Lori's Minute

Thursday, October 22, 2009

This weekend we are going to a wedding. Our friend Greg is getting married. He is our son's godfather. Pete will be an usher at the wedding and has to wear a tux! I tried Luke's dress clothes on him and they are a tad small but if we do not have time to get him a new outfit, it will do. We are all very happy for Greg.

We went to Bree's first choral concert of the year and the group sounded very good. We also went to Luke's parent teacher conference and he is doing well but needs to practice his math facts and penmanship. He is an excellent reader! As a surprise we stopped at the school book fair and purchased a Star Wars Lego book which will arrive soon.

Spanky went in for a hair cut. Pete went to see a chiropractor. I've been at home with a cough, enough to keep me awake most of the night. It seems better today.

I have been trying to clean the house and am not successful with not feeling well and the dreary days. I will try again tomorrow. I purchased new curtains but have to iron them first. I can't find my water spray bottle. Once I find it, I should be good to go. Maybe I should have the kids look for it since one of them probably took it in the first place.

We still have to get pumpkins!

Well with Pete being gone all week to St. Louis I thought I was going to get a lot more done around the house than I did. I did mow the lawn (had Bree show me where I missed so I got those spots as well) and I went out to lunch twice for my birthday. Once with my friend Jean and once with my mom. Both were good food and good company.

I also worked on my next column for the paper and sent it in to the editor. It should be in this Monday. October is National Disability Employment Awareness month and since I worked for 15 years with a hearing and sight impairment, I shared my experiences. (Most of it good).

We also had a meeting with Bree's counselor at school to go over her goals and so on. I was surprised to learn she wants to be a mermaid....not sure where one goes to college for that but we will look for one. Ok, she really wants to be a teacher.

Today I replaced lightbulbs, cleaned the floor, ran the dishwasher and did some laundery. Next I will clean out the pantry.

I finally turned the furnace on since the I read it was 62 degrees in the house. I was trying to hold off until Novemeber but we could actually get snow this weekend, before Halloween!

Pete comes home tonight!
