Where do the weeks go?

Quote of the Day

"We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same."

– Carlos Castaneda

I can't believe its already Friday the 13th tomorrow!
Seriously, where do the weeks go?

Some updates:

Hubby.....Being the city worker that he is he enjoyed a day off yesterday. What did he do you ask? He played golf and arranged a few more lights on the bushes outside.

Me.....I officially fulfilled my final obligation to the school's fundraiser I volunteered for. The NEVER ENDING fundraiser that is. ;o) It started the 2nd week of school and is just ending this week. I am looking forward to having a shorter "to-do" list for awhile. YEA RIGHT! The holidays are right around the corner.....the "TO-DO" list just got longer!

Nicole........She is waaaay over her head in HORSE land. (She and Kenzie went to visit a friends horse last weekend) Ever since she has shed a few tears every time we talk horse. She REALLY wants a horse ... A HORSE people! Not a fish, another kitty, or even a dog...A HORSE! When we had to look her in the eye and as straight as possible tell her THERE IS NO WAY WE WILL BE GETTING A HORSE.....a few reality bites tears came a flowin'. Then she got angry. Then she was mad. Now she is better...
Reality bites!

Makenzie......She had a big week with Math tests. The test is today...I hope she does well. She is really enjoying the Christmas program she has been practicing for. She has a duet part this year and has been spending more time with a friend from church....Angela are you out there????....we love your fun personality! We are also going to a Tony Melendez concert with her and her family next Wed. Makenzie can't wait!

Owen......As I sit "here" I "hear" him humming the STAR WARS theme...yea, he hasn't forgotten about the clones quite yet. He gets to have his 1st friend stay over night on Saturday! He is very excited. (We are actually having him and his sister stay over....she is Kenzie's age so it works well for a double play date or over night)

We are hosting our MPLS. friends on Friday night.
I am just doing a bunch of appetizers....
Should be fun!

I totally understand the horse thing! I'm still wanting one.

Maybe send her to horse camp next summer? There is an amazing overnight camp in little falls, MN called Circle R Ranch. It's a hike to get there but my sister and I LOVED it for many years. It met the horse need for us haha. You get your own horse for the week and do everything for it, ride all day, sleep in cabins, have bonfires, and all the good camp stuff.
