Let's see now...what can we talk about today?
And the winner is....
Good. For. Her.
Blakey was gracious and knew it was coming, didn't he?
I hated his bebop singing so badly last night, I had to change the channel.
It was actually the worst thing on the show.
Right next to Kelly Clarkson's song....and Sanjaya's song. (and I like him)
But, when the 6 boys sang and the six girls sang...well, that was fab!
I was delighted to see Bette Midler on stage.
Yay!!! Don't you love her?
And I thought the Beatle medley was awful.
So that's it for this year. I watched more than usual this season.
And I think that's because of the talent of Lakisha and Melinda, and you all egging me on. :o)
During the show (the long, long, long show) I took photos of Katie.
The light was calling me.
And so was the wind.
Then I fiddled with my 'photoshop'.
'Hey look, Katie, you have purple eyes!'
And the proof...
That she's a real live relatively normal seven year old.
Look! Her teeth (first pic) are almost all grown in.
They are some big teeth.
Hope the others fit!
So now I have one week.
One week until crunch time. (that's for Matthew even tho he doesn't read this blog...Melinda, tell Matthew I said crunch time, it will make him smile)
Emma graduates next Saturday.
Friday night is set up.
Saturday night we (ha ha) are having a graduation party for Emma.
A big graduation party.
Over a hundred people graduation party.
I am not officially freaking out yet.
But it's a comin'.
Patrick did not want a party.
Matthew was graduated up north and Patty gave the party.
(I helped a little)
Emma wants a party. And I am really happy to do this.
The largest gathering I have hosted in my life was about 18.
So I am...
1. planning the menu
2. borrowing Nesco's
3. Borrowing tables
4. buying plates and napkins
5. ordering a cake
6. ordering deviled eggs (I am not making these)
10. shopping for food
11. starting to freak out!
12. changing sheets
Gale/Thelma/Lynn has offered to come and help me.
Cause I wouldn't have asked.
I'm just really glad to have help.
really, really, really, really....
Matthew and Melinda and Patrick and Shelby are coming home.
I will squeeze the girls into Katie's room.
One of them can sleep on the aerobed.
(I need more twin sheets.)
The boys will sleep in the basement.
Like I said....Crunch Time
Any words of advice?
Words to calm my frenetic soul?
Encourage one another,
