...I'm with Kelley?

...I don't get boy/girl sleepovers at this age?

...I'd say it's setting the stage for dangerous behavior?

...and I'm a kid who my best friend was a boy...and we DID have sleepovers, but our parents put the stop to that in 3rd grade?

...and you know what?

...it was FINE?

...and we're still very good friends to this day?

...and I totally agree, that after the age of about 8, you don't NEED to be having sleepovers with boys??

...my guy friend just so happens to be a distant cousin of mine, so that helped, but still?


...congratulations to Justen?!?!

...that's FANTASTIC???

...and to get a job in this economy is amazing?????

...k...off to work again?

...happy hump day??

DiD YoU KnoW......

...that I am thankful for everyone who helped out with Ben's traveling journal???

...that Kimberly, Ben is getting a HUGE kick out of the "Master Ben..." on the envelope???

...that I had a chance to peek in the journal that arrived at the school?

...that Ben said "Wow...everyone else in the class had grownups write in their journal and mine is the only one with kids???"

...and he added "I hope all of those kids didn't mind doing homework like that for me!"

...Anna, do you know if your friend was able to send the journal to the school?

....Ben's class went to Medieval Times then to the Museum for an "Amazing Race" style challenge yesterday?

....I had 3 boys and 2 girls in my group?

...they were so excited and a lot of fun - I had a fantastic group?

...that we were required to find 13 exhibits in under 2hrs - 3 floors of the huge museum?

....I took it one step further and took a picture of the group at each exhibit for "proof"

...that I said "Okay....make a silly face?"

...and the boys did, but the girls looked at me with a "Are you FOR real??" look on their face????

....that I quickly remembered that girls mature faster than boys, so I had the girls "strike a pose" and the boys make a silly face?

....that it was SO much fun????

...I am surprised at how mature the girls are? In their poses, what they talk about and how much they know???

...that the parents of these kids would be very impressed with how their children acted??

...that Ben will be sending postcards out to everyone who helped him out? He is trying to figure out which postcards to get?

..that I miss my daily visits here and I need to start coming back??

DID YOU KNOW........

....I'm feeling a lot better

....still a bit bruised on the inside, but I'm over the anaesthetic, I hate how it takes me so long

....the incisions are looking good, but the dissolvable sutures are hanging about & driving me mad!! I managed to pull one out, but there are still 2, 1 that catches on my pants & the other in my bellybutton that scratches!!

....I'm off to the Bowel & Gyn surgeons on Friday & I'm nervous about when they will be doing the surgery & how involved it will be. According to my discharge papers my bowel is stuck to itself, and several spots on my abdo & pelvic walls.

....the pain from it is now worse than when I went to the Dr for it in the first place! I'm hoping it is just because it has been disturbed & it will settle & not stay the same until the next surgery.

....I waited on the 'list' for this surgery for 11 months!!!!!

....surprisingly, Addison has been pretty well behaved & even put the garbage by the kurb tonight with only being asked once!!!!!!!!

....Eloise had a hard time when I was in the hospital, but has settled now

....she even decided that instead of worrying about kicking me in her sleep she would sleep in her own bed!!!!

....Eloise has her first Eisteddfod of the year starting this weekend & she is nervous!! Tonight she said "am I always like this before the first one?" & I told her yes, she decided that she would be OK then, especially when I pointed out the trophies from the same time last year

....well, I'd better go, it's 2am!!! I've been having a little trouble getting to sleep again!!!!!

Christol, good luck with the new neighbors. You guys deserve a positive change?

We just took the kids to the wedding not to the reception?

Congrats to Justen on the new job. Sounds like a great new beginning?

Totally strange about the boy/girl sleepover. Would not fly with me?

Kelley, hope you can get some answers in regard to the foot pain?

I am suffering with some foot pain, but have chosen to stay in denial when in fact I know I need to go to the doctor for it?

Carrie, the field trip sounded fun?

Helen, glad to hear you are doing well. Hope that you can get some good sleep?

Missi, that little Owen is just too darn cute!?

This week has flown by?

We head to VB for the first of the graduations on Friday?

I am making a yummy spicy chicken salad for the party and I also created 4 photo ribbon banners of pictures of my nephew to use as decoration at the party. The pictures are old and new and it really makes me wonder how this tiny little baby boy has grown into a 6'5" man!?

Got my hair highlighted today?

Also, purchased a dress for the graduation. Not sure if I'll wear it or if I'll go with the outfit I had planned?

Oh, I got a coupon to get a Spicy chicken sandwich free at Chick-Fil-A?

I tried it and it was very spicy. I would probably add cheese and lettuce next time?

So jealous of all the families who are out of school?

Have a good day?

...summer 2010 - so far so good here?

...Karol, I can't imagine still being in school?

...but honestly I'd rather start later and go later?

...Mariah starts on August 13th?!?

...isn't that early?

...it's Freshman day...they send only the Freshmen to highschool on the first day?

...I thought that's pretty inventive?

...Owen has summer school today and he's NOT happy about it?

...I'm not sure I have it in me to fight him on this all summer?

...but I know he NEEDS to learn to cut the cord?

...he's been fussy all morning and just informed me he's "GOING BACK TO BED!" ~ which he NEVER does, and it's solely for the purpose of keeping him from school?


...I've never had a kid that didn't like preschool?


...well, Natalie would have probably been that kid, but I worked there, so she didn't mind?


...I think boys seem to have a bigger tendency to be mama's boys, at least in this house?

...my mom says it's because I baby him?


...she used to tell me stuff like that with the girls, and they're fine?

...I'm calling the doc on Natalie today?

...she's been having headaches, like really bad...appears to be migraines?

...now she would come by that naturally, my mom, my sister and I all get migraines, but at 10 she seems a bit young, and she's having them multiple times a week...and I'm getting a bit nervous?

...Kelley and Karol, where is your foot pain?

The girls start back on the 25th of August. So I guess we get some time on the other end?

We were supposed to get out on the 10th (1/2 day), but with all of our snow days we have to go
