Well, the rest of last Tuesday went ok, except for discovering that I had a leaky tire. So Marked pumped it up, and then Wednesday morning I took it over to be fixed (it had a screw stuck in it). Then around mid-day, I discovered that the bottle of dishwashing liquid that I keep by my sink had sprung a leak. (What was it with the leak theme? LOL) I began cleaning up that mess, completely forgetting that I was in the middle of making Kaylee a grilled cheese sandwich, which I ended up burning way beyond edibleness. :-b Fun, fun, fun.

Fortunately, things have been ok since then though. I'm finally starting to feel more like myself again, with just some annoying throat stuff first thing in the morning. The kids are off school the rest of this week for Thanksgiving break, so were going to visit Mark's sisters and their families. It's been two years since we've been down there, so we've got a nephew/cousin we've never met, and his little sister is due in March. Hopefully, we'll make it back down there again before she's nearly two! LOL

We rearranged Matthew's bedroom yesterday. He's got this funky bunk bed, and we've had it with the bottom bed sticking out into the middle of the room ever since he got the set when he turned two. (He's nearly eight now.) Just recently, he's started sleeping up in the top bunk, so we decided to rotate it 90°, so that his head would be towards the wall and so that he wouldn't be directly under the heat vent. His room looks so much bigger now! Of course, we also pulled this gigantic ride-on horse out of there, so that helps a bit too. LOL He was SO excited when he got home from school and saw what we'd done. He kept proclaiming it the best day of his life and thanking me over and over. It was too cute.

Kaylee's gotten really buddy-buddy with a girl in her class lately. Their teacher says they're always just chit chattering away. The last two days, Kaylee's even taken pictures in that she's drawn as gifts for the girl. Of course, she chooses such light colors and uses such a light touch that you have to have your nose up to the paper to even see that there's anything there, but it's the thought that counts. ;-) Then today when I picked her up, she was lamenting that another girl wants to be her friend too and now she has to choose. I tried to tell her that she could have both of them as friends, but she seemed to think that was a ridiculous idea. LOL

Ok, I think that's it for now. Mark is out tonight, so I get to put both kids to bed, and it's time to get things rolling in that area. Happy Thanksgiving! :)
