Re: Basically it's the weekend!

We are puttering around the house this morning, then this afternoon we are dropping Malcolm off at a friend's place so Dan and I can go see the new Harry Potter movie I'm so excited -we love Potter and haven't been to the movies since the summer. Then this evening we are going over to a new acquaintance's house for a games night -they have a baby a few months younger than Malcolm, so it would be nice to have some more friends with kids (most of our friends are currently childless).

:wave2: Mel! It's so nice to see you! I don't think I was on at the same time as you at all yesterday.

Re: Basically it's the weekend!

I wasn't on much yesterday at all! Too busy with party prep and E's school stuff. But we had a really good day and E got a good report. I'm a little jealous that you're going to see Harry Potter. We wanted to go when my mom was here, but didn't make it.

Can I just say that I love thin pancakes? Love love love!

Re: Basically it's the weekend!

yummm.... there's a large Finnish population here, and so there are two pancake places here that specialize in these really thin Finnish-style pancakes and they are !

I wasn't sure if we would get to see it (Harry Potter) either, but we've had a lot of offers to babysit Malcolm from our friends so we figured we better take them up on it

ETA: I saw that E got a good report too -you and Ru must be so proud! He's a very smart little guy.

I know they do it to keep your account and access to it more secure, but I hate it for just this reason - if you are in a hurry, it can be a costly mistake to drive off and leave your withdrawal hanging out of the wall. Whereas most people who find a card hanging out of the wall will just take it into the bank and turn it in. But anyway.)

So I grabbed the hundred bucks, gunned it around the corner into the parking lot, started honking and tailgating the car that had gone through in front of me.

And I did this for like 10 or 12 blocks. I followed this guy ALL THE WAY HOME, honking, tailgating, trying to pull up beside him at every stop sign waving five $20 bills in my windshield!

He was grateful once I finally got his attention, as he was turning into the parking lot at his townhome complex. I am just glad that there were no cops around - rolling through stop signs, tailgating like a crazed maniac, shouting out my window and honking!

I just know how catastrophic a loss $100 would be to us and I couldn't not do it!

Fun times! So what did I end up doing with the $20 bill I was going to deposit? I took it to Starbucks, of course!
Awesome!!!!

We are proud! His teacher asked what we did to teach him to read, and we had to say "Nothing!" As she said, he "cracked the code" himself. He does need some help with a few fine motor things, but we're already encouraging them here at home.

Becky.

Ru and E are going to head to the park in a few, and I am going to bake the first cake. I only have one round pan, so I need to do them in shifts.
