Is it just me, or is this week incredibly long? It's not even Wednesday! We got granted a "jeans" week at work. I'm taking full advantage of it. I love jeans- you know what I love more than jeans? Flip-flops. :)
The thing I'm thankful for today is my family. I love them so! Even the lame ones. :) I'm glad I have a mom who listens and loves me. I'm glad for my sister who I talk to daily. I'm glad for my brother for our fun teletubbie jokes. I'm glad for my little sister who is always keeping me on my toes. I all my in-laws, my niece and nephew. I love my aunts, uncles, cousins, and cousins-in-laws and their kiddos! I love my Grandma's (and all my grandparents who are waiting in heaven :) )I'd even go so far as to say I love Drew's family, too! There's going to be a new addition to the Jackson clan in March that I'm pretty excited about as well(not ours!) Thank you all for being in my life, enriching it, and making up part of me!
Elisabeth couldn't be bothered with sitting down to eat today. She had to take what was on Drew's plate and eat it at a chair (she put her food on the seat of a chair and ate it as she walked around). We also went to the store this afternoon to get some cranberry items for some math I'm doing tomorrow with my students. The Mother's animal cookies were on sale, so I threw some in the cart. She immediately starting saying cook-cook (cookie) and signing please over and over again. This child has never had these cookies. How in the WORLD does she know what they are, and that she needs them so badly?
I put them on the conveyor belt to get scanned and she screamed at me (cause she was trying to figure out how to open them to eat). So afterward, we get in the car and immediately she starts up with the cook-cook again and saying please. I gave in :) She even SAID please to Drew in the car after we went and picked him up...it was pretty cute!
This is our second to last produce box for the year. I told the lady who drops off the boxes that I'm going through withdrawls already and I don't know what I'm going to do for 26 weeks until it starts up again! She agreed!
Today in our box, we got 2 leeks, 3 pounds of rome apples, 1 bunch ofcarrots, 1 bunch of beets, 1 bunch of collard greens, 1 acorn squash, salad mix, 2 pounds of yellow finn potatoes) ---our produce drawers are exploding, and I couldn't be happier!
