Wow! Can you believe it's already the 16th of May?? Half the month is gone already and this is my first entry... Where does the time go?
Mother's Day was good. Grace got me some flowers in a vase with a stuffed bear on it that says ' #1 Mom'... but she took the bear. Hmph ;)
She got me some pre-mixed tuna salad and a pecan roll, too. May not be much to some here, but to me~its all my favs and she knows it already.
My brother took my Mom and I (and Grace) to brunch at Waffle & Steak. We love that rinky dink place :) Closest thing to a truck stop 'round here... I loves me some truck stop food... LOL
Been a sad week for my tv programs. The final episode (ever!) of The West Wing aired Sunday night, as well as the final episode of Malcolm in the Middle (comic relief~I loved their mom, Lois!)
Of course Grey's Anatomy was awesome for its two night finale! Between that and Lost... I can hardly wait for re-run season to begin :)
Now, AI is on. I must say Taylor and Kat did magnificent with their judges choice songs. I missed Elliott, so I can't comment on him. Simon picked the perfect song for Kat, too. Over the Rainbow is one of my most favorite songs ever. I'm thinking I heard a little Eva Cassidy influence in her performance, too... Anyone else think so?
And Randy's choice... well, I knew Taylor would hit 'You are so beautiful' outta the ball park. That he did. Even Simon liked it!
In other Kitty news, work is going fine. I am resisting the urge to play hooky this week big time. Was gonna stay home today, but today was a half day, so I made me go :) If I'm gonna waste a sick day, its going to be for a full day.
Found out that the current Lead Teacher in my room is on her last year or two with us. She and her husband are looking to buy property and start a family. When that happens, she said she is not working anymore. So, opportunity will be knocking soon.
Lead teachers make way more than Assistants (obviously). Maybe even enough to get me to stay there permanently :) My hours would probably change to 6:30-2:30 (with no lunch hour), which I'm not at all thrilled about, but only if I want them to.
Those hours would be more suited with Grace once she's in school. Only I do not like getting up that early. Kitty's a late night type of gal...
So, we'll see.
Lets see... took Grace to the dentist last Friday. She had a cavity and the dentist could tell I was about to cry! I have tried very hard to keep her teeth clean... but on her paperwork was written "poor oral hygiene". I damn near lost composure.
The dentist was like "I can tell you are totally shocked!" Well, no shit, Sherlock! I have brushed Grace's teeth twice a day and flossed before bed. I even bought one of those plaque scraper thingys and used it. Guess we weren't brushing her long enough! So, now, we sing a song or two (for 2 minutes) and brush until we're done. And she goes to get her cavity filled next Friday :( I am not looking forward to it because this place doesn't use the lasers/ultrasound/air abrasion. Nope. They're old school and she's gonna get drilled....
I may cry.
Good thing I won't be in there with her. This place doesn't allow parents in while the dentist is working. In this case, I'll gladly not watch or listen. I don't like it when they work on me... I know I'd deck somebody doing it to my kid. So, I'll be patiently waiting in the lobby.
Well, other than this... not much else going on. I will say to my friends heading to the East coast next month that it looks like I'm not gonna join you. Some of you knew that already. But unless some monetary miracle happens in the next two weeks, I'm broke as the proverbial camel's back.
I'm sorry I can't join you all! I really wanted to meet everyone :) But, my plan is make some journeys with my tax check next year. I wanna go West to see Julie and Stacy first. Then I wanna go East for Nae, Colleen, and Bernie. From there, I'd like to head South to my most favorite dock master in my most favorite city~Savannah! Sam suggested I drag Jimmy (aka Stupid) southward to escape the city life :)
So, that's my plan. Its early enough to expect issues with it. But, I will take a vacation next year... somewhere... even if it kills me ;)
Hope you all have been well! If not, here's some baby-love for ya....
PS~ AOL makes my pictures blurry! Grrrrrrrrrr
