Oh My Goodness!!! How can you not feel thankful when the weather outside is GLORIOUS!!!! Sunny and nearly 60 degrees… It’s BEAUTIFUL outside!!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! I’m Thankful that although I am a generally not-super-good cook, I make a mean corned beef and cabbage, which I actually made yesterday… YUMMY and even better the second day!!
Sean won his Den’s “fastest car” trophy in the Pinewood Derby!!! He was so proud of himself!!! His car did great, but I didn’t expect him to be the fastest in his den!!! I’ll have photos to post soon… Kathryn’s car also did great, and she actually came in 4th overall… but although the siblings can race, they don’t get any of the trophys…
I’m very excited that my class tonight at Ink About It is SOLD OUT! I’m so looking forward to teaching this one!! I think it’s going to be really fun, and I hope everyone likes the book as much as I do!!
This is the first week of lent… and I have a funny little story… Last Wednesday, we’re driving home and Sean tells me that he’s giving up video games for lent… He loves to read, and figures that he’ll just read more… I reiterated that it’s 40 days… not just til Sunday, but he was sure… and he’s doing great so far… Kathryn, on the other hand, decided that she was going to give up ice pops… hmmm… oh, and after some discussion, she’s also going to give up doing chores for “money,” now she’ll just do it for quarters… :)
As for me… I’ve given up 2 things… Dunkin Donuts… (ACK! Might as well just shoot me now!) and bad language… The DD is going fine… although, I fear that not stopping this afternoon will be pretty difficult, I’ve had a bad day at school… the “no bad language” is a bit harder than I thought it would be… When I told Sean his response was “Mama, there’s no way you can not say “crap”….” well… ummm…. I wasn’t counting that as bad language… I may have to re-think ’cause I don’t think I can not say “crap” either :) I sometimes surprise myself… for example… I had no idea how much I said a$$… the other bad words have been pretty easy to get rid of, but I catch myself with that one more often than I thought… It’s all a work in progress, right? I have been trying…
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week… Go out and enjoy the weather today… even if it’s only for a little while… and count your blessings :)
