Linking with Kathryn once again for what I imaging will be the last time this week. Tomorrow is the day we've been planning for...cruise!! Lots of packing and preparing to do today. In the meantime here's a short review of yesterday and a preview of today.
Hmmm, yesterday, what was yesterday? Mike and Madi both had dentist appointments. I did a little History with Madi, a little reading about northern Europe with Jake. There was a point for a little while when the whole family was in the kitchen (actually that happened for a little while in the evening too). Late morning Madi and I went to pay her traffic ticket. Jonathan took Jake to Target. Mike was at a meeting. Madi and I picked up pizza for lunch, the boys brought home soda and we had a little party. The Duggars joined us on the TV. Then Madi did math, Jake did a little more school work, Jonathan talked a lot, and before we knew it it was time for Madi to go to work and Jake to go to band. I sat in the car line during band listening to the Busted Halo show. Then took Jake right to theatre. While he was at theatre I went to the Verizon store and got my upgrade. My 2 year old iphone 4 was on it's last legs. Now I have a fancy 5S yay! This week in review with new phones and pedicures is not at all typical of a normal week, it just happened that a week in my life also fell on the week before the cruise. Mike and I were scheduled to house manage for the current main stage show at the theatre at 6:30. The show is A Good Old Fashioned Redneck Country Christmas. I convinced Madi to dress like an usher and help us out. Good thing because as of the time of the house opening I only had two ushers and one of them was brand new. I was supposed to have 6 or 7. I pulled Jake from where he was sulking upstairs because he really didn't want to be there, and he sat people in his athletic pants and Aeropostale tshirt. Finally three more ushers showed up 35 minutes late. I quickly put them right to work. Jonathan had been working on tech stuff there since about 4, and he and Jake decided to just go home and not stay for the show. The show was pretty cute and touching. It is a nice short show (my favorite kind of nonmusical) and we were all home (and back in the kitchen) before 10:00. Then I got in bed and watched the end of Forrest Gump. The end.
Today we are packing, and cleaning, and I personally have nowhere that I have to be.
