two minute post...

Yah, I have to get out the door. My niece has hurt her back and needs some help today with William and the little twins. One year old twins are more than just a little bit busy. I need to eat my oatmeal, my coffee is already in a travel mug. The kids went out the door happily this morning, visions of Valentine's Day parties in their heads. Charlotte Claire remembered her decorated card box, Camille her Cool-Whip, and Jonathan his bag of candy. phew. The older kids left before I could load them up with goodies to share with their friends, but I'm sure the bowl will be raided when they get off the bus.

I bought six pounds of fresh strawberries yesteday, two are already gone despite my repeated, "Do Not Eat Those Until Tomorrow", because I remembered that Aaron and Mirielle have clinical tonight until almost midnight. Can't have them missing out! Yes, I had some. With my nightly grapefruit.

Suri goes back to the vet tomorrow, I don't think she is healing up so well. Her incision is nice and clean, but she still walks on three legs.

Tomorrow afternoon, eye appointments for three kids, and sock and undies shopping for some girls. Perhaps pool in the evening.

You must be so organized!, people say to me. Ha. Ha ha ha.

I made friends with Travis, my cashier in the grocery store yesterday. He commented on all the strawberries, so I told him how when I bring home one or two pounds, the kids only get a few each, and since it is Valentine's Day, I want them to be able to have more...he simply couldn't believe how many kids I had, so I pulled out my handy-dandy family pic. The kid is a keeper, the first question he asked was about the volume of laundry! Nice boy.

Anyway, it's a shame none of my kids were with me to embarrass. They don't particularly like when I pull out that family picture.

So....all for now. Have a nice Valentine's Day. Be thankful for what you have. Bless and you will be blessed.

Happy Valentines Day to you too! I bought strawberries too, I put them out for breakfast and the girls finished them off. Then I put more out at lunch and my 8 year old stared at them with big eyes and said, "It's like we hit the strawberry lottery!!"

I love that he asked about laundry. Most males do not think about that ;-)
