Miscellany Monday

miscellany monday at lowercase letters
  • Why is that weekends are either fun or productive?  This past weekend wasn't really very fun, but I was finally able to get the floor clean, made applesauce, apple bread at ate at home every meal.  Gotta love Pinterest when you need to use up some apples.
  • I think we are finally over the yucks at our house.  E got croup on Halloween and S and I have been battling it for the last week.  I only almost lost my voice on Saturday but I had a nice sore throat all last week.  No wonder E was so grumpy while she was sick.
  • Someone broke my classroom window last Thursday night.  We have had a lot of graffiti and vandalism around my school for the last year or so.  It looks like a BB but luckily it didn't shatter the window, only put a hole in it.  I've felt like I'm teaching at night the last couple or days with the cardboard covering my only outside window.  Hopefully it will be fixed tomorrow.
  • I have a little drummer boy on my hands.  A couple of weeks ago Mr. P took S to the last high school football game.  (We had gone to most of the home games.)  This time S came back and would talk about football and immediately follow it with dum dum dumdum.  The boy LOVED the marching band.  We always sat behind the band because they are entertaining but this time it has really stuck with him.  We got a book from Chick-fil-a by Mercer Meyer that has...instruments in it.  He loves to look at the page where there is a drum set and a marching band.  I've been finding him drum YouTube videos and it is soo cute to see his reaction.  I too have a love of the marching band drums.  There's nothing that screams love football like a band.  Now I just need to get him to play his little drum to Little Drummer Boy.
  • We listened to Christmas music tonight...I can't wait.
  • Little girl is ATTACHED to my leg.  I don't know what to do.  She won't leave my side and most of the time she wants to be held.  It is exhausting. 
  • S and E are into "helping" me cook.  As soon as I got the mixer out tonight they were dragging over chairs to stand on.  I tried to give them the job of taking the stems off of the spinach tonight... we need to work on that.  :-)  At least it kept them entertained for a while.
