A few Friday lists

Charming Things Recently Said by My 1-year-old
1.  Chubby face (while pinching my cheeks)
2.  Stop it
3.  Uh-wock a door- NOW (translation: unlock the door- NOW)

Fun Things Accomplished This Week
1.  Craft night with friends where I made a great cornhusk wreath
2.  Testing for some of the students in Miss A's class- 1st graders are pretty cute
3.  Online shopping, helping me once again stay home when the thought of retail shopping with kids is more than I can handle
4.  Spent time with local family hanging out and eating pizza while the husband helped his brother with some highly nerdy computer/wiring project

Not Fun Things Accomplished This Week
1.  Successfully caught the cold I've been trying to fight for over a week, just in time for a meeting tonight I can't really miss
2.  Took a visit to the doctor and then to the local children's hospital for ultrasound and labs to see about the lump on de-Man's neck that hasn't gone away for the last 6 weeks.  Luckily all tests are coming back normal.  Unluckily we still don't know what it is, but hopefully it will go away soon.
3.  Vacuumed the family room 20 times due to the trail of cereal that seems to never end  
4.  Burned out the motor on my blender this morning while making a smoothie, sticking to my one blender a year average

Things I'm Grateful for Today
1.  PBS kids (not my favorite mode of entertainment, but I'm glad it's there when I need it)
2.  Quiet, unexpected promptings
3.  Good friends
4.  Supportive family
5.  Stretchy pants
6.  Popsicles (currently this pregnancy is brought to you by Dreyer's whole fruit bars)

Hope you have a great weekend!  Two family birthdays on the agenda, so hoping I feel better fast.

Sounds like a rather successful week! I am sick too and unfortunalty felt obligated to stay away from the primary meeting so i didnt contaminate anyone else. You'll have to tell me how it was.
