Its rainy here, but I am not complaining.  My allergies seem to have calmed down a bit, we'll see how the day goes.  My lunch with friends/co-workers got cancelled, so I am on my own for lunch, we'll see how the rain is before I decide what to do.  Jordyn has a football game to cheer at tonight, its way out of town, so its going to be a looooong day for her, won't get home til probably 11 or 11:30. 

This weekend, lots and lots of laundry, lots of cleaning before my parents get here in 2 weeks, I am in a cooking mood, so we'll see what i can come up with and have the kids help me out.  DH mentioned taking the kids to see the 3D Finding Nemo, especially if its still raining, I think both girls are in need of a little one on one parent time, so I am going to try and get that done this weekend.  Other than that, just hopefully a quiet relaxing weekend.  I do have paperwork to do for DH.

Picked up 2 concert tickets that Becca won last week.  And now she doesn't want to go.  It's the 1st home game of the season at the high school, all of Becca's friends are going- and considering what the kid she was seeing did to her this week- I told her to go.  She said for dh and I to go.  I don't know- it's not something I would have wanted to see (I wanted to win a pair of the Michael W Smith tickets they were giving away).  Can't call dh b/c the CNO (Chief of Naval Operations) is at the shipyard today looking at the project that he's working on. 

Then I had a friend of mine ask for money for Menopause- The Musical money.  I said months ago that I wanted to go.  She reserved a block of 20 tickets.  Well- dh comes home with a wedding invite to one of his co-worker's bosses- and I think it's the same day as the "girls day".  Sigh.  And dh is going to want me to go.  I swear if I decide to not do the girl's day thing he had BETTER think about the next time "I" ask for help with something and I get a "Well- I'll have to see".  I get so darn tired of bending over backwards to please everyone in the house- but "I" don't get that kind of respect.............

Not sure what's happening the rest of the weekend.  I should probably take Becca out driving at some point.

Hugs Cheryl! I hope everything works out!! I just realized yesterday that my co-worker's wedding is the same weekend my parents are in town. :0( I want to go, but I don't want to stick them with that night babysitting, we had sort of made plans for that entire day before I realized the wedding was that day, so I need to figure out what's going on. I don't even know what time the wedding is yet, just what day it is.

Morning.  Yep, still morning.  I got the kids off to school and  then went and had breakfast with a good friend.  I Usually go with my mom but she went somewhere with her quilting group this morning.  So i asked a friend.  It's so gorgeous outside.  I ran my errands afterwards.  Picked up a cord of wood cause tomorrow night we are having my volleyball team over for a campfire with smores and hot drinks.  I am working on cleaning up the clutter since I am sure they will be running through the house even though that will be off limits.  Tonight we have volleyball practice and Tim wants to go to some free concert thing.  Not sure I will be in the mood.  Not feeling too great, getting dizzy and it's making me very tired.  I aready come home tired from practices anyway.  Then we have two volleyball matches tomorrow early afternoon.

Sunday will be church and lunch out with the family.

Lots to do this weekend. Megan and I are doing a quick up and back trip to the barn for a lesson on Saturday and then I have to spend the remainder of the weekend getting things in order so everyone has what they need while I'm gone next week. That means groceries, bank, laundry, cleaning, bills, etc. Basically, a week's worth of work in a day and a half. I'm really afraid dh is going to arrange rides for the kids to places, take off for Aikido, and leave them to fend for themselves... He's been better lately but I'm still not convinced he's figured out that we need him around more often. To his credit, Evan was being a jerk on Wednesday and he stayed home from Aikido so the three of us could talk things out. Of course he's going tonight instead but he was there when we needed him. :smileyhappy:

Sunday Evan has a free session to discuss PSAT results with the company that administered the free test last weekend. We have been invited to dinner at my aunt's house on Sunday for my uncle's birthday. Not sure I really want to go. Everyone will want to talk about my Dad's surgery and I'm just not up for that. My cousin will be there with her kids and I really don't like the kids. They're brats... My kids don't like them either. My uncle did help Evan get into the Oxford program last summer so I suppose it's the polite thing to do. :smileytongue:

On the bright side, someone was looking out for dh yesterday. He got a great parking spot at work, came out to a dead battery in the car- dealership right next door, got a jump. Went to get a new battery and made a wrong turn to get to one auto supply store and ended up in the parking lot of another where the battery was cheaper. Got home and all tools needed to do the installation were exactly where they should have been, he even finished installing the battery in time to watch the second half of the Bears game (should have done something else, not the Bears best).

Awesome luck for DH! Ya, da Bears did not have a good game. We were sorta routing for them, couldn't decide which was the lesser of two evils, having them 2-0 to starte the season or having them both 1-1 since we'll likely lose Sunday night also, so we'll all 3 be tied for 1st at 1 and 1. Gosh I LOVE football season!

Hi all, TGIF especially for me - four day weekend yahoo!

Went into work early for a baby shower for two coworkers.  Then it was just a half day for students. I spent the afternoon in yet another DASA training, luckily we were let out a little early.  I took a nap.  Kayleigh spent her half day riding her bike and prepping something for her bff's party tonight.  Ian just hung out here at home.

Kayleigh and I are going to her bff's party tonight.  It's on the level of a sweet 16 but she is turning 17.  I haven't seen the hall where it's being held, but looking forward to food and music and seeing the teens have a good time. 

Tomorrow is our 22nd wedding anniversary.  We'll be going out to lunch, and then getting celebratory Chinese and watching a Once Upon a Time marathon in the evening. Kayleigh plans to be at her bff's in the morning (she's sleeping over tonight )and then cycling. Not sure what Ian is going to be up to.

Sunday, I'm having a coffee/tea date with a friend in the morning. I'm sure Kayleigh will be out cycling and I'll probably spend the rest of the day cleaning.  Might go to the mall with Ian, who needs jeans and long sleeved shirts, but we might wait until Monday

I love football season too! I grew up going to my grandparents' every Sunday to watch the *gasp* Packers play. If there were enough of us we would have a family pool. Good times!
