Speaking of school, we still have not heard anything from Jesus the Good Shepherd (where we're hoping Alise will go to PreK-3 this fall). Allie's mom, Maria, was dropping Allie off at the same time I was dropping Alise off this morning, I asked her if she had heard anything from the school (Allie and Alise will be going to JGS together). She said, "No, but I called them. They are scheduling orientation sometime around March or April." About that time, Lori, Emma's mother walked up, and I had to rush out because I had an eye doctor's appointment at 8:00. But March or April? I can't wait that long to find out if Alise is going to get in!! I've got to have a plan!! I've got to know where she'll be going to school before then!! Maria acts very confident that Allie is in. Maybe she has a connection that I don't know about, but until I get the call that says, "Ms. Horton, we have an opening for Alise," I'm not counting my chickens just yet. Besides, other schools will be calling I need to be able to tell them no, that they can give Alise's spot to someone else. Ugh!! I'll given them until the first of February and if I haven't heard from them, I'll call.
Lucky me! I'm off work on Monday and Tuesday of next week to celebrate my birthday! My original plans were to take tomorrow and Monday, but we've got some training going on right now for some new budget software at work (Leigh, tell David to get ready!!). They are suppose to leave tomorrow around 2:00, so I'm hoping to get away soon after that. I've made a list of all the things that I want to get done those two days...some fun things, some not so fun (like cleaning), but thank goodness I don't have to go to work!! Yes!
Mirya and I have been "ebaying it" again. We've both been looking for beach dresses for the girls for when we take our beach vacation in September. We both found one. I tried to post a copy of my dress, but the picture is protected. I paid $10.85 for my dress including shipping. It's white, sleeveless, with a croached (sp?) bodice. I hope it's a pretty as the picture! I'm still in search of an Easter dress and that's one of the things on my to do list is to get some of Alise's clothes from last year out there on Ebay so I can build myself up a little nest egg, or "stash" as I like to call it, to buy other things. (By the way, Mirya, the pink paris dress you sent me this past Saturday is now going for $34!!)
Alise's favorite phrase this week is "how 'bout dat?" She'll say something and then add that little phrase at the end of it. It's too cute. I think she got it from Ms. Sandy at school. Also, all she talks about is her pink poodle party. I made the mistake of telling her that I was going to have my birthday at church. I said that so she would know that my birthday was Sunday. She has a hissy fit and said, "NO! (there's that word again!) I was NOT having my party at church because SHE was having HER birthay party at church!!" There ya go! I guess it's official, but what on earth am I going to do if it rains? Anyway, I'm trying to talk up Brooklyn's birthday. She'll be going with my mom and dad to her birthday party the first weekend of February. It's time to have back-to-back birthday parties to go to like we did last year! Ugh!
Have a great weekend!
