“It made Ms.M Happy”

My son’s teacher was happy with him  and praised him because he dressed himself. You may wonder why he had to dress himself at school…well he “pee-peed on himself”. If Ms M can find the silver lining in my boy’s pee accident, I guess so can I.

Spending the evening with my boys last night was kind of fun – no major freak-outs. Except for my three year-old telling the baby to “get out” of his toys…And the baby kept coming back. He is persistent, that little one. I had to separate them before it came to shoving and crying. Ah boys 🙂

My husband went to Target last night which is why I was home alone with the kids. Upon returning home, he says “I can see the appeal. I get how you can spend so much time there”. uhhh….yeah! Target is awesome!!! He got his item on sale AND got a gift card. SCORE! (the score is for me, since I’ll be using the gift card)

Oh yeah, before I forget…Cyber Monday was so fun! I learned something new yesterday – EBATES!!!!!! You get cash back for shopping online through the site. Try it!! www.ebates.com I will probably be doing most of my christmas shopping online through ebates, and come February 15, 2010…cha-ching! cash money in my mailbox!!!

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, today is world AIDS day. Over 30 million people worldwide are living with and dying from HIV/AIDS. Please support research efforts, support AIDS orphanages and charities, and support those you might know that may be infected.

“Noooooooo! I don’t wanna go to school”

You and me both, kid.

After a long weekend – no pre-school/daycare/work since 3pm last Wednesday – Monday morning proved to be a bit difficult.  First of all, last night I stayed up waaaaaaay past my bedtime last night so getting out of bed this morning was challenging.

I made it to work eventually, and parking was actually not a nightmare.  On to saving the world one experiment at a time.

It’s fun to hear everyone’s thanksgiving stories. So far, I have heard the stomach flu story, the drunken husband story, the no-turkey thanksgiving story and the black friday shopping story. I must say, my Thanksgiving weekend was pretty uneventful in light of what others had going on.

Today I want to accomplish a few things: Shop cyber monday deals (christmas gifts for the kids/hubby/in-laws) – jcpenney, gymboree, macy’s, oldnavy and target all have great deals today; do some key experiments; do something nice for the hubby; clear out my email inbox.

PS: I also hope to get out the christmas decorations. I LOVE that it is officially christmas season. I intend to enjoy every single day of it 🙂
