Okay, I think I've got a theme for MY mural. I won't say what it is, I'll just see if I actually accomplish it and, if so, I'll take a photo as proof.
Looking back, it was a good week. Terri does this thing on Fridays where she blogs about things that she's thankful for from the week. Maybe I should do a similar looksee:
I'm thankful that the kids are back in school and all are enjoying their schools/friends/schedules/teachers. I have a friend who has a daughter the same age as Chaco. So far the daughter "hates everything" about the high school. Chaco, on the other hand, seems to love love love it.
I'm thankful that my husband's job and the flexibility of my job allows me to do volunteer stuff. Picture day at the elementary school was draining, but we had a good time. It's nice to be favorably recognized by the kids as that Run With Lumber lady, nice to say hello to returning teachers, and I must admit that the other volunteers are a hoot to work with.
I'm thankful that, through a combination of Brandy extolling the virtues of her juicer, my kids watching too much Paid Programming over the summer, and my not knowing what to do with the bounty from Mag's garden, we are now proud owners of our own Power Juicer (as seen on TV). We tried it out yesterday where I made my own version of V-8. None of the kids were interested in drinking much of it but all were highly entertained by the lifelike blood and gore effects of the juicing process.
I'm thankful that a very good friend of mine from high school that I haven't heard from since... well.... high school found my facebook page and contacted me. So many fun memories! Not that I'd want to go back, but still, it's fun to catch up.
I'm thankful for my trusty bicycle. It gets about 53 miles to the burrito.
