My Daybook

For today... Sunday, October 25, 2009

On My Mind...tomorrow is the 5th anniversary of my dad's death. It doesn't seem that long and I still can't believe he's really gone.

Outside My is dark. It was a beautiful Fall day today!

What We're Reading...finished White Ghost Girls for the Take A Chance Challenge. (Still have a few more to read for this!) Now reading An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott for Children's Classics on November 2nd. We started a Magic Tree House book tonight A Good Night for Ghosts, in honor of Halloween. A favorite of Tucker's this week was How To Potty Train Your Monster.

What We're Listening To...almost finished with South of Broad.

What We're Watching...Sad about Russell last week on Survivor; I really liked him! I hope he's okay! One of the girls at work was saying they should have a show of Survivor contestants who have been med-vac'd off the show to give them another chance! Glad that So You Think Can Dance is finally down to the Top 20! Now maybe I can figure out who they all are! As for Dancing With The Stars, I'm not sure how the guy dancing with Chelsea (is a skateboarder?) is hanging in there...still like Melissa and Kellie. My favs on Amazing Race are the dad and son. Still trying to keep up with Three Rivers, Cold Case, and Extreme Home Makeover. Also the Yankees have been on and Michael's watching them now (upstairs, I'm watching cold Case down here,; so I;m not sure who's winning!)

I am hoping...for a less crazy week.

Quotable Quote...This one always makes me think of my dad: When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cried and you rejoice ~ Anonymous

In the Kitchen...we had Chicken Brushetta tonight (haven't had it in awhile-yummy!). For the rest of the week: chicken pot pie, not sure what else.

Around the House...the dishwasher's going...clothes are in the dryer, everything else is folded and put away...spent some time cleaning/de-cluttering yesterday so it looks pretty good!

Coming Up This Week...I'm off tomorrow and going to an apple orchard with Tucker's class in the morning and then helping with the Book Fair in the afternoon...finishing the Halloween cards and pumpkins tomorrow night...lunch with my mom Tues (I'm off again) practice Tues and game Sat...trick or treating with Tucker's friend Freddie on Sat.

Some Picture Thoughts

When I checked on Tucker one night this week before going to bed, I found him curled up with his Shrek and couldn't resist taking a picture!

We went to the Demo Derby at the local Racetrack Tucker and his firend Andrew play with cars before everything starts.

Cute picture of MB and Shrek! I like your acorn shot too.
It's been 6 years since my mom passed and it seems like yesterday and forever at the same time.

Thinking of you and your Dad today.

I love the picutre of Tucker...I can see a little corner of the pillowcase:)!

Louie (?) with Chelsea is a snowboarder I think...I think he has fans in the younger kids like him.

Cindy said...
