Whew. It’s been a long day (or two or three 🙂 )…
Sunday we woke up late. Well, I woke up late. My first thought was to stay home and let matt teach the girls with his boys. Then I got a call telling me I would have the younger class too… so I quickly got it together and went. I was glad that I did. A busy afternoon, a meeting before evening church and a baby shower before bed. I got a text from mom telling me they had a surprise for me. I said what? she texted back “f w”… huh? then “fu wu” … what? finally it came to me! fudgie wudgie! I heart fudgie wudgie. Yum. It was my valentine. I have the best parents. Mom made the cutest valentines for each of the kids with pics of her with them. So cute.
Monday the kids were home for president’s day. Another crazy hectic day! The bright spot was the fudge.
Today I went with mom to the mall after taking Iz to school. We were looking for clothes/accessories for the big golden anniversary. I wore the WRONG shoes. Seriously! They were pretty comfortable Sunday, but they are casual heels I wore because my jeans are extra extra tall length and I hate them to drag on the floor. ick. So, about half way through the mall my feet felt like they were on fire. Walking on the balls of my feet and each step was a major pain! We did Macy’s, Dillards, tons of little stores and ended at JCPenney to leave. I actually got some slip on houseshoe type shoes (kinda mules) and wore them out. My feet still hurt. Even after a foot massage courtesy of Emelia, the foot massage extraordiare. I un-heart those bad mean shoes.
Another drama today was helping amanda mail off some apps for scholarships that had to be postmarked today and she was waiting for letters of recommendation. It all worked out and she got it mailed. It is starting to sink in that she is actually going to college next year. She is considering changing her major to pre-med. We need to find some custom rubber stamps!
Izzy had a pretty good day at school. They were having her do yes and no with signs on her hand socks… and they asked her if she wanted to get on the bike and she told them no more than once so they felt like they had to go with her choice. I suggested they don’t ask her Thursday 🙂 … She was sleepy today and is already in bed asleep.
I finally watched Fireproof. I cried three times. 1st when he put the flowers where the computer had been with the note that said, “i love you more.” ah. So sweet. Next when he apologized at her bedside. and last at the end. Such sweetness. I usually don’t get drawn into sappy stuff like that. I’m like a machine. Just kidding, but this was a great movie. Matt thinks is was more of a “chick flick” than facing the giants. I don’t. I actually liked it better.
I know it’s been a great mystery without my menu posted. It’s probably been driving you crazy right? Last night I made enchiladas, guac, broc, salad, and corn… It was yummy. So good in fact we had a repeat tonight with leftovers! Which means I’m going to have to cook tomorrow. I’m thinking grilled chicken salad.
Okay, I’ll go back to being underwhelmed with AI. And then to bed.
