10 Truths about today.

1. I woke up this morning with this sinking feeling, that I did something wrong last night. I wanted to stay in bed and not get out. Except that the little people were making noise. So goes my duty. Perhaps it was a dream?

2. I haven't brushed my hair all day. I took a shower, yes. But then I put my hair in a pony tail, and it's been that way since.

3. I was inspired by my friend's facebook status to make pancakes. I haven't made them in a while. And man, they were good.

4. The kids asked for hard boiled eggs today for lunch. And avocados. And prunes. They ate it.

5. I've washed 3 loads of laundry, hung them out to dry. (for my new readers, that's the way we do it here in Chile.) And folded two loads that were dry and waiting on me. (Read: hanging since yesterday) Swept the hallways, kitchen, laundry area, master bedroom and bath. Mopped the kitchen and my bathroom. Changed the sheets on the bed. And sat down.

6. I washed the dishes 3 times today. Cooked dinner. Realized that the package of ground beef I took out, was too small for meatloaf. We had spaghetti instead.

7. Eddie complimented me profusely on the taste. He promptly gobbled every bit down. Usually it's a struggle to get Mr. Bird eater to eat all of his food. Alexa is the better eater of the two. She was hard pressed to finish. Go figure.

8. I'm leaving for the states on Monday night. I haven't packed a thing.

9. I still have another load of laundry yet to do. Rugs.

10. Oh, and I cleaned the honey off from the footboard of my bed. Don't ask.

7 days.

On Monday November 16, myself and the two kiddos will be flying. Yeeeeeeeeeees! It's true. And actually this trip was pretty much a bonus. As it turns out, dh has some kind of a class to attend for a while and didn't want us to stay alone here in Chile. So take a guess where we are going!?

Did ya guess? Did ya? Did ya?? Oh well, that was an easy one. Yes, we are going home to Tucson. Well, you know what they say... home is where the heart is.

Oh looky there.......

Helloooooo baby................. momma misses you! Yes she does. Mommy is going to get in you and drive you and love you and put the windows down, and turn on the music and we are going to go to the mall. And after that, we are just going to go and it doesn't matter where we end up. I love you Chevy babyyyyyyyy. Er. Um. Excuse me. I just really miss driving.

And did anyone check the calendar?? Because I know that I did. Why looky loo there.... it's time for Thanksgiving. Yes. It's time to be thankful for all the wonderful blessings in our lives. And I am greatly blessed. I have an amazing family. I do. Even though we all do not see eye to eye on everything, we are still family. And I love every one of them. I am overjoyed that I have the ability to be able to come back and spend another holiday with them. More importantly, my children and I are healthy. So yes, I have many many things to be thankful for.

Oh hey! In looking at the calendar, did you also notice that I'm arriving just in time for November 20? Can we say holy hotness jail bait! Wow! I can't wait to see this movie.

It's my favorite time of the year. Really. And not just because they are releasing a movie with a bunch of hot guys in it. I swear. I love Turkey day. I can't wait to get my hands on some shopping too. I've been cut off over here. Mainly because the prices here are way higher than in the states. But also, because there is no Target. So it's just not the same.

Yes. That's how I roll. I'm going to put on my red heels, red embellished sweater top, and puffy red skirt, and I'm hitting the big red dot. Or no. I may just wear jeans. But still, Target is on the agenda.

And then after that, I will be going here. Because I love this store too. Why? I just do. So that should be good enough for you. It's good enough for me. And my kids like the weird mannequin people that they have on display. Let's hope they still have them when we go back.

I won't even talk about the food. Let's just not.

So that's all I've got for now. I'm going to go pack some stuff. And drool look at the New Moon posters. Anyone with me on this? Will you be seeing it?

So. Just a few questions for today.

Why is it that children can and usually do nap when they are in a daycare or preschool setting? And then when they are at home with you, they absolutely refuse.

What is it about letting kids help you bake, that gets them so excited?

How come kids like to wake up earlier on weekends than they do on week days?

Is screaming mommy as scary as screaming daddy?

Is an ipod/iphone as insanely addictive to an adult, as say... xbox/wii/PS is to a kid? Wait a minute. I already know the answer to that question. Maybe my question should be this... how do we stop it?

And for the record, we do not own a wii, xbox, or a playstation. I'm just sayin'.

And finally, why isn't there any chocolate in this house??

Disastrous. Must go shopping.
