Frag'n Friday

Mommy's Idea
Thank you Mrs. 4444s for giving us Fridays to unwind, decompress and unload!

*As I am writing this, 2 men are inspecting my house, attic and basement. They are doing an energy survey to try and save me some money. This is a FREE thing and you could get up to $2000 back on work you have done on your house to help you be more energy efficient. Wow! A company giving money away, what a concept!

*It has been quite a week. I put 600 miles on my car, just running the girls around. I was happy to bring my car to the shop today to put on 2 new tires so I had an excuse to stay home!

*What Scrooge is to Christmas, I am to Halloween. Bah Humbug.

*Last day to get your name in for the 1800FLOWERS GC is Sunday!

*Anyone know of any good books that I can read to get my Masters in Teenager? I have my masters in Early Childhood Ed which has allowed me to fair quite nicely in the younger years. Now, however, I am at a loss.

*K went to a great bday party last weekend for her friend turning 14. The girls had to get dressed up for a nice dinner at the  birthday girl's house and bring up to 5 items to swap with the other girls. They had a blast! She came home with 4 new shirts and a pair of shoes! This is how she looked going to the party. Those shoes were hand me downs, too. I don't think I could stand on them, never mind walk!

*Not to be outdone by her sister, B got spiffed up for church the next morning.

*Spent a few hours at the ER the other night because K was bucked off her horse. I just love hearing about when she gets bucked off a horse. NOT. She just has a very bruised finger, but no broken bones.

*Busy weekend with Halloween parties and a swim meet! Hope you have a good one :)

You can't say Bah humbug for Halloween, you have to come up with a whole new saying.

Once our party is over, I pack it all up and put it away.

I highly recommend Kids Are Worth It, by Barbara Coloroso. It's been our bible for years.

The girls are growing so quickly. Such young ladies...

hahaha, Unknown Mami--she cracked me up :)

Have a great weekend! Good luck with the energy refund :)

Your daughters are lovely young ladies!

Since my kids have outgrown Halloween, I'm with you on the humbug feelings. I just want the candy corn.
