(Neener, neener, neener!)
This is Prom Day for all the local schools and they all close since all the girls would take the day off anyway. Other than a day off, the only thing it really means for me is that I can't get anything done with my hair or a manicure or pedicure because every teenage girl within 50 miles has a salon appointment somewhere. All the salons (even the one in Walmart) are places you want to avoid today.
I can't express how excited I am. I really need this. I am so tired and frazzled lately that my mind has not been working at it's best.
While I'm here, I'm going to catch up on my thankfulness with Rebecca Jo and the girls over at Knit By God's Hand.
This week I am thankful...
* that I am off today and get to have a fun girls' day.
* that there are only 10 days of school left! The kiddos are pretty antsy at this point and if I have one nerve left they are dancing all over it. I feel like the teachers look when they bring the kids out to the buses in the afternoon...and it's not pretty. LOL
* that while testing diagnosed our granddaughter with dyslexia, disgraphia, and ADD, it also showed her to be highly intelligent. Our daughter-in-law home schools and the doctor feels that is perfect for her right now as it gives her a fighting chance she might not get in public school. She is already doing very well at finding ways to compensate and deal with it.
* for the rain. I'm kind of sick of it, but it sure has made everything beautiful and lushly green! And plenty of rain should mean no drought this summer.
* for the coworker who stopped me on my way into the bus lot at the end of the day yesterday and said she'd park my bus for me. I was whipped and it must have showed.
* for plenty of time with my little luv bug. He is growing like a weed and weighs 16 pounds already! His big smiles just melt my heart, but his biggest ones are for his momma only!
Couldn't you just eat him up?!
* that our other two grandkids had a great time running the Pittsburgh Children's Marathon. Our granddaughter had joined a group and trained for it. The group ran together and finished in 14 minutes. She is 8. Our grandson was too young for the group but ran on his own and at 4 years old, he finished in 16 minutes! No wonder they wear me out.
* that Mom and my stepdad are heading out to Florida on Tuesday. This will be, according to my stepdad, his last trip down for a follow-up on his cancer treatment (he chose to have his cancer treated at the Proton Center in Jacksonville). I don't know if this is his last because they say so or because at 75 he's simply decided he's done making the trip. Either way, he has been cancer free for over 5 years so it's probably okay.
* for all my family and friends and especially for the God who is my everything.
* and, as always, for each one of you who bothers to visit and read my drivel.
Have a safe, happy, and
***UPDATE*** For those who admired my beautiful HAPPY grandson's picture, please enjoy another one of his moods. LOL
