We are green

Last night was promotion testing at Tae Kwon Do. I never do very well with the stress of testing, and the heat and humidity didn't help matters. Not my best performance. Alana did well. Seems we must have done well enough because we were awarded our next belts.

Lazy Day

Alana announced this morning that she is not getting out of her jammies all day. Since we spent the last few days just going nonstop it sounded like a good idea. The day began with her and all the animals in my bed watching television. Next, she moved on to playing her Nintendo and knitting. As we get into the afternoon we'll see if she continues on her lazy day quest. She did say that she would get dressed for her Tae Kwon Do class tonight.

The Ugliest Cake

We usually celebrate Alana's birthday with a family cookout on a day when we can all get together. The cake isn't so much for eating as it is for decoration (we are more pie people). Alana usually just picks out a theme cake from a local store and life is good. I wish someone took a picture of my face when we went to pick up the cake this year. We have named it "the ugliest cake". Seriously, I could have done better myself. It was lopsided, cracked, and the decoration was ...

I told them to forget the cake. They had me just take it.
You would think that they would want to destroy the evidence. The ice cream cake that we picked up on the way home seemed to suit her just fine. On Monday when we celebrate her actual birthday, I think we'll skip the cake.

Lifted from Lin

Outside my window... rain...again
I am thinking... that I should get my act in gear
I am thankful for... a day off
From the kitchen... Alana is heating up leftovers
I am wearing... shirt and jeans
I am creating... a prayer shawl
I am going... to be celebrating my dd's birthday this weekend
I am reading... My Sister's Keeper
I am hoping...that damage can be repaired
I am hearing... the rain on the roof
Around the house... it looks like a bomb went off
One of my favorite things... diet coke
A few plans for the rest of the week...sleep, knit, visit with family and friends, celebrate two birthdays, get ready to test for next belt
