Yesterday and today were Lauryn’s End of the Year Celebration programs for school. I can’t believe my big girl has completed her first year of preschool! I love seeing her stand up with all her classmates, singing her little heart out and dancing along with the songs. At the beginning of the program, they had a DVD with tons of pictures they’d taken of all the kids during the year. There were two college kids (who used to attend Oakwood preschool ) in the back of the room, putting on the show and music. I think they were using Nady Systems and they did a great job. We were able to purchase (for a small donation) a DVD and I love that we’ll always be able to look back at that and see Lauryn’s first year of preschool.
Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim’s post. (It’s our way of saying “Thanks!”) We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme’s best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let’s go!!!
Today we ripped off as a blogger named Patrice, from her blog His Dark Beauty She says she got it from Melissa at You Must Be True To Your Heart. Tracing back the thefts of those that we steal from could take a while. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!
Sunday Stealing: the fairy tale meme
Snow White: Do you consider yourself pretty? Name the part of your body you think is the most beautiful!
I think occasionally I can pull off cute. I’d have to say my eyes. They reflect colors and sometimes look deep blue or
Cinderella: What is your shoe size?
Sleeping Beauty: How many hours do you sleep each night?
Not many! My 11 month old son still wakes 1-3 times a night:(
Little Red Riding Hood: What is your favorite food?
I can never pick just one food! I love almost all Mexican and Italian dishes
The Frog Prince: What do you find disgusting?
Dog doo! I can clean up any of the ”messes” the kids make but when it comes to our dog, whom I love dearly, I just can’t do it….that’s my husbands department.
Jack and the Beanstalk: What plants are in your room?
Puss in Boots: Do you have a pet? Do you want one?
We have a 10 year old dog, Cloz’r, and a 17 year old cat, Ahb Bu Dah Be.
Rumpelstiltskin: What is the meaning of your url?
It’s kind of a joke. People say I’m like “Suzy Homemaker” but I don’t think I am, so Not Suzy Homemaker it is
The Little Mermaid: Can you sing?
I think I can….others might not agree
Pinocchio: What is your greatest wish?
For my kids to grow up happy, healthy and successful in whatever they choose to do.
Peter Pan: What is your (mental) age?
I will forever be 26!
The Star Money: What is your most prized possession?
I never used to mind painting. A room here or there was not a problem at all. I actually liked it. We’ve painted so many rooms now, in different houses, and I’m not a fan anymore. There is so much painting that needs to be done in this house. Lauryn’s room, our room, the dining room, the bathroom, eventually the half bath and now I’m thinking the basement too. When we first moved in, I thought the basement was fine but someday, I’d like to brighten it up. It’s a great space but the previous owners used a pretty dark color and I think that if we went with something lighter, it would love even bigger down there. I’ve been looking at different ways to update the fireplace down there too. If you go to modern fireplaces here, you can find a lot of different options. Anyway, I know the colors I want to do for every room but our bedroom. I think I might go neutral there so I can change up the bedding when I want to. I haven’t decided though. It’s all a lot of work that we can hopefully get done this spring/summer.
Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!
2) Could your vehicle use a trip to the car wash this weekend?
5) In addition to being John Travolta’s birthplace, Englewood, New Jersey, played a significant role in telecommunications history. In 1951, Englewood’s mayor made the first-ever direct dial long-distance call in the United States. Now it’s your turn. Tell us something about your birthplace.
6) Travolta is an excellent dancer. How are you on the dance floor?
I absolutely love the conversations I have with my friend, Kathy. It’s starts off normal with “So what’s new with you?” and snowballs into everything from our favorite coffee creamer and the death penalty to a fayetteville nc business lawyer. I never know where our conversations will go and that makes them so much fun. We’ve been friends for about 16 years and our conversations never get old…just more fun!
1. I use lotion constantly.
2. Apollo 13 is one of my favorite movies.
3. It’s time for these kids to go to bed!
4. Bed time now! (Mama needs a break!)
5. I said all this working out is making my butt look better, and then he said yeah it is. LOL
6. A Lindor truffle is what I’m craving right now!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to getting to bed at a decent time, tomorrow my plans include possibly cleaning out the raised flower bed out front and getting new flowers in it and Sunday, I want to chill with my family!
Lauryn has quite a few bath now and I’ve noticed some of them get moldy pretty easily. I’ve scrubbed them and I’ve sanitized them in the dishwasher but it’s discourage how quickly it shows up on some things. I’ve thrown out quite a few things, like the sprayer toys that you can’t get all of the water out, but I wish there was some type of product that would keep them from getting yucky altogether. I’ve seen mold removal products but haven’t come across anything to prevent it. Even drying every thing off doesn’t work because some toys have crevices I can’t get to. It’s frustrating because she loves her bath toys and it’s not practical to throw everything out and keep buying new all of time.
Tonight we’re going to go to B.C. Pizza for dinner. They’re doing an all day benefit to help a boy in Lauryn’s class. He and his family have been through so much this year. At the beginning of the year, their sweet boy was losing strength. They found out he has Guillian Barre Syndrome. He has been out of school and in the hospital since, rarely getting to go home. So if you want to do something good today, order some pizza! 10% of all sales (lunch buffet, dine-in, delivery, take-out), will go to his family. There will also be a bake sale to help raise money and there is a donation jar sitting on the counter of the restaurant. I don’t know the family personally, but imagine your four year old child going through something like this. It’s breaks your heart. This is just one small way of helping out. And, you can do it and not have to cook tonight! It’s a win/win!
I’m pretty sure my kids have conspired to keep me worn out by not letting me sleep. Perhaps they’ve come to the conclusion that if I’m constantly tired, I won’t have the energy to tell them “no” on things. Maybe I’m wrong but Sunday night, Lucas got up around 1 am, went back to sleep, got back up at 4:30 am and when he went back to sleep again, I was wide awake. I finally started dozing off a little before 6 am and Lucas woke back up. By 10:30 last night, I was whooped so I went to bed. I woke up around midnight with an upset stomach, then Lucas woke up a little over an hour later. Lauryn woke up around 3:30 and I went and laid in her bed until she got back to sleep. Lucas woke up again around 4:30, I nursed him and got him back to sleep and then Lauryn got up and said she was wide awake and didn’t want to stay in her room any more. She and I went out into the living room and just a few minutes later, Lucas woke up again. You’d think all this getting up in the night would affect them, but no, they both have tons of energy during the day. That’s why I think they’re out to get me
I’ve been thinking we might want to look into home hepa filters. I’m not sure but I think Lauryn and I might both be bothered by some things in the air. Neither of us have had issues with allergies before but recently, she’s had major sneezing spells and I’ve had itchy and watery eyes. It seems to happen quite a bit when we’re at home and I wonder if the little field and woods in the back yard might have something to do with it. It’s something I’m going to check into anyway.
