Okay - Let me give you a quick construction update:
It is finished.
The painters are coming to touch up one little thing, but it is finished.
The cabinets work. The shower door is in. The cleaning lady is coming today.
I still have hair.
Most of it is still brown - thanks to hair dye.
I am doing a load of laundry to make sure that the washer and dryer work the way they should.
When I start baking, I'm going to be using every oven in this house. I can certainly bake a lot of cookies at one time - and I'll get my excersise running from oven to oven. :-)
The ice maker works - I'll be having all of my drinks with ice from over there -- thankyouverymuch.
Gram and Grandpa Bug better get their butts in gear and get down here before I take over!! BWAAHAHAHA
Ahem.. Excuse me.. I don't know what happened just then.
Maybe I'm not as sane as I thought I was...
On to the family update:
The kids had another dance at school yesterday. It seems my son is known as a "HOTTIE". I suppose there are worse things. He's on to another girl.. This one is cute and smart and her mother is a teacher at the school. (This can be good or this can be bad) I'll keep you all posted.
LLB danced with her friends and thoroughly enjoyed herself. Some older girls came over to her and told her that she was a really good dancer - I guess all these dance lessons are paying off. The compliment made her day!
I worked the dance - I served drinks and kept the chip bowls full. I did NOT sneak into the gym to see what my sweet cherubs were up to, but I did keep tabs through the principal. :-) She is a good woman!
Some kids were pretty funny when they came to get their snacks. They walked up to the table where we had three choices of drinks and 4 choices of snacks. The looked the situation over. Everything was laid out on the table in plain sight -- buffet style.
They asked, "Um.. do you have diet coke?"
My thought, "Um.. do you see diet coke?"
My answer, "Not today. We have lemonade, pink lemonade, and orange."
They asked, "Oh.. (swiping pink lemonade) Where's the pizza? I thought we were having pizza."
My answer, "Sorry, no pizza today."
They said, "GRRR! I only came for the pizza"
My thought, "It's a dance - not a pizza party"
My answer : :-)
