    Good morning! :coffee:

    I'm about to hop in the shower before taking Duckie to her last handwriting camp session. I'll use the three hours to get some things done in town., then I'll spend some much needed time cleaning this afternoon before VBS for Duckie this afternoon. :)

    Other than that, I'm just trying to get over another little bout of arthritic symptoms from the night before last. I'm so stiff. Ugh! My gynecologist thinks it may be from my potassium levels and birth control. We shall see!

    Have a great day! :salute:

    G'day, TM and all to follow.

    I'm glad Duckie has been enjoying the handwriting sessions. I hope it is helping. And you're feeling stiff too - I've been blaming mine on the cold weather, although it usually doesn't bother me. I saw the GP today, she was wondering if my medications are responsible.

    It's cold. Last night the temperature here dropped to the lowest yet. Tonight is a close second. Brrr. Outside, it just began to rain. However, it's not going to last. Nope - it's stopping already. The radar shows a small patch right over us and nothing more.

    husband is watching Jamie Oliver's program where he kills chickens. I pass. Cultural differences again - a show like that works differently for a British audience. I've taken guided tours through a chicken processing plant and still been able to eat chicken. I used to help my father do it on a backyard farm scale.

    difficult child 3 has finally finished his film! And now, he's working on putting in some extra bells and whistles. Because this film is mainly to show that he can handle the technology, he's decided to not only show off the really good job he's done by burning to to a DVD, he's going to put in a "special features" section. He was even going to put in a range of subtitle options if he could. Cheeky brat. We've arranged with the school to drop in with the finished DVD on Friday, as we drive north. husband & I saw the finished film this evening for the first time and we want another two copies. One to take with us to show other family members and another, to take down to the train track next time for the blokes there. The film is about the special weekend they had there, when difficult child 3 filmed it.

    Two days to go and then we're off for a week's break. No break for difficult child 3, though. Schoolwork follows him everywhere.

    Tomorrow morning husband & I are seeing our pain specialist. mother in law is coming along because she needs to do some shopping. difficult child 3 has agreed to stay home to get more work done. Tomorrow - cold but dry. I'm actually looking forward to getting some things done.

    Enjoy your Wednesday.

    Good Morning,

    TM-Sounds like another busy day for you! I'm sorry you are so stiff and hope you are feeling better soon.

    Marg-The dvd sounds really cool. difficult child must be having lots of fun with it if he wants to do all the extras!

    Today is easy child's birthday! She turns 15 today and is very excited. Don't you know it's a national holiday in her eyes? I asked her to do some chores last night and she thought she should be excused since today is her birthday. We told her it wasn't her birthday yet so she needed to do them:rolleyes: She made herself a cheesecake for today instead of wanting a birthday cake!

    This morning difficult child has a therapist appointment. and then his caseworker is taking him to lunch so that we can take easy child out to lunch for her birthday. Later easy child wants to go to a movie with some friends.

    I'm trying to figure out when I'll get my workout in:treadmill:

    Wishing everyone a day filled with laughter and smiles.:kisses:

    Good Morning All!

    Tired Mommy - Good luck today - hope the doctor finds you some help.

    Marg - One year when I was about 13 or 14 yrs old, my sisters and I had to help butcher chickens. My job was dipping in boiling hot water and pulling like crazy to get all the feathers off before they became too cold to pull easily.
    The DVD sounds great! Good luck with your pain specialist.

    Wiped Out - Happy Birthday to easy child - You have a busy day in your household.

    My head cold is getting bigger - I was up in the middle of the night coughing and clearing my throat. This a.m. I took some cough medicine. The neighbor girl is joining difficult child and my niece this morning. difficult child is bowling and the girls will visit at the bowling alley.

    difficult child is starting to annoy the girls this morning so I am hoping the bowling will be a good distraction. I will have to remind niece for tomorrow that she needs to keep difficult child busy or she and the neighbor girl will have a disastor on their hands.
