nanny nanny boo boo
I am playing hooky today.
No work, just staying home and listening to the lovely sounds of nothing... and The Killers and my sixth Italian lesson.
My daughters will be in school and daycare and I will be home. Alone.
Hate me, don't ya?
Yeah, I see you
Jiffinner and you are so totally giving me the evil eye. Just remember that I bought the kick ass brownies yesterday.
Yeah, I thought so.
Anyway, the real reason I am staying home is because I have a lot of stuff to do (I typed "stiff" the first time and trust me, I don't have any "stiff" to do. If I did, I so wouldn't be on here blogging). I have needed to run into San Antonio for about five days now and haven't been able to schedule it in with work and my daughters increasingly crazy schedules. So, I am going to do some housework and then take a shower sans kids running in and out asking me questions and/or tattletaling on their sisters and then I am off to San Antonio. I am not telling you why because I don't want to jinx it!

In the meantime, I have to blog a couple of things that the girls have done that cracked me up this week.

The first: Amanda stayed home from school on Tuesday morning because she had a stomach ache. Ruthie had to pick Emilee up at eleven so I just told her to take Amanda in at eleven since I knew she would be fine by then.
Amanda gets bored pretty easily though and she continuously called me through out the morning to ask me things. The nine hundredth call went like this:
ring ring ring
me: Yes, Amanda?
Amanda: Mommy, I can't watch TV.
me: Why not Amanda?
Amanda: Because you are recording something. Why are you guys always recording eeeerrr?
me: Recording what?
Amanda: Errrrr, eeeerrrr Mommy. Why are you guys always recording eeerrrrr? You record it like three times every day.
For those of you as slow as I am, she was asking why we are always recording ER.

Yesterday morning, I woke up and heard Trin crying in the other room. It was about 4:30 and I knew she had probably had a bad dream. I got up and came into her room and asked her if she was ok. She was still crying so I picked her up and asked her if she wanted to go get in bed with Mamma. She shook her head yes so I carried her into my room. I asked her if she had a bad dream and she again shook her head yes. I got into bed with her and snuggled up and then asked her what had happened in her bad dream and she said "Amanda threw off my groove."
For those of you without children, she is referring to
The Emperors New Groove.
[Kuzko collides with an old man while dancing]

Kuzco: Aargh. You threw off my groove!
Guard: I'm sorry, but you've thrown off the Emperor's groove.
[the old man is thrown out of the palace window]
Old Man: Sorry.
Ok, now I am off to clean. Have a fun day at work bloggers!

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
