I'm SO glad it's Friday. Not only is it the weekend, it's a four day weekend for my girls, due to the teacher work days on Monday and Tuesday. Yes, I still have to work, but at least I won't have to get the girls up and moving early on those days.
Speaking of work, I'm still putting together the mailing to 1,256 people:
I should finish by the end of the weekend, so the mess will be gone soon enough. If not, then the girls and I will work in our jammies on Monday and we'll eat M&Ms as we do so. It's the Jenworld version of Take Your Daughters To Work Day.
I'm multi-tasking while I stuff envelopes and have been cooking the pumpkins:
This little dude is destined to be a pie in a few weeks. I'm actually looking forward to baking pies for Thanksgiving, which is a sure sign that the Apocalypse is upon us.
Best of all, I got to play with little Ava this morning, who was happy at first:
... but then didn't like it when I sang "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell:
Apparently my singing skills need work. A lot of work. Perhaps I should lip synch in the future.
I also ran out to Tar-zhay today and picked up this, that, and the other, including enough wrapping paper to wrap the Osmond family's gifts. (Does anyone other than me remember their Christmas special on TV every year? Supposedly all that those millionaire children got was a new toothbrush and robe.)
One thing I bought at Target was a pair of sneakers for a child at school who doesn't have any. I dropped them off at 2:00 and, while there, decided to check my girls out early and get a jump on the weekend.
So here we are on a Friday afternoon, with Target bags, backpacks, coats, sneakers, and the remnants of a 1,256 piece mailing all over the kitchen. The place is a disaster and I could not care less.
Happy Friday everyone!
