~Dracen brought home some graded papers from school last week and although he did make an A on this particular paper, I saw some red teacher writing beside one of the questions about something not being appropriate. The answer to the question was "the policeman" but did my eight year old write "the policeman"? No, of course not. He wrote "the popo". Because he's all gangster like that.
~Devin aka Vanilla Ice has begun making up raps. Constantly. Because he's all gangster like that too.
~My friend, Shirley, who's been fighting a cancerous brain tumor for the past several months came by to see us last Saturday. She got a good report at her Duke appointment last week and I was amazed at how good she looked. She is one of the best people I know.
~The book fair was at Dracen's school this week. I always got excited about the book fair when I was a kid and he does too so I always give him money to buy a few books to support his school. He asked me if he could have fifteen extra dollars this year but not for himself. He wanted to give it to a friend in his class whose family couldn't afford to give him any. How could I say no to that?
~Since the black bean burgers have been such a hit the couple of times I made them, I got all fancy and made spicy bean burritos the other night. They were yum-my. You can click here for recipe.
~I'm still going strong on the pesco-vegetarian diet. It has now been almost two months since I've eaten meat and I honestly don't miss it. The only challenging part really is finding things to eat at restaurants and coming up with new things to fix at home. I have been eating quite a bit of salmon and tuna.
~We finally got our new carpet put down in the bonus room and bedroom upstairs last week and ordered a couch and chair at the furniture outlet mall yesterday but it won't be ready for four to six weeks. Why are things like that always four to six weeks? Ever notice that? And I've found that it's rarely ever exactly four to six weeks. It's almost always less or more. I prefer less.
|This is the couch though we ordered a slightly different fabric.|
~For those of you who watch the The Bachelor, can you believe the CRAZY that Courtney pulled out this week? And he went for it! He has to pick her at this point, what with the skinny dipping caught on camera and now that creepy faux wedding that he actually wrote vows for! As Kacie B (the sweet little southern girl) so "eloquently" put it as she rode off into the dark sobbing in the back of the limo, WHAT THA *BLEEP* JUST HAPPENED?!
And that was about exactly what I asked Wednesday night when I heard something that sounded like a wall coming down in the kitchen. I went in to find the fighting brothers pointing fingers at each other (because neither one of them was to blame) and three pictures on the floor that they had somehow managed to knock off the wall. Three! They're lucky nothing broke. But they still got sent to bed immediately, without passing GO or collecting their 200 dollars. At 7:35 p.m.
~I need this magnet I saw on Pinterest...
