Oh my, Made! I do hope she is okay! I haven't read the rest of the posts from yesterday yet - so I'll see if you've given an update. My prayers are with her!

My son called last night and left a message that he and Melissa had arrived safely in Davidsonville, Maryland. I can hardly believe how quickly they got there. Joshua said they averaged 800 miles a day!!! Well, I need to get a shower and put on my pjs and totally relax. Tomorrow is root canal day!!!
Welcome home, Seawaters! There really is just no place like home, eh!

I hope the rain holds off for you, ChristmasStar! So far so good. Its a little cloudy right now - but yesterday turned out to be a nice surprise. They were originally calling for rain all day long - and when I looked outside around 1pm...I saw the sun!

I'm trying to get Travis into HP but he seems to be as uninterested as ever (although he did ask some questions once the movie was over, which was how I ended up getting into the franchise myself). I'm hoping to watch the first installment of the 7th movie before the second half comes out...my parents want me to go with them to see it, but I'm hoping to maybe find some people to go to the midnight premiere (still working on the parents!).
I cannot wait to see the final Harry Potter movie! I think it comes out in July?

I know that some of the answers will be that I'm a good mother yada yada yada but at this point in time, I prefer to think of myself as an idiot!!!!!!

Catch you all later - after I'm back AND dried out AND maybe slept some more AND eaten (you get the general idea....!!)
It doesn't sound much like a day off to me. Perhaps a nap and/or a good Christmas movie later on???

This weeks christmas activity is to update my address book as I missed a few friends outlast year due to switching over books and I don't really want to so that again.

The children finish school on Friday for a weeks holiday, then go back for 6 weeks before the 'big' holidays. I cant believe how quick the days/weeks/months are speeding by! Once September hits and the children go back to school I can officially begin to get excited as the shops start to display their christmas wares.

Right off to catch up on all the posts I missed over the weekend.
Have a great day!

Naomi
WOW! Sounds like you've had a busy weekend! We (in Canada) have a holiday today (Victoria Day) - so I'm off, but will have to put in some time working today anyway.

I agree...you really know its getting close once September comes around and the children head back to school!

Have a super day!
