Well, I enjoyed my day off, and yes, I'm going to pay for it today. So. Much. To. Do. But my desk is nice and shiny! I cleaned it off yesterday while I sat and watched...
I have watched this a few times, just snippets here and there, but yesterday, I watched all three episodes of this season and I'm hooked! I am loving this music, and not just because of the BYU acapella group that is on (even though I think they are the funnest to watch). No, all of the groups are fantastic, and I don't know how the judges can stand to send anyone home! Seriously, some great talent in there. Watch it!
I made Apple Crisp last night. There were a few apples sitting around that were starting to go soft, so that makes it the day to make apple crisp. So as I'm cutting up the apples, it occurs to me, that I should probably only make a half a batch. Oh my. We have hit that stage, and I knew we had hit that stage, and yet, there I was, having a little mini meltdown about the fact that I'm really, seriously, on the tail end of raising my own family. In two years, it will be Terry, Tess, and me. How crazy is that? I won't know any high school drama, I won't need to go to any high school games, I won't have any emotional upheavals that I need to soothe over, for awhile anyway. Oh my. Time goes so quickly. Think about that, all you young mothers out there. It goes by So. Quickly.
Zoey and I are becoming fast buddies. I think you will understand when I say, Drama is best prevented when you just don't go around it. That means that I'm keeping Zoey close to me, so that we can avoid certain situations. It's a long process, and to tell the truth, it makes me a little tired. With the older two girls, they pretty much had each other, but poor Zoey doesn't really have that opportunity. Tessa is really not adept at helping out much in this area. So here we are. Buddies.
It rained yesterday, and I loved it (sorry all you farmers out there!). It was nice to have that cleansing feeling, because it rained hard here and for a long time. It even kept us from running! We have been so diligent lately in our running! I have pounds to lose for a wedding, and Christina has pounds to lose for something, I don't know what. She looks great to me, but she says she has pounds to lose. So we are sticking with the running, and have been working really hard at making it all five days of the school week. Yea for us!
