Coffee Talk 10/23/09

Good Morning Ladies! I am embarrassed to tell you that one week later, I STILL have not been to the grocery store. Now, part of that was intentional...waiting for payday. But that day has come and gone, and still no groceries! I have just been too busy to fiddle with unimportant things like feeding my family nutritionally sound food.

Instead, we are going the route of Ramen Noodles, bologna and the occasional carrot and ranch dip. But something tells me that you probably don't really want any of those things. I totally have sodas, though. I mean, you have GOT to have priorities! :)

I am absolutely beside myself because in just a few short hours I will be bidding my family adieux and heading out with a friend to the Extraordinary Women Conference in Tupelo, MS. This was a huge surprise! A great surprise! A last minute surprise! She won tickets on the radio and called me Monday to see if I wanted to go! Oh yes I do!

So, this morning will be filled with rushed lessons, packing, and preparing the kids for a night with dad. I must admit a small amount of guilt (almost not on the radar)! Tigerfan must take all the kids with him to take Dancer to dance tonight. He must then get them all up and ready for an 8 a.m. ballgame in the morning and there is not one thing in this house to feed them. Okay, he probably wouldn't have fed them in the house anyway, but I do feel bad that that option isn't at least there! Supermom would have had individually plated portions of a nutritionally balanced meal frozen and labelled for this occasion. I am clearly NOT Supermom!

Anyway, I hope all of you have an amazing weekend! I KNOW I will! I probably won't be around until at least Sunday, but I will be thinking of all my sweet Company Friends and wishing you could be there with me!

Blessings, and don't forget to check out Home Sanctuary for more Coffee Talk.

Hello! Wishing you a fabulous girls weekend away. And don't worry, it's truly amazing what our hubbies can come up with food wise. "Cereal for dinner, kids!"

What a great opportunity! Superwoman wouldn't need to go to a special conference, so don't compare yourself to her.

And who needs groceries?

Have a great time!

I figure, he's babysitting... I do it on my own all the time, he can do it on his own for a little while. :)
Of course, the flip side of that is that I cannot complain that he does it on his own HIS WAY and not mine. lol

I am so excited for you! Have a great time! Your family will be fine and better for the opportunity to take responsibility in their lives! Have a great weekend (I am jealous!)

I am so excited for your "overnight gataway." I'll look forward to hearing about it on your next blog entry. As to your dog story.....I completely understand and yes, we were so blessed that both dogs were past the puppy stage. I really don't think either one of us could have endured it at this stage in our lives.:) By the way, I'm sure Tigerdad will survive without full cupboards. :)
