so, so tired









So why am I still awake? Because a looong time ago ( I think it was Sunday) I decided that I would not go to bed with my kitchen a mess. Yep and I have done really well. OK, last night, I took Nyquil and fell asleep after about 10 seconds but...Currently my dishwasher is going and if I can stay up until it is done, and then reload, I can go to bed with my goal accomplished. The hard part is staying awake because we have a seriously long cycle on our dishwasher. I know, I know, I could do them by hand, but why do that when I can mess around on the computer instead. I mean seriously people. So what do I have to blog about? Hmmm yeah not much. Let's see...

* We spent almost a day and a half without cable/phone/internet. I seriously went through internet withdrawl. I think I may be addicted. Luckily the cable went back on in time for me to watch the season finale of the Closer.

** I went to a baby shower last night. And as we were sitting around gabbing, the power went out. And we just kept talking like nothing happened. There is something about sitting around gabbing with girl friends that is just good for the soul. I left "early" and got home a little after 9. Ben was like, "can you ever come home at a decent time?" Huh, I thought I did!

** I still have a head cold. The kids are very sniffly and whiney also. Good times at the Turner house.

**When I went to pick Ivan up on that awful school morning, he had had a great day! His teacher got him involved and she said, " he went back to being our sweet Ivan". I guess I bring out the best in him. Today however, he was very grumpy and refused to sing. One of the boys said, "come on Ivan, sing!" And he yelled, "No JT, I not sing!!" So at least he is telling us what he wants.

** We had the kids open house tonight. They are so cute about showing us EVERYTHING in their classrooms. I was happy to meet the two teachers that I didn't know. All the kids got very good reports. So all is good on that front.

**Trying hard to get the house decorated for fall/Halloween. Hard to do when it is a thousand degrees outside and palm trees swaying in the breeze. So Harmony looks at the stuff I have been doing and says, "Oh so you are trying to be creative this year?" Ouch.

** I am still tired,and the dishwasher is not done, and I have already seen this Ace of Cakes. Hmmm to go to bed or not?

I was pretty bummed that Ace of Cakes was a repeat too! How funny! We are just so much alike...I hate washing dishes by hand too! I hope you are feeling better soon!

I hope you went to bed!! By the way tell BEn 9pm is a very decent hour. I know what you mean about decorating for fall, it doesn't feel like it to me yet so I haven't done it, I don't want my neighbors to think I am crazy. Let me know how it goes for you and maybe I will too!!

I don't even know what Ace of Cakes is. Maybe it is a local thing for you. Good that Ivan had at least one good day on his first week. So did you go to bed. I would have. I always think I should have the kitchen clean so I would be ahead for the next day and it rarely gets done.

I'm impressed that you'd stay up to wait for your dishwasher! By the way, what the heck is Ace of Cakes???

OK, you guys have never heard of Ace of Cakes? You must not watch Food Network very much! It is a reality show about a cake maker named Duff. They make extreme cakes. Like they did a huge cake of Hogwarts for a premier, they did a cake for the MilkBone 100th anniversary. It is cool, you guys are missing out!
