Holy cow Jan! Thats a biggie. Glad he's OK. BT, you've had a week haven't you? Hope today brings you sunshine and sushi.

OK, my early friday five.

1. I'm up and have 3 cups of coffee and a pancake on board. Feeling fine and ready to rock.

2. My kids are home from school today and we are planning to do something fun together once we are all conscious enough to enjoy it. (Gotta love preteens!)

3. I don't work today! WOOHOO! I'm worn right out this week. Between fighting this stupid virus and the physical demands at work this week, stick a fork in me, I'm done.

4. My thighs are screaming. I made the kids at work do a bunch of lunges across the gym and back a few times (I did it with them), and then I made them do the goddess pose for a while. OW!

5. I have a ton of stuff to do both on the computer and on the phone, but decided to come and mess around for a while before getting down to work. LOL. Going to see whats posted. Ciao!

Hey lulu, don't you just LOVE when your hubby goes all medieval on someone's heinie?

1. The sun is shining brightly and the sky is the most awesome blue.
2. Got all my "chores" done sooner than I'd anticipated.
3. All the ingredients for tonight's dinner are prechopped/diced and set mise en place, so I can rock and roll when the time comes.
4. We'll be talking with Buck's mother on the phone tonight. Always a treat.
5. Will be able to finish two columns I've been working on, which means I'll have a few extra ones in the "bank" so to speak.

1. The littlest ChefA is napping right now.
2. The other ChefA (both my kids' names start with 'A') is being good and not getting into too much trouble (as can be her norm).
3. I love this forum ~ it's a place I can talk to GROWNUPS and get good recipes and cooking/baking ideas and just talk about non-baby stuff.
4. I'm catching up on working on my recipe book.
5. It's a nice day outside and I'm not clueless on dinner, so, we can go outside later.

1) payday wasn't as lean as I was expecting (a short previous two weeks in the hours dept.)
2) got an "attaboy" from some computer geeks at work whose document I edited without knowing a thing about what they were writing about
3) get to work next week with some of the coolest people in the world (bomb kickers, aka UXO specialists)
4) dogs haven't thrown up/had an accident on the rug in a week
5) some other kid's mom is driving them all home tonight from the regular Friday night teen outing

Ahhh...I remember those days. I loved to be in an adult situation where I didn't discuss Kool-Aid and oatmeal cookies and have to tell someone to "eat your peas, they're num num."

It's so nice to carry on a conversation with words that contain more than one syllable.

However, mraa, even though those days can be a bit trying at times, they'll be gone before you know it. Cherish them, too. I'm still trying to figure out how my "baby" can be 33-years-old.

I do cherish every moment I can. In fact, I love my kids to death; they just have their trying times, but they're so cute it's hard to keep from laughing when they're in trouble.
