The kids' school is putting on a Christmas Play again this year and this time around the girls both got a big part in it. They are so excited and I am so happy for them. Up til now Gabrielle only had little roles and mostly helped out behind the stage and Rachel only sang in the large choir. This time they are prosecutor and defense attorney in the play "The not so Silent Night". Of course now they have play practice at least 3 times a week after school, plus their homework, Karate, dentist appointments etc. Kids today are so busy, how did we ever make it through life. I never had anything after school, all we did was play and that mostly outside. Looking back those were really fun times and we had no clue. I wish I could let my kids have the same childhood but I wouldn't dare let them run around the way we did.
Tomorrow I have to take Sweetie for her surgery, poor thing. It's necessary though, better for everybody. She'll be okay I'm sure...
Last Saturday we were at a friend's son's wedding, it was so pretty. They looked so darn happy, it was adorable. We didn't stay lone because I left the kids at home with Gabrielle babysitting. She was bugging me all day about having her friend come over for a sleepover and when we weren't back by 5 she kept texting me. Argh. I had told her she wasn't allowed to have her come over until I got back. No way am I having another kid over with no supervision. So anyway, we left fairly early, she had her friend over and all were happy. Sunday morning I made them Belgian Waffles, actually that was for dinner, since Helen (the neighbor we go to every Sunday for lunch, my adopted mother) was out with her girls. They were yummy, I made blueberry sauce, pudding, whipped topping, strawberries. Yumm! Now I wish I had taken a picture :) In the afternoon we walked down to the park. The kids played ball and Rachel and Michael played at the playground. There were a lot of people enjoying the sunshine with their kids.
My floor in the sunroom still has not been done, of course it has only been since July, we wouldn't want to give the guy any pressure about rushing him. I think tomorrow I will call somebody else, I can't stand this anymore. My house is such a mess with everything sitting around in the living room and the sunroom having an unprotected floor where every water spill creates a stain now. It will get to the point where we won't be able to finish the floor. It just makes me so mad... let me go back into my happy bubble and think about scrapping :)
Again, these are all in my DesignerDigitals gallery. The following are in my PixelCanvas gallery (which is down at the moment, again) She is transferring to a new site but the old one is down for malicious intrusion. It's hard to run a business when nothing works so many times. Poor thing and Heather too who is one of her designers trying to sell her stuff. Hopefully it will all get worked out really soon.
See my orchid blooming? I am so thrilled about it. It has been dormant for a few years and now all of a sudden it's blooming. Actually by today there are 3 blooms open. Little things like that make me happy (I'm sure you couldn't tell at all)
Hey, my best friend is a grandma!!! They have a brand spanking new grandson. I can't wait to be able to see him and maybe take some pictures.
Well, maybe I'll have a few minutes now to start a page, I haven't exactly been very prolific this last week. I still have a couple of pages that I did but can't post yet. Oh well. Talk to you all soon. Ciao!
