Have fun Jen.

Sorry about the chap who was drunk. It's such a shame. The poor kid

I had a nice long chat with my sister. Oli is soooo sweet. She sent me a bunch of photos. He's adorable!

But I have to sleep now. It's nearly 1am already!

everyone!

Goodnight Janine! Thanks for the pics of Fynn today.

Home. It was a HARD afternoon at school. Friday afternoons suck. The kids are just DONE and are not concentrating. I had to use my angry teacher voice today. I don't like having to do that.

I am stuffed full of Thai fried rice and we are all watching AFV on Netflix while I wash a huge load of school jerseys from this week's track & field events. Nice, relaxing Friday night.

Not a single tip. Blah. Worked all day for free. Oh well, hopefully some of them will become repeat customers and pay next time, that was the goal.

Bethann, I can personally attest having an area dedicated to reading away from the TV, with comfortable seating and easy access to books, has increased my kids' reading probably tenfold. The girls have always been avid readers, but now finally Ian is. And they actually prefer to go read than use the computer/TV/Wii most of the time. If you can't do a bench for books, a bookcase and a bean bag would work too. That's what my sister and I had in the space under the stairs growing up.
The boys actually each have a nice reading area in their room, there are 2 window seats, and they have a big basket of books. This new one will be just for me LOL

My main stumbling block is the floors. I hate sweeping and mopping. This house is all hard floors except the basement. I bought a new damp mop for the hardwoods but it's still in the wrapper. And to be totally honest the kitchen needs to be swept and mopped every day, but I don't do it. Ugh. I can keep up with everything else but that I just don't wanna do.
I feel you on the floors. I'm the same way

awesome. The fire dept was at Levi's school today too, he was excited because my sister's boyfriend was on of the firefighters who brought the truck over. He felt special that he knew one of them.
