*to be read in a whisper*

Shhhh! It’s 4:00 am and everybody is still sleeping.

By everybody, I mean PookieBear (right next to me); Capt and Boy (downstairs).

They drove down to see me yesterday while I was at work. When I got home dinner was ready for us. Capt had made melt in your mouth Chicken Cordon Blue with scalloped potatoes, mixed vegetables and rice. To say that it was delicious would be an understatement. It was the best meal. And so thoughtful too.

During dinner (oh this is so cute) Boy tasted the chicken and announced that he didn’t like it. Which usually means that he won’t eat it. Then I suggested that he use his imagination and pretend that the mother of the girl [name withheld] that he is madly in love with (he’s only 9 and is in love with a girl in his school) made this dinner for him. He smiled and ate the chicken and said, "Theresa’s raising me right". What kid says that? Isn’t he adorable?

PookieBear and I went to bed at 7:30 and watched Akeelah and the Bee until American Idol. Then we watched that until I became comatose. As soon as she wakes up (hopefully soon) we will finish watching the movie, because it is killing me that I don’t know how it ends yet. Killing me!

Then we are going to Curves at 6:30 to work off all that glorious butter Capt used last night.

I took a vacation day today, (which between selling my house and buying a new one is so very much needed) so the rest of the day is free!

All of you have a wonderful day today.

Sounds like you had a wonderful evening. I like how you got him to eat the chicken. I also hate not to know the end of a movie or tv show - makes me nuts when I fall asleep.

What a wonderful surprise for you, and hope you enjoy your much needed vacation day. Am not getting one of those till March 19, spring break, at which time, the whole family is sneaking away up to Hemlock for a few days of skiing...(how does one "ing" ski anyway?)
I normally don't watch American Idol but caught LaKisha as I was channel surfing last night...OH MY GOODNESS that woman can belt it out!!
