Mornin everyone!

I don't have much time this morning, so I'll try and be brief. (Oh, stop CHEERING!!)

How bout a little breakdown of what's going on these days:

~Monday, I worked at Jayla's school. And I now have a new child to work with. Remember the one who liked to sneeze and cough all over me? Well, she has been moved to another group. Honestly, I can't say that I'm sad about that. :-) I got a new kid in my group so now I've got 3 boys. They're great kids. The new one, however, is a little class clown. I asked him what his name was (even though I already know it) and he says, "Just call me Turkey!" :-) Ok, Turkey it is. Then he decides that he likes the name "Mailbox" better. ANYWAY, I could see, rather quickly, that I was gonna have my work cut out for me with him. But I can handle it. Little does Mr. Turkey Mailbox know, that he'll be sitting next to me next week. Kids this age are so silly...and so CORNY!! :-)
~Tuesday...what did I do on Tuesday? Huh...I dunno! I THINK I went to the grocery store, but I can't remember.
~Yesterday, I met with my friend, Laura for lunch. Laura is taking a class on Multicultruralism. She's take classes to be a counselor. ANYWAY, she needed to "interview" friends of hers that were in a different ethnic group than her. I was her first "subject". It was REALLY interesting. And I think we actually opened eachothers eyes to some things. It's amazing what we take to be the "norm" in our own cultures. I'll have to get more info from her on our interview and I'll give you more insight. But until then, trust me, it was interesting. AND...she bought me lunch! :-). And last night was my weekly Girls Night. We had a BALL!!! No one was really interested in scrapbooking, so we just sat around and talked, laughed and ate (DUH!). Then we played a board game. SO much fun!!! I think we're gonna do that more often.
~Today, I'm going to get my hair done (finally). My daughter is giving me this hair appt as a birthday gift. How sweet, huh? I like to look pretty when I can. :-)
~Tomorrow, I will be working at Jayla's school again. They are having a Native American Day. Not sure what all they'll be doing, but I'm gonna help out. Hmmm, wonder what Mr. Turkey Mailbox will be up to for this event? :-) Then, tomorrow after I pick Jayla up from school, a friend of hers is picking her up to go to a birthday party/movie. THEN, tomorrow evening, my hubby and I are going to dinner for my birthday. We'll be going to the same place we went to last year. Talk about YUMMY!!! Can't wait for that!!
~THEN on Saturday, ALL of my birthday party planning will come to a head. I've been crazily working on making Jayla's Hawaiian Luau just perfect for her. I can't WAIT for it to all come together and to celebrate her turning 6 years old. I'll be sure to take pictures and share them with you. Saturday is also MY 41st birthday!!! I can't believe how quickly my 40th year went by. And last, but not least, I will hopefully be meeting up with Lynilu on Saturday evening. She called me last night and she sounds SO sweet! Just like I thought she would. I'll keep ya'll posted on that front too.

WELL...that's about it for me. I've gotta go get ready for my "prettin up" appointment :-). I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your week and have a GREAT weekend. And remember...
