Songs In My Head

Jace and I are watching NOGGIN tonight it's a channel that for pre-schoolers, and now I have songs from Wonder Pets, Dora, Backyardigans and Blues Clues in my head. Since he spends the night with me on friday nights and its getting dark earlier we put on our pajamas and have a snack and watch and sing along, I can't carry a tune but he doesn't seem to care. My brother and sister-in-law have had H1N1 flu this week and have they are starting to feel better after rounds of Tamiflu and antibiotics thank goodness. Our community has it's local fall fest tomorrow at the park they always have arts and crafts, food and entertainment so that should be fun....Barb

I need some Sunshine!

After two weeks of rain, rain and more rain I need some sunshine. The rain did stop during my friend's brother's funeral yesterday, the family seems to be doing well since he had suffered so much the past few months. My little man Jace is spending the night with me so since the weather is yucky I see cartoons and playing with transformers in my future tonight. I 'm trying to decide what I want for dinner you know when your hungry but nothing sounds good? I hope you all have a wonderful week-end....Barb

This week has flown by one of my best friends brother died and the funeral is in the morning,he had cancer and suffered so much their emotions are all over the place and everyones so tired.Lauren's staying with us a few weeks until her new apartments ready and with all her stuff and two small black kitties it's been kinda crazy because my cats are jealous but they are doing pretty well.It has been raining for days with no end in sight and flash flood warnings out,I need some sunshine. We are visiting a new church sunday we feel we need to be somewhere that offers more kid stuff for Jace since our church now is pretty small and doesn't have many kids his age so he can be more involved.Please remember my friend Karla and her family in your prayers as they are dealing with their grief and help me to be the friend she needs,have a wonderful day tomorrow....Barb

Happy Labor Day

I have had a restful weekend, which has been nice for a change. Yesterday I went and saw Julie & Julia it's a very cute movie if you haven't seen it. We went out for a late breakfast one morning and I also went and had a pedicure. Today I'm doing some laundry and a few chores around the house because my hubby is working. We normally cookout on Labor day but since hubby's working and he worked last night I'm sure he will be tired so I made chicken and dumplings and may make some banana bread today. The girls went ahead and made other plans because of his work schedule. I hope you all have a relaxing and fun Labor day....Barb
