Morning. Happy MLK day.
Hilarie, ugh to the last minute notice about the project! Thats a little ridiculous. Cute puppy! I hope you have a working dishwasher now.
Laura, happy birthday to Calla! LOL at not being a big fan of the new 8 year old. ;) Does the neighbor girl ski?
Andrea, I hope you get better sleep tonight.
I feel like I had no time to do anything. Worked at school until after 4, then back to pick up Livi at 5. Thankfully I threw dinner in the crock this morning, so we came home, ate, then Alexis and I went to the store. (My dad is coming back this weekend and I needed something to fix for dinner Saturday evening.) Got home, unpacked, washed dishes and it was already 8:30. Went to look for a baby pic of me for a bulletin board I'm doing at school. Opened my mom's closet downstairs and had more tears. I didn't expect that to happen, as I've been in there many times. Sigh... Didnt even find a pic after that. Now I'm finally sitting down, and its time for bed.
Have you heard the song Blessings by Laura Story? It came on my ipod while I was washing dishes. One line says "what if healing comes through tears". I guess I haven't really listened to the lyrics real close before, and this time that line really spoke to me. I guess its ok to still be crying.
LOL Laura. Sorry 8 isn't great - so far....
We got Megan's project done tonight, and I think it turned out great. I told her to write down 10 pictures that would go with her report (which I haven't read, so it's difficult for me to "help"!). She wrote down 8, then we searched Bing images for those 8 pictures & she picked the exact ones she wanted for each. I printed them, she arranged them on the poster board, and I glued them down for her. I have a feeling the teacher will think I did it all (because it looks really good), but it was really all Megan's idea/plan. I'm proud of the work she did! (And hopefully it's what the teacher wants since we were given very little instruction/time!)
I'm glad it's almost Friday. No real reason - just ready for a weekend!
Laura, LOL to not liking your new 8 year old!! We get a day like that every once and awhile too! Hopefully today will be better.
Lori, Don't worry about the tears, it's only been a few months. I still cry sometimes when I think about my best friend and she died 15 years ago!! Mostly when I think about things she never got to experience because she died too young.
Hilarie, Sounds like the project worked out okay - even with the short notice. Too bad about the dishwasher, but at least it will be ready soon!!
Andrea, glad you survived. Sounds like a busy/long day!
A picture of the girls with Megan's project. The blank space in the corner is where she says her report will be attached.
I feel better now!!
Hilarie, the project looks great! I'm glad it went better than expected.
