And They Wonder Why I'm Always Shrieking

My oldest daughter wanted to buy lunch at school today instead of packing. I knew my youngest did too, as it was chicken nugget day at her school.

Since I had no cash, I went to the ATM. I needed to break the twenty so I parked in front of the nearest coffee house. There wasn't one customer inside so I knew it would be speedy.

I told my oldest to go inside and get herself a cup of coffee. She wanted flavored. I told her there would be metal carafes of coffee and to pick whatever flavor they had ALREADY MADE UP. Then she could grab cream and sugar and we could go.

So I waited and waited and waited some more. She comes out with a MOCHA! She says, "I didn't know they had to make those up special."

Duh, duh and double duh.

I am trying very hard not to be irritated so much with the kids, but it's hard to soar like an eagle when you're surrounded by turkeys.
********************
My oldest daughter is a very talented singer. She has been asked by her high school choir teacher to audition for honor choir at a local college.

My son has been able to carry a tune for as long as I can remember.

My youngest daughter is great at art...She joined choir. :P

When she sings, she seems to be channeling Alfalfa from the Little Rascals.

It is probably obvious that I am blogging less and less. I am trying to blog at least once or twice a week but it's hard to find the time.

I may have to give it up. I hope not.

Have a wonderful weekend.

"..., but it's hard to soar like an eagle when you're surrounded by turkeys." That is so me.

You can't stop! your life & mine sound similar on so many accounts!
(sorry to scare you, I'm sure your hubby isn't any where as selfish & stupid as mine) but the kid thing & your thoughts on people & the world.

I do know what you mean. It is harder for me to do posts right now too, but I'll be happy with what ever you post, even if it is only once a week or even less. Just blog when you can. We all love you too much to not hear from you anymore, plus I'll understand if you can't get around to reading my boring posts. Do what you gotta do. But please don't stop all together.
We all love ya!

Blogging is strange isn't it? Sometimes you can feel so inspired, other times you could cheerfully never compose another post again. Just blog when you can and want to :-)

Just keep keeping on. That's all we humbly ask. Yes, we could live with once in a while or once a week. Just don't go away...we'd miss you...

I know I would.

Having said that, live first, blog second. Otherwise, you wouldn't have anything to blog about...

I think everyone has already confirmed that you are loved too much to leave us. So I will tell you that we need more sarcasm here in blogger land and that you must stay. ;)

Teach the middle child the lyrics to "Sing....sing a song....sing out loud...sing out strong....don't worry if it's not good enough for anyone else to hear....just sing...sing a song" (lalalalala) Don't forget to tell her to sing it as loud as she possibly can. It should be quite entertaining.

please don't give up blogging. You are very good at it. Besides I fear my grandchildren would meet with a very unsavory end if you had no time for yourself. YOU NEED THE OUTLET!!!
I knew A took after me. I still sound like Alfalfa when I sing.
