This and That

Since I'm exhausted and recovering from Cassidy's slumber party last night, I thought I'd share a few random thoughts and updates on some previously discussed topics. When I'm finally feeling rested and rejuvinated I'll have to share more about last night's party. Now I remember why I've always tried to discourage the girls from having one.

I've been adding updates on my beloved father-in-laws condition to the previous Prayers for Paul entry below.

Regarding the holey jeans issue, I've been too busy to obsess much about that this past week, but was informed by Cassidy that a girl had on the exact same pair of jeans she got in trouble for wearing. Just like I mentioned before, she's still continued to see a large number of kids wearing holey jeans everyday. School will be out of session all of next week, but I will be asking Mrs. XX about the lack of consistency on enforcing the hole policy when they return.

Lucky me- I have to read and review two thick stacks of insurance plan options and coverage information from both mine and the husband's jobs to decide which is the better option for us and I'd rather walk over hot coals. Any benefit specialists reading here? I'm just not that great at this nor in the mood to concentrate and compare the annual deductibles, co-pays, etc. but it's got to be done. I guess I'll procrastinate a little longer and eventually get around to it.

Did anyone watch last Thursday's "The Office"? It was hysterical! We're almost as bad as Star Trek fans with this show. We just can't get enough of this show. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on DVD if anyone is interested.

We're dropping Cassidy & Caden off to stay with their Grandma today. We'll basically be childless until Thanksgiving, except for Lauren and she doesn't really count. Maybe the house will actually stay semi-clean for a few days.

I've soon got the dreaded birthday sneaking up on me and will be getting that much closer to the big 40. Wuhoo! (NOT) I'm getting a digital camera for dummies and can't wait to try it out. It's on order.

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

Sorry I missed your birthday Carri, but I was on vacation when it came up and really preocupied with all the amenities of room service etc. It's really a shock to have to fetch things for myself now, but these good things don't last forever. I would have loved to harrass you about it but it looks like Teresa has done a pretty good job of it. I can always nail you on the fortieth. Happy Birthday Carri, love you/Paul
