, made her the brat she wanted, then she ate some sliced peaches and talked NON stop! She finally fell asleep on me after the movie. I cried when DH told me Natasha ran home from the coffee shop she was at with her friend. She had just texted asking if she could stay cause her friends Dad was going to be late, when I called her, and I TOLD her my friend was here & Dad was on the way, but she ran non-stop, 20 minutes to get here. My friend said she pretty much collapsed on the floor when she got here. She is home sleeping today - the exhaustion of the week, plus running, seeing the staples and whatever crud she's been fighting all week finally caught up to her.

Mira is at school - thankfully doesn't have PE until Monday. She was just rarin' to go, and fine, as long as (in her words) she "didn't try to stretch her arms or back. Then it is sore" She didn't eat much, but I made her fav luch, which happens to be mild, so we'll see what happens. I think she'll crash during garden club. DH woke her the first time last night, then refused to do it again because when he did Mira was mumbling "It's my time Dad."

Me, I am heading into work, need to pick up a few more pumpkins - hoping the garden centers have some out? We are harvesting pumpkins today - just have 9 pie pumpkins and I usually have a handful more kids than that.. I am going to make pumpkin bars this afternoon for them to taste. Maybe rhubarb too?

Oh yeah.. chat! I will do my best to be there. If I am not, you know I crashed on the couch with DH prying the computer out of my hands...

I've missed you, too. <3 Just had a lot going on.

and yeah ... well ... we'll just be glad he DID. :smileywink: I think to make that interesting there needs to be an audience, and *I* went back to sleep. Sorry. :smileytongue:
