Sunday.. Sunday...
Actually Saturday first... went to eat mexican again. We can't get enough of the place. Got to eat there at least once a month. bought new shirt at Cato's ... bought daughter a new dress at K-mart. My husband (and son) worked on his Pinewood Derby car. It is flouresent orange. The racing was so close last year that I wondered if the dark color of the car made it hard for the judge to see. Sooo ... this year it is unmistakable. Maybe that is all the judges eyes will see is my sons car... hehe he.

Today was good.. so far... I plan to stay up and watch as much of the Academy Awards as I can stand. When I go without sleep, it is hard on me for the next couple of days.

After church one girls mom went home real quick and brought back her little puppy , a tiny Shitzu. It is sooo cute and doesnt shed and I didn't feel sneezy or itchy. hmmm.. trying to talk husband into letting my keep one in the house.

Where did the week go?????.... I worked Monday and Tuesday and Thursday... today I did grocery shopping.
It has been cold here the last few days. My sister in Hotlanta had snow and the kids got out of school. My kids are really wanting to see snow. Though I think my son would accept flooding if it would get them a day out of school. Speaking of school and my son, the elementary school has been doing an incentive to get the attendance up. All of the kids who make perfect attendence get their names put in a hat and four from each grade get a 25$ check. My son won this time. He is being good about saving his money, but not in the bank. He wants to save for a game or two.
I bought a gourmet cheese cake that has six different kinds of cheesecake all together. I was disappointed in the taste. Though my husband likes them. I think one of my favorite cheescakes is still the Royal No-bake from a box. A good NewYork cheesecake from a restaurant is nice too.

Hello Sunday....

What happened to Friday and Saturday?... Friday was good as I recall. Saturday we spent some time outside in the warm sunshine. It was 70 both days. Sat. I went to the book store at the Mall, the only book store around that I know of. Even paperback books are expensive when you want several to read. ( don't even ask about the local library). My mother ususally supplied me with some books when I visit. My stash ran out. When subing is slow, I like to have a good book.

Church was good today. I actually gave a talk , it was about honesty. We took a family walk around a few blocks this afternoon. It was nice today too.

I worked at the Primary School today, for one of the special ed (sort of) teachers. She was sick this morning when I took my daughter to school and she asked me to stay for her. She has some nice kids in her class.
Tuesday and Weds. I had a headache that nothing seemed to help much , on one side of my face. This morning I felt better, but during the day my head started to ache on the other side of my face; and it won't go away.

Wed. nes. day..... Today I went shopping at Wal-Mart. They sure know how to suck down your money, for being a discount store. Tonight I had a girl from church come over and help me make the place mats for the Cub Scout Blue and
Gold Banquet next week. She brought her little sister with her to play with my daughter. Kids can sure get loud when you just add one or two.

Hello Tuesday evening... I just got the kids to bed. I like to stay up awhile after they go to bed just to wind down. My husband is currently walking on the treadmill. I did this morning during The View. I didn't work today, work seems a little scarce these days. I would like to work a day or two this week. But I admit that I enjoy a stretch of time off once in awhile. There are not as many good programs on TV as there use to be. I can't always find something to watch. My hubby has just found H.R. Pufnstuf on TV Land. I remember the days.......

For being a holiday, not much is happening here today. We are pretty much sitting around doing nothing. I don't even have a good book to read. Hey, Terry, if you just give away the books you have read and aren't keeping , how about a donation to your little sister. :)
My husband did finish the taxes. We bought a TaxCut program for 10 bucks, that did them for us. It worked very well. Now we will wait on the rebate to pay for this computer.

Husband and son just left to take the dog out hunting practice. He is cute little beagle.

For lunch I made a chili cream cheese mix and we poured it over fritos, instead of dipping it. It was good.

