we cancelled our cable a while ago.
I was okay with that. we didn't have a pvr,
so I missed alot of the shows I would have watched in the evenings,
and there really isn't anything too great on in the day time.
but recently we signed up for netflix.
and I discovered this show.
I think someone I know on facebook mentioned it-
drop dead diva.
it is really cute!
if you have the means,
I highly recommend checking it out.
off to go watch an episode, or 2!

we knew it would happen sooner or later-
thankfully it was later this year!
it snowed.
just a bit.
this is how it looked on Saturday morning.
icy roads.
winter is here!
let the fun begin.

thirteen on thursday

haven't done one of these in a long time- but I also am not blogging much lately, so I have lots to share.

1. the kids are on fall break this week. no school. nice, and not nice. sleeping in is wonderful!
the fighting I could do without.

2. no snow yet! I am still in shock! but loving it!

3. I have had a tooth ache for the past couple of days- I went to the dentist yesterday and found out I needed a root canal. fun.

4. this morning I had a root canal. it was not so fun.

5. our super saturday is this saturday. I am helping plan it. it is stressful. (it is a craft day for the women at the church)

6. I am decorating the church gym for it- I am excited! hopefully it will turn out like I imagined it!

7. I am excited for the craft I am doing. I will show you it when it is done! hopefully it will be cute!

8. I applied for a job to be a lunch room sub.
I never heard anything more.
last week a lunch lady called to see if I could sub for her.
I guess I was hired!

9. I did a craft sale last weekend with my sister.
one of the better sales, but still not very good.
why do we keep doing them? I don't know.
maybe someday we will go big! sell out.
but probably not.

10. tonight Jack and I are going on a date to see the last Harry Potter movie.
yes, I have not seen it yet. I am excited nonetheless.

okay - I am drawing blanks on things to say, so we shall end it there-
ten on thursday!

melt down

this morning was a melt down of epic proportions.
sweet little miss maggie was having a hard time.
you see,
she had on a pink and brown striped shirt, and the only pants that would match were her brown ones,
that she couldn't find.
they were found later,
but before that I pulled a few of her jeans out of the dryer,
so then she didn't know which pants to wear.
I know.
serious business.
so she cried and wailed
and was screaming- "I don't know"
over and over and over.
she didn't really have tantrums as a toddler.
maybe a few, but nothing major.
I think she saved them up for her 6th year.
she did pick out the jeans she wanted,
but they didn't go with the shirt.
(I did tell her that everything goes with jeans)
so anyways, she picked out a new shirt, blew her nose,
wiped her tears and was happy when I took her over to school.

- the picture is from a previous melt down-
when she HAD to come and deliver papers with us, then half a block down decided she wanted to go home. but no one was home, so I said she had to keep coming. yowsa.
thank goodness she is mainly a very happy go lucky girl.
