7 really, really Quick Takes Friday
1. Sarah has spent the last three weeks talking about her Halloween costume. She has already gone from Angel to Zombie to Witch to Frankenstein. Yesterday she was looking on a costume website and found a vampiress dress she just had to order right then. She got a a little huffy when I told her she wasn't buying anythng until closer to Halloween. "And besides," I said, "I thought you wanted to be Frankenstein not a vampiress."
"Mom," she said in her duh-you-so-dumb-voice, "I'm going to be Frankenstein but I want to wear that dress while I'm being Frankenstein."
Well, duh, of course! Why didn't I know that?
So imagine my surprise when I walked into my church's consignment sale this morning and found a $3 dress that looked very similar to the $30 dress she was eyeing online. I also scored several other costumes for a few bucks each.
2. I went to Mass at the kid's school this morning. Peter's class led the liturgy and Peter was responsible for saying part of the prayer. Peter also had to recite a poem in front of his class today. He had it memorized very well. I just hope he recites it without mumbling. I also hope he wore his deodorant today! That's a lot of public speaking for one day.
3. As soon as I saw Peter coming into Mass this morning I knew he was in trouble. He only gave me a halfhearted wave. And I was correct. As we were leaving Mass he told me he forgot to bring home his spelling book home last night and thus had a homework miss this morning. His teacher only allows 3 homework misses a week before you have to go to detention. Luckily it's Friday and he can start fresh on Monday!
Okay, this is a really quick 7 Quick Takes because it's time to go pick up the kids from school. Where has the day gone? Oh that's right! I went to Mass, a consignment sale, the dump, Sheetz for coffee and the grocery store. Time flies when you are getting things done!