Hello world!! I am coming to you from the keyboard of our new Inspirion 1100 laptop computer. I don't know why we have decided lately to buy a new car and an updated computer, They just became necessary all at the same time. I am enjoying this computer. I still love and use the old one, but this one is located in the kitchen corner where I have my family office area. (Near the kitchen table, by the TV, Of course). Our older PC was 4 1/2 years old, and would not run some things that we wanted to do. Oh well, it is only money. We can live on the streets when we retire. LOL

Friday the kids had their Valentine parties at school. Lots of candy was brought home. Not much of it is a kind that my children will eat. When it comes to candy I guess it is a good thing that they are picky.
My husband sent me flowers and bought some of my favorite candy. He also got a valentine for our daughter. And I got something for our son.

I bought a Beta fish today. I kind of want a 5 or 10 gallon fish tank. But I don't know where I can put it that will hold that much weight.

I had some good kids in the classes at school today. We went to cubscouts tonight. It is busy , busy this time of year. We are getting ready for our Blue and Gold Banquet this month.. then the Pinewood Derby in March.. and the bridging of some of our webelos to the boy scouts in March... I hate to wish for time to pass , but April is sounding good to me, when the cubscouts stop meeting until Sept. again and by then our boy will be in the Boy Scouts too. yea.

Monday Monday....
I am not working today, but I am booked the next two days in first and second grade.
Speaking of wanting a new computer... my husband got a free new Dell printer that is very nice.. but it will not work with our old computer.. it is sad that a computer that is 5 years old is considered old...
Must go husband home for lunch...

We ate a large breakfast and then my husband had to do some work at the office while I did a bunch of laundry. I never did get to the ironing. Then this afternoon we went to eat at Ryan's I love the buffet too much.
My husband has been looking a laptop computers. I thought we might get one for next Christmas, but I don't know if my husband can wait that long. Our desktop works fine for us still, but once in a while we are running into things we want to do that our 5 year old computer can't handle.
I am currently watching Trading Spaces, I like the show. :)

I worked in the Elementary School library today. I loved it. I really like doing all the jobs that help teachers and kids from the sidelines.

It rained and blustered here a little bit all day.

I watch Survivor whenever it is on. Last night on the AllStar version, they voted off Rudy. I love Rudy. Everyone cried when they booted him off. He had hurt his foot and the other team mates thought he was struggling with the competitions. There was one faithful team mate that said " there is no way I am writing Rudy's name down" . We also like to watch that Donald Trump show. The women have been kicking the men's behinds. This week they mixed up the teams, now they are co-ed. And a woman got fired for the first time. I have always liked CSI, but this season they have been getting grosser. I still like the story lines just not the show of gore. I like Alias too. Sydney's dad, Jack, is a cool customer.

I gave my son a giant book of jokes for kids. Now we have a comedian in the house. I gave my daughter a giant book on horses. Now she is in horsey heaven.

Not working today either... am booked tomorrow , though...
I have already walked on the treadmill.. and did some cleaning... My son called from school to inform me that he got hit with a basketball and his glasses got malformed some how.. can't wait to see that and if it will cost me anything.
My cat follows me out to the mailbox.. he walks in front of me almost tripping me (all cats that I have known seem to think this is the thing to do) He rolls on the ground in front of me like he wants attention... but when I reach down to pet him , he bends his back away from me... It seems that he wants petting and attention soo bad but doesn't like it at the same time.. go figure...
Today in my local small town newspaper , the front page was about a peanut processing plant opening up for in season jobs... I did say small town...

I think we ate out four of the last six meals. That is too much, not a normal occurance though. I went grocery shopping today.. I came home with chocolate covered dounuts , hostess cupcakes and a box of chocolates hmmm..... oh so healthy.... I did have some green beans , tomatoes and apples too.

Survivor was good... Richard Hatch was annoying... All of the contestants seemed a little flat. I guess they know what to expect and are not looking forward to it.

Monday I subbed in kindergarten... Stayed up late last night to watch CSI Miami just because it finally wasn't going to be a rerun.. it was too gory for me.. I like the show but don't think they need to show so much gore... Was I watching an episode of "Freddy and Jason" or TV?

Today I am home catching up on laundry and other various house work...

Our outdoor cat has been going across the street often to visit the cute little girl calico kitty who lives there. We are worried that he may end up a kitty pancake. She is pretty cute though!
