It looks like November outside. My feet are cold.
I went to T's room to help make kites for their end of quarter project. The boys made theirs into monster trucks, I-pods, space shuttle (T's), or something with flames coming off of it. The girls did the hearts, butterflies, or simply a standard kite shape. And then the snack was one of those thickly-frosted soft sugar cookies AND three doughnut holes with a Hi-C juice box. Can you say, sugar buzz? Yuck. But one thing I was so happy for was the big hug from my dear boy as I walked out of the room.
I've been fascinated with some stories I've found on other blogs of people I have marked on my google reader. Most have to deal with multiple births or sick children or babies dying too soon. I'm not sure why, but I find life so fascinating. I think the good thing that comes forth from it is that I'm thankful for three healthy kids.
A good friend here is facing a major, life-altering surgery today. I can't get her off my mind.
How do you write on a blog and have the dash go through the word like you are really wishing you could say that, but use a different word. If you're all doing a collective 'huh?', please forgive. I might have to search the web. I think I figured it out
We have a 'special' visit tomorrow and then a 'special Sunday' this weekend. How great!
Our kitchen is to have drywall spray done today. Also a bit of the basement. Don't let people fool you and say once they put plastic down it contains the dust. They're lying to you. It is a terrific mess.
I better get a move on it. The kids will be home within the hour since it is only 1/2 day today. Good thing I remembered this time!
