I'm just checking in.
How is your week?
Mine is Crappie so far thank you.
Notice I said "crappie"...like the fish! I am 40 years old and my mother doesn't like for me to say it...you know the other way...so I changed it to "crappie" pronounced "croppie." Yes, I did.
Here is the exciting list:
Sunday: Take oldest daughter to Nerd Camp...sorry band camp.
She is a fish out of water (more fish references). I've never seen to so many flashes of light when we entered a room. Band nerds everywhere stopped tuning their instruments when she and Jami walked in. And the flash of light? All of their braces of course!
I really am not meaning to be cruel about the "nerd" part. Oh, crappie! Did I offend anyone? I'm sorry! I'm sure you are not a nerd!
These people at camp really are...excluding Rachel and Jami of course!
They wake the nerd herd up every morning with tubas....I wish I were kidding.
This was Rachel's text to me last night, "PLEASE, COME GET ME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" And then she called me and nearly cried. I really want to go get her but my friend, Jami's mom calmly explained to the girls and to me, that if they want to come home early they need to clear it with their band teacher...clearly Dyan is the calm, reasonable mom around here. Mrs. C, please expect a sad phone call from your drum majors today.
Apparently, this really isn't Drum Major camp~it's Band Camp and she isn't learning anything new except what not to wear! Oiy!
Monday was a great day! Awesome times at home trying to get my pricing together for my upcoming photography business! Woo-hoo!!!!! I really am excited about this one. It is not "Crappie" at all...unlike the majority of this week.
Tuesday I attended a workshop on Excel.
Isn't that exciting!
I would have rather plucked my eyebrows!
It was looooooooooooooooong and I only learned 2 new things.
But, last night was the highlight of my week. I did a photo shoot with my nephews and they really do light up my life....do you remember that song? I loved that song. I use to roller skate to that song with my ever so cool leg warmers (maybe I should have gone to Nerd Camp this week). Remember who sang it? I do. Name that singer!
Today is set to be another "Crappie!" morning...it's my "annual" appointment with my doctor but first I will face nurse Barracuda who will frown at me when I get on those dreaded, could not possibly be correct, scales...and then she will wonder why my blood pressure is slightly elevated when she takes my blood pressure after I see that dreaded number on the scales! I will keep muttering to myself, "I am a daughter of the King of kings and Lord of lords and He loves me anyway!"
Yep, it's a "Crappie" week for sure. But, I guess I'll grab my fishing pole (crappie...as in fish...remember?) and make lemons out of lemonade....sorry I haven't fished in years and I didn't know how to wrap up this awesome (hear the sarcasm) post.
Ya'll have a great day! I hope it's not crappie!
