Monday with Max

You just have to love Maxine, don't you?

I get to smell wet dog today because...

We got our storm finally last night and awoke to a beautiful blanket of white!  About 4 inches, I would say.  Better late than never.

The kids had a delayed opening for school.  I actually kept Pumpkin home, I would rather she stay in and rest for the day and really get over being sick.

Fuzzy was very disappointed that there was school at all, but he went!  He has a test today on Greek Gods and Goddesses.

I got the call at 5 am from the school and then I volunteer to help make calls, so I then got out my phone chain list and woke up parents for the next half hour.

Hubby got up with me and checked out the weather reports and whatnot, then we both went back to bed.  It took me until almost 7 am to fall back to sleep.  I hate that.

Thankfully, Hubby got up at 8:30ish with the kids, and took Fuzzy to school and I slept in.

And, remember how Typhoid Pumpkin had spared Grandpa??  Not with this second round of plague.  My poor Dad has the whole cold/cough/sore throat thing now! 

Last night at 7 pm, Hubby decided to bake Banana Bread!  I have to say, it is yummy.  I am eating a piece right now.  My potassium came back low in my last bloodwork, so this is a perfect way to get it back up!  Bananas!  Thank you, honey!

Did you watch the Oscars last night?  I did!  I was really happy for Jennifer Hudson, as she won Supporting Actress for her role as Effie in Dreamgirls.  Hubby and I rooted for her during her American Idol season, and I am so happy that she is getting the success and recognition she was denied then!  She has an amazing vocal talent, and apparently, shecan act!

Ellen Degeneres was very funny as the host, without being overdone!  I enjoyed her!

Can you believe that this is the last week of February?  Wow, 2007 is speeding by already.

Enough of my babbling... enjoy your Monday!

be well,
Dawn

I agree, Ellen was great last night :)  This year has been so sickly for my family as well--I hope all of you are feeling better soon!  Julie

We use to have the parents do the calling , now we have a pre-recorded message that goes out to every household from the superintendent from our disctrict. much easier on the parents.
Have a great day
Ellen

Banana bread sounds great!  I hope Pumpkin is feeling much better.  I'm sure the extra day off will help her out a lot.

Jennifer Hudson is one good example that should humble ole-know-it-all Simon who thought she wouldnt do well. She was wonderful and glad that she could hit the barrier walls with an Oscar. I am watching American Idol this year. Its so addictive. Actually, everything is these days with me,lol.  ~Raven
