I am back!

Crazy week...

Tuesday I woke up to a terrible mess. The twins got hungry late night and decided to make jello. With milk, flour, and a dozen eggs! The best thing about being almost 5 is that they can now clean up their own messes. Also, they now take responsibility for their actions. They totally got why I could only make toast due to the fact that everything else had been wasted. Yay for lessons learned!!!

Wednesday, we had our classes at church and all went well. And T went to ballet again and LOVED it this time.

Thursday, back at Church for a meeting, and T walks up to her teacher from last year. She is VERY pregnant. T knocks on her tummy "Hello in there? When are you coming owtta there?" Then she tries to look under her skirt!! Well...we had a long talk about boundaries after that one!

Friday, went up to pre-school and made an apple pie with J and his class. Then when I got home I talked to my friend on bedrest. Her nephew (who for all my Dallas friends goes to HYER), has a confirmed case of the swine flu! When they notiffied the school, they seemed unconcerned. Wanted to let Moms out there aware because the school took the news lightly and indicated they would not send out an allert.

Also...apparently, it is everywhere in Dallas right now. So remember to wash those hands!!!!

I took down my last post and pictures because...

I was warned about this.

Current Events : Discussions : Couple sues WalMart over bathtime ...

Now I am worried. I probably needed to take the picture off anyway, some sicko might enjoy the picture of J's toosh a little too much. He was sliding down the slide on his tummy for goodness sakes! Any thoughts? I get worried when I am warned I could get reported...

Paul just got his first check from this new company he launched!!! It is tiny, but just enough of what we needed today! Also, it is our 5 year anniversary, which is paper. Money is paper, right? So is that check! Happy days on the horizon, I JUST KNOW IT!!!!

I have allot to talk about...
1. The twins started pre-k with me crying , but they seemed o.k.

2.One of my BFF's is on hospital bed rest, so this floods my mind with memories...

3. Our insurance just gave us an impossible deductible for the twins....

4.And today, J ran into my car door with his eye brow, thus more stitches... ( And y'all know I faint at blood).
5. Oh... and T has Bronchitis...

Another thing... I have a very thoughtful exchange I need to mail, but I cannot make it to USPS!.... Carey, I am so sorry!

BTW, MY blog partner from Monograms and Manicures sent me the BEST SWAP EVER!!!
