Good Morning Company Girls!!
Do you remember that song from years ago...'What a day for a daydream'...well, I wish today was the day for that.....my goodness!
Emma will be sixteen this weekend....she has planned a birthday party for herself for tonight. Now, because we are a 'large' family over the years I've had to draw the line for the age when birthday parties stop....usually it is at the age of ten....but..... Since February Emma has been planning this party....first she wanted it in the summer.....an early birthday because she wanted a beach party....she set up the requirements for us agreeing to this...she would get over 80 in all her subjects! Well, hubby had a fit...there was absolutely no way he'd agree to that....but I quickly pointed out(out of earshot of Emma) that Emma barely passes most of the time....you see, she has good intention but lacks focus and soon loses her train of thot when it comes to school work.....she has boggled the mind of many poor teacher over the years! They beg her to hand in any work at all just so they'd have something to mark...anyways, I digress......I was positive the marks wouldn't be happening so I agreed. Needless to say...we didn't have a summer beach party.....
So, in August, she started to plan the one she is hostessing tonight......she's planned activities and games....she's invited about five friends from school and church...to be here all evening til 11 p.m.! We shall see how it goes but I'm sure she'll be happy with it because she has planned everything!
We shall also see how hubby and I survive a houseful of sixteen year old teenage girls for the whole evening!
On another note, with Emma....Emma has asthma (she also has many allergies) ......apparently one of the prerequisites for obtaining the H1N1 flu shot is having asthma...so the doctor's office called and wanted her to come in for it....so...yesterday, I took her there, sat for about twenty minutes in a 'germ filled' atmosphere..which I wasn't pleased about......only to have her finally called in and then come back out....'salmon...it has salmon'.....'what are you talking about?'....the needle...it has salmon....I'm allergic...I can't have it!' Good grief......I was not impressed!
Yesterday morning I spent the whole morning in the orthodontist office while Megan had her braces put on....I will admit that I've been waiting for this day since she came to live with us four years ago.....her teeth are really crooked....something could have been done by removing some when she was younger to make room ..but it wasn't....somebody dropped the ball back then and by the time she came to us it was too late. It's very difficult for her to brush her teeth and get them clean when the teeth are so crooked. So, yesterday morning, for 2-1/2 hours...she sat, while they applied the braces. I will not post a picture....I will not tell her...but it isn't a pretty site.....I hope she doesn't get teased at school today....she would be very upset.
So.....if hubby and I survive the weekend then I will talk to you next week...let you know how it all went.
Two weeks...give or take...till baby Wett! Yea!
