Cereal again

Since I destroyed the meatloaf last night, that was supposed to be for dinner tonight, we had cereal again.

I am trying to plan out my meals for the week and not buy more food than we need, therefore we had nothing.  Not that the kids complained.  They would eat cereal every night of the week.  Me too, except then I really start to feel like a terrible mother.

The 5th graders, B, had their concert tonight.  I unfortunately only got to see about 5 minutes of it.  I had signed up to help with the popcorn fundraiser before and after the concert, only it turned out to be before, DURING and after the concert.  Z was kind enough to take pictures for me since EB is out of town.  They should be interesting.  

Crazy weekend ahead of us.  We have something tomorrow night and three things on Saturday.  We are going to have to divide and conquer.  We are also supposed to have trees delivered on Saturday.  I guess that will take care of what we are doing on Sunday.

I would like to fit Church in there somewhere as the only time we have been there in the last month has been to drop off the kids at Awana.

Bake at 375 for 3.5 hours


I got distracted and took the kids AWANA awards ceremony.

When we came home it was a little smelly. Not bad, but smelly.

I was trying to be efficient and cook two dinners tonight, since we won't have time tomorrow night.

Now we will be having cereal.

Thank goodness we weren't gone longer.

In case you couldn't tell, that was a meatloaf.

The nutshell

Here is the last month in a nutshell.

Trying to break up the @#$%@^ dirt so we can plant grass seed.

Trying to break up more @#$%@^ dirt so we can plant grass seed and flowers.

Trying to break up more @#$%@^, nasty, hard as concrete clay, so we can plant grass seed and flowers.

Actually planting grass seed.

Watering grass seed.

Caught up with every episode of Glee.

Watching grass seed grow, or not.

The highlight of the month was visiting with an old friend who was in town last week.

It might have made the whole month. THANKS KT.

I should have hired a lawn boy. The errand boy is sick of this job.

Other people's children

I really don't like to talk about other people's children, because Lord knows I have had to carry my daughter, with legs and arms flailing, out of the grocery store.

Sunday during church, the mother in front of us let 2 of her 3 daughters (around 5 & 7 years of age) completely misbehave. At one point the older of the two, was hitting the younger one in the head with a shoe, as well as stepping on her head. They were out of control.

There are rules when we go to church. Our children are not allowed to sit next to each other. They generally keep themselves occupied with all the bible puzzles they hand out when you come in. Occasionally we will have to tell them to be quiet or to stand up and sing, but generally they are good.

The difference is, I will carry my child out when they are misbehaving. Even to my utter embarrassment.
