Things have been going pretty good so far this week. This morning the kids even got their school stuff out and started working on it before I got up and without being asked or told. Holy cow! Woo hoo. They willingly read just about anything and will ask plenty of questions but when it comes to sitting down at the table to do things I often get a fuss....more times than not it is from Morgan and is about math. She's doing really good with it so far though and seems to be noticing that herself...a little boost to her self-confidence. I hope it continues. Both kids really enjoy science which is nice. :-)

We had my brother and the 2 boy dogs over yesterday for dinner. He's been on his own for over a week while his girlfriend & the 2 girl dogs are down in Ft. Lauderdale helping her mom out as she recovers from back surgery. We had Morgan's meal for dinner and it was pretty good and fun. She had picked blankets in pigs (ham & honey mustard wrapped around breadsticks) and cheese fundue (cheese fondue with plenty of dippers...we had ham, apple slices, broccoli, carrots, and french bread). Tomorrow night we are getting together with my mom and brother for a nice family meal. We are all trying to save money so no Fri nights out but getting together and sharing meals at home. Heck, healthier meals, definitely cheaper and we don't have to wait in line or deal with smokers. Yes, it is true unfortunately, there is still smoking in restaurants in TN. YUCK!! Can you believe it?? It is seriously a difficult thing to get used to after living in NY & FL...both smoke-free for restaurants. In this day & age I can't believe that it is still like this. I'm not sure there is too many things that are nastier than having to smell cigarette smoke while trying to enjoy a meal. And having 3 asthmatics in the family makes it even more fun.

Morgan keeps asking when her glasses will be in. I'm hoping that we don't have to wait too long. Even though the place we took our prescriptions to and picked out frames has a lab on-site , they have to send our's out to the vision insurance provider's lab...whee. Sweet girl just wants to be able to see without everything being a blur.
