The end of last week the Chairman asked if I wanted to go to a suite. Oh my love! You want us to have alone-time! And a suite no less! I immediately envisioned a two or three room suite with room service and pampering to boot. Then he added it was at a baseball game with about 15 other people. Oh. Well sure! We went and enjoyed incredibly nice seats and a roomy living space and a buffet of Mexican food along with the obligatory baseball fare of hot dogs and brats. The Chairman worked the crowd while I sat next to daughter #1 so I could steal her cotton candy.

On-line ordering can be a risky business. I threw caution to the wind and ordered some new stools for our kitchen island. The order was delivered so fast it seemed like they had already pulled it from the warehouse before I confirmed my payment. In less than 36 hours, three boxes were delivered. And not only were they what I wanted, but they exceeded every expectation of quality. I hope I'm as lucky next time.
Cooking for the Chairman is extremely rewarding. He's appreciative of most every meal and says so. The MYP? Not so much. Some days they love it. Like a taco or spaghetti or homemade pizza night. This week I heard the comment, 'everything you make just tastes too homemade'. Um. Isn't that a good thing? So we all sat down and listed off options and favorites and hopefully I don't disappoint the masses so much.
Bedtimes around here vary. In fact, I almost beat some of the MYP to bed some nights. It does seem though that they love to have alone-time right before bed. That is if I can keep my eyes open. Last night I was lying beside one of our progeny and was trying to get away so I could go brush my teeth and call it a day and I heard this comment: "I like that feeling when I feel loved." I think that short sentence sums up some of the the most preciousness of life. Very well said my dear.
I saw a bunch of funny 'thank yous' you could send to teachers at the end of the school year. One resonated with me. "Thank you for not mentioning that I sent the exact same lunch to school every day for an entire school year". Well it is somewhat by choice with one of our MYP. One of the biggest reasons I am soooo glad for the school year to end is to not have to get up at 6:00 and make three lunches in rapid fire.
