Who knew that once Nicholas started Kindergarten he would be coming home every day with new things to make me laugh??
Me - Nicholas did you have a good day?
Nicholas - Yes, we did the pokey pokey today, but I didn't do it too much cause I got confused with my left and my right foot.
Jasmine is enjoying her fourth grade but not really too happy, they started on monday and she's had homework every single day. I am not sure why they are already giving them work but what can I do? I keep explaining to her that things just get harder every year and she will have to adjust. Of course who knew that 9 year old girls were so hormonal, everything is filled with drama......this afternoon she came running into the kitchen, crying, because she had forgotten her composition book at school and couldn't do her homework which means she'll stay in for recess tomorrow and do it in the classroom.
You would have thought that it's the end of the world, she's been in a foul mood since then. Makes me so eager for the teenage years...NOT! LOL
So you may be wondering what exactly I'm doing to fill my time alone, let's just say that the house has never been cleaner, there is this amazing feeling of getting a chore done without interruptions. Who knew that if you started putting away laundry and had no interruptions you would be done within 20 minutes? I'm not used to this, it usually takes me a day, put away a shirt, mommy I'm hungry, put away some pants, mommy I'm thirsty, put away some underwear, fighting kids. This is a whole new way of living for me people LOL
In the meantime I've got a couple projects going on. The other day Katy mentioned using a canning jar as a candle holder and I smiled, because she must have read my mind....last week I made these, see them in the photo above, they're small jars above my stove, all I did was pop in a tea light and VOILA! instant country deco.
I have another tote bag I'm making for myself and I am trying to get started on the christmas projects, especially the advent calendar.
But I find that I get distracted because of the Olympics. I LOVE the Olympics, especially Michael Phelps in the swimming and anything to do with gymnastics. I sat up until way too late last night, watching the girls gymnastics and it broke my heart, I felt so bad for them, but so proud too, they are amazing.
BTW, Barb did an interesting post on the scoring being used for the Gymnastics, I have no clue why they changed the way they do it, but I'm confused and I was glad to see Barb confused too LOL I hate feeling that way alone! LOL
I haven't done my interesting cooking lately as a matter of fact I feel that my food blog is being neglected, but things will change in a few days. I'm getting my menus ready for the next two weeks and I'm hoping to make some really yummy stuff and then share it with you all.
For now, I'm going to take a shower, get into my jammies and help the kids get ready for night time, then I have more Olympics to enjoy.
I know, I know, this post was all over the place, I've switched subjects faster than the Arizona drivers switch lanes, which if you lived here you would totally understand. *snicker*
Tomorrow I'll try to come up with something more thought provoking, or interesting, or that actually makes sense, ok?
