Basically it's Friday!



We are a group of parents that chat and support each other.
We have been at this for a while so some of us are out of the diapering stage.
...some were out and are back in again.
Every once in a while we actually get to answer a diaper question or two in here.
If you are looking for a very diverse and open group come on over and chat.

Okay. Nearly done with my 72 cookies. Last pan is in. Potato soup is almost done for supper. E is nearly done 4 days worth of homework. Once he is in bed I have school work to do. Phew!
Lots of the vegan recipes use marg and shortening. They taste fine.

You get lunch when you're at work? That's a winning job!

Sounds like what I do here for every meal too.....lucky you for getting paid to do it

They must think it necessary though if they employ you to do it. I imagine it was rough trying to take care of them kids and the others too. Some kids just need extra attention.

Are you enjoying it?

Two hour delay here. Means MH doesn't have school. Only raining now but at bus time this morning it is supposed be freezing rain so not so good. Thus the delay.


Dress from the bucket washed up great for MH for the concert on Monday.

I have no idea what time I am supposed to report for training. I will go in an hour late or so.

Jerry has his holiday potluck today as well. He will dance again. He loves dancing for the elderly. MH will go with him. It will he good that I can get her dressed.

It's Friday! Yay!

Sorry about the freezing rain warning Jen. We are supposed to get some here tomorrow. Ru has to go in to work, so hopefully it won't hose up her commute then.

I have my 60 cookies packed up for school, my lunch made, and soon it will be time to head for work. E is already off on the bus. Today after work Ru will pick E up for a bit, and then we are taking him back to TKD for their parent's night out program. While he is there, Ru and I are going to try and find outfits for the wedding on Jan 5th.

Janine, I have to admit that while I find I don't miss the butter flavour in something like a vegan cake, I do miss it in vegan cookies. To me, the flavour and texture just aren't the same.

That does sound awesome Mel
Janine I do really like it. I am going to mention to the principal though that maybe the 5th and 6th graders should be told that I actually ha e some authority and am not just a random busybody.

Re: Basically it's Friday!

Jess all our staff have the same authority and responsibility for the students. It should be that way, whether they are the janitor, teacher, assistant, shadow, secretary, principal. Hopefully that is what those students are taught

Re: Basically it's Friday!

MOrning mamas. Killing time before going to read a story at school today.

Wish I could trade places with Mel. I'll take cookies, vegan or not.

Jess, I am always frustrated with my kids table behavior at home, yet every time I take them out or they eat at the church, everyone always comments how well behaved my kids are. I guess because they are wearing shoes they don't touch their feet, the chairs are different it's harder for them to sit sideways, and often they are eating finger foods so utensils are not an issue and whatnot. But yeah, I am amazed at how parents allow their kids to run around during a meal, crawl under the table, yell and scream, etc. How sad is it that they get praise because they aren't running amok?

Re: Basically it's Friday!

I have never had my "authority" questioned, legit or no, when I use my mom's bossy voice and use her technique of calling tweens and teens "little boy" and such. "Little boy, we do not run in the halls here. It is not safe and you coud get hurt or hurt others." You would be amazed how quick an adolescent will stop just so you won't call them little boy.
