don't like That Flu (not sayin' the name because ... well, it's just gross). Three schools around here are closed. Students are quite happy. I think it's disturbing. Frustrating, to say the least. The mood of the nation is definitely affected when people are scared.
know today is May Day. Some things I want to accomplish in May include several craft projects for birthdays and holidays; a cook-out for a neighbor who is moving; long walks as the weather gets better (now that's being optimistic, but the rain Gods just HAVE to be getting tired soon); switch out my winter/summer closet; get a tan and lose 20 pounds (now that too is being optimistic, but I'm just sayin ...).
need to renew my Driver's License this year: Note to self, prepare for a good picture. Do whatever it takes, even if it leaves me unable to stand upright or reach for a bag of Cheetos.
want to assign certain ring tones on my cell phone: I've been thinking about it for awhile (yes, it occupies space in my mind). For Kevin's calls -- Celine Dion, I'm your woman and you are my maaan. For calls from Brandt/Keaton -- That's Allright Mamma. Calls from Andrea -- Princess Leia's Theme.
have no photo's for this blog entry. But if I had been a grandma who rocks, I would have had my camera at Rhegan's soccer game the other day! You remember don't ya, it was that soccer game where she picked dandylions a lot more than she kicked the soccer ball? This is the same game where Rhegan came to sit next to me during a break, and asked for a piece of gum. Yes, I said! I'll give it to you right after the game is over. But she informed me that now would be better. "No, that's against the Soccer Rules, it's against Rule #24!" The biggest blue eyes looked at me in wonderment and said "How did you KNOW that?!"
finished my bible study and Joyce Meyer's book, Battlefield of the Mind. It was s splendid few months of study, growing, sharing, and making new friends. Even one of the older ladies said that she has been coming to the bible studies for years, and this was the best one ever!
am going to lead the next bible study entitled "Summer Scripture Challenge" and I will incorporate scrapbooking into memorizing bible verses. Prayers welcome!
am SO over this rain. I would sweep the porch or something, but ... why? Besides, when I finished I would collapse in a heap on the couch and in the words of Fred Sanford say "This is the big one."
miss my sons. Very very much. Kevin and I have decided to make the annual jaunt to DC for Memorial Day Weekend, so we will bombard Brandt with our friends and Harleys. Keaton has decided to start work on his Masters, in between tutoring and coaching soccer this summer.
have been wondering why Pier One won't send me a new dishtowel after I filled out their stinkin' form online? I mean, is it some kind of hooey that just because I'm a 50ish mom and totally uncool in their eyes?
am not afraid of any kind of That Flu (not sayin' the name because, well, it's just gross). If anything is going to kill me in the next thirty days, my money is on the Obama administration and not some lame pig virus. I'm just sayin ....
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
