Not helping my mood

The RAYS that is. Good grief boys, what the heck? Give an old lady a heart attack. I'm not sure I can watch the next game. They seem to play better when I don't anyway.

Had a nice evening with the kids. Had another opportunity to remind my DS why it is important to go to college. No offense to people that work at a fast food place, I did for many years when I was young. The problem is when it is apparent that you work there because it's the best you can do. Seriously, when it takes you 10 minutes to figure that 5 items at $5 each is $25 plus tax and not $31 plus tax....I don't hold hope for a manager position for you any time soon.

Speaking of school and knowledge, the boy pulled out a trivia bit of information about JOHN Hancock last night that was impressive. Well, impressive to us. Guess you had to be there. Anyway....His sister admitted that she didn't know it. I think she did at one time but had forgotten with all the other stuff she's had to cram into her head. (it has to do with why he signed his name so large. Anyone??)

No school today for the boy. Left them sleeping this morning. Darn work. There are only three of us in my group today and two of them are leaving me by 10am. Poop. I have a follow up on my Basal Cell this afternoon so I'll be gone by 2:30 myself.

What are your plans for the weekend? Have a yard sale tomorrow and the boy has a Karate Slumber Party. Hoping to get some scrapping done or at least finish the 3rd Twilight book. DD and I watched the trailers and discussed the cast selections last night. Not crazy about a couple of them. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Great news from Georgia about school and growth. Still waiting and praying about Tricia. If you didn't get a chance to catch up please go to her link on the left.

I'll leave you with a coupon from Walgreens for $5 off $25. Enjoy.

Til later..........

I'm almost through with the third "Twilight" book, too. Jenn's in the fourth one. We're looking forward to the movie, but movies seldom do justice to books, IMO, so I'm afraid I will be disappointed.

How was my brudder's bd yesterday? Sorry I didn't send a card...I very seldom ever leave the house these days. :-( Hope he had a good day!

John Hancock signd his name so big as a way of saying 'here I am come get me' to the british - sorta rebelling. It was also said that he did it so that the King would be able to see it without putting on his glasses. Who knows... but supposingly by him doing that it gave the other people signing the DOI the courage to sign as well. So... am I completely wrong? lol
