Oh, To Be A Kid Again!

On my way to work this morning, I stopped off at the local 24hr Super Walmart and picked up the bike my daughter wants for her bday. I know people have their views on Walmart, but I love that this one is 24hrs and the inventory clerk that helped me put the bike together for me (because I neglected to check if they had it there beforehand) in 20 min! Tried to tip him but he wouldn’t take it. Against the rules, blah blah.

Anyway, as I was checking out the toy shelves at 6:15am, I came across this new game. I LOVED Twister as a kid and this looks like so much fun! Check out the video here. I think I have to have it! I mean, I think my DAUGHTER has to have it.

Nothing like starting off your Friday as the toy store. Oh, the memories… What do you all have planned for the weekend? I am actually staying home to catch-up on stuff. My son has a book report due where he needs to re-enact all the key plot points and take pictures for a special display board. He read a Sherlock Holmes novel, Fall of the Amazing Zalindas, so all the pics have to do with tightrope walking, circus stuff and I get to dress up like a gypsy. We started taking the pics yesterday. Hope to finish the rest this weekend.

We are also running lines and practicing songs for The Music Man. Auditions are Wednesday. Crossing my fingers for him.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

The Week Ahead – September 1-7, 2008

I cannot believe that we are in September now. Even though this weekend has been a warm one, I do sense a little bit of change in the quality of light. I feel a tinge of Fall. Here’s what going on this week:

Monday, September 1, 2008 – It’s Labor Day! We spent the day at a friends’ house. We swam, we ate, we swam some more. The kids are tired and so am I.

Tuesday, September 2, 2008 – Two meetings to go to. Don’t tell anyone but I am not a fan of meetings. Especially after a nice, long weekend. Reading some more of The Meaning of Night tonight. That is, if the kids get their homework done early enough.

Wednesday, September 3, 2008 – Working on an art project tonight. I do stamping on the side..for fun and I have been meaning to create these framed art pieces for my guest bathroom. I have all the stuff and I know what I am going to do so I plan to do it tonight. The colors are chocolate brown and tiffany blue and will be framed in white frames.

Thursday, September 4, 2008 – My book group meets tonight to discuss Mister Pip. It’s one of my picks so I am interested to see what everyone thinks.

Friday, September 5, 2008 – HaPpY BiRtHdAy to me! I am 40 years old today and taking the day off! My husband planned a surprise weekend trip. I have absolutely no idea what is in store for me. I do know it’s a family trip as I want to the celebrate with the kids too. I will post an update later and hopefully some pics too. What book should I pack? I could take The Meaning of Night as I know I won’t be done with it, or I could take Wife of the North. What do you think?

The Weekend – My birthday celebration continued. I will be back to reality by dinnertime on Sunday.
