Ready for the weekend? and other ramblings.

It's Friday!  What a crazy week!

In two track meets, the Monroe Jr. High Boys Track Team placed 1st in both.  One was a Quad, one was a dual.  Son placed 4th in the shotput in both.  He won his heat in the 200 meter on Wednesday, placed 4th on Thursday.  Won the 4X200 on Thursday and won their heat on Wednesday.  Overall a great time for all!

Yesterday, Son went in to the orthodontist and was having the beginning appointment for braces.  This means having the impressions, pictures, lecture on cleaning and general taking care of the teeth.  While they(Son and Foxy) were there,  they asked if they could go ahead and get the spacers put in.  So surprise!  He now has six spacers in.  This morning, he looked at me and Daughter and stated, "I can't eat my cereal." and started fake crying.  LOL.  Then he said, "My mouth hurts, but it doesn't hurt as much as a broken nose."  I told him to remember that next week.

I love Dancing With the Stars, but, how many of you are tired of them showing Maks and Kirstie's fall?  I am.  How sad is it that the entertainment news has nothing better to talk about?  They are even going to be on Oprah today.  Really?

So I worry about the government shutting down.  All those elected officials and their friends will be out of a job?  How will they ever survive without a week's pay?  I be that when they finally make everything run again that they won't have missed much in their pockets.

This is going to be an interesting weekend.

Tonight, nothing major is going on.  Maybe grocery shopping.  Tomorrow, Son will finally get his hairs cut, my great-niece's first birthday party is tomorrow, and then the high school musical,West Side Story is being performed.  Sunday is church, and then we are going to see Soul Surfer!  That is a lot of fun for the weekend!

As for my eating habits, it's been a rough week.  I'll weigh myself this evening.  Every morning I have a yogurt, and a granola bar for a mid-morning snack.  Lunch is usually leftovers and nothing until supper.  But my biggest problem in eating is after 9 pm.  I want a big bowl of ice cream or something.  So I am trying not have anything after 9 pm except maybe a cup of hot chai tea.  Let's see how that goes this week.  And, I need to get up and move.


  1. I want to see that movie! It looks so good. My weekends are so busy!! I'm loving it thought because we are right in the middle of baseball season.

  2. Kirsti and Maks handled their fall so well that they were still one of my favorits. My other favorite was Chelsea. She did an amazing job.
