Things I've learned this week

  • I AM an anti-dentite. I know that now.
  • When it is spring vacation and we are off school for a whole week, one or more of the kids will ALWAYS get sick.
  • Their germs will, without fail, infect me and I will get sick.
  • I really do hate the dentist. (Have I mentioned my dental hatred yet? Have I?)
  • Not being able to chew because of sore teeth would take me to a very mean place were it not for the soft, chewy goodness of Reeses Peanut Butter eggs.
  • Which I vow to stop eating.
  • Tomorrow, I promise.
  • I can lose hours dreaming of my scrapbook room in the new house.
  • Dropping Josh's car off at the car transport place will make this move seem like actual reality. Which means I've got a lot of junk to get throwing away.
  • Make sure to clarify with the kids about the ACTUAL timing of the move. Otherwise, Chase will tell his entire class goodbye on the Friday before spring break. A few panicked mothers will call to check on us.
  • A bag of clay makes Chase ever-so-happy. (Note to self: Stop stifling his creativity with your laziness).
  • Favorite thing this week: Warm chocolate chip cookies and walks with my kids.
  • Best quote this week from Josh: "I'm so tired of genital herpes." (No, he doesn't have them, but he's sick of seeing the commercials on t.v. for it).

I think that Cindy and I had the same conversation about genital herpes today. I was speculating that it must be pretty common for the number of commercials we see. And, no we don't have it either.

We always discuss the same ads, in the same terms.

I would dream for hours about a scrapbook room too! That is so exciting.

I'm excited for you to be in the home of your dreams. It's been a long time coming.

I lose hours dreaming of scrapbook rooms, too! How exciting that you will get one! Would love to see some of your work.

Hours dreaming are not lost...you're creating ideas and plans! :). Your lessons make me hungry this week! Warm chocolate chip cookies, reese's peanut butter eggs. Mmmm...

I am so glad you guys aren't battling herpes...dental problems are much better. (Take it from me...)

I started writing a post about miracle drugs and how much they help, but it really wasn't that funny of a joke...besides, my boss is coming.

P.S. Don't waste money on laughing gas; it is not that funny. Just bring an anesthesiologist to your next visit.
