So today I was eating my Chobani and the phone rings. That's ODD. I think, I haven't heard that sound in almost a week! It looks like qwest has received payment. PHEW!
What I have missed, though, is blogging and reading my bloggy friends.
We are winding down our summer, we are taking a family vacation to a resort in central Minnesota which we are all looking forward to. Each for our own reasons: Mine; I don't have to spend the FINAL week of summer vacation listening to "I'm bored." "So and so taking my stuff!" "I don't WANT to go to the beach again!" instead I've have a CO-
My mom is going to come out and stay with our dog and cat. I am relieved that my fur babies will be in good hands.
Since our kids don't start school until after Labor day, we thought this would be a great time to getaway and avoid the Fair. I love the fair, I really do, and I'm actually having a hard time with the fact that I won't have "fair pictures" from this year. We ALWAYS go. But we can't do both. I bought a few new games to play, bought some dollar bin items as surprises, got AMAZING rates on where we are staying. I mean AMAZING. The only down side is that while we'll be gone school is having their "meet your teacher" day. I called the school and asked if I could get the information since we'd be gone. We found out my son will be in afternoon kindergarten class, which was a surprise to us. We had thought since Butter was AM, he would be AM. Seems that the fates no better with my boy. He is not a morning person, like his mama! We also found out he will have the same teacher Butter had. We liked her a lot. Hopefully she turns out to be good for Roo. (He is easily distracted.) Butter was unimpressed with her teacher, mostly I think because she doesn't KNOW this teacher yet. Butter is a good student, she pays attention, is helpful, does her work...I'm sure she'll like her just fine. I do worry about the classmates she'll have some of those kids...*rolling my eyes* (That's what prayer is for right?)
So with school starting up again I got to thinking... I have a question for you:
If you could learn one thing new what would you like to learn?
(it could be something worthwhile/real or something you wish you could learn but it's dream worthy only)
My answer: guitar (dream worthy) and more recipes, cooking secrets/techniques. OOOOO and photography! First I need a better camera though...so Santa if you are listening...
