After I dip my fingers into this water I will try to get into the computer to read my e-mail. What could the password be? KennyAmmon- no, Kennyisababe- no, how about Kennythehandsome, close, Kennyistheking- is it all uppercase?...
I put Kenny to bed and took a shower. When I got out, I heard Kenny downstairs. Yes, he learned the fine art of avoiding a nap. I stuck him back in the room and put a wash cloth in the door, to jam it shut, and did not remove it until 2:30.
It's going to take through next week until the siding is done, then onto painting the garage door, front door and the gutters and then the roof.
Kenny was taking a nap on Thursday and I heard him suddenly start screaming- I went into his room to find him standing in his crib staring out the window at a worker. His room is the 2nd story right bedroom, he's not used to people walking by or pounding on the wall during naptime. (When everyone is home he may be used to it.)
Mike and I went and saw the movie at 10 am. I'm not the huge Twilight fan (not like my Potter obsession) but with Ken and Mary over at my mom and dad's it was a fun date morning before Mike had to be at work.
Forgotten lunches. Mary is waiting for Hoppa to pick her up in about 3 hours.
I called my mom to find out if she has everything ready for Kenny and Mary's sleep over tonight. I told her that Jon and Meg forgot their lunches and I was going to let them go hungry (tough love)- she is now worried they may resort to lunchthievery.
The hail storm that hit the area in June, left us with insurance money to get a new roof and new siding. I was excited that we would get to change the color of the house from white to ? Today we picked the colors- Green and Cream. After the sider left, Mike pointed out that I picked the same colors of my blog. I know what I like? What comes next, a duck pond in the front yard, a purple door or a duck emblem above the front window? Oh dear, I mean oh duck.
Megan is making the lunches for all the school kids (5) and Mary Jane who insists on a lunch too. Kenny eats what Mary leaves at the table- see the pudding post.
The drama at the third grade hall is that someone has been stealing goodies out of lunch boxes, Kelly's lunch has been hit twice. So she put a note in her lunch bag alerting the thief that she only has vegetables in her lunch. This seemed to stop the perp today (and the uncooked Brussels sprouts in a Ziploc bag readily waiting the thief to take mistakenly.)
Mary drank a half filling and has a super full bladder. Mary's glass and Daddy's glass
As we didn't run the dishwasher last night, or load it for that matter, we didn't have any glasses to drink orange juice with at lunch. Mike found a jelly sized Mason jar and filled it with OJ. Mary watched and came out of the kitchen with a quart sized Kerr jar and filled it more than half full.
Chris still has a house to unpack. Moving is so tiring. Grace finds that it's easier to clean the shower with the water on. (It's just cold when you go out to the car.)
Patrick combines his peanut butter jelly sandwiches with jelly in the middle.
Jonathan, Patrick and I helped my brother Chris clean his old apartment today ( I hope he gets his whole deposit back). He and his girls moved to a bigger apartment. We had a crew of 6 (half of them under the age of 10. It took us 2 1/2 hours- not bad. Megan stayed home to watch the little kids- I thought they would get in the way more than they would help. Kenny would have wanted to help Grace clean the shower.
Ground sausage, onion, celery, bell pepper on a baked delicata squash . (All for 9 points, oh yeah that's info for the other blog). The recipe called for 1/3 cup of sour cream but that would be too good. I'm getting tired of eating baked chicken so here's something different. Yes, this was lunch and the Kenny and Mary ate leftover goulash- but Kenny did sit on Mike's lap and try some bites. The other children wouldn't have tried the squash- so why waste such a yummy treat?
