This & That
Haven't really had anything to blog about lately so that's why I've been MIA. This week has been just the usual mom stuff. Run kids all over and all that boring stuff. Last night Greg and Emily went to the football game so it was just Steve, Mark and I. We went out to Chili's for dinner and I realized that in a couple of years, this will be what's it's like. In less than 4 years, our family will be a "family of 3" when we go out to dinner. Boy, the bill sure was nice. How weird is that? I cannot even imagine what having only one kid home all the time will be like.
Greg and Emily both got their Homecoming tickets this week. Everyone goes regardless if they have a date or not. In my day, you only went if you had a date. I'm excited to go dress shopping with Em and see Greg all "dapper". This year it's at MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry). Liz went all four years and this is Greg's first. He never had any desire to go and his friends pretty much had to convince him this year. Finally, some pictures to add to his scrapbook besides baseball.
Mark finally lost his two front teeth. The pictures are still on my camera and I will try to upload them this weekend. He looks so cute. Mark is a pretty small kid and still has that "baby" look to him. I mean his is small compared to other kids his age. But, now that he is missing his teeth, he's looks more like a "little boy" and is slowly losing that baby look. Maybe it's just me that notices.
Liz isn't coming home this weekend. There's a football game so she is going to that. Plus, moving your car on a football game weekend is a bad idea. No guarantee there will be parking. She has a few tests to study for anyway. Go Gators!!!!!
We survived Parent Teacher Conferences also this week. No major surprises. Everyone is doing well. I love Mark's teacher this year. I loved last years too and I was hoping this year's teacher would be just as good. Yep she is. We are going to do some more testing with them but he is really trying. Next Monday is our "big" meeting with the administrators and all the specialist where we sit around and discuss what we are all going to do to help him. We had this meeting last year and I kid you not, I was so sick to my stomach. I had a headache for three days. Now that I've been through it, it's not too bad. The only reason we are doing it again is because they have a new school psychologist. Hopefully, we won't have to do this again for awhile.
Greg has a double header baseball game today. His first game is @ 10 and his second one is @ 1. They were away games. I decided to spend my day here at home. Lots on my "to do" list. Which includes:
laundry
cleaning
get out Halloween/Fall Decorations
Paint plant stand on porch
BJ's (we need some food in this house)
That being said, it's time for me to log off here and get started. I actually slept in today so I got a late start.
Have a wonderful Saturday!
PS. SORRY ABOUT THE SPACING. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY BLOGGER WON'T PUT SPACES BETWEEN THE PARAGRAPHS. I HAVE GONE BACK THREE TIMES AND IT SHOWS IN THE DRAFT THAT THERE IS SPACING BETWEEN THE PARAGRAPHS. ANY ONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHY THIS IS HAPPENING?

Hope you got to cross things off of your list.

With regards to the paragraph spacing, I'm having a similar problem with Typepad and my sentence spacing. I can't seem to get it fixed.

I am guessing you are in a depressed state like I was over the Ohio St. Buckeyes going down to USC. Now you have joined us as well as USC and Georgia. Having gotten beaten first, I feel so much better now. Missery loves company. Heidi In Ohio
