Oh, the sweet justice of Karma! Good-bye Ari and Staella. They just started out mean, didn't they? And after the way he was yelling at that donkey about "cutting you up and eating you if you make us lose this race", well, all I have to say is bon-appetite. So after getting a look at the teams, who are you rooting for? We like Azaria and Hendekea (the brother and sister) though we would like them better if they had easier to remember names. Right now we're calling them the geeks. It's all very exciting!
This Week's Schedule:
Did someone shoot off a starting gun and I missed it? Holy cow, my calendar has all of a sudden jam packed. How is it possible to have a meeting or event that I am required to be there (and usually in charge of something) every single night this week? And I'm excited for each thing! Just not excited to have them all colliding in the same week. Hooray for wonderful friends who are willing to help, and for a wonderful young women's board who all will pick up their share of the load (and more) and run with it.
We're turning our RS room in the church into a castle dining room for our Young Women in Excellence program tomorrow. Normally I'm not really into the huge productions, but once or twice a year I think they're great. This will be magical and memorable, and the program is all about being a princess. The girls are so excited to dress up for it, and I'm excited for it to come and go. If I remember to take a camera, I'll post a picture.
This weekend our house got tp'd. And a high quality job, I might add. Lots of really really long unbroken strands. That's how you can tell if it's quality, ya know. You have to have a really good backspin in your throw to get those unbroken streamers. Turns out we weren't the only ones celebrating Lizzie's birthday. It was some of the boys from church, helping out. That was way more her style. Nobody even looked at her - unless you count EVERY SINGLE CAR that drove by our house ( with laughing occupants) while we were hurriedly cleaning it up before we all had to be someplace on Saturday morning.
Also - does anyone have an opinion on very young teenage girls and boyfriends? The topic keeps coming up at our house, and the answer is never quite what was hoped for by the asking party. I want to be openminded - keeping the lines of communication open and all that - but I just don't want to open that door yet. I have been assured that having a boyfriend at this age means nothing more than just a mutual agreement of liking each other. (Usually done between the friends of the involved individuals and not the actual boyfriend and girlfriend themselves...)
There would be no touching of any kind, and no socializing together. (Different schools, one extracurricular activity together.) Would I be really overreacting if I were to say "absolutely not under any circumstances including My Dead Body - why don't you just cut out my heart right now"?
Because you're dying to know? I did get all the Halloween stuff put away and the Thanksgiving stuff out. Only what? 2 weeks, until we change it all again. Now, as much as I love each holiday individually, I am leaning toward the whole
idea, where you just decorate once and you can be done with it. Heck, let's throw Valentines Day in there, too.
Thankchristmasweentine's Day.I like it.
