It's Friday!

It's Friday!  Although it felt like Friday all day yesterday to me anyway, since my kids are out of school today for parent teacher conferences.  Yay 3 day weekend?  But you know what else Friday means?  That's right!

Time to share the bright, and not so bright things we did this week.  I've had some good ones, in both senses.

I did spend so much time on OHiH that I was late in picking up my kids.  Well, not late late - I just left late.  I still got there on time.  Luckily we live very close to the school!  But that place is addicting!

I did lock the door and hide in the bathroom to get 5 minutes peace from my youngest who was having a tantrum earlier today.  I did not actually get any peace.  Three year olds can yell through 2 shut doors quite well.

I did make zucchini bread, pumpkin spice muffins, and banana bread this week.  I did not gain 5 pounds from it... yet :)

I did buy 3 new candles, inspired by Anemone Pie's most recent entry.  But I am an idiot who didn't stop to think that mulled cider probably meant cinnamon scented (in my defense, in doesn't smell like cinnamon, just smells really good!) and so now I do have a headache.  I will be passing that one on to my mom!

And if my children don't figure out how to get along... I will be moving out and changing my name!  But I guess that would be something for next Friday's Yes I Did, right? :)

Head on over to Jeanette's to check out what everyone else has been up to this week, and to join in yourself!



It is bad when the only place you can escape from the kids in the the bathroom isn't it? Mine bang on the door still:(

last week i grounded my girls from speaking to each other and eventually all forms of communication. it was quite peaceful!

Oh yeah, he was banging on the door. And announcing "I'm crying Mommy" So, no peace was had.

Heather - I wish that worked! Mine are too young to do that. Best I can do is send them to opposite ends of the house, so instead of yelling at each other from 3 feet apart they do it from one of the house to the other. Hmmm.. I'm not sure that was such a good plan in retrospect. It's going to be a long winter. :)

I haven't gotten to use the bathroom alone in over 2 years! Great post, thanks for playing along!

Jennifer said...

Only 2 years? Ah that's nothing. I haven't done it in about 8! Although Joshy's getting old enough I'm starting to insist on having privacy, whether he likes it or not!

Thanks for starting this carnival, it's fun!
