*Have you done your taxes? They are due tomorrow!! Remember that you need to file 2007 taxes in order to receive your 'big' government rebate (that is all you have to do). We usually keep a little tax money for some fun spending, but I think we will hang on to it this year to...oh, I don't know....pay for gas, summer a/c, the increasing water bill (my garbage bill went up too!).
*Pre-teenhood has begun. My daughter had a sleepover on Friday with a girl we have known since kindergarten. Well, they didn't talk to us and retreated to her bedroom for the duration of the visit. They apparently watched some DVD's. Then they headed over to the friend's house for the day. So, they spend 25 hours together....what did you do? nothing. really? we hung out.
*Apparently Katie Holms and Posh Spice only eat 900 calories a day! That is ridiculous! She must not be playing with her kid...I need that much just to keep up. Eat something!
*I love PBS (and NPR)! This week....I watched Illinois Stories about some fascinating historical homes (I love old houses). And my hub watched Frontline (online!) The Medicated Child. My kids are super into Super Why! We spent Saturday making and hiding super letters.
*Did you all see the SNOW! this weekend? Soccer season has officially been extended into June...if it ever gets started.
*My hub wants me to give a shout out to Mr. Rooter! Thank you for saving our basement from the wrath of the sewer (and the packages of baby wipes the boys flushed down!).
*Speaking of the bathroom....we learned that it is perfectly normal not to be bowel trained until 7 years old...especially for boys. Our dr told us to back off our 4yo and put him back in pull ups (which he didn't want but the dr talked him into it). We were really surprised by that. We were so close to being out of diapers...oh well. He still goes au natural at bedtime (he has actually been sleeping naked...is that weird?).
Have a great week!!
