haha. Actually he's a middle-aged man who's going to be 35 this year! Perhaps this stemmed with my brother-in-law being engaged, maybe because I have love on the mind since his exciting news, or maybe it's the upcoming holiday, but whatever the reason, I am in love with my Danny, my eternal companion today more than ever before.
Now mush aside, I promised I would write in you more, Journal, but life ran away with my time.
I'm congested. still. Being congested since July makes me wonder if this is the new me. Will I EVER get my sense of smell back? Is this some cruel way to get me to lose weight since I can't taste things very well? Nah, it just makes me bummed and then I shovel in the junk.
Baby Girl is going to have her tongue-tie clipped. again.
I am driving the scout carpool this month. This works out fine since there's now only one other boy I need to pick up. Not that we couldn't squeeze a few more kids into our 12-passenger van. This cub scout doesn't need a booster seat like my little scout. One day, (I tell myself) my Pookie will reach the weight and height of a child that doesn't need a booster seat either. At nine years old he weighs 43 lbs. If only I could be a fat donor . . .
My neighbor, bless her heart, decided we're having a game night/pizza night on Friday. I'm not exactly sure how that will work out. Sure, we do game night with our kids with exciting turns in Star Wars Life, Princess Memory, and Chutes & Ladders (which is the devil's game and I LOATHE it). But her kids are too young to even understand Memory or CandyLand. They are 2 years old and 15 months old. So, yeah, not sure how this is going to play out . . . Come on kids! Let's see who can fall asleep first!
I quit the overly regimented public online homeschooling program we were doing with the oldest three. And now I can b-r-e-a-t-h-e. Well, not really, cuz I'm congested. See above.
I am glad to be doing my own homeschooling now. And my kids are enjoying life more now that the crazy shrew left and Mommy's back.
And just to brag, dear journal, my Hammy read his first book this week. He only needed help with two words. It was a phonics reader. But I was quite pleased. shh! He reads better than Bun. Don't tell Bun.
The twins learned how to do push-ups today. Funniest. thing. ever. Maybe I can catch them on camera. Which reminds me . . .
My desktop computer decided it wasn't going to be my friend anymore. It squeals whenever I powered it up. So, I'm typing on my laptop. In the morning, I'm going to ask Danny to tell me how to upload/download whatever my pictures from the camera to the computer. Then you can see us again.
Now I've got to finish packing up the supplies to send back to the school program mentioned above.
Happy Groundhog Day!
