Here I go Again!


My hubby and the boys are gone again! 

They left last night at 5pm for the Weeboree, which is for the Weebelo Scouts to come for the weekend and learn about moving on to become Boy Scouts!   Big doin's in the scout world, believe me!

Pumpkin had her Girl Scout SleepOver last night, in the basement of a town church.  She had a blast!  They have a DJ, pizza at 9pm, games, and movies and very little sleep!  LOL

Yes, that means that last night, I was alone!!!  It was glorious!

I am never/rarely completely alone!  So, I rented the movie, 'Running with Scissors' and watched it.  I read all of Augusten Burroughs books, so it was great to see the movie. 

I went to bed early, it was such a long, stressful week, I really needed that. 

And, I slept really, really late!!!  Pumpkin finally made me get up at 1:30pm!   Poor grandpa, he kept her busy by having her do food shopping and errands with him; until he could take no more!  LOL

As I caught up on emails, Pumpkin painted with her new paint tubes with the brushes attached.  Oh my... lots of fun, and thankfully, the mess was fairly contained!

Tonight, we are going out to dinner with Grandma and Grandpa to our favorite town restaurant!  Charlie, one of our two fave servers, will be so happy to be tortured by us for two hours!  LOL

Tonight, Pumpkin and I are going to watch 'Dreamgirls' on DVD!  I couldn't believe that it was already out!  I can't wait to see it...  Pumpkin really wants to see all the singing.  It is PG-13, I hope it isn'ttoo 'adult'.  Thankfully, a whole bunch still goes sailing over her head!


Without getting very specific, I have to say thank you to all of you.  My J-Land friends have been a huge help this week, and I felt all your love and kindness.  And, obviously, all the prayers, stirrings, and positive thoughts have worked!

be well,

ps... I am so sorry I missed 'Thankful Thursday'.... I will make up for it this week!

Dawn, enjoy the peace and quiet.  Glad you got some rest.  I saw that Dreamgirls was out already.  I bet you two girls are going to love it and, yep, anything off color will go straight over your Pumpkin's head.  It always did with mine.  Have fun eating out.  HUGS  CHris

I personally think pg13 movies are to adult !! I hope your's wasnt  . I dont get how they rate these movies when it comes to kids.
Hope  you had a nice dinner out.

I used to love being a Girl Scout Leader. All my girls are too big to play with me now. All I have left is my dog Jack to go to the woods and the beach with me.
Sounds like a good time was had by all this weekend at your house. I read the book "Running with Scissors" and loved it. Was the movie as good?
