Today was LIBRARY DAY for me!

I got to spend the day in the school library.  I volunteer there every Wednesday.  It was fun, the children got to come in on their own to return books and check new ones out.  Yeah, it got a bit boring in between children but HEY, it’s a LIBRARY filled with BOOKS, so guess what I did?  Yep, i read LOL

Otherwise, we’ve had a nice quiet day.

I’m still excited for my mom….heard from her once today.  She called during lunch and I could barely hear her talking to me LOL

That baby is so cute!  My baby was round-faced but not quite that round-faced when he was that little….his face has always been more heart-shaped, and of course, a bit browner than that baby-face.

Anyhooooooooooow, it’s Wednesday, I’m at the library borrowing their computer because I spent the morning asleep.  Yeah, I went to Curves and worked out but afterwards was overwhelmed with sleep, so that’s what I did.  Then I woke up and had some Totino’s Pizza Rolls and read for a while (the new Diane magazine that Curves puts out) and then decided to come here.  I needed to type some stuff up for school; we need volunteers to read to the children during the day (in our new library) and I volunteered to get the volunteers.

I’m always volunteering for something, LOL

shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!  I’m at the library, I can’t LOL too LOUDLY!

So I typed up a note to give to the teachers, asking them which days of the week and what times would work best; and then a note to parents and parishioners asking them to help us out.  The teachers will be getting their note first and after I know what days and times will work, I can sned out the note to the parents and put it in the church bulletin.

I borrowed Ratatouille from the library today; we saw it when it came out (not dh, though) and ds wanted to see it again.  It came in today.  Maybe we can watch it Friday night.

Not sure what kind of mood I’m in today…….was sleepy earlier, now I’m just kind of thinking about stuff.  Christmas is coming.  Family stuff.  Still missing my dad.

I found out yesterday that my brother and his family are coming to the KCK area for Christmas.  We don’t travel for Christmas.  Well, we have TWICE since our marriage:  the first time in 1991 after my dad’s death and the second time was in 1998 when I was expecting Daniel.  My dh is taking off work the week after Christmas but I know without asking him that he won’t want to go to KCK and that’s alright, because I don’t want to go anyway.  It’s just too far to travel, we don’t have the $$ right now to travel (I’m saving my $$ to go to KC or St. Louis to see Michael Buble already!!), it’s just best to stay home.  Although, ds asked if we could go to COLORADO to snowboard LOL  I think one of his schoolmates’ families goes to Colorado for Christmas.  Another family goes to Orlando every Christmas……….we are boring, we just stay home!

Okay, I suppose it’s time to say so long.

So long!

Tuesday Afternoon

So it’s Tuesday?

I haven’t been blogging as often as before.  Not sure why not this week.  I’ve been distracted by books, I think.  Right now there is a stack of about TEN books that I’m planning on reading.  Most are Christian authors.  Although this weekend, I read a book called Lottery that was really good and it was not by a Christian author.  I’m too lazy to go upstairs and look up the author (sorry!) but it was a very good book.  Actually the author’s first name was Patricia, which is my first name, I do remember that, haha!

Daniel is back to school.  He came home with homework for last Thursday and half a day Friday.  We got the Thursday homework finished last night and need to do the Friday homework tonight.  I gave him until 4:30 to relax and play until he has to sit and work.

I’ve told our school principal that I would coordinate the American Diabetes Association’s School Walk for Diabetes.  There was a request in the school newsletter for someone to coordinate it.  So of course, me with nothing else to do, volunteered.  I’ve been at their website looking for information.  It should be fun.

Okay, I better finish up at the ADA website.  Daniel needs help with homework in a few minutes, too.

Adios for now!

Hello, Friday! Thank Goodness You’re Here!

Ahhhhhhhh, I think I’ve recovered from yesterday.  I found the website for the activity we had, click here and you can learn all Food Power.  The webpage shows the layout of the program…I was the stomach and the small intestines. I didn’t do a puppet show like it mentions, though…I just had to talk alot.  The children loved it, they said it was GROSS!  They loved the jar of “Belly Barf” and the photo on the wall of stomach contents.  Eeew!

Just called the bariatric center and they STILL haven’t received their Center of Excellence standing YET.  It’s still pending.  So my file just sits and waits.  Like me.  Oh well.  I’ve done everything I’m supposed to.  Waiting is hard.

Last night after soccer practice, ds and I went to Mazzio’s.  We had a medium pizza and couldn’t finish it.  There are three slices in the fridge for my lunch.  There’s also the leftover macaroni and cheese from two nights ago, so I can have either.  NOT both, haha!

After while I need to fry those chicken wings for dinner tonight.  We’ll have them with mashed potatoes and a veggie.  I need to fry them early and then stick them in the fridge because the guys like their fried chicken cold, not hot.

And since it’s Friday, I’ve started my laundry.  Right now there’s a load of jeans in the wash.  I need to do all of dh’s workclothes since he leaves on Tuesday morning for Minnesota.  OH that reminds me, he needs a jacket to take along and it hasn’t been washed since he wore it last…it probably needs washing.

Okay, time for me to check the rest of my email……BBL!
