Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
Randomness at its finest. Happy Monday!

1. Vacations are something I've discovered I need often. For my sanity. Last week away was amazing. Being able to travel and work is a gift. Who wouldn't want to hang out with this crew?!?

2. My kids are funny. My live in comic relief in an otherwise crazy busy life. They get their funny from their father. See below.

3. I remembered quickly one of my biggest peeves with public schools. The 41 million fund raisers the kids come home with. SERIOUSLY?!?!? There is one thing I buy. Cookie Dough. That is all. In the two years my kids weren't in public school this hasn't changed. I don't want magazines, Entertainment books, wrapping paper, cards, or anything else.

4. Yes I'm that bad parent that tells her kids they don't have to sell anything if they don't want to. I admit it.

5. I took my daughter shopping again last weekend......she likes the same stores I do. This was another reminder that either a. I need new stores or b. she needs to stop growing up. I'll take the latter.

6. Zahra is a fashionista. She's got her own style and a mind of her own. While talking on skype today with a co-worker Zahra piped in and said to him "hey yer cute"! Good thing he has five girls himself. Pretty sure it made his day.

7. Nausea seems to be hitting our house this week, not sure what from. I had it, Skyler had it, David woke up with it and Olivia's complaining of it now too. I've prayed for no puking and pulled out the clorox wipes.

8. This afternoon my daughter brought home what I'll call the "411" from school. Most things are common sense. You know don't run over the kid in the cross walk, don't block peoples cars, be nice and mind your manners sort of things. These sorts of things always make me laugh because we are adults but hey I guess they've had less then stellar experiences making this necessary. As I was skimming something caught my eye. All prescriptions must be taken in the nurses office. (even chapstick) Yes you read that right, EVEN chapstick. It gets better. Said chapstick may only be administered after an orange Physician form has been filled out. That's correct folks. Hide the chapstick, soon it'll be under prescription only!

9. I love what I do. I love my clients. This Ethiopian Air sale has kicked my hiney! I'm thrilled that so many of you were able to take advantage of this deal!
