On My Mind...A family friend fell off a ladder yesterday and is in Hartford Hospital ICU with two hematomas of his brain as well as a fractured neck (thankfully he is not paralyzed). However, the swelling in his brain is not going down and if it doesn't by Wed, they will have to operate which puts him at risk for losing the function of his left side and/or his speech. He also does not recognize his wife (my mom's friend Sue) or his son or know who he is, where he is, etc. It's all very scary and I'm hoping you will all keep in in your thoughts and prayers.
Outside My Window...it is dark and it is raining and very windy.
What We're Reading...I'm having a hard time getting into Confessions of An Ugly Stepsister and also started The Grapes of Wrath. In addition to the picture books we read with Tucker, we also read Horrid Henry and the Soccer Fiend. Tucker really enjoyed The Day the Stones Walked and a re-read of Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs (only seemed appropriate after seeing the movie yesterday!) He also enjoyed The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane which his teacher read to the class (I'm guessing he must have if he told me I need to read it!).
What We're Listening to...I finished listening to True Colors and am halfway through The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
What we're Watching...oh my, so much going on! Amazing Race started last night and that is our favorite reality show! Just finished watching Dancing with the Stars (I'm liking Kellie and the one with Derek). Other shows we're tuning into are: So You Think You Can Dance and Survivor. Tucker's still liking iCarly.
I am hoping...to sleep well tonight.

A Funny Thing...Michael bought new blinds for the bedroom this week and since Tucker always has to report on everything that happens when I'm not home, he announced to me :"Daddy bought two new blonds for the bedroom!"
In the Kitchen...yummy roast last night, leftovers tonight, BLTs tomorrow, chicken pot pie, and who knows what else the rest of the week.
Around the House...as usual, laundry to be folded...the rest is pretty neat, actually!
Coming Up this Week...school pictures tomorrow...Soccer practice tomorrow night...a home visit Thurs...soccer pictures Fri night...soccer game Sat (my mom's coming to it)...a birthday party for Tucker's friend Javen Sat afternoon...Cub Scout camp-out Sat night...celebrating my m-i-l and niece's birthdays on Sunday.
A Picture Thought...I didn't take many pictures this week other than for my photo blog.
