Mildew. Blech. And more mildew. This is all I smell anymore. It comes in different flavors apparently too depending on your surface. Musty Mildew. Saturated Mildew. Fuzzy Mildew. Blech, blech, blech ...
was so nervous/excited about her friend's slumber party tonight I
finally told her she should do laps around the yard. And she did. She
also told me that all she thought about today in school was the party
since she was so excited about it. But, she said she paid attention
during math so that it would distract her. She doesn't care much for
math. They are decorating cakes at the party Cake Boss style. I have
never seen the show, but they are all getting their own cake to
decorate. I'm excited to hear about it.
Elijah on the
other hand is not happy that Madelyn gets to do ANOTHER fun thing
because he NEVER gets to do sleepovers. Apparently this was a prayer
request at school today too, that Elijah wouldn't be too sad. I kept
telling him that he and I get to have special time together by going to
Back to School night, etc. :P Although tonight he told me we were NOT
on a date because I am his mom. So, it's okay if we get married, but we
can't go on a date? Wait. Maybe he doesn't want to marry me anymore??
That's sad. Healthy, but sad.
was an article recently about women requesting hair like Michelle
Bachman's. I didn't think much of it until after my haircut yesterday
and well, I think I had the same cut. Thankfully, I do style it
differently, but the way it was yesterday very well could have looked
like I was going for her look.
Which, by the way, as
long as we are on the subject, she doesn't have much of a "style."
Nothing against her hair, but it is pretty much medium length with some
long layers. There is nothing super distinctive about it.
And, I was going to post a pic of my hair, but our camera is dead. Very sad. I didn't think to use my webcam.
picture that is probably worth taking is of a guest of ours who shows
up at dinner time when we have mini raw carrots for our vegetable. Her
name is Hillbilly Vampire. She has two orange fangs, sometimes only
one, but she talks funny and cracks the kids (and Dan) up. It is well
worth the visit. What's even better is when the kids (and/or Dan) try
to imitate her. They do their best, but Elijah ended up looking more
like a werewolf which we cracked up at.
We definitely need a new camera.
What nice trash people for taking a bunch of our flooded junk. I
set a bunch of stuff out hoping for the best and yay!! they came
Madelyn is so cute after big days like slumber parties, etc. She
comes home and MUST have some down time. So now she is in her room
reading. She has another friend coming over around 3 so she's got to
rest up for her next social event. Thankfully that friend brings her
family with her so we all have friends :oD
Elijah was dancing around like a maniac this morning. No. Not
to music. Just because he said he was some kind of man. I don't
remember now, but seeing his long skinny arms and legs flailing about is
super cute. I know he has to grow up, but I want these days to etched
into my mind forever and ever and always.
It is super cold today. I like Fall. I do. But, we seemed to
have leaped right from summer into the middle of Fall in less than a
day. Brrrrrr. I have my fake Ugg boots on and went to bed in a sweater
Okay, I need to stop here because I am totally procrastinating at this point ... I'm off to clean up a bit. Who's jealous? ;)
