Go EAGLES!!! Growing up around the Philly area, I was so excited about the Eagles winning. I know that not may gave them half a chance against the Giants, but Donnovan and the gang came through for me. Good luck next week against the Cards. On the AFC front, the Ravens look like they will be facing the Steelers. I know that the game isn't over yet, only 1 quarter left, but the way the Chargers are playing, looks like the Steelers will steal away this one. Living in centeral Maryland, Steelers vs Ravens, can't go wrong there. The best senerio for the Super Bowl would be Eagles vs Ravens. One will see.
Yea, I love football. Grew up watching it my entire life, can't help but enjoy watching it. I love having a room full of people watching football with people rooting for each team. The yelling back and forth, not much better. My son was rooting for the Chargers (too many kids at school like the Steelers), so I had to egg him by rooting for the Steelers. It's soooooo much fun.
Right now, my sister is working with my girls and their spelling words. Words like d-i-s-t-a-n-c-e, a-u-t-h-o-r, d-a-u-g-h-t-e-r, a-w-e-s-o-m-e, and n-a-u-g-h-t-y. They are only in 3rd grade, and some of the words that they have to spell is amazing. They have 20 words every week, and spelling is not Michelle's best subject. She is a master drawer, but spelling and math are just a struggle. Lizzy is better at spelling. Lizzy actually uses her phonics and is able to figure out the spelling of the words, and the words she is not able to figure out, writting them 5 times is usually enough to make them stick. Michelle, no amount of writting them helps. She just has a block to spelling. Every week it is like pulling teeth to do spelling, at least they have the some words every week, the joy of twins in the same class.
Things are getting a little better emotionally. There are times that my emotiona just come flooding, but getting back to work this weekend has helped to get my mind off things. My mom drove back to Florida on Friday, and she is home now. I still worry about her, but know that she has good friends in Florida.
My bathroom has been on hold. The trouble with getting the shower base really put a stop to things. While my dad was here, he was able to do the electrical work for me...Thanks Dad. I now have the shower base in place, and just need to put up the durarock up, then the tiling can begin. I will try this week to work on getting the durarock in place, weather permitting.
Well, that's about all for now.
