I think this ramble will be full of questions...
Would you like to know how to have a really, really good time and feel like you belong?
But make sure you go with people like this:
We attended a FUNdraiser for Camp Footprints, the summer camp Brenna attended this year. There is nothing quite like hanging out with these fabulous people-staff and campers alike. Brenna and I bowled with two young women we had never met before, but felt like we had been friends with them for forever. We cheered each other on for THREE games, gave each other advice on bowling strategies and just generally had a blast.
Have you ever done some updating to your home?
Have you done the updating while doing three shows?
Have you done said updating while your child has the stomach flu?
No? It's a real kick in the pants.
I will say I'm grateful for the worst of it hitting during the day. Usually it's
in the middle of the night...why IS that?
I'm seriously hoping this bypasses the rest of us. I remember when my girls were little, washing my hands in Lysol. I think one night I had to wash my feet as well. Don't ask. It was a bad night.
Our kids, when sick, usually end up in bed with me. I used to think it was better this way so my husband could get some sleep and be able to go to work in the morning,
I'm should have changed that program from the beginning.
Unfortunately, this bug hit during Spirit Week at school and Brenna only made it to two of the days to dress up.
Air compressors for nail guns are noisy little buggers, aren't they?
Man, I wanted to try that tool in the worst way as our contractor was putting molding around the kitchen windows. It makes the best sound (the nail gun, not the compressor) and is so efficient.
How much do you go to Goodwill?
I haven't been for a while, but with trying to find outfits for Spirit Week at school and Halloween, I have been there quite a bit.
I found these:
They have nothing to do with Spirit Week or Halloween, but they matched what I was wearing much better than my black sandals. And it's fall. (well, it was for three days.) I need something besides sandals...
Do you ever watch the show, Parenthood? I love it. Kristina announced to her family this week that she had breast cancer and I cried with her whole family. I don't usually cry like that over stuff in movies. Well, except the movie Ramona and Beezus had me boo-hooing like there was no tomorrow. I read all the Beverly Cleary books to my eldest and I love, loved that time in her life. The movie made me so nostalgic, I found myself in the bathroom in the theater crying so hard and listening to everyone say how cute the movie was. Didn't they know it was an end to a beautiful era?
Wow. This ramble is getting too strange.. I'll sign off for now and wish everyone good health and a great weekend!
P.s. don't forget your flu shot!
