I'm taking Caitlin to driver's ed today and while she is in class, I will be enjoying some shopping. Some of my stops today will be Best Buy, the Kitchen store in the mall and Ulta. I'm having a garage sale in a couple of weeks and while I'll be getting rid of some items, I'll need to purchase items to replace upgrade the items that I'm selling.

Have I mentioned that Ray accepted the job in Texas? We've been sorting through and filling out lots of paperwork. He's seen the doctor for his physical, drug test, etc. So things have been a bit busy 'round here.

Our last high school soccer game of the regular season is this evening and next week is the start of the playoffs. The girls will have to pull out everything they have to make it much further. They've had a good season but I don't think this is the team to make it all the way. I think the boys team has a better shot at state this year. But it's all fun and I look forward to all of it.

Our competitive soccer teams have the real State Cup coming up soon. Can't wait!!

Wax Museum

Cody's school had all the 3rd graders create characters for the Annual Roosa Wax Museum. This is the cutest production that I've ever seen done in school and pictures will never do it justice but I just want to post a few so that you can see a glimpse of what takes place. I even took a video of the end of Cody's portrayal of Albert Einstein. The characters are frozen into whatever position that fits the character.

If you look on the floor in front of the characters, you can see a round black object. This is a button that you press with your foot and the character comes to life and tells you about themselves.

This was fun today.

I guess you can mail anything

While I was standing in line at the post office today, patiently waiting for the next window to open up, I heard the crowing of a rooster; loud and clear and coming from the window at the other end of the counter. I was looking to see who was going to answer their phone with the rooster crowing ringtone but didn't see anything. Another minute or two later, more crowing. And then I heard one of the clerks ask, "When is that truck coming to pick up those birds?" The second clerk answered, "At four o'clock. At least the roosters aren't as annoying as the chickens we get."

Garage Sale

I'll be having a garage sale in the near future so I'm trying to locate items that I no longer have any use for to put up for sale. Leslie and I are going to have one in the next couple of weeks, but probably at her house. We decided that it would be more pleasant and less chore-like if we threw our stuff together for this event. Getting everything together is unpleasant but I'm sure the day of the sale will be somewhat enjoyable.

Rain for Friday

Caitlin's boyfriend, Caleb, came over last night and we all sat around and watched Tristan and Isolde while Caitlin narrated about how every scene was "just like Romeo and Juliet". I was actually more impressed with how she had been paying attention in school to Shakespeare.

It's raining here this morning and is suppose to all day. That wouldn't be so bad except for the fact that all of the kids have soccer games tonight (except for Cody, who doesn't play yet). I'm hoping for no reschedules.

We should hear next week about Ray's job offer. The offer has many approvals to go through and waiting is just one of the benefits he has already been awarded. And it doesn't help that one person doing the approval is out of the country.

I have a doctor's appointment today which I highly dread and can't wait for it to be over. ask? Because the scale at the doctor's office is mean.

My morning ritual

Remember when I said that I visit Sonic too much? Well, once again I was reminded that I really need to quit or at least go in disguise. The carhop said when she walked out of the door with my order, she didn’t even look to see where it was going. She saw me and just knew. Maybe I shouldn't order the same thing everytime.

Blog Worthy?

I can't get myself to blog somedays because the "goings on" in my life are the same things happening over and over again. Why would I share these drab details of going to soccer practice, soccer games and off to work again? I could, however, talk about the day that Cody announced that Oprah is scary. But I think you had to be there. Or the day that Hayden came home from school and said that he ran around the school yard with his shorts pulled up to his chest and it was funny. That's a proud moment.

Until I have more...
