Zander is sick but refuses to stay down. He's horribly offended that anyone is telling him he's sick. He is sad to miss the basketball game and just now asked, "How will I go to drama if I'm sick?" I think he'll be well by then.

Jared has a sore throat but won't stay home and sleep. He promised to come home from his game tonight and sleep all day until the next game. ::snort:: Mike took all the kids and went to the game.

I ordered books for unit 3 and 4 today. It was a God thing that I happened to decide today - and TOG is moving their resource book business...Tomorrow. Tomorrow would have been the last day to order until the 20th. Jamin is zipping ahead REALLY FAST to finish school by the end of February so that he can begin to work full time to save for college.

I cooked meals. I went to the gym. I messed around a bit trying to teach myself new skills....ugh.

I'm still trying to figure out, too, why THIS blog has no title box to type a title into....and the other three I publish DO.....I've tried changing templates and such and it doesn't.....

Nolan has requested "Death By Chocolate". I'm off to figure out what that means...and frankly....he often requests food by one name and what I come up with is not what he is "Plain muffins". I made "oat bran muffins." Those aren't the "plain" ones......

This is for he and Josiah's birthday dinner on Sunday. I think Josiah will like it too. ::snort::

Choosing Joy!

Saying a prayer for Zander, right now. Poor kiddo - it's especially hard for our "busier" kids to be sick and have to lay low (lie low?, no, "lay low" I think...)

And De'Etta,

I keep intending to send a hand-written thank you, but in case I don't... the book arrived, and thank you very much! I may get it read (finish) while Wyatt has his 'dental procedure' tomorrow :0)

Hope you don't catch what they have,

Praying for you all. I hope you can figure out just what he means by death by chocolate, of course with a name like that it must be good!

I think death by chocolate is a pastry most likely a cake etc. I've had it but don't really remember which it is.
