Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Good morning! Feel free to click on the icon above to join in on Carissa's Miscellany Monday! I'm not sure how much 'miscellany' I have for today, but we'll get on with it! =)

~I hate fireworks.  (I know, "Every party has a pooper"...) I hate the noise, the bugs, and especially the annoying music. I think I played in the band for one too many parade or something, but whatever it is, I can't stand it. Fortunately at this point the kids don't like them either, so this self-proclaimed schedule tyrant didn't have to keep them up past bed time.

~Halle will be having a commercial birthday party extravaganza. I am not excited about this... I had visions of a Martha-esque ladybug party, complete with perfect party food and tutu. But the other day at the local Big-Box chain store, my girl happened to see the entire aisle of Toy Story Party supplies and has been talking about 'Jessie Toy Story Party' ever since. Remy has been encouraging it, of course, and who am I to deny my little princess?! So we've become those people. 

~Remy begins swim lessons today. He is really excited, but the catch is that it's one of the classes that requires parent participation. (We weren't sure how he'd do in a class by himself because he's so timid...) So I'm hoping this momma is bathing suit ready- I may have to squeeze in an extra workout before class! =)

~Man, I'm a whiner today, no?! I really am in a pretty terrific mood, despite the three things above! Halle was sick yesterday, but she seems to be feeling better this morning, and Trace is off today, so who knows what the day holds! I love a clean calendar! Ooh, speaking of, maybe I'll put 'cleaning' on the calendar~ I love that! ;)  Hope y'all have a wonderful day!


  1. Weird, just posted you a comment and it disappeared so maybe you'll get two comments from me!

    I'm with you on the fireworks - although, I did enjoy watching my SIL shoot a box off this year but one box was definitely enough for me and the kids.

    I'm having the same struggle between the Minnie Mouse party and the big extraveganza. The struggle is with myself though since my daughter isn't old enough to have that kind of opinion! It all comes down to time this year...

    Good luck with swimming lessons! Both of my kids swim now and we're at the point of once a week lessons. My son loves them but my daughter screams the entire lesson. The instructor wants me to get in with her this week to see if that helps. Oh joy.

    Happy Monday!

  2. You wear me out. Extra workout, cleaning... LOL! Hope you have a good day!

  3. No, you are not whining at all,I don't like fireworks either. Oh, well, just think how easy this birthday party will be for you and it's what she wants. :o) Blessings to you for a wonderful week!

  4. Hope the little one is better now. Thanks for sharing your randomness.



  5. I love to look at fireworks, but I could do without the noise and the smoke! I don't know how many times I've tried to talk my kids into doing something I wanted to do on their birthdays. I think over the years and after the first two kids, I've relaxed a little bit. I am sure Halle will have a wonderful party. Can you come and clean my house? Have a great day!

  6. Birthday parties for my boys are always so stressful for me to try to plan-- that is until I give into the 'commercial' esk parties and then the kids all have a great time and I realize that the latter was really for me and not them!

  7. I love the look of real fireworks, but some people just overdo it. I don't think it really matters what kind of birthday party you throw as long as the child is happy. Birthdays do not necessarily have to be crazy, but I do think they should be special and make you smile.

    Have a blessed day,

  8. I love fireworks but not the sound and the bugs and music. LOL :) My kids are iffy about them.

    I'm participating in Monday Miscellany too, if you wanna check it out.

  9. girl, you know i'm so with you on the fireworks. halle is going to have a cute party!!! : ) hope the swim lessons went well!


I love to hear what you have to say~ Thanks for leaving your mark!
