Friday Five

February 26, 2010 Uncategorized 9

 I love Fridays for so many reasons………..the end of the school and work week.  The beginning of a couple of days with more time with my family, and of course the time that I take to reflect back on my week……….and share.
This week seemed to drag at some points………..and them wham………it’s done.  Our weather went from mid 70’s early on, and most recently plummeting the past two nights to the 30’s……….ugh, I do live in Florida………LOL.  No worries, stick around and it will change again!
1. I’m enjoying the Olympics……..ok some things I just don’t get like Curling, but I like the ski jumps and the snow boarding, and figure skating, not so much ice dancing.  My husband described it as Dancing with the Stars on Ice…LOL.  I tear up with the back stories, especially the brave Canadian skater, Joannie Rochette, what a lovely skater, and how emotional that skate was just two days after her mother’s sudden death.  I cried along with most everyone else.  Are you watching much Olympic coverage?
2. Nick saw the Orthodontist on Wednesday, well he sees him every 6 weeks, we are just so close…ha ha, no it’s a standard trip back for adjustments and new wires and bands.  He is doing well, it will be 24 months in July, and that was the short end guesstimate on how long his adjustments would take.  The Dr told him if he does the hard work, wearing the bands as much as he needs, he could be out in 5 months…………pretty exciting stuff.  Nick’s mouth is looking so much better………….pictures to come! 
3 In other ortho news…………I paid off our balance.  Kevin wondered why it was important to me, we were plugging along paying our $200 a month, no interest with @ 7 months to go, but I wanted it done, fini, so that  $200 is ours to use each month.  
4. Bella’s groomer came on Wednesday.  I love this woman, she comes to my house, uses my laundry room to groom Bella, uses my sink to wash her and she cleans up, never leaves any sign she’s been here and is so good with Bella and charges less than anyone in town I’ve priced!  Bella is too fast most of the time to get a good picture, the little toot………..I’m still working on it!  As a follow up, 2 weeks after her surgery, she is just great!  
5.  This 5th thing is actually two and I’m not ready to tell all as of yet, but some exciting news came this week for one of my daughters, involving travel and an internship this summer.  She is over the moon!  Details are being worked out, and particulars will be shared!  The other news is about Nick and school…………and it is also about a new opportunity, but until all the components are finalized I’m keeping my fingers still…………… please just think good thoughts for these adventures for two of my kids!
Happy weekend all……………..cherish the good times, chin up during the more challenging times and love your family with all your might!!

    I love to watch the figure skating too. Mostly pairs and women’s singles. But I don’t hate ice dancing the way most people do. I didn’t get to watch too much, but I saw some. I agree Joannie’s story was very moving.

    Good luck to your two kids. I hope it all works and I’m looking forward to hearing the details.
