Good Morning, Ladies! I have some homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to offer you this morning. That is about it. We are going out of town tomorrow so the cupboards are a little bare. But the cookies are delicious and if you wait around till this afternoon, you can indulge in some homemade fudge as well! The first batch of the holidays!
I hope this week has found everyone doing well. It has been a bit of a rough one for us. It started out with Baseball Boy being sick, now Dancer has it and Tigercub is showing signs. Not a great start for an out of town trip but we are hoping for a miracle!
Poor little Dancer has missed bunches this week. Dance class Tuesday, church Wednesday, her tutorial Thanksgiving party AND one of her best friends' birthday party and now it looks as if she will miss acrobats tonight...the whole reason we decided to wait to leave until tomorrow. I'm not sure if she feels worse because she is sick or because she keeps missing out on festivities.
Somehow today, I have to get the oil changed and tires rotated on my vehicle, get the boys' haircut and not expose the rest of the town to Dancer's germs.
In other goings on, Football boy had his "Rock Band" concert last night. After sitting through a recital of about 16 songs such has "Mary Had a Little Lamb", "Frere Jacques", and "Ode to Joy" from the students at the Music Store where he takes lessons, we were treated to two concerts. F.B.'s band played "Shake It Up" by the Cars, "Use Somebody" by someone, and "Beat It" by Michael Jackson. They were really good! Even Tigercub enjoyed it. He was as entertaining as the musicians! The last song before the bands came up was by a guitar student. Tigercub had started to slow down a bit, as it was an hour past his bedtime...then this boy came up and started playing "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath. Tigercub came alive. Apparently, he has a bit of Rock Star in him, cause the boy got down! He clapped and bounced and bobbed that head! during the break between bands my FIL got up for a little break. Tigerfan started waving and calling "Bye, Bye Papaw...Bye!" It is a good thing he is cute!
As for tasks this week. Rachel has been kind and simple! My phones are sparkling. My sock drawer is organized and my bedroom lamps have not a lick of dust. I know...you are thinking, wait, we were supposed to dust the lamps? The answer is no, no we weren't. HOWEVER, as I was cleaning my sock explosion, I happened to notice a little dust on the lamp. So I ran my hand across the base and thought, OH MY! So, I grabbed a nearby wet wipe and cleaned it up. Only as I worked up, I noticed all the dust on the shade. Well, I couldn't leave such a dusty shade on a sparkling base, so I began dusting that as well. OY...I don't know if I have ever cleaned those things! After working on that lamp, I noticed its dingy twin across the room and I couldn't leave it in dusty squalor so I had to give it the same treatment. Because really, I have nothing but time and dusty lampshades on my hands! Anyway...My room is probably much brighter, my sock drawer is nice and organized and the world has been made free of several pairs of tasteless holiday socks that NEVER should have made their way into a retail establishment!
I can only imagine what a few more days locked in the house with sick children could do!
Well, I need to go feed kids, pack, do school, change to oil....have a wonderful weekend and a FABULOUS Thanksgiving! and don't forget to check out Home Sanctuary for more Coffee Talk!
