You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth

Yeah, still on the Meatloaf kick around here... sprinkled with some Queen and AC/DC.

We all survived the sleepover!  Yay!

Pumpkin had a great bowling party first.  She bowled a 97 her first game!  All her friends had fun, too.

Fuzzy got checked out by the pediatrician, who basically said I did everything right, but added one more medicine to his nebulizer treatment in the am and pm called Pulmicort.  Fuzzy joined us at the bowling alley, and bowled his highest ever, a 151!

After the bowling only 2 of the girls came to sleepover.  That was my choice.  We have done parties with more than that, and it was awful.  Two girls is enough.  The girls at the bowling party were not aware of the two spending the night, so no feelings were hurt.

I was tired and coughing and full of sniffles, so I went to be early.  The girls were all asleep by 1am, though.

Yesterday, was a quiet day, I rested.  The kids had their bowling league, but I stayed home.  We went out to our townie restaurant as Pumpkin got a $15 off certificate for her birthday. 

We hit the video store afterward, and Hubby and I watched 'The Kingdom' last night.  I thought it was a fabulous movie.  VERY well acted, and timely.  Uplifting and heartbreaking all at the same time.

Today we went to Borders books.  Pumpkin had received gift cards and birthday money, and replenished her nightstand supply with about 12 new books.  I picked up 4 new ones, and Fuzzy picked up 2. 

Hammer still has some to read from his last trip, so he just browsed!

Now, we are home.  Hubby is finishing the laundry, we grabbed a moment to 'pay some bills', the kids are cleaning their rooms, and working on Boy Scout badges, and then we will all have dinner, lasagna, together and relax.

Fuzzy is finally well enough to return to school!  Hooray!

Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes!

be well,
Dawn

what are you reading these days?
I just finished the new James Patterson Double Cross. I left it in MS over New Year's and Stacey brought it back Mardi Gras.I was in an exciting place and so glad to get it back. Caitlin is loving the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyers. I read the first one and turned her on to it . the author builds up suspense very slowly and well.

The last time I went bowling I dropped out after the fifth frame and went tp play pinball in the arcade.  That game frustrates me!  Glad you had a nice day.

Good news on Fuzzy getting better and it sounds like the bowling party was a big hit.  Your kids bowl a hundred times better than me!  I hope you are feeling better soon too.  Love the cats, especially meat loaf kitten - that is just perfect!!!

Giggling girls asleep by 1 a.m.? What did you do? Slip them some Nyquil? I usually have to threaten the girls during sleep overs around 3 a.m. with sinister possibilities to get them to go to bed.
I'm glad everyone had fun, it sounds like a great weekend.

Pretty smart to limit the sleepovers...it is more wearing on the adults than the kids! :)

I haven't been to Borders in a few weeks...I will be going soon. :)

Love Meatloaf lolcat!!
