Too much to blog about

Since my last post we have had tornadoes in Oxford, band banquets, 100 year church anniversaries, friends losing loved ones, celebrating birthdays, girlfriends going with sons to band banquets, lots of bow and arrow shooting, choir banquets with kids getting to dress up and go with Daddy, contracts signed at Potts Camp, backyard springs, curtains made, etc.

I think you know that you are getting a little tired when you aim your van remote at your classroom door to unlock it. Tonight I did a survey with the Immunization dept. I don't think Matt could have laughed any harder listening to me trying to remember where and when Matthew was immunized. I have never felt so inept at anything in my life. A total failure. Hee, hee. I told the guy I didn't want to send him on a wild goose chase for information. He named all of these shots that Matthew has never received. As I said "no" over and over Matt merely said that we are stinky parents. About the question about Matthew's last wellness check-up......I had to say that he hadn't been for one of those in a really long time. I guess when your kids are so well that you just avoid the doctor's office. I am so thankful that we haven't had a real need to go.

Saturday is my birthday and I will be spending the morning with my high school choir getting ready for our concert on Thursday. A small group from choir will be singing the Irish Blessing at graduation on May 17th. I don't think they realize that this is the morning after prom. I probably need to make sure they are up on this to see if we really are going to have a group there. If they don't want to, my principal friend and I might sing the song we sang last year at the choir's spring concert. We always are secretly looking for an occasion to sing together. Too much fun. Here is the song we sang last year: For Good My mom can't tell us apart. I know it is not perfect, but hey, there you go. When I went blank on the words was when I saw rustling behind the stage curtain and heard talking behind stage. I am not that good to block out teenagers.

I was very honored by Emila Yusof's award of World's Greatest Mom
She is such a neat person. Wonderful artist.
I hope all you moms are getting ready for Mother's Day. I saw an article in myhomeideas.com about having a brunch for special moms. I wish I could have a brunch for all of you.

I have lots of great pictures of our weekend coming soon. Being at Pearson and hanging out with our friends was great. Oh, thank you, Kris, Calvin, Brian and Elizabeth for dog-sitting Coltrane while we went to our friends visitation. Sorry he whined so much.

This weekend I also got some good pictures of the kids in Mamaw's backyard. Making forts with Coltrane. Coltrane eating acorns. Good times.

Have a great week.
God bless you.

Happy Birthday (a few days early) Laurie!
And Happy Mother's Day!
Sounds like you are going to be busy.

I'm not sure what time Sandy updates the Pfatt Marketplace. I just know the new stuff is always there when I check it on the morning of the 10th.
Hope that helps.
