We have finally made it to Friday. Crazy things in the news. Prayers out to everyone involved and hoping everyone stays safe.

1. Weekend Plans?

2. What's for dinner?

3. Did you have braces as a kid?

Yep, I think she's better when she reports under pressure. 

Yeah, maybe that is it. I switched over to GMA as I like them all together better as they seem to truly enjoy each other's company. The Today show just seems so "fake" now.

Exactly my thoughts, spring. I don't like the today bunch when they're just joking around anymore - I do like Matt and Al but Savannah has no personality and Natalie is just silly. I'd still like to get down to NYC again and see them some morning though, That's on my bucket list of things I want to do, Lol.

Yep, they used to be fun. Now they are just dull and look like they are there just to do their job and not actually enjoy who they work with.

I would LOVE to do that too. The problem is I would have to take a VERY early train. GMA is a shorter walk from the train station too.

Yea, You'd be better off spending the night in Manhattan then getting up and over there when it starts. Rockefeller center is so pretty and the lego store is right across the street, Lol. Where does GMA film?

Exactly, it would be much easier.

GMA is at Times Square

<p>Hey Jambles, remember back when you told my I was a fool for letting the orthodontist talk me into wasting money getting braces for my kid? Seems kinda funny now, hunh?</p>

I remember that debate, my kids were in braces back then as well.  Interesting how now it's not foolish to do.

Yea, And oral surgery is the same thing according to you.. Whatever bord.

What about oral surgery?  My oldest had oral surgery last year to remove his wisdom teeth and the youngest will be sometime this year.  I can't imagine withholding oral surgery if it's needed but I can also see doing everything to avoid it if possible.

<<I have to agree with you. I don't usually like her either but I keep turning the channel back to her as she seems to getting more news than CNN and she is just calm and reporting very well.>>

I've had abc streaming on one of my screens at work, they seem to be doing a good job.

I like ABC also. At lunch, I was going back and forth and then trying to watch "regular" shows to see something else.

1. School work. In the next twelve days, I have two unit exams, two quizzes, two research papers due, two homework assignments to complete, 144 textbook pages to read, and four final exams. This week I completed two major school projects. Dh has a major school project due on Thursday. (I guess we should have just bought our degrees, then we'd have time for TV!) Dd14 has her first college class final this week too. Ds13 is working on a science fair something or other involving remote control helicopters.

At some point, we need to remove all of the seats from our minivan and go to Menard's to buy the insulation and doors we need for our bathroom construction project before their sale ends. 

2. Leftovers here, too. I sliced up some sweet peppers and cantaloupe to put out with them to make them look fresh and exciting. 

3. No braces.
