Here we are mere days from Thanksgiving. Princess Nagger is not only looking forward to the turkey, but the fact that after today, she’ll have six days in a row off from school. I’m looking forward to having six days in a row of not having to round her up for school in the morning, then coordinating Little Dude’s nap in the afternoon to accommodate her return bus. And Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving.
Did you see that they found a new (old) nest of baby dinosaurs? Princess Nagger was excited to see this:
Pretty cool, no? It’s a 70-million-year-old nest filled with the remains of baby Protoceratops that gives clues to the dinos’ early behavior. You can read all about it here if interested.
Princess Nagger had a great birthday last week. Her favorite gift was the ginormous Angry Bird plush we got her:
She crashed out on the couch after we got home from her birthday dinner. The next morning she woke up with a fever and no voice – which explained why she was uncharacteristically quiet at dinner the night before. Poor thing was home from school the next two days, but she was feeling better by the weekend – just when it was passed on to me. Aren’t I lucky?
Because of the sickness that descended on our household, we had to postpone Princess Nagger’s birthday party – so we’ll be doing that this weekend if all her guests of choice are available, what with the holiday weekend and all.
We have a new driveway! Our tired old weedy gravel driveway is no more. We went from this:
So much better. No more dodging mud puddles on a rainy day with little muddy footprints on the interior of the cars.
I’ve been enjoying Christmas shopping online – usually I’ll have most of my gifts bought by Thanksgiving – but I’ve been a bit behind the past couple of years, and this year is no exception. Considering Thanksgiving is just two days away and all. I think I’m at least half done, if not more. I have been spending a lot of time perusing geek.com – for my geeky friends and family.
Just looking at all the funky gadgets with their funny descriptions makes it enjoyable, but when you put something in your shopping cart and forget about it, the follow up email messages are even funnier. I found some great things as gifts – but I can’t reveal them yet, in case those same geeks happen to be reading this.
That’s going to wrap it up for this week – I know I was going to share more Princess Nagger birthday pictures and commentary, but you’ll just have to come back tomorrow to see the highlights. My sinus infected foggy head is having trouble focusing and distractions by shiny object are…….what was I saying again?
Before I forget, be sure to link up and see if I can focus on your randomness. Be forewarned, though, in my foggy brained state my comments on your posts may be a bit on the dorky side.
We’re still rebelling while Keely is still hiatus-ing (and maybe, just maybe she might be making an illustrious return soon), if you have a smorgasbord in your brain and want to let it out, c’mon and join in the fun! Rebel On!
