I mixed up some of the candy yesterday. Not that it's rolled or dipped or anything like that, but at least I'm working on it.
and out in and out so now a lot of that straw is out.
Lucas and I met with the booster club president at a coffee shop. So not something that I do. After years of public stuff, I avoid it most of the time now. It was an odd feeling sitting among all those coffee-drinking laptop-packing preppies. So not me. Or Lucas.
At 8:30pm last night Elijah remembered he needed to dress up today for basketball. His dress slacks are high waters. It's a good thing he has me. I can hear it now: "You should have thought of that sooner. It's too cold out. It's too late. I have to get my sleep." Not words that come from my mouth, but definitely words we've heard before. He's a kid and I'm his parent. We do things late at night in the cold even when we don't want to.
Same with picking up Nick. Left here at 11:45pm to meet his bus at the school. Then he asked if I could give this kid a ride who was stranded because his sister got called into work and couldn't pick him up. Of course, I could. What kind of person would leave a kid stranded at -20 below? Don't answer that. We didn't get home until 12:35am. Then I corrected math for another hour. *sigh* These are the things I've been doing for 18 years. And will keep doing. Parenting is the most rewarding sacrifice in the world. Not like giving up sweets. That's not a rewarding sacrifice. That just sucks.
I am taking photos of two basketball teams today. I hope it goes smoothly. I AM NOT a professional. I only shoot on auto and sometimes they are good, and sometimes they are bad. I'm hoping it works out. I'll be spending all day and night putting photos, schedules and stuff on the website and then I'll share the link with all of you. (You can help make my visitor counter go up! :)
Okay, now to go find some long johns......
